I'm trying to be patient...I really am!

With all of these construction workers out there...they are building on both sides of us. But they blast their music all day long, from dawn, literally, until 6-7 at night. And last Thursday, Steven had to go out there at 10:00 pm to tell them to cut it out. He actually told them, "That's it guys. You're going home now." lol! Friday morning I was literally at the end of my rope with the music and noise! (No wonder I have had a screaming headache for months!) So I called the police. Now, I have talked to the supervisor out here and he said he would take care of it, but he didn't. So I did.

And it's hard enough to get out of the driveway with all the trucks as it is; but now there is a HUGE 'River City Waste' trash container the size of a rail car out in the freakin' middle of the cul-de-sac! So, if I am just backing out of my drivway like normal, I would slam right into it! And all the workers decide they need to park on MY side of the street, right in front of MY driveway, so you can imagine the maze I am driving BACKWARDS through in an EXPEDITION! This morning, one guy actually had to move his truck so I could take the kids to the bus stop. But then when I left, he put it right back, but even worse!

GET A CLUE PEOPLE!!! They know somebody lives here and that I am at home, coming and going all day long! Why can't they park on the other side of the cul-de-sac where there is nothing? They can't build a house there, because that lot isn't a's a cliff.

EW I hate when people are inconsiderate. Sometimes I just wish I could live in a forest somewhere and grow my own vegetables and leave suburban life far, far behind.
Sorry this has been so rough for you! Is there any end in sight?

I was so excited to see a new face in my comments (and a South Texan at that!), so I thought I'd come by and return the favor. Hmmm, seems like we have a lot in common. :) I'll be back to visit (and I'm going to start Self Portrait Tuesday tomorrow).

I hear ya barkin', big dog! A house on the street over from mine was getting its roof done earlier this month...I went out at like, 9am to get the mail and all I could hear was AC/DC blaring. Now, don't get me wrong. I'm all for AC/DC. I'm getting old though, because AC/DC at 9am really annoyed me. ;)

There are 5 houses on our little street, and the last 2 are being built now. They should be done in a couple of months.

The thing that was really making me so mad was that with all that music (that was louder than our TV!) Claire could never take a nap. She doesn't take one every day, but a couple/3 times a week she catches up. And with never being able to fall asleep, boy, you talk about CRANKY! And I had just had it!

It got sooooooo quiet after the policeman left. That afternoon, Claire and I both took a nap! lol!

Does that big dog comment scare you?

We have a house going in across the street and quite often I am having to go out there and ask them to rearrange their vehicles so my child's bus can get here. grrrrrr But I would die with the music! Oh...I had a bunch of guys swearing and laughing loud enough for me to hear them in my bedroom...thank goodness Ben couldn't hear them on his side of the house.
