How did it get to be Monday so fast? Sigh.
The house is coming along. We're close to pictures, people! The end of this week will see the new kitchen floor and new carpet, and then I'll do my 13 next week with pictures of my house. :)
I spent all weekend on the house. Next weekend, I think I'm going to just put a stop to house stuff, and spend some time on me. Maybe I'll finanlly go shopping. My jeans are about to fall off! I'm down 16 pounds now. I think a shopping trip is in order! Mostly, I'm just really tired of house stuff. I wonder if it wouldn't have been better to stay where everything was organized, and just right.
I'm also having neighbor issues. I have a next door neighbor who is elderly, and I think pretty lonely. He's also an engineer, which may explain the lack of social skills. Anyway, he's attached himself to me, not in an icky way, but in an annoying one. For example, he asked if I'd like him to drive me around to show me all the short cuts. FOUR HOURS later, I've seen all of Richmond, the house he grew up in, all of his schools, etc. I felt obliged, so when grilling out that evening, I made him a burger and took it over. His response? "You're not going to bring yours over and eat it here?" Um, no. Then, he calls on the phone, and says "meet me at the door, please." and brings me ice cream. He asked if he said something to offend me on "our drive". Ugh. I'm like - dude, I didn't feel good, and I was tired and just wanted to go home. I need to but a big old kabosh on this. I don't mind being the friendly neighbor, but I do not need to be best friends with this man. Trouble is, I don't know how to maintain a friendly manner without bluntly saying "you're annoying the heck out of me."
