Getting through the week

I think this week is going to go by fast.  The company owners are out of town this week and my boss generously offered that I could work from home as much as I want this week. Unfortunately, I couldn't yesterday, as I reminded her we had a webinar meeting to do and I needed to be at my work computer with our IT guy, so I had to go in.  I'm working from home today and hopefully can on Thursday too. What I come in under budget in gas this pay period can go as extra towards the home equity loan.

My evenings are being spent watching Season 4 of Game of Thrones. It's on free with our cable this week, so now I can get that season watched and not wait months for the dvds from the library.  I have finished watching all the episodes of Justified, so this was good timing.

While watching tv I'm trying to knit my blanket - for like the 4th time! I don't know what is wrong and why I can't get this one done. It's the same pattern as the one I made DD. It's not that hard!

We tried to have a nice relaxing Sunday with our turkey dinner, but it was just not to be. The drug dealers on our street all left early morning and were gone all day it it looked like we might get a nice quiet day, but the drug dealers behind us were busier than ever, with lots of commotion going on. Yelling at one guy to leave. A couple hours later an apparent overdose of one of their scums, with an ambulance helping someone laying on the ground out in front of their house. Then after dinner witnessed a guy punch a girl right in the face standing on their back porch. That call to 911 got 3 sheriff cars out here!.....only problem is, for whatever idiotic reason, they all came to our street and sat there trying to figure out what was going on...we didn't see them because we were watching out the back. Then they all left in a hurry and didn't even go to the house! DH called dispatch back to make sure he gave the right street address and they said yes, they dispatched to the street behind us. Un-be-lieve-able!  Then when I went to bed we could hear loud talking and yelling. So loud that DH heard it on the other end of the house and he had the tv on. DH got the cops out again and these 2 told him that lately, when they've been running license plates, they are coming up as stolen cars. He's had 4 in last couple of weeks. We live in the freaking ghetto! Except we are out in a nice suburb, or so we thought.

Also found out yesterday that meth addict mom is back living at the dealers on our street, after almost a year absence. Just wonderful. Now the place will be crawling with even more cockroaches and maggots than before.  DH was outside yesterday mowing, etc and 2 church ladies were going door to door (are they nuts?!). They went down to drug dealers first. On their way back past our house DH told them to be careful in this neighborhood, lots of drugs, etc. They said "we just talked to your neighbor Shannon...she was really nice". And DH was like "Shannon? The meth addict is back there?". You should have seen their faces. Yesterday the boys were outside trying to put up keep out/no trespassing signs at the entrance to the cul-de-sac......most likely an attempt to stop all the cops that keep coming down our road and then, of course, turning around in the culdesac (right in front of their house) to leave. Our good neighbor happened to just get home about that time and this time he finally took care of an issue. Went out there and told them they can't do that - the culdesac is part of all of our road easement for this road and the turn around is required and it's not our fault their property owner put their house right on the edge of the culdesac. Also, technically half of the first part of the culdesac is on good neighbors property, which he has to keep reminding them.  So, they put their signs right in front of their house. I told him he should have asked them if they were doing it to stop the 700 people a month going to their house!

Rainy rain rain today, but sunny and in the 60's tomorrow and Thursday.
