while there is no doubt that i am thoroughly enjoying my mini break, my neighborhood is conspiring to annoy the heck out of me.
a house nearby is undergoing major construction. they start at like 6 AM. they're even there on weekends, sometimes.
i guess i should just be grateful that for now, i have a reprieve from meeting contractors on site at like 7 AM or before 2 PM because they/their guys will be gone by then.
it seems like they street clean every other day or so. or the trash truck comes.
funny, because the street isn't that clean, and we only have trash cans out once a week.
probably just a huge truck taking our mini, old street that can barely let 2 normal-sized cars squeeze through at the same time. no idea why they don't use the major, wider streets.
yep, i'm a total voyeur.
this man across the street has been sanding the trim on his house for days. maybe weeks.
the problem is, i think he's sanding with the smallest sander ever.
like a dremel with the smallest attachment possible.
(basically the size of the thing the dentist uses to polish your teeth).
so he is sanding with the world's smallest sander for around 8 -10 hours a day straight.
i'm surprised the sander's motor hasn't given out.
or that he hasn't blacked out the whole neighborhood from excessive electricity usage.
and when i open my windows to get a lovely breeze in, it gets 100 times louder.
in better news, we got grass!
so fresh and so clean.
i'm a freak that feels guilty about how much water lawns use whenever i look at one.
but even i must admit this makes our yard look so much better and more...
(like that foundation that supports NPR.
wait, maybe they want a more just and verdant world.)
