My apartment was a big journey for Me. It was moving from the home I grew up in which I lived in as a child, grew into as an adult and lived in on my own, to gain back a room mate of a sister, then further still have my parents move back in, to transition to a place of my own with two bedrooms, a bath, and a mellow little patio area.
Mr. Chuck’s place, The Rootbeer Recovery Center, Cousin Hangout, Bible Study Group, and many other things has this place been called, but for me it’s been home for a little over 5 years, what a journey of annoying neighbors, fighting, police going door to door, fireworks setting off car alarms, but too friendships and good neighbors – and use of the apartment to have bible study’s, youth kids crash for a movie, and let’s not forget the latest addition, a ginger cat named Tim who made this place his home (more like his castle!)
I’ve been breaking down the living room, going to box up movies and games, I have a broken PS3 I plan to sell for parts on eBay, but the goal is to have the living room cleared out entirely by Saturday to allow me to stage other rooms to empty out and be done with, but making piles of keep which will move with me to the parents place (my place of residence until getting married – ah I miss my room mates there), piles for Yard Sale, and too a BIG bunch of clothes going for Goodwill.
So a lot going on! We are working on the details of the wedding, and doing our best to plan between things like work and school — oh responsibility! 😀 but we are doing good, getting things ready! Now we just have to find a date that works, and fits where God wants us to be! God is good though, this apartment has been home, but as I prepare to build a home with Daisy, a few months of saving and not having bill of two houses, I can save a bit towards our wedding and fixing up our home! Moving Forward with God! Good Stuff for sure!
