There is a problem with the new lady tenant.
She has no social life. Beisdes the people in the house.
She is also obviously wanting to find a relationship with someone.
Now, I don't mind the talking until it starts getting repetitious.
But today, when I got home from work, I just wanted to sit out back, alone, with the dogs, and just think in quietness.
Okay, not total silence, the dogs were going crazy and that's fine, I'm a fan. Well, their craziness drew her from the from porch to the back, where she began attmepting to invoke her vast amounts of knowledge about dogs to me about the behavior they were exhitibiting. I was trying to be nice so I just nodded my head and agreed with her.
Nothing she said was news to me. But that wasn't really the bad part, the bad part is when she started saying the same things, over and over and over - and over - and over - 15, 20 times. I'm just internally getting extremely irritated with this. Make your point, don't repeat it 15 times, I don't care how important you think it is. I went out there to get away from people. I don't have the need for being around people all the time. This is a pattern that has been a part of me since I was a little boy. I could play with other kids but I was just as happy playing by myself. Something of that carried over into adulthood. I like being around people but I don't have to be aorund them to enjoy life.
I'm afraid I am going to have to confront her on all of this stuff and I guess I would rather do that before it becomes explosive inside of me. I never did get the alone time back there. I was out there for 45 minutes and she talked non-stop. No, seriously, non-stop. Her male friend lives here as well, but he's a total loner. He sits in his bedroom all day and night, rarely ever coming out. He talks on the phone with whoever and he just ordered the Direct TV package that gives you every single channel in their lineup incluidng NFL package.
He talks to her but obviously this isn't fulfilling her needs. I'm not sorry to say that I dont feel inclined to be that person. She either needs to find a boyfriend - and that person won't be me - or get her own dog that she can have in the room all day long.
There are always some sort of conflicts with having tenants in a house, which is why I made myself as low-maintenance as possible when my now-friends who own this house were living here and we got along very nicely. We reeally did. A few quirks here and there but nothing major. So what do I do about this? I don't know. If you don't respond to her? Ie, sort of the cold shoulder but not exactly that, what does she do? Just talks and talks and talks - and talks - and taaaaaaaaaaaaaaalks. You can't get a word in edgewide unless you speak over the top of her.
Whatever. I'll figure this out somehow. I could disappear into my room but I don't have TV in there and can't watch the news and movies. I could get a receiver in there but I actually like sitting out in this living room. She mostly leaves me alone in here, at least. No, I don't invite her to sit down and watch TV or talk. I don't want to bad mouth her or anything, this is really my problem that I need to learn a way to deal with.
Well anyway, i was talking with the lady homeowner - Taylor - yesterday via texting - she is into texting and I can deal with that. We were discussing the projects I was doing and all kinds of things, really. She was lamenting having to have to move there. She then tld me that they had been talking about me the previous night. Well, we decided that when we return, we really want you to stay with us. The kids can stay in a single room together and that's too bad for them! I thought it cool that there are people around that actually want my presence around.
I will certainly consider it. I think if I were to stay, whichever room I end up in will have to have a big time upgrade. In fact, I'm going to have to do something with the lady tenant's bathroom. I was going to do that before but once I moved out of there it just fell out of my mind as my head got filled up with the pressing projects outside. I'm not a fan of living in a house that is an eyesore tothe rest of the neighborhood. The back yard can be done at whatever pace and be put low on the priority list, but the front yard should be looking good.
I'm tired. I am not feeling too great, etiher. Some kind of head cold going around and I started feeling a scratchy throat and general not feeling good stuff. I took some Vitamin D3 and zinc. About to take at least 3,000 milligrams of Vitamin C. It hasn't hit me full fledged yet, I dont' even know if it's a cold, it just feels like one. Anway, going to bed early tonight. Looks like I have a run down south tomorrow, which if so, I can handle. If I have to hang out at the yard and I feel like I am now? I'll probably go home.
The only other thing I will say in this entry is that I found my coffee can. I have no idea how I could have put it in the pantry/laundry room. I was moving from one room to another and apparently I thought it a good place to put it out of the way while moving. I had forgotten about it until I decided I wanted to put my gold chains on again....and couldn't find it anywhere. Happy to find it is all I can say considering cahs, rings and gold chians.
