For anyone who's noticed my semi-incommunicado status and general lack of posts lately, I'm finally going to reveal a few of the many causes.
To start, my boyfriend and I broke up. Even though it was a very civil break-up based on a mutual decision by the two of us, it's been a sad and stressful time over these past few months, and it's made it hard for me to get motivated to write posts.
Adding to the stress was the fact that I had to find a new apartment because my b.f. and I lived together. This meant lots of time spent going from apartment to apartment and having plenty of interviews with potential new roommates.
Then I actually had to spend many, many hours packing up all of my stuff and move to my new place. Obviously, tons of work.
Despite all the craziness, though, I think things are finally starting to level out for me. My new apartment, with its hardwood floors, high ceilings, and quirky kitchen tile, is absolutely gorgeous, and my new roommates are very nice and completely charming.
Now I just have to tell them about my plastic-freeness (I didn't know them before moving into my new place so they don't know).
Right now, my plan is to wait a week and then tell them. That way, once they hear the news they will already understand that it won't effect their lives within the apartment very much.
The one way it might effect them: dishsoap. I don't know what we'll do yet. Should we use Dr. Bronner's? Should I ask them to use a homemade solution? I'll have to think about that tomorrow.
