Until I heard about this, I kind of feel as though my life is in a holding pattern. Not that there's anything unpleasant about my life. In fact, I'm glad that I'm here right now, what with Josie being terribly sick and all..even if I were out of the house, I expect I'd be right where I am in a situation like this. However, I was expecting to be a bit further down the path by this point.
I wonder whether I should reconsider this apartment and look elsewhere. What's very attractive about it is that it will not require a security deposit and should be somewhat inexpensive, while still being in a nice location. It's us, by all accounts, a beautiful apartment (according to Peter it's two floors, with two bedrooms).
Friday night was disturbing. Josie and I went out and I was hit on by a guy who said some things to us that hit home. He has a brother who was married and has children, and his brother came out, and the wife is still his best friend and the kids are very accepting (in fact, the brother was dancing at the club that night and the wife and kids were there to see him). This was comforting, but the guy was getting very physical with me and I think that this bothered Josie a great deal.
I really regret even striking up a conversation with him, quite frankly. The last thing that I want to do is to hurt her.
