We live in a townhouse and I always get the question, do you hear your neighbors and I could honestly say no. In fact, I love, love, love our neighbors. On the North is a middle-aged woman who has 2 cats and keeps to her self. And the West a snobby bitch who in the 3+ years we have lived here, I’ve seen her maybe 5 times. In my mind she is so incredibly wealthy that she keeps that townhouse when she visits family here in Iowa. Nick and I constantly made up stories up about her and then by accident found out her name “NB” because our ever so competent postman deliver her mail to us. It was always an occasion when NB was home.
This last summer three people in our area, including NB put For Sale signs up. This crushed me. I loved NB, I loved that she was never home, I loved that when she was it was an occasion, I loved she was never home…now what was going to happen. Well, after a few months, couple Saturdays ago we saw her move the sign in the garage and moved the very little she had out of the townhouse. Last Friday our new neighbors moved in.
Ok, the street is narrow and it is really hard with a truck to move into our community, so I give slack for a couple days. However, not only did they block their driveway, the street, my driveway and the mailbox, they had cars park everyway and anywhere…horizontal in spots. Ok, fine, annoying, but whatever. It was really the midnight hanging up pictures on Saturday that started to work my nerves or the Sunday of constantly banging around, or Monday morning at 5:30am listening to them get ready and then finally after working coming home to see again I cannot park in my spot because they are painting their garage and their shit is in my driveway. I promptly got on IowaRealty.com searching for anything we can afford. Fuck, yes FUCK, I am not living in an apartment and some consideration would be nice.
Moving on…Last Saturday also brought me a headache when I opened my email to 83 spam messages from ebay, well, I thought they were spam until I started reading them. Once I got to the email that said my account has been suspended due to a third party unauthorized access, panic struck. And it was all true. It appears Last Friday night someone got into my account bought around 15 items and posted around 40 purses for bidding. They changed the banking information to some Vermont bank. So that was seriously annoying.
Other than those annoyances this weekend it was a pretty fab weekend. Pizza and Poker on Friday. Pedicures and Rico’s Party on Saturday. Being Lazy on Sunday.
