    UGH! The owners of the apartment building across the street are building an ADU in the backyard for their adult son. The way the building sits, the backyard is actually right on the street so it’s more like a lot that would have a house which fine, whatever. However, the contractor is SO.FUCKING.LOUD. He gets the other guys going and then it sounds like they're having a party. The noise goes straight into our apartment because we are directly across from them. There have been a ton of delays so luckily they weren’t here much over the summer but they’ve been here this week doing stucco. For the past hour and a half, it sounds like a damn party (music, loud yelling and I’m fairly certain they’re drunk. They drink beer all the time). I was trying to do some professional development the district is offering and could barely concentrate because of them. I cannot wait until they never come back.

    Do you have noise canceling headphones?

    I do. I’ve worn them for some of the loud stuff but they hurt my ears after about an hour. Luckily school starts next week and teachers have to be back Monday so they should be gone or almost gone when I get home. I just hope they don’t come on Saturdays anymore.

    It's construction season, though. Taking advantage of sunlight and weather to bank for the winter months is par for the course.

    Lol but it’s California, we don’t have winter! We don’t even get rain! :lol: I got used to the construction part but the loud partying and drinking was getting to me. They shouldn’t be drinking on a construction site anyways (and then driving home to Modesto).

    My hands and wrists had been feeling tender, but my left wrist hurt so bad tonight I haven’t been able to sleep. Baby holding + bad phone ergonomics.

    My wrists have always been stupidly sensitive to strain but I developed pretty bad tendonitis when C1 was a babe. I had to wear braces all day for a while, then at night for even longer to get them (especially left) to calm down, but it did work. Now I’m conscious of how I sleep to keep them straight and that helps a ton. But ofc now carting C2 around it’s started to hurt again.
    Tldr; I feel your pain. :cry:

    I’m sorry that’s been an issue for you. It blows.

    I'm angry crying. It pisses me off and hurts my soul that I can never live in Texas again in peace. I already kinda understood that after watching how the pandemic unfolded there, but the abortion law really nailed that coffin shut. It's a nonissue today, but there was always a little whisper of hope for way later. Nope.

    Those fuckers really want to make this country Gilead.
