I mentioned in my last post that the woman downstairs had moved out a few days ago and that seems to be the case, except that she hasn't totally left yet. I saw a moving truck here the other day and watched them fill it so I assumed they were moving. Everyone left that afternoon and didn't come back that night so I felt that this confirmed that she had in fact moved that day. So the next day when I came home with the kids, I parked on her side of the driveway. (Actually its really my side, but I let her have it because I was worried that the kids might hit her car with their doors) So then last night after I had gotten all the kids in bed, the doorbell rang. Usually I don't answer the door after dark but I looked out and saw her car in front and answered it anyway. Without even a hello, the woman says all bitchy 'Can I get in MY driveway?' I should have just told her that No, I could not leave my children alone while I move it over ONE SPOT! I wouldn't want anyone reporting me, after all! But because I hate conflict, I went out and moved my car over.
For the next hour, she felt it ok to vacuum, bang around and play music even though she knew the kids would all be in bed. Then she left. Hasn't even been back since. So instead of just parking BESIDE my car in her ORIGINAL spot, she had me go out, move my car so that she could be here for an hour cleaning. She could have parked on the road for that matter!
I don't want to offend anyone for this, so please do not take this the wrong way as I have no issue with anyone's chosen religious views. I believe though that all of this negativity comes from the last time I spoke with this woman and informed her that I am divorced. She had asked if my husband worked away and I told her that no, its just the kids and I. She is Jehovah's witness and I have no idea if they are against divorce (Im assuming) or not. But it seems that ever since then she has just been really horrible towards me. Before that she was always negative saying one bad thing or other about her apartment, the weather, what-freaking-ever; but never about me.
I think that she is gone for good now, but I have no idea. Im afraid of her coming to my door again, so I don't want to take my spot back but at the same time, I don't want whoever moves in to think they can take it either. Im just glad to have her out of my life and hopefully who ever moves in down there is nice. Neighbors are hard, but sharing a house can be a lot worse.
Oh, and before I go I just wanted to thank you all for supporting me with the last post. It was a very difficult few days but things are pretty much back to normal now. My car is fixed (kinda), the kids have antibiotics, and Ive managed to clean everything except the older boys' room (which I still refuse to do).
