Well, my neighborhood is pretty much built now. My street has been done for about a year so I expect a little bit of peace and quiet!
The house two doors down is actually owned by another lady and she rents it out. That's OK with me. My problem is, she must rent it month by month to people who just need it for a little while. In the past 2 years since her house has been built, there have been no less than 4 families that lived there. I have no problem with that either because MOST families are good neighbors.
Not this new one! I'm pretty sure they may even be vampires. LOL! They started moving in at least 3 weeks ago...at midnight. That's right, MIDNIGHT. I woke up to people talking REALLY loudly with slight screaming and high pitched laughing.
I can deal with one night of that. A few nights later, the SAME thing happened. I'm starting to get a bit annoyed now. I'm pregnant, so I wake up multiple times a night to go tinkle. I need quiet the rest of the night so I can actually sleep!
I don't mind them moving in at midnight with their KIDS running around, as long as they're quiet. By the way, do these kids go to school? Why are they up at 1:00 in the morning?
Since then, I have not ONCE seen them during the day. I have only heard them come home really loudly somewhere around 11:00-12:00 at night. Until yesterday. Hubby came inside from working on his truck and told me that their kids were running around in the road and he hadn't seen the parents at all. It isn't THAT big of a deal because we live at the end of the very back road in a small neighborhood. But still, it could be dangerous.
THEN, last night I go to bed at about 10:00 and I was exhausted. At 10:45, I wake up to kids yelling and running around. Seriously? Not this again! Sure enough, there are kids running around in the road and in their yard. At about 11:30, they're still really loud. Only this time, they're INSIDE hanging out one of the windows(or so hubby says, I was in bed with a pillow over my head trying to go back to sleep).
I have NO clue how many kids they have or how old they are. I have seen no less than 8 kids ranging in age from 5ish-17ish. I don't even know if parents live there! I've never seen them! Their house is actually one of the smallest houses in our neighborhood so I know why the kids would want to come outside, but why can't they do it during the day and SLEEP at night?
Anyway, I was finally able to go to sleep around 11:30 or so. BUT at 4:00, I woke up to loud music and a car starting. One of the cars was leaving the driveway.
It's 7:45 now. The house is quiet and dark. I'm thinking about going outside and turning the radio up REALLY loudly in my car!
