Some people have too much time on their hands

Dear Nosey Neighbor,

I realize that you must have too much time on your hands if you felt the need to notify my property manager (which I'm assuming you did b/c you know the owner...or you are just THAT nosey) that "although [my] lawn is being mowed, the flower beds are in need of weeding."


Did you ever think that I might only have 1-2 hrs on my days off that I can manage to mow my lawn (while the boys are napping)!!

I'm not saying that I didn't need to pull some weeds, but thanks for ignoring the VACANT house next door that I was mowing their front yard because, you know, it's the NEIGHBORLY thing to do.

Whatever. Be a wimp.

Oh, and in case you weren't aware, YOU SUCK!

The Geographical Single Mom,



So, for the followers I have left, I've been a little busy. Eric was able to come home for 30 days, and I chose to spend that time with him...and unpacking...and pulling weeds.

We were able to spend our birthdays & 10 year anniversary together. It amazes me how far we've come over the last decade!!

Oh, and I got a new car....a car I've always my favorite color!!!

Meet the Mini Cooper S Countryman!!She is a thing of beauty, and drives like a go kart!
I want to give a HUGE shout out to Alan @ Flow Mini in Raleigh for his extreme patience as I test drove 4 different Mini's and working out the trade in for my Honda. All the staff were amazing & everyone had such a positive attitude!!! I'm loving my new car, and Eric can comfortably fit too!!

Work has been great. I'm learning a TON, but I'm also spending most of my time studying for numerous certifications. I'm off orientation the second week in August & I'm excited, but also scared. I'll talk more about that later.

For the few readers I still have left, thanks for sticking around. More help is headed my way in September and should be around until Eric is finally able to be with us again next spring. I am stalking without commenting, but I do try to drop a line every once in awhile.

I hope everyone is having a great summer, and I have a great post brewing about some tips on how NOT to be a moronic parent! Stay tuned!!!

Stay at em, lady. I get by once in awhile, but think of you guys often.
Swamp Rangers had horses at CJR today for horseback rides for the kids. Tom Moody n I had a great time with our Ranger friends. Afterwards, I hung in the Shopette for awhile talking to April, catching up on the Rudderville news.
See ya at Facebook.

That is the cutest little car! I saw one today that had a bit longer cab and it actually looked roomy.

And that neighbor is ridiculous.

The Countryman is the 4-door Mini, with 4 bucket seats. The great thing is the back seats actually slide forward so I can even fit my double stroller in the back! I also have 2 moon roofs & it came with Sirius radio subscription...and 90's on 9 is my new guilty pleasure...gotta love 90's music.
I get questions/comments about it everywhere I go!

I love you, and you're NEVER getting rid of me. So there!

Good luck on your tests - you'll ace 'em, I know it!!!!

Your neighbor took bitch lessons from mine - I truly do feel your pain! Whatever, karma, dude!

Hugs and don't stress!!!!

Anonymous people are just as dumb when they are nosey neighbors as they are when they are blog trolls. :(

I'm glad you got to spend some time with your husband.

Hopefully, now that your yard is looking better since our visit, your neighbor is keeping their nose out of your business. I love you Mary and hope you and the boys are well. You are in my thoughts and prayers! Big hugs and kisses for Cooper and Carter!!! XOXOXO

So glad you are back. I've been wondering. But it sounds like you have been up to bigger and better things.

Really jealous of your new Cooper. That thing is awesome. Really like the stripe too.


Love the car and it looks just like you. I am sorry for the sucky neighbor. I have had one or two of those in my life. Hang in there girl. I am still here...following you. Give the boys a hug for me.
