A crap weekend

I was homesick for the first time since arriving today. It was simply a crap day. I was the object of Paulette’s verbal abuse. Nancy and I haven’t been too helpful recently in the kitchen as far as washing up dishes after dinner (She initially only asked us to clean up after ourselves in the morning, so my assumption was that evening dishes were optional, hence the slacking…that in addition to not really feeling like helping someone out who yells at her tenants. Both of us pretty much quit a couple of weeks ago when she started going off on Nancy over things I’ve previously mentioned.). Anyway, Paulette hasn’t said much about it to date, but she had a big blowout at me this evening around 9pm over it, telling me I was the main culprit (this after I cleaned up the kitchen after her baking when she went out this afternoon) and placing a warmed up tv dinner on the table for me while preparing a roast for herself, making sure to say that she purposely shopped for the nastiest looking convenience food to teach us a lesson. I really lost it, as I had a tiring week at uni. It’s 3:30am and I’m still up. Really needed a wind down this weekend and am just finishing up some work on a project I had planned to do tomorrow because I know I’ll be sleeping in. I do think I’m going to opt out of the meal portion of the lease and get my own, higher cost or not, simply so I don’t have to sit down to dinner with this woman, etc. I miss my cat and the warmth of home today. I’m sick of people who have no regard for the feelings of others. Hopefully I can find another place to live soon.

This has been a very tough week, but today starts fresh with new opportunities. Don’t dwell on the past. Take a deep breath and go forward. You are meeting your particular challenges with strength, maturity, and truth on your side.

Gosh, darn, if this doesn’t sound somewhat like a daily horoscope reading! Am not piling on the #$#%, but mean what I say!

Im beginning to think there’s a reason her boarding rates were lower than average. Maybe she has a reputation. You can cook better food on your own anyway - teach HER a lesson. Is it a lot extra? Maybe you and Nancy can go in together for more economy?

Nancy is moving to another host family this weekend, and I have decided to do my own food, until I can find another place. I won’t be able to do food on £10 a week (the difference in rent for including meals), but it’s worth it not to have peace of mind in other ways.

Working on the “other place” for you - have asked around (no luck yet) and will check the notice boards tonight for you - you need *out* of that place - the Woman’s a Loony!
