So I’ve been a little busy lately ….
The sober home manager deal I mentioned during December didn’t work out. Well, I guess it wasn’t meant to because I just bought a place of my own! Met with my new accountant today, and I’ll be open for biz sometime during February.
You can’t help but notice the church next door as you approach the house. All God’s Children is one of the only “gay churches” in the community and I’m right next door.
The foyer: the first door on the right leads to a small entryway with the exterior door just beyond.
Standing in the dining room, looking out towards the street. The room in the foreground is the living area, with the sunroom in the background, closest to the street.
Can you tell I’m psyched? I can’t wait until the closing. Cross your fingers there are no hiccups in the process. Next up comes the fun part – furnishing and decorating it! Anyone have some spare Knoll or Eames pieces laying around?
I am immensely grateful for the opportunities I’ve had in my life. This is the beginning of the next step in my recovery – helping others. I hope to be able to offer people a safe place to call home while they learn to live their lives in sobriety. There’s a bit of magic that takes place in every sober home, and it’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever been witness to. I can’t wait to see it happen in this house.
