|What a lovely way to start the day|
February 3, 2018
Living as roommates with E is proving to be a bit....challenging.
Not because I want to be with her in a romantic relationship or anything...because now that a couple months has passed, I know that our relationship had reached it's natural end...but because she's got this odd way of making me feel like I'm imposing in my own house.
This morning as she was moving around the house, I asked her (through my bedroom door, because I was still in bed) what her plans for today were....she got all defensive and asked why I needed to know? Why am I trying to keep tabs on her? She went on for a good 10 minutes.
I told her that I was just trying to sort out where in the house I was going to be today....upstairs in my room if she was going to be hanging out at home, or downstairs if she wasn't...but that I'd make a point to not ask her anything anymore. That I woudln't worry about being considerate anymore.
She stormed out.
She left me an apology note by the coffeepot..
"Lisa, I am sorry. I know you are trying to be considerate. I got defensive because I thought you were keeping tabs on me. I should know better. I want to be civil and kind. Ellen.'
Somehow a hastily scribbled apology on the back of a Dominos Pizza napkin doesn't really scream, "I'm sorry I'm a shitstain".....
We'll see how she is when she gets home.
Love until later,
