i need my sleep!

Sorry if you fell victim to my Twitter spider spaz on Thursday night. For those who don't know, I found a giant spider and Steven was out of town. And I tried to kill it, but it got away. That was the start I got to my weekend...

{oh, hey mom! i love when you open the windows!}

Friday started out wonderfully. I left work early and my sister and I went to the mall. We had fun doing a little shopping, then returned home for an afternoon nap. We had the windows open, the weather was lovely. Katie and I went to dinner, stuffed ourselves, and then came home to sit on the couch and watch our girly tv shows.

{ooo! is that a birdy?}

We went to bed at 11, but then watched another hour long tv show and passed out shortly after midnight. At 1:30-ish we were both woken up by my neighbors music and party guests. It's not the first time they have woken me, it's been three or four times. I called the cops after the second time and they had an officer give them a warning.

{you're still here?}

Well, this time I had enough. I called the police and filed a complaint. The party guests scattered at the sight of the cop car and the music was turned off. Ahhh, back to bed! Or so I thought. About a half hour later they turned the music back on. At full-blast. I was so pissed! I almost called the cops again, but I really didn't want to deal with it at that point. It seriously sounded that there was a subwoofer in my bedroom.

If it happens again, I will be calling again. I need my sleep! I had to babysit 4 kids under 3 1/2 the next day. By the time I got them to bed, I was ready for bed myself!

Have you ever had to deal with loud, rude, or unruly neighbors? How did you handle it?

Here's to a good night of sleep!

  1. Ugh your neighbors sound like jerks. I would definitely call the cops.

    If it makes you feel better, in 2007 we had neighbors whose backyard was behind our backyard. They had two dogs and they must've worked nights shifts because around 1 AM their dogs would go out the back doggy door and proceed to bark. And bark. And bark. Drove me NUTS. So I called the police, more than once, but by the time the cops would drive by, a few hours later, the dogs would have barked themselves out. Of course, at that point I would be wide awake, my night ruined.

    I eventually left a note on the neighbors' door and for awhile the dogs would be quiet. Every few months, though, I'd have to leave another note.

    ANYWAY. In your position I'd probably just keep up with calling the police. Your neighbors do not sound nice =-(

  2. LOVE these photos! Can't wait to check out all the stuff you've made.

    Ah...jerky neighbors are everywhere, aren't they????????

  3. I know how you feel with awful neighbors. I'm dealing with terrible neighbors as we speak! I parked just under 5 feet from their driveway and they called the police to get my car towed... $126 later :(
