I may be moving to a group home soon. I'm going there tomorrow for lunch to check it out. I'm really nervous!

I'll actually have my own room but will have a few housemates. The one girl I met was very nice. The home only holds 4 residents so nice and small. The staff seem decent as well.


And thank you Hero!

Congratulations Butterfly 88! :D

My first apartment has been delayed an extra year because of the pandemic.
