So. I moved out of the Nut Hut. It’s just amazing how a person can move heaven and earth to scrape up money for deposits to move into one’s own place if properly motivated. Let’s just say, I was properly motivated to leave Janet’s House of Insanity behind. I will never rent a room in someone else’s home ever again. I left, and I was also motivated to take all the roommates with me. We had a “No man left behind attitude while there”, and I’m happy to announce that we are all happily residing in The Blue House. We’re squeezed in on top of each other, and our new landlord ducked out on us when we found out that the pipes had burst and we need a plumber before we can get our water turned on. Literally, I can’t get the woman to return a single phone call. We are on day 3 without water, and we are STILL happier living here. An absent slumlord outranks an antagonistic landlord that lives in the room downstairs any day.
There’s really no reason to go into the specifics of all that happened while renting a room from Janet. After all is said and done, it boils down to an emotionally broken woman who can’t find joy, peace, or contentment in her life, and won’t tolerate anyone else around her being happy either. Despite the many reasons I have that justifiably would allow me to be truly angry with this person, I choose to feel only sadness for her. I am able to walk away from this person and her unhappiness but she’s stuck in this chaotic, depressing life she leads. You can’t run away from yourself.
I’m keeping this entry short, mainly because it’s time for me to drive up to the convenience store to use the restroom and brush my teeth. We’re quickly becoming the stinky people in The Blue House, but we’ll all still have our teeth, and we haven’t resorted to peeing in the yard….yet. I have some suspicions about Tony and DJ….
There’s a certain amount of envy going around when we watch Ella the Dog relieve herself with unashamed abandon in our back yard. There’s a spring in her step that wasn’t there before.
She’s mocking us. I can tell.
More from me soon…. Take care of yourselves!!!
