Good Intentions

I now have lots of ideas on things to post, along with pictures. However, the execution is lacking, and so I haven't been posting at all. I guess I'll just ramble for awhile until I get the pictures taken and a proper post crafted.

I have new neighbors in one of the upstairs apartments. A family, with 2 kids. Until now, this place was kid-free, and I'm not so much a kid friendly person. I do ok in small doses when I can hand the kids back. The energy level around here has stepped up, as has the foot traffic in and out to the street. These are not good things for me. I am looking to move, after I give them a few more days to settle in. I may have already lost the neighbor upstairs who was a single man who speaks English. I haven't seen him since the family moved in. That makes 2 steps backwards as far as I'm concerned.

One reason that posts have dropped off from me is that blogs are now blocked at work. I used to be able to take a few minutes and blather away here when things were slow. I may try posting via email again to see how it works.


  1. I think one of the worst things the government did in the states was outlaw singles apartments and the like. I personally don't like babysitting other people's kids because they don't take care of them and I don't like being told I can't live where there are no kids.

  2. I am at the age where kids should be someone else's problems and frustrations.

  3. I can only handle kids in very very small dozes that is why I do not go visit my friends very often.

    Even in Houston I hate to have to put up with the neighbors not kids but grandkids and their noise levels.

    I think a lot has to do with the parents. As a child the neighbors would tell my parents that it did not even seem like a small child was living in the apartment.

  4. Tffnguy - I could not agree more about the government doing away with singles only apartments.

    At the time I rented out a condo and I did not want to lease it out to a person with kids but had no other choice or get sued.
