I don't always like to be social.
Especially when it's 7am and I'm doing dishes and may or may not have a bra on.
Which may or may not happen
daily more often than I'll admit.
So the fact that the view from our kitchen window was this...
caused me a bit of anxiety. Okay, a lot. Anytime the neighbors would be in their house with the blinds open and I would be looking out mine, well, you know...I have to do the whole I'm-not-trying-to-look-into-your-house-I'm-just-doing-the-dishes-and-I-have-to-face-this-direction-to-do-them-and-since-our-house-is-on-a-hill-above-yours-that-involves-seeing-into-your-life-which-believe-me-I-really-have-no-interest thing.
All nonverbally, of course.
The story, as always, is much more involved, but that's a whole other post, and due to the fact that this blog is public...well, I'll just leave it at that.
And don't leave "why don't you just shut YOUR blinds?" comments because I. NEED. LIGHT.
(Clearly at any cost.)
But, guess what's been going up this week to enclose their side yard? (insert dramatic music here)Apparently the feeling was mutual. Sure, they said something about "increasing their yard by 50%" and "somewhere for the dogs to play" BLAH BLAH BLAH. Deep down, we know that's all applesauce and frankly I don't care anyway - I'm busy crying Tears. Of. Joy.
Instead of wanting to frost the glass,these blinds will be open from now on. Did I say blinds?
Oh no, a view this beautiful deserves something much more interesting than blinds...
