Got a break today.

The roommate (a.k.a. “Himself”) had to go in to work today for a day of overtime, and left at 5:30 in the morning, which meant that he’s not home all day cleaning and putting his house in order, which meant that I didn’t have to be out of the house by 8:00 sharp.

Not that it did me any real good. When I heard him leave, I neglected to shut off the alarm clock on my phone so it went off at 7:25 anyway. I shut it off then and intended to go back to sleep, but no more sleep was forthcoming. After lying around awake until 9:00, I decided to just get up.

Oh, well. At least I didn’t have to rush to get out of here. I could take my time and, best of all, I could take a shower! I really didn’t want to skip that two days in a row as we’re currently having a heat wave here, and humidity makes me, er, funky.

On another note, his birthday was last Monday, and I still owe him a dinner out. But I haven’t yet had the nerve to ask him when or where he wants to go. He’s always already asleep by the time I get home in the evening or else is staring at his phone and doesn’t appear to be in the mood for talking. He’s so moody and mercurial, I have to deal with him carefully. You never know what might set him off.

Maybe I’ll just text him or send him a PM on Facebook.

  1. Similar but different than what I have going on here. My roomie sleeps all different hours. Right now I have the day off and could do some cooking and clean but she is sleeping as usual on the couch in the living room with her dogs. She rarely leaves the house. The living room/dining room is piled high with her junk. We are out in the country so pretty much I’m stuck in my room with my books. Cannot wait to have a place of my own and no-one to be beholden to or have to walk on eggshells around. I have to be nice for awhile since I do use her car to get to work until mine is fixed in a couple more weeks. Driving me nuts for different reasons.
