I know I said that every Monday, I would put up something about Oly that I like and why I live here. I was all set to go out and get pictures of one of my most favorite places in the world. Then it started to rain. This was not our typical rain, this was the rain where going outside and looking up would result in a near death experience. So given weather like that what did I do? I went out and played. I love the rain, I love rain like that.  I came home cold wet and in the mood for a nap. It was a wonderful day. However, my camera does not like getting wet. Not at all. That means this weekend I get to get picture of my most favorite place to put up, that is if the camera will go outside.

Last week I ended up getting an unexpected roommate. Now, the help with the rent will be great as I can play catch up on some bills that need worked on. There are downsides to this roommate thing, so I think I am going to hang on for a few months then tell him he needs to get his own place. We are two very different people. I do not have cable, refuse to have cable that is driving him nuts. He comes in turns the TV on, and it is on until he goes to sleep. I only have the the thing on if I want to watch something, and then I have to make myself turn it on. (Except for Hoarders). Then I like things neat and tidy, his dishes from three days ago are still in the sink, the dishwasher is empty. I am not mommy, if by Friday they are still there I am going to have to start putting them in the trash.

The worst thing about having a roommate is that my Honey Love can no longer come up here and see me. That just makes me cry. When she came up here, my house felt complete. There were times we would do the tourist thing, others we would just stay home (gutter mind here is OK). Now we are going to have to travel to get time alone. I do not mind the travel, OK I hate to fly, but I do not mind the different locations that we go to. What I will miss is having a home base, a place to cook dinner, or pack a lunch.

I keep telling myself that change is good, and it is good. However, if it comes to roommate or Honey Love. Roommate is out on his ass.

Room mates mean a lot of compromise on both sides. A lot.

Hi Debra,
I have had room mates before, just not one like this. I know we will work it out, it is just a big ajustment for me.
