Just so y'all know, sometimes Mike does do things that make me very happy. Last night was especially good. He was sweet, thoughtful, helpful, playful, fun to be around, danced with me lots, and behaved himself beautifully around everyone else; no jealousy, no fights, no anger. Nights like last night are why I keep dating him, even through the bad.

I keep meaning to post more, but keep getting distracted. Updates on the move, updates on my life, whatnot.

Things are not going especially well with Mike. He's so often angry. I feel like I spend so much of my energy just trying to placate him, to keep him from getting angry or to try and soothe things once he gives in to it. It makes me tired and sad.

No job yet.

This place is starting to feel like home. I love having Mary and Laurie around, but man, it feels crowded sometimes. Especially from 6:00 am until about noon, when they're still sleeping and I want to be doing stuff around the apartment, unpacking, moving in, cleaning, but feel bad waking them up.
