Where we live...

I have come to realize that I have a love, hate relationship with where I live:

I love living in Tucker, GA because...
...I can get to almost anywhere in Atlanta in 15 to 20 minutes.
...I live half a mile from where I work and Seth is only a few miles from his job.
...we are OTP but seriously we are 2 miles from the perimeter...we live in a house that is bigger than most houses you find ITP at the price we paid.
...I am 10 minutes from the farmer's market and Sherry's roadside stand is right down the street...Sherry's has the best of the best when in season, hot boiled peanuts, Christmas trees, pumpkins, you name it...I am such a sucker for that kind of thing.
...this is the only place I have EVER come across that has a drive through gas station that carries necessities too like milk, butter, and eggs...this is the laziness in me but I truly think the "Milk Jug" as it's called is genius.

I hate living in Tucker, GA because...
...right down the street there are also a plethora of hispanic night clubs. I have nothing against hispanic people in any way, but the clubs are obnoxious and they are very close to the residential areas.
...there are NO good restaurants right down the street. There are a few OK places to eat, but for the most part it's fast food. Thank God for Shorty's.
...the elementary schools are very good, but the middle and high schools aren't. I don't want my kids to go to private school, but I don't care for the upper grade public schools as of right now.
...there are very few neighborhoods that have swim and tennis. I grew up going to the neighborhood pool and eventually playing tennis in my neighborhood. I feel like that is hard to find around here.
...there are a lot of apartment complexes where people run across major roads without looking, they drive like maniacs, and there are always cops around them.
