Roommate's Toilet Paper Disposal Questionable

Okay, I had to have a conversation with my roommate. She wanted to split the cost of toilet paper.  Normally this would be fine, I suppose,  except for one problem - In my opinion, my roomie uses a disproportionate amount of toilet paper.

At first, I thought she used it for makeup, cleaning her face, etc.  So when she brought up the subject again, I had to say something.

I explained that first of all, I hate spending money on toilet paper, and thus use as little as possible. Then I said I'd noticed the waste basket fills up quickly, and blaaahh blaaahh blaaahh....

Come to find out, it's worse that I'd imagined. My roommate goes to the bathroom, wipes, and throws the used TP in the trash! OMG, GROSS!!!

Oh, and did I mention she also puts her dog's used puppy pads in there too?

Needless to say, I'll never touch that trash can. Ever. Ever.

Back To Blogging

Well my friends, I'm trying to get back to blogging.  It's difficult without a computer.  I'm using Blogger for Android, on my teeny, tiny phone screen.  Formatting is difficult, and my eyes become crossed much easier than if I were working on a computer. (Getting old is fun, isn't it?)

But, truth be told, I must write.  My transition upon returning to San Diego was - well, still us - in progress.After a few short-term jobs, I found one that I like, and may turn out to be really great for me.

During the search for the job, I had to find a place for me and Coco to live.  I ended up taking a place that was really out of my price range, so the last two months have been stress-filled.  (More about My Quirky Roommate in a future post.)

But last week, I turned a corner. I was enjoying the new job, and I found a new place - with more amenities, since it's a house - at $200 less rent per month!  Coco will have another Chihuahua to hang out with, and my new roomies are super cool.

But wait, cuz it gets better. When I mentioned my plan to pick up a portable garment rack to help with the lack of closet space, my roomie offered up a wardrobe that is sitting in the garage, unused.  And a generous friend is giving me a spare television, which happened to be fairly new, and very nice. 

Crazy, no? No. I believe that the turning point was getting the job. Once that happened, I kind of breathed a sigh of relief, and I suddenly remembered that I deserve good things, and have good people all around me who sincerely want to see me get back on track.

To all of those people, and you know who you are, I give my thanks every day.
