So, this might happen sooner than I originally planned. I ended up having to move in with family thanks to my former landlord keeping my apartment in illegal conditions. So I have somewhere to stay that’s pretty much rent and bill free. All I have to pay for right now are my groceries and gas and other purchases. My original plan was to save and find a new apartment, but I think it’s changed.
I think I’m going to save for a down payment on a house instead. I want to get a little cheap fixer upper that I just need to do cosmetic repairs to. Then I can have as big of a dog as I want! And I can plant my garden in the ground! I’m excited. I really hope this works out.
