Was Mom, not roommate

I am a bit older and a little stuck in my ways, but I wasn’t thinking that I would be playing parent to the Princess. The Princess is sweet, but very young.
After she moved in we probably should have sat down and set some ground rules, but I haven’t had to do that before. There were several discussions that cleaning had to be done on a weekly basis. She understood that to mean that I would do all the cleaning. She did do her dishes and take out the trash unnagged but nothing else. But she was going to step up and we didn’t need a cleaning schedule. Yeah, right.

Also she got her first car while we shared a place. She was amazed that she was have to get oil changes. We live in a cold climate. We get snow. She was surprised that she had to get snow scrapper for the car.
She believed that magic faeries replaced the empty paper towel rolls in the kitchen and was shocked that the kitty litter stayed under control by my actually cleaning and scooping the litter.
Our lease is up and she is due to move out at the end of the month. I finally created a cleaning scheduled, which isn’t followed, but I felt better that she saw it. On the schedule, has her move out day as the last day of the month. After all, that is when the lease ends and a new roommate has been found and wants to move in the first of the next month. The Princess now tells me that she can’t move out at the end of the month, but will go on the first of next month. Poor planning on your part Princess does not mean the rest of the world needs to adjust its schedule to accommodate you.
I will not miss her.
