So a lot has happened in my life since my last post, which is why it’s been about a month. Probably the best thing that happened is hubby and I are finally moving into a house and out of this apartment. We got a great house about 5 minutes away from where we currently live. It has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a full basement, plus the neighborhood seems nice and very quiet. I’ve been spending time there in the past couple weeks doing improvements and cleaning. It’s a nice house, but whoever lived there before obviously didn’t bother to clean anything ever, not even when they moved out. Oh, and the front porch smelled like they kept a huge dog in there. We had to tear up the carpet and get new installed just to get the stench out. Not that I’m complaining because I’m enjoying the improvements and it will all be worth it once we get moved in about 3 weeks. Plus as a bonus I get to get away from my current crazy ass neighbors. Who, by the way, are still up to their obnoxious antics. When we came home the other night they had a cellphone and an extension cord plugged into our outside outlets. The extension cord was going into their door in the kitchen. Apparently they were stealing our power because theirs got turned off. I mean, I feel for you that you can’t keep your power turned on for whatever reason but at least have the common courtesy to ask if you can use my outlets. I was so pissed I knocked on their door but no one answered, so I unplugged both things and took the cellphone into my apartment. I figured if they wanted it back they’d have to come and get it and explain why it was plugged into my outlets. Unfortunately, hubby took it back outside and sat it on their doorstep because he is a lot nicer than I am. I did call the landlord though, just to make sure they know what sort of people they have living in this building, and after talking with them he’s the one who told me they had no power. Sorry still doesn’t give you the right to steal! Man I’m glad we are moving, I don’t know how much more of these people I can take before I go over there screaming and yelling and get put into a straight jacket because I’m having a nervous breakdown. Anyway enough about them because just talking about them puts me in a nasty mood.
On another note, my parents have been helping me with the improvements at the new house, because hubby works all day, and because my mom thinks (or thought still not sure though) I’m pregnant, which I’m not! At first, I thought she was crazy because she kept saying things like I shouldn’t do all the heavy lifting, and then she was talking about paint fumes so I got suspicious. I asked my dad and he said she got that idea because when she asked why we got such a big house, I said because we need the space! Ha ha, that is funny to me because I really just meant we need the space! My dad said he tried to tell her it wasn’t true but I don’t think he succeeded. Apparently she thinks we’re waiting for Christmas to tell them! Boy is she going to be disappointed when that doesn’t happen. I tried to tell her this weekend that I’m not, and she said okay but I’m not sure she was convinced and I don’t know how else to spell it out for her. I knew she wanted grandchildren, but not that bad lol! Funny how after you get married people always want to know when you’re going to have babies. Like just because you’re married you should have kids. When we first got married I wasn’t ready for babies, and then after about 4 years we decide we were ready. Now it’s been 6 so I’m not sure if we can even conceive, don’t know though maybe hubby and I will start working more on that this coming year .
I need to get off the computer, I have so much crap to pack up, it’s not even funny. I didn’t realize I had accumulated so much junk. I hate moving when it comes to packing and unpacking, it’s the worst. I think I would rather unpack than pack though. Probably because I like decorating. So today I’ll ask you, have you ever moved or helped someone move? Do you like moving, packing, and unpacking? What’s the worst part for you? That’s all for now big love to you

Well, I realize that October is nearly half over, but I finally got my Pink for October layout up to promote breast cancer awareness. It took forever because it was on my work computer which mysteriously crashed about two weeks ago. So instead of making and coding it all over again I made the decision to wait until my tech guy (thanks Jimmy) could recover it for me. He finally got the computer fixed this morning so I’m grateful for that. Anyways, I know the theme looks a little wonky in IE, I am working on it. If you’re using IE you can still read the posts and tutorials and what not, it’s just lacking some of the aesthetic beauty it has in other browsers. Personally I hate and don’t use or recommend IE because of it’s none conformist attitude haha, I laugh but I’m serious.
In other news, if you read my last post you know I’ve been having trouble with my neighbors, their obnoxious ways, and loud music. Well I ended up having to call my landlord again, but since then they have kept the music at a manageable level so at least that’s something. They admitted the note was from them after I asked and told them that poo couldn’t possibly have been from my tiny miniature dachshund. Since then we’ve sort of agreed to disagree and we don’t really speak to each other, which is just fine with me because I still think they’re obxnoxious people in general. Hubby and I have been looking for a house the last few weeks because after this incident we are both pretty much fed up with apartment living anyway. We’ve lived here for 6 years and it’s definitely time for an change. We’ve seen some okay places but nothing that really speaks to me yet. Hopefully we will find something nice with a good price soon enough.
Well Halloween is coming up and my sister asked me today what I think she should be. I have absolutely no idea, it’s hard enough for me to pick a costume for myself, let alone for her. So I decided to ask around. So my question today is what are you going to be for Halloween? If you don’t plan on dressing up, what’s a good costume for women in their early 20′s? Okay, well it’s Friday night and I’ve got comments to return, plus I’d really like to do something tonight so I think I’ll go find something to get into! Big Love

Okay, this post is most definitely going to be ranty (<--is that a word), because I feel the need to do a little bitching today. So, normally I'm not the type of person who dislikes other people, or even says nasty things about other people, but I have these obnoxious neighbors who I really cannot stand. First off, there are two obnoxious parents and they have two obnoxious children, who are constantly looking through my windows and doors. I mean, I get it, little children do things like that, but when you're standing outside with them is it asking too much to pull them away from the door? Or I don't know tell them how rude it is to just stare into someone's home. Not to mention they leave toys all over the parking lot and when they're outside and clearly see us coming in the car the parents don't even bother to move them out of way. These kids are maybe 3 and 5 and they never watch them. The dad is always on the phone completely ignoring them, but at least he's outside with them. The mom just let's them do whatever they please, and I hear her begging them to do things and when they tell her no she just gives up asking. I've caught the kids sticking their toys into my air conditioning unit, and trying to get into my car. Having just had 8 kids to take care of for the last five months, I understand that kids don't always listen or obey, and it's hard to keep an eye on them all the time, but this is ridiculous. They have no rules, it seems as if they do whatever they want. But that's not what really bothers me, what really bothers me or what used to before today, is that they bump music extremely loud at all hours of the day. Sometimes it's so loud it shakes my walls, and a couple of weeks ago it was that loud at 4am. So loud in fact that I could even tell exactly what song it was. This is obnoxious behavior for anyway, but for people with children it’s even worse. Shouldn’t your children be asleep at 4 am? And if it’s that loud in my apartment imagine what it sounds like in there. That can’t be good for a child’s hearing. Besides it’s just good apartment etiquette to try not to be obnoxiously loud. So finally hubby and I got fed up and called the landlord. Of course, he said he’d talk to them and for the past few days it has been downgraded to a light bass bump, which is an improvement. Okay, before I tell you what happened today, let me just say that there are three apartments in my building and they are townhouse style set all in a row. They live on the outside apartment and I live in middle, so if they were told about a complaint, they know it had to be us because they aren’t connected to anyone else. Anyway, this morning my dog needed to go out, so I open the door and I get a nasty surprise on my doorstep, a huge steamy pile of dog poo with a note that basically says pick up your dog‘s crap or else. I took a picture of it, not the poo just the note. So what infuriated me about this was not the note, or even the act of putting the crap on my door step. What got me was that it wasn’t even my dog‘s poo. This poo was about the size of soda can, three gigantic pieces. I have a miniature dachshund, she barely weighs 12 pounds. If that’s what is coming out of her tiny body I’ve got bigger problems to deal with than picking up the poo (which I always do clean up!) I mean this stuff looked like it came from a great dane or something. I’m all for neighborly respect, and if you have a legitimate complaint against me I will work to change it, but don’t just make up reasons to harass me because I complained about your loud music. I went to the landlord instead of confronting them specifically because I didn’t want to get into a fight and now they are purposely provoking the situation. I don’t want to make things worse, because I do have to live next door to these people but they are really pushing their luck here. Of course it could have been the neighbors on the other side of me who left the the steamy pile, if it was well they’ll just have to get over it because that wasn’t my dog‘s poo. Considering I just complained about these other people though, I’m going to assume it was them. In any event I wanted to get this off my chest and get some feedback from others. Was I wrong to complain about the music? And is it okay to put dog poo on someones door step, especially when you can clearly tell that my dog didn’t create that large pile of manure? What would you do in this situation? For now I’m taking the high road, I’m not going to say anything to them about the note, because I’m more mature than that, but if they keep it up I will be forced to say something. I did throw the poo in the yard to make sure they can see that I didn’t bother to dispose of it. Anyway enough about that because I’m beginning to get irritated all over again. Big love people
