It's not for the faint of heart.

Welcome to my slightly silly, often odd, and mostly messy life.

And the crazy keeps on coming...

My neighbor is insane. A crazy boy child in a hairy man's body. Whenever he feels we are being too loud he resorts to pounding on the walls and stomping loudly up and down the hallway. Nuts-0 huh?

He also likes to wash and dry what sounds like landscape pavers after 11 pm at night. The same man that will curse at me and my children for watching TV at 9:3o pm on a Saturday night sees nothing wrong with doing laundry in the wee hours of the morning or singing to the Eagles at the top of his lungs. Now I have nothing against the Eagles... but really... at midnight?

We share a wall, I live in a duplex, there is going to be some cross over noise, I get that. I've never called the landlord and complained when Hillbilly Deluxe and his lady friend with tres' chic mullet start screaming at each other, or when they wash their little midnight load of rocks and gym socks, or when they park in my spot in front of my house. But I'll be damned if I'm going to let his rock-a-billy girlfiend (and I use the term "girl" lightly here...she's about fiftey years old) call my kids, "little f-ing brats" and scream at me.

We had another run in recently. I was taking my holiday decorations to the garage last night, and she's there, doing god knows what and she says, "what are you doing NOW?" in this pissy tone. I just smiled and told her I was looking for the kids drum and trumpets"

Maybe that'll give her something to worry about for a day or two.


  1. Oh I can so relate! I live in a condo and it’s such a pain when you get neighbors who think they can do no wrong and you can do no right!
    P.S. I was reading a comment you left on TDC about your laundry and I wanted to suggest that maybe you could hang a pretty curtain over the opening that you could pull closed when it wasn’t in use and you would be happier with the appearance. Just a thought. :)

  2. What a good idea... I can find a great curtain that'll add some color to an otherwise bland space!
    Thanks for the tip Nikki!
