It has been a while since I've posted, so this is kind of a mass update. I'll use cuts to make it look nice and small, though.

That's pretty much what's going on with me. No change in the home situation, and I don't expect any. I am, of course, open to talking about a settlement but I don't expect my ex will be willing to talk, given that she hasn't been willing to all the time since we broke up (9 years ago next month) and even during the past 6 months when I've been living here. But that's okay for me, at least for now. I've been able to make a good 65-70% of the apartment livable, even really nice. It's more room than I had in my rental, a lot cheaper, and my ex mostly stays away and when she is here holes up in the 30-35% of the place that is Hoarding Central. So it's fine for now.
