I have been house and dog sitting for around 3 weeks total for a lady who was in the hospital.
She is getting out tomorrow and wants me to stay with her for at least another week to help her out with her dogs etc.
I have a strange feeling she may want me to stay indefinately. That would be a big decision for me, even if it meant free rent. It might mean I couldn’t housesit for others…that would mean less money for me. Frankly…and most would have trouble understanding this but… I need cash more than I need to live in a “house”.
It would mean less time with my boyfriend. I have a new boyfriend who I haven’t talked about here yet. I have been seeing him for 2 months.
It means less independence. I really like doing my own thing.
On the plus side, maybe I would be less lonely, having another person to care about and “come home to”. That might be really good. This lady is super nice. We have a lot in common.
She’s also interesting. She grew up kind of wealthy. She has great taste. She has beautiful art all over her house. I could learn a lot from her. She’s a quality person. Not only because of money…because of the way she was raised.
It’s been different for me, staying at her house. The housekeeper has come by two or three times. I’m not used to that. It feels invasive but it’s (as they say) a high quality problem.
I have a weird life. On one hand, I’m this homeless rebel. On the other hand, I don’t even have to clean up after myself. Bizarro world!
