Another post about knobs

This weekend I met my firefighter neighbors in a very unconventional way. I locked myself out of my house taking the trash to the dumpster. I know. I'm super sly.

First they tried slipping it open with a tool but that didn't work, so, after realizing all the windows on  my first floor are locked, they got out a ladder and she climbed up to check out the second floor windows. All locked. After some discussion, they decided the cheapest option would be to break out the big guns and cut off the knob. An ax, crowbar, and electric saw later, we had a knobless door.

Who DOESN'T like to end the weekend with an emergency
trip to Lowe's?






















This has been in my purse ever since. Not sure why.























Moooom. Get IN here!























The she neighbor volunteered the he neighbor to help me replace the knob but, being the stubborn homeowner that I am, I did it myself. I'm a handy lady, folks.

The creepiest part of this whole thing is that we had a ladder, heavy tools, electric saw, and three people essentially trying to break into my house and not one neighbor came out to make sure everything was okay. I didn't even notice any curtains rustle. Real great Community Watch, guys.

At least I know I have some nice, helpful neighbors...and some creepy ones.

Oh, I also built myself a bookshelf...






















and began painting the wall in my upstairs hallway in stripes.
Get my good side, Mom!



















Have you ever met a neighbor in an unconventional way?
I like to make my clumsiness known at first impression. It's just easier that way.

  1. I've mentioned this before, but there is no better neighbor story than the time our downstairs neighbor got it a fight with her baby daddy other baby mama and pulled out her weave and left it in the middle of the road. She since been evicted. Having firefighters break in is pretty exciting though. Do they know any cute single male firefighters?

  6. I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of
    your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
