I moved again

I moved again... for the 4th time in the past 16 months about... i hope i stay where i am now! the place i was in wasnt what it seemed. there was mold growing in the walls. and the upstairs neighbors constantly partied and flooded the bathroom upstairs, which leaked onto us downstairs. we split an electric bill, and well they were behind when we moved in, so we never knew what we were suposed to pay, i just got tired of it and moved. i am in a 3 br mobile, and my messy laundry roomate problem is gone, one because we dont have a washer/dryer hookup till next year when they dig a line to the city sewer. and because there is a 2 br apartment on the property, it was used as a office before, its actually a nice place. we have a fenced yard.... with trees all around. lots of yardwork and weeding to do, but it will come along. i can let my daughter play in the yard with the hose on warm days, and not worry about her stepping on a nail or something sharp cause the neighbor kids decided to bring down knives and bury them in the yard.  its alot more peaceful here. there is an air of serenity here. i like it so far, i feel calmer, and im not even done unpacking yet.  this place was owned by natives before im sure, there is a stained glass feather on the window, but there is a circle around the whole property.. and there is lots of calm and positive energy. im glad i moved so far. it was a quick move. we literally decided to move a week ago, packed up everything on saturday, and moved a 5 br house in 1 day. which was hell. i had to deal with my mother, cause we needed her horse trailer and someone to watch baby. she was talking crap to my roomate the whole time, and she wasnt helping much to begin with, but it caused a fight between her and her boyfriend, which left the rest of us with alot of work. sometimes, when i look at her, i am greatful that i am with austin, its a constant reminder of why im with him, and not out looking for someone im really attracted to or something. he is there for me and cares about me. my roomate is a very nice person, but her world seems to revolve around her boyfriend, who is constantly in trouble, always late, and has disrespected her.
and she is always waiting, always accepting apologies. he in general, is a nice guy. but not a nice boyfriend, and he tells her this, we tell her this, and she continues to chase him until he gives. i just remember that cycle. i dont miss it at all. and it would be too easy for me to fall back into that type of relationship, or for me to be the one to be mean, because i have so much anger that can be brought to the surface because of what my ex did to me. so im happy to be with austin.

The move sounds like an excellent disicion even though moving is brutal.

You are doing very well to see that you do not need to be in that type of relationship. And it sounds like a much better environment for you and your daughter.
