    Roommates Suck

    Let me start off by saying; I am only home and AWAKE for 3 hours a day excluding Weekends when it may be longer than that or shorter depending on my plans. The last 3 weeks I was only home on weekends for Friday night and Sunday night. My roommate cooks and lives throughout the...

    My Roommate/husband

    I just had a talk with my husband.  Told him I wanted to see other people.  Yet we can't afford to live separately yet.  So, on we go on as uncomfortable roommates.  Like we have been for the last couple of months.  I hate it.

    House, Rv, Apartment, Town House, Trailer, Condo

    Whatever you live in, you should hold your head up high; not a lot of people can say, they have a roof over their heads. I know I wanted a house badly and now I do have a house but a nice trailer park  or a quiet townhouse would do me just fine. I have seen some really bad...
