Thank goodness we've finally moved out of that house. Our landlady's creepy intrusive sister moving in was the last fucking straw for me, and with the money I made doing Revels in December plus our savings, we were finally able to afford to move. We have our OWN APARTMENT now! It has a kitchen (OMG OMG), and a bedroom, bathroom, living room, and a little tiny extra room that we're making into a workshop. I've been cooking so much good food! It's amazing. I lived with nothing but a microwave, hotplate, and mini-fridge for 7 years. SEVEN YEARS! Now I can bake again! I can cook things in more than one pan at a time! I can brown things because the range actually gets hot enough to brown things! I've been cooking mostly healthy things but also I've baked scones and cinnamon rolls. Tony has been working super hard building the workbenches (I have helped a little, but it's his baby), and they're almost done. I think it's really good for him to finally be able to DO something other than work and video games. He says it's so satisfying. I'm so happy. I still have my anxiety of course, and he still needs to get a job up here, so now he's dealing with that long-ass commute that I used to do, but overall... things are looking up. Things are so much better. SO MUCH.
