Settling into Our New Colorado Home

My wife and I work hard and like a nice place to live. We moved to Colorado to be right there where our corporate clients have their facilities. It was easier for us than the now weekly flights. We contacted the best Denver realtor to get a place that suited our needs, our lifestyle and our budget. Yes, even when you are looking for luxury apartments and condos, you still have a budget. We were keeping our home in the southeast part of the States, and we had expenses for keeping the lawn mowed and other things. Our home was actually now going to be our vacation home.

We had no problem adjusting to the early winters with all the snow. We both like skiing a whole lot. We would take a couple of trips each year to go skiing. Now we ski in Colorado by just getting in our SUV and heading to the closest slopes. (more…)

I Really Got Lucky with My Girlfriend

In truth a lot of my friends think I should be embarrassed to talk about this and they like to make gigolo jokes about it. About five months ago I met this girl at a sorority party on the FSU campus. At first we just talked about school and stuff, but eventually it became something more. I had no clue that she had money, but apparently her parents are both doctors of the sort that make all sorts of money. She has one of those really nice luxury apartments in Tallahassee, I mean this place is gorgeous and it has all sorts of things like a great gym and a full sized pool. There are tennis courts and basketball courts and every other thing. Of course the great thing is that her Mom and Dad are paying for all of it. At first that did not have too much to do with me.

Then a couple of months ago the guy I was living with just started melting down. I never knew that he had mental health issues, because he behaved more or less normally so long as he was taking his medication. (more…)
