Things continue to go somewhat wrong in a variety of ways, all of which are basically predictable, and none of which really matter in the long haul. (But, man, some of this stuff gets my goat…)
Rather than to vent, though, I’ll point out that it would take a lot more drama than this to outweigh the enormous benefits of having a full cast of adults (plus a few extras) riding herd over the Agents Of Chaos who would otherwise utterly destroy my mostly-comfortable and somewhat orderly life.
Plus, my housemates are certifiably cool in a variety of ways that matter to me.
Also, Mina seems to be genuinely enjoying many of the aspects of living with other people of approximately her height (and intellectual acumen, and volume level, and with her bizarre toddler-y interests).
So: if I have been grumpy at you lately for something you know isn’t a big deal: I concede that you are right.
(Nonetheless, I will be terribly grateful if you would please quit doing that.)
(Also, whatever I have been doing that annoys you: by all means share, but just one at a time, if you please.)
