Is it just me?

This morning roomie called me too noisy because the headphone plug on my TV came loose. She said it was "blasting" her. This is the same person who has granted me roughly twelve hours of sleep in the last five nights because "I have important th... Read more

Yesterday was my Margaret's 36th birthday. I miss my feisty little redhead, even after all these years. I have had about eight hours of sleep in the last three nights. Roomie not only doesn't sleep (seemingly ever), but she spends all night... Read more

I got a new roommate yesterday. She says she's allergic to tap water, that the air here is toxic, she demanded "organic, cold-pressed coconut oil," and right now she's out on the patio lying on a mat (they DO have chairs). She's demanding to lea... Read more

...but my roommate decided she wanted a window bed so she moved to another room. A few minutes later the woman who occupied the other bed in that room came over and asked if she could move in here, because she couldn't deal with my ex-roomie's c... Read more

I am feeling terrible. I have a bad headache and the sinus infection just isn't going away. But it's more than that. I went to Facebook this morning as always. A designer I'd contacted about a problem I had with her sock pattern wasn't plea... Read more

I got a new roommate today. So far she's willing to use headphones to watch TV and she's okay with closing the door at night, so we might be all right. Monday night I had another nightmare about my old job. I left almost three years ago but... Read more

The man across the hall has his TV way too loud (again). The woman next door to me shouted at the CNA for going in to check on her earlier this morning. Someone down the hall is screaming. Just another fun-filled day in Paradise... Frank fi... Read more

We're getting light rain today. I'm enjoying it but we seriously need more. Yesterday I had a visitor. Gracie's human brings her around to visit to cheer people up. She got up on the bed and flopped up against my leg. She knows how to make ... Read more

Sunday they moved roomie to another room on the other side of the building. I never said anything, but I'd had about all I could handle of her attitude that she made the rules and I just lived here. So now I have the room to myself (for the mome... Read more

Roomie doesn't close the bathroom door (which is right across from my bed). I need eye bleach. She may go home next week. Please... Last night I lay awake listening to her talk away in her sleep (as usual). So I did the most logical thin... Read more

There may be hope. Roomie told admin she wants a window bed. Admin told her the next one that comes open will be hers. I'm praying for someone to have a quick, complete recovery! (Goodness, window beds seem to be a hot commodity here.) My r... Read more

Another night of listening to roomie argue with people who aren't there. I broke down and ordered a set of noise-cancelling headphones. It's the only way I'm going to get any sleep. My great-niece Angie got her present from me yesterday. It... Read more

I've had practically no sleep for the last two nights. My roommate talks loudly and constantly in her sleep and when she's awake. I'm not convinced she's not hallucinating. At 2:30 this morning she yelled for the CNA (she hates using the call bu... Read more

Sorry I've been gone so long. I've had a miserable sinus infection for the last three weeks. It withstood five days of antibiotics (I don't remember which one) and now they're giving me nasal spray and Allerex. The whole left side of my face has... Read more
