My Neighbors? Suck (well, not all of them)

I live in a nice, quiet neighborhood made up of some nice families and some nicer senior citizens in a little suburban town. Everyone is really nice and waves at each other as we pass by. Do I know anyone by name? Not so much. But really, I've only been here for a year, cut me some slack. We have the "5:30 dog people" who I have met while walking my dog at 5 freaking 30 in the morning. Then there's the lady next door who feeds all the neighborhood stray cats, and is pretty much always yelling for her dog named (what else?) Fifi. There are a couple of families with some school aged children, but we mostly all keep to ourselves.......................



And then there are the neighbors across the street. Call me crazy, but if your motorcycle sets off car alarms as you drive past? it's too loud. Trying to set a record? I'll put the Guinnesses on speed dial if that's what it takes to get you to QUIT RIDING UP AND DOWN THE STREET AT ALL HOURS OF THE DAY/NIGHT. There are ALWAYS at least 5 cars in the street for that house and ALWAYS someone yelling at the top of their lungs after 10 pm outside. I have to say, I'm not a light sleeper. I usually get most of my best sleep during a crazy loud thunderstorm, but last night (MONDAY NIGHT! Don't you have JOBS people??????) I was woken up at MIDNIGHT by some obnoxious base and stupid loud music. Of course these lovely people had to yell to each other over the music because they couldn't hear each other. UGH. Their impeccable manners are being passed down to the next generation, too. Not too long ago, the Hubs and I were driving down the street and waved and the adorable little girl that they have who was playing by herself at the edge of the drive way. I looked at her and smiled. She looked at me and stuck out her tongue. lovely.



Do you have any neighbors that you just can't STAND?! What is the worst/craziest experience you've had with your neighbors (past or present)? Leave me some love (and validation) in my comments section!

On a fertility related note, there is some light at the end of the tunnel for the longest cycle ever (I'm on cd95 now). I started taking Provera last night. I never thought I'd say this, but I'm really looking forward to a visit from my Dear Aunt Flo.

Loud, obnoxious neighbors are the worst. So sorry to hear about yours. It's definitely not you; it's them!

Sorry to hear about your neighbours! I had a neighbour who painted his nails black and he looked like Moby. I never dared look in his direction!

Ohhh, sweetie, CD95! We're peas in this stupid IF pod. :) In only 15 days you can tie me for my personal best, 110 days! It's CD17 for me, but we're just settling in for a nice long cycle I'm sure.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, I'm so glad you did! Our neighbors are all pretty old (seriously the neighbor on the one side of us will be 97 at the end of the month!) and none are too annoying. Well not loud at least, but the one across the street feels the need to use his leaf blower every day. He has the most impeccable driveway you've ever seen. It's dumb.

I think you should definitely ask for met at your next appointment. It's been fantastic for me so far. I've even managed to drop a few pounds with it. It makes me feel a lot more "balanced" if that makes sense - something that PCOS takes away from me and makes me all hormonally wacky sometimes.

Anyway, best of luck with this cycle ending. I'll keep reading!

CD95?? Wow...I guess in that case, I'm happy for you AF is on its way...

Thanks for dropping by my blog. :)

I unfortunately hardly know my neighbors. We live in a high-rise, and they all remain really aloof. Which is too bad, b/c I always wanted to have a nice relationship with my neighbors.
