I'm not sure how much truth is in those thoughts, but I do like the side we live on better. We are within walking distance of the grocery store and more important, the coffee shop. Very little happens here in regards to the negative, which is how I like it. Although certain recent events have me reconsidering where we dwell.
Over the past 2 months, the police have visited the house across the street no less than 5 times. Almost every time I have been outside with the kids. I swear we really were playing and not spying! Being that we were outside, words were heard. Words such as PFA and custody. It's nothing major and certainly none of my business. I will say I am tired of seeing the police. Especially when I have a 5 year old who screams out the window , "Look, mom! The cops are at that house again". Nice, right?
It appears that things may have calmed down across the street, but now there's drama next door. An ambulance has visited them 3 times in the past week. It's nothing major from what I am told, and that's good. What worries me is the kind of people who might be living in that house.
At first they seemed quite nice - mother and daughter. We chit chatted a few times and one day the mother offers her daughter as a babysitter. "She loves kids". I am all over someone watching my kids so the husband and I can go out. Until...
A few days later I over hear the daughter talking loudly on her front porch about how high she was from some pills. Well, there goes the babysitting offer! Unless she has something to make my son sleep. Kidding! Maybe.
I have also overheard fights about alcohol and missing pills. These are the people my kids live right next door to. Seriously?! They are, for the most part, really nice people, and things could definitely be a lot worse, but still.
Now who has that money tree so we can go by ourselves a new house?
