I was so excited when I found out that I had gotten the job at the medical center I had sent my resume to just a month earlier. I thought that the process would take a lot longer than that, so I was relieved when they told me that not only did I get the job but I would have at least four weeks to get settled in since I was moving 400 miles to take it. I quickly began looking at apartments for rent in Colton California because I figured it would be better to get settled quickly and look for a house after getting to know the area better.
The main thing I wanted was to make sure that the apartment that we would end up getting was in a good school district. My wife and I have an eight year old daughter, and we wanted to give her every possible advantage there is. My wife is the one who found us a nice three bedroom unit at The District at Grand Terrace Apartment Homes. Even though it is just the three of us, we knew we wanted an extra bedroom for a couple of reasons.
The first is because we knew that both my parents as well as my wife’s parents would visit us often, and we wanted them to have a nice room to stay in as well. Since the room would only be used once every month or so, we also wanted it to double as a library. My wife and I are both avid readers, and we have thousands of books. We wanted to have our bookcases in here rather than cluttering up the living room. The third bedroom is large enough for the queen bed and several bookcases along the walls. The best thing is that we were able to get settled in and had a couple of weeks to explore our new town before I had to get started at my new job.
