I moved back down to San Diego and into the neighborhood where I had spent most of my childhood. It was soothing to me, my same church, familiar stores and faces. My girls attended the same elementary school that I did. I lived in this very large apartment complex. I got a good job, I work for a long time as a temp first, and then they hired me on and things were going well.
The apartment was on the small side, and I hated sharing walls and the ceiling, so we decided to move up the street into an area of detached town homes.

Best features: Laundry in apartment itself, pool, no 70's colors.
