Yep that's me. I did nothing for the house this weekend except mow the lawn, bid on a few items on eBay and sell our fish tank (also on eBay).
Good bye Orangey and Catfish! We're too busy to take care of you anyway.
I have a few other things to sell on eBay, namely my old manual camera, which I haven't used for years. Why store things when you can have some cash in your wallet right?
Last night we went to the CAPs meeting and reported the suspicious activity on our street.
I am referring to the resident prostitute and drug dealer.
The police were like, "Wow, it's great that you are so aware of what's going on on your block." I had to laugh to myself because Steve and I are like a couple of old ladies watching everything. Any "strange" noises and we are peeking out the window to see who is disturbing the peace in our little haven. But you know what? That is okay by me- no one can say we aren't concerned citizens.
And then our beat cop talked about how he thinks that landscaping and sweeping your sidewalk have an impact and are a deterant, and I was like elbowing Steve, "I sweep the sidewalk" - see see! Although I like to think of myself as individualistic, I also like to be validated by authority.
We are also going to work with the Rogers Park Community Council to try and get that building cleaned up; they work on landlord issues in our area.
Oh and here's the funny thing. After we report the "problem" building last night, Steve finds this on the ground in front of that very same building. Strange....huh?
