I cannot believe what happened yesterday to me. It is for this very reason I am not liking my neighborhood. Yesterday was cleaning day for me, bill paying, etc. Pretty much a day in which I don't get ready for the day. On top of the chores that need to be done, I also have my children I'm keeping tamed. Anyway, early afternoon I'm busy on the phone. I hear a knock on my door knowing it was the little neighbor girl across the street. I'm not in the mood for play dates (has anyone heard of calling first?), I don't want my house destroyed (I'm trying to clean it) and I'm on the phone, so I decide to not open my door. Nothing wrong with that, right? Well, ten plus minutes pass and she's still knocking, yelling, turning my door knob, and pressing the door bell repeatedly. I couldn't believe it. I was so angry. Of course my kids want to open the door, but I didn't want to deal with the fits that would take place because of me saying NO to her coming in. After she finally left, I then had to sit my daughter down and explain proper doorbell etiquette, if that's what you want to call it. Now from the beginning, I've never had a very relaxed feeling about my daughter playing with her, so those feelings were playing a part in it also. Yesterday I wasn't in the mood to deal with another child. I cannot believe the rudeness that was displayed. It's like everytime I walk out the front door with my children, I'm bombarded from across the street. Here we are trying to wash the car, or most of the time, leaving for errands. What is with that? Today, I walk out to the car w/ my son to go and pick my daughter up from preschool, and here she comes across the street. Needless to say I was in my car very quickly ready to back out. I have no idea if I'm being ridiculous, but I'm dumbfounded at the whole incident. That's not the first time she's tried opening my door without me opening it first. Anyway, just had to get that off my chest.
