I was just over reading EmmaSometimes' blog and she reminded me that I need to do my laundry. I better get up there and do it soon. Gee whiz.
I slept terribly last night. Maybe it is because my neighbor is causing me some problems. I don't know. Apparently when Dear Sir and I were taking a nap and the kids were watching a movie yesterday, the neighbor girl came over to play and the Oldest told her that we were taking a nap and she needed to go home for now. The girl apparently did not like the idea so she ran home and cried to her mother. I woke up from my nap with a message on my phone from my neighbor (and I actually checked it two hours or so from waking) saying that her daughter was "devastated" by something and she knows that they are "different" people, but they don't need to be treated this way, etc. She even went so far as to say that she knows that we have new friends, and family visiting, like we dumped them to the side of the road. It was extremely condescending and dare I say, jealous. It was really bizarre. I admit, I flared with sudden anger. I am not an angry person, but I have no idea why someone would think that they could talk to me like that on my machine. Or even on the phone or in person.
I called her right back. She was not home, apparently, but I said that I would like to speak to her in person about this matter, and I have no idea what she is talking about as far as her daughter being devastated (I had no idea what happened when I got the message, I had just seen it at that time on the phone). I told her as well that she had no right to speak to me that way, she was very condescending, and completely out of line.
The funny thing is, her girl came over almost directly after she left that ridiculous message and played for a few hours with my girl. I did not even know about this vile message until her daughter later went home, after my treating her to an ice cream from the ice cream man.
At least I am calm enough now to know what to say to her. It was complete manipulation. Why do people think that they can manipulate me? There have been a great number of people in my life that have taken advantage of me over and over and have gotten nasty with me with all sorts of weird jealousies. I don't even know what kind of jealousies, to be honest. It is the whole tone of the instances.
She is not a Christian, and I can't expect her by any means, to act like one, so that is fine. I do, however, expect her to act like a human being and then in turn treat me like one. All I can do is tell her my standards basically and let her know that I owe her nothing, she owes me nothing, and we are just neighbors. That is IT. Get off my back.
