    I took in a delivery so I could meet a neighbor across the street :lol: she's really nice and her babies are super cute. (Same one from overhead thread.) Hopefully once this is all over we can have them over for a bbq or something fun.

    OMJG my neighbor is finally mowing her lawn! (it was legit about 1 foot tall at this point).

    Also we are looking at "living fence/privacy" options to screen off her yard from our view. Her yard is this abandoned wreck from when her daughter still lived there and nothing has been picked up in years...I mean like random shit just left out to weather in the sun, screen porch in tatters, shed door just open and random crap spilling out everywhere....massive 10 foot "burn" pit filled up 6 feet with branches that haven't been burned in years. Its horrible. And it seems like she only mows once every 2 months.

    Currently looking at 10-12 foot tall ornamental grasses to "test" out. We need to do something to keep M in the yard, and we'd also like to actually enjoy our backyard without having to look at the derelict condition of her backyard. We want something low maintenance, provide a privacy screen, and not be super expensive.

    That’s a cute story though. And super nice in the early postpartum days especially.

    There's a small group of very loud people outside right now. Laughing and chatting and otherwise being obnoxious at almost midnight. They weren't out there 15 minutes ago, so why now?? Plus all the neighborhood fireworks that have pretty much been nonstop since Memorial Day. Ugh.

    I want to close my window and turn on my AC but apparently neighbor is just getting out of- or into- the shower and their window is wide open with no curtain covering it :eek::oops: I don't want to look like a creeper like I was trying to watch. It's SO awkward though. Their bathroom window is directly across from our bedroom window. maybe 10 feet away? I can 100% clearly see straight into it. And sometimes hear things.... And I really don't want to. Just keep your blinds down :no:

    I am so glad our only bathroom window faces my best friend’s house. Even if I have a brain fart and forget, she’s the only victim :lol:

    Our neighbor was kind enough to call us last night and warn us that a coyote had chased their schnauzer in the backyard. It’s something we always know to be careful of, but damn I didn’t know the coyotes were getting brazen.

    Our neighbors put up a big Trump banner :no: I'm not entirely sure if they believe covid is real too.

    Why are trump supporters so showy? Like, do they realize they are making a mistake but can't admit they might be wrong so you have to double down on it?

    I do not feel the need to put a giant Biden banner up.

    There’s a house about a mile from us that both has a bunch of huge rainbow flags and Trump flags. So many flags. I don’t think they see the conflict there.

    OMJG @Comet how scary! I now vote (as much as I’d be fuming over that fb post) that you just lie low until the move rather than calling in noise complaints. He’s a fucking asshole and he deserves the complaints, but it’s not worth having to worry about him trying to retaliate in some way.
