Community Bulletin Board

We do have an area on our website where you can list items you want to sell. If you look under resources on AbberlyPlace.com, you will see a drop down screen that will say Community Bulletin Board. From here you can list items that you are wanting to selling (including us…we have some fantastic pieces that we have removed from our models that are practically brand new).

There is a place where you can post job opportunities, events through the area, etc. It is free and we will publicize the items for you. Take advantage of this service we offer. We want to make sure that we are constantly working on things that will make life easier for you. If you have any suggestions, feel free to let us know.

4 Tips to Keeping Your New Year’s Resolutions

Every January 1, likely, you make a resolution. By February 1, you may already have blown it. Let this be the year your resolution sticks. Here’s how.


Monica Buck

You’ve made a New Year’s resolution? Congratulations: Research says you’re 10 times more likely to successfully alter a behavior than you would if you didn’t make a start-of-the-year vow. And maybe that’s why some 45 percent of American adults ring in the New Year with a resolution.

But will they keep it? According to statistics, almost half will give up on their goals within six months. Avoid being one of them. No matter what you’ve vowed—to lose weight? get fit? save money?—these four tips will help you achieve your goal.

1. Be Specific

Vague goals won’t work. “You’ve got to develop a specific action plan for change,” says John Norcross, Ph.D., coauthor of Changeology: 5 Steps to Realizing Your Goals and Resolutions ($25, amazon.com). Map out your strategy before New Year’s arrives. If you want to lose weight, target a precise number of pounds to shed, then set concrete mini-goals and the dates on which you aim to accomplish each of them. Want to save money? Determine the amount you will put aside each month and identify explicit changes in behavior you’ll make to get there, whether that means skipping your afternoon latte or carpooling to work to save on fuel costs.

2. Make Your Goal Public

Share your decision to change with friends and family who can offer support when you’re wavering and encouragement when you’re doing well at sticking to your resolution. “Public commitments are generally more successful than private decisions,” says Norcross.

3. Substitute Good Behaviors for “Bad”

Don’t rely on willpower alone to help you change, advises Norcross. That approach won’t work. Instead, build in a healthy behavior that’s incompatible with the one you want to change. So if eating your usual midafternoon treat runs contrary to your goal of dropping a few pounds, put together a small like-minded group and commit to taking a quick, brisk walk at your normal snack time. Each time you put the brakes on “bad” behavior, you’ll increase your confidence in your ability to make the change.

4. Track Your Progress

Record or chart your changed behavior. “Research indicates that such ‘self-monitoring’ increases the probability of keeping your resolution,” says Norcross. 

“The way to get started is to quite talking and begin.” –Walt Disney

Tree Disposal

If you are one of the residents that prefer a live tree for the holidays, we would like to remind you to dispose of it properly. We will have an area beside the exterior of the compactor areas designated for your tree. If you will just pile the trees there, our landscaping company will be taking them away for us. Please do not place them inside the compactor or in the recycling areas.

Air Filter Changes

The Service Team will be changing air filters in the buildings listed below during the month of December. Please make a note for yourselves if your building is on the list below. We ask that you kennel or secure all pets and please disarm alarm systems for that day.

We change your air filters so that your heating/air conditioning unit works more efficiently. Thank you for your cooperation.

Phase 1
1/9 – 1500 Plantation Pine Circle
1/11 – 1600 Plantation Pine Circle
1/16– 1800 Plantation Pine Circle

Phase 2

1/22 – 1000 Calico Creek Drive

Holiday Decor

Thank you to all of the residents who made Abberly Place shine during the holidays! We love to see others celebrate in their own special way.

THowever, not that the New Year is among us, we ask that you remove any holiday decorations from your patio and front door areas. Of course we don’t mind if keep up winter wreaths and your normal décor year round. We enjoy you all making your home unique! Thank you!
