Hello. It’s Belinda.
TO THE TECH TEAM: PLEASE BLOCK MY ROOMMATE FROM THIS BLOG
Well I guess my shopping days are over. Which is a real shame.
Because ever since I found out about "auto-ship" I've been having the time of my life buying goodies on the company website. My stash has everything.
I even gave my boyfriend's companion a pile of "emergency treats." Mostly healthy snackers. That tells you how much I bought with the gift card I found.
Best of all I set up my orders so I would get one or two a week. So I never have to worry about running out.
Those were the good old days, if you know what I mean.
Tuesday I received my last delivery. I was taking a half-nap under the dining room table when I heard the key in the lock.
My roommate walked in the front door with a box of alfalfa.
When she saw me she stared up at the ceiling for no reason. Then she looked at me.
"Belinda you now have nine boxes of hay. Enough is enough."
She told me she was going to call customer service and cancel all of my orders.
It was nice while it lasted.
I might look like I'm sulking in the photo but I'm not. I'm planning my menu for the week. Something different every day.
Which is the whole reason I enjoy shopping for myself. "Variety."
I'm a forager. That's how I found the gift card in the first place. I was sniffing along the floor for snacks when "bingo."
I'm supposed to graze throughout the day. It's good for my digestion.
There's nothing wrong with that.
That's why I bought the healthy snacker sampler, all three cuttings of timothy hay, a case of Belinda's Blend, six bags of organic apple sticks, two or three orders of the herbal blend sampler, the "jumbo" box of pellets and I don't even know what else.
I thought my roommate would be happy. I was only trying to make things easier for her. So she wouldn't have to worry about the shopping.
Yesterday she was rearranging hay boxes on the shelves when she told me I shouldn't "hoard" food and chew toys.
I wanted to ask if storing 20 packages of pee pads in a certain closet under the steps would be considered "hoarding."
But I worked on my weekend menus instead.
