Jason and I currently live in the 2nd safest town in NC. We have a police station, fire station, grocery stores/shops, and a very good elementary school within walking distance. However, we live between a neighbor who is constantly drunk and loud and another neighbor who has a dog that barks all the time. It’s so frustrating. Home Owner Association did talk about it in their newsletters and now they just ignore it. Someone did take legal action against the dog owner and at one point the dog stopped barking for a while. Now he’s out and barking again, I would guess the dog’s shock collar ran out of battery or that the dog is immune to the shock and it does nothing to him.
I want to go and address these problems with the neighbors, but Jason wouldn’t let me. He thinks that I would escalate more problems, especially with the drunk lady who likes to sit outside her porch, telling whoever she is on the phone with to “F” themselves.
On my spare time, I like to casually look at new homes. A couple of weeks ago, Jason and I went to look at a few houses, but there were some disappointments. Sometimes pictures and descriptions can be misleading until you actually went to see it. There’s this one house that we really liked, and it was perfect in our descriptions and price range, but it was sold to the person who went to see it just ahead of us. It was disappointing. The house markets seem to go pretty fast. We’re not in any hurry yet, we just want to see what’s out there that meet our descriptions. In the meantime, we’re trying to fix/remodel our current house and trying to stay positive with our neighbors.
