So many things are happening in my life. In our family’s life. Thankfully B has landed himself two job offers after being unemployed for approximately one month. The one job pays extraordinarily well but would require him to travel 100% of the time. They say they’d try to keep him home as often as they can. The other one pays good (definitely higher than his last job, whose pay sucks) and it’s local, so he’ll be home every night and for the weekend. This is the job he really wants to have, as it will open the door for his long-term goal of another career. But this one requires security clearance. We’re still waiting for words on that and hopefully he gets it.
My neighbour is one irresponsible dog owner who let her canine creatures out all day and night long, barking away at everything. We’ve lost sleep, the right to peace and quiet of our own home, and I’m on the edge of my sanity. Talking reasonably doesn’t seem to work with people around here. They are just… unique. It seems like people around here lack some serious common sense and logic. You can’t reason with them. They believe in the old ways. “Oh, we’ve been here 20 years.. that one’s been here forever.. what right do you have to write her a letter telling her her dog woke you up at 5:30 AM?”
Yeah. Really. I wanna punch someone in the vagina for that.
I’ve always known that this neighbourhood has some Wysteria Lane-like qualities, filed with busybodies and gossipers and illogical people but it was all good until we’re part of a disagreement. I got tired just thinking of having to deal with these folks for years to come. (Should’ve known that paying an 800 bucks mortgage for a spacious 2100 sq ft. has its catch.)
So other than that, life flows by everyday. My mother and sister will be here in 19 short days and I regret that all this nasty crap taking place is not allowing me to fully anticipate their coming.
I’m fucking tired, that’s all.
