Living In An Apartment

Hello everyone,

I have settled in to my new apartment here in my home town of Roanoke, VA. I finally have the place the way I want it. There have been some issues, however with the couple living above me. He works nights and she has OCD. She vacuums everyday sometimes twice a day. She washes clothes everyday, sometimes multiple times during the day. What in the hell could she possibly be washing?

Getting Through The First Holiday, Valentine's Day Without My Husband

Good Morning,

I made it through the first Valentine's Day without my husband. The day before Valentine's Day was very hard. I cried most of the day.
