Countdown to 20 years of marriage…day 4 reflecting on year 4

1997…

We were renting from my parents. It was a simple 2 bedroom basement apartment on the street I grew up on. The rent was cheap and the neighborhood was improving, it was a good deal. However, when you are in a dysfunctional family, even after you start your own family, you tend to keep your role, it was even harder to separate myself when we were living in the same building. My mother continued to make decisions I could not agree with and I could not keep my mouth shut, and it was affecting my new family. It was time to go!

We found an apartment that was about 4 miles away but the rent was double! I had my doubts, I was a stay at home mom with a 4 yr old and an 11 month old but Shaggy said we could do it. and we did! It was one of those life changing moments that forever changed my relationship with my family. The apartment was bigger and the neighborhood was nice. Shaggy claims that it was one of the best decisions we ever made for our family, I agree with him.
