Why I want to leave this neighborhood

Why I want to leave this neighborhood

The kids have been told repeatedly by the neighbor who lives here to not climb the tree.  It is diseased and not safe.  These kids are not only climbing it, but trying to get Zora to climb it.  I told her no.  When I ducked inside to refill my coffee, when I came back out, they were trying to get her into the tree, not FIVE MINUTES after I made it clear that she was not to climb the tree.  (she was outside playing soccer with a different neighbor kid until these kids came over).

I am officially the “MEAN MOM”.

It wasn’t long after this that the tree cracked in half.

  • Random Quote

  • “Eight years of ‘conservative’ government has brought us a doubled national debt, ruinous expansion of entitlement programs, bridges to nowhere, poster boy Jack Abramoff and an ill-premised, ill-waged war conducted by politicians of breathtaking arrogance. As a sideshow, it brought us a truly obscene attempt at federal intervention in the Terry Schiavo case….” — CONSERVATIVE Columnist, Christopher Buckley
