The Departed...My Life Since LC Moved On
By: Tami aka: Tabby, Tabitha, Tam, Tamela, T-Bec, TJ etc.
LC has graciously requested that I write another guest post for the blog. When I asked her what she thought I should write about, she suggested I write about my life without her in the house, naturally. So, how is my life different since LC moved on? Let me give you the pros and cons.
-Things are a little bit tidier. I love LC, but I'm a neat freak and this was sometimes difficult for me. She knows this and she knows I love her anyway.
-There's no mountain dew in the refrigerator. I don't like mountain dew. I don't want to look at it in the morning.
-I don't ever have to watch Rosanne, The Wonder Years, Airline, or any other cheesy reality/1980 sitcoms.
-I usually get to sleep in my bed alone. She really liked my bed…and me.
-I have to work harder to get dinner plans. LC was always up for some pizza which made her number 1 on my friend list frequently.
-Sometimes I have to get my own mail. LC always had the mail waiting on the table when I got home.
-Before Laura's return from the black hole of Houston, life without LC meant living on the 2nd floor alone. Zero fun. Now that Laura and Noelle are back, this isn't as much of an issue…but it's still much quieter up there.
-My daily life is no longer effectively documented in pictures. LC was great about making sure she had a quality photo of roommate time on the couch or an afternoon Felicity marathon. I felt kind of famous. Like people cared what I was doing on my Friday afternoon off…
-I don't really get to talk to LC. When she lived with me, we talked all the time. Now all my information comes via LB b/c they call each other 4 times a day(at least).
-We can't share clothes, make-up, jewelry and gossip as frequently. Those were some of our favorite things to do together. And we always brushed each other's hair…
Sometimes it still feels like LC lives with us. Key reasons for this are that she still has a key and she was at my house when I fell asleep last night and again when I woke up this morning. I'm ok with it…it's better to slowly phase these things out anyway. I don't really like sudden change. Just kidding LC, you'll never be phased out. You always have a spot in the south bedroom of 2620…even if it is just an air mattress on the floor.
