I lived with my elderly mother for the past few years. She needed someone who could help watch her and keep her safe due to some medical issues she had. But she passed away last month, and her home needed to be sold immediately. I needed to find a new residence fast. I had been looking at the Hernon apartments nearby when I would make my weekly trips to the grocery store. I really liked the look of the place, but I was not sure if I really wanted to stay in the city where I had lived with mom so long.
I sat down to make a pros and cons list for the city of Jacksonville. There were so many things I loved about the city, and there were so few things that I did not love. That was a pretty good sign to me that I should stay put. I loved the beautiful weather. I loved the pine trees and the white sand on the beaches nearby. I knew I would miss out on the many pine trees if I moved to any one of many other cities in Florida. My friends all lived nearby, and I knew I needed them for a support network as well. So, I decided to stay and called to find out about the apartment complex that I had admired so long.
I was invited to come by the apartment complex office to see everything in person. It was located near a pond on the property, and I was delighted to see that it has ducks living in it! The apartment that I was shown looks over a beautiful swimming pool that is lit up at night. And there is also a tennis court there, too. I used to play when I was much younger, and the thought of inviting friends over to play some tennis with me sounded like a lot of fun. I signed up for a place on the spot, and I was approved as a new tenant within hours. I am pretty excited about my move to my new place and starting over again.
