New Neighbors

We have lived alone in a field for 5 years. This field is supposed to hold 1 million homes – I am rounding up.

A lot.

We live in an undeveloped development that has started to become developed. We have lived with vacant new homes around us for a year, all in various states of construction. We knew that maybe, just maybe we would have neighbors someday.

We do! Two homes were recently purchased so we have neighbors after 5 years. Right next to us neighbors. Like 15 feet away neighbors. It must have made construction sense to build homes right on top of our house when there is a gigantic humongous field surrounding us, full of vacant lots.

Or maybe we are just that awesome and everybody who’s anybody wants to live right near us.

That’s probably it.

We feel sorry for those neighbors because since we have been by ourselves for so long now, we just might think they are quite interesting and it would not be outside the realm of possibility for us to stand out in our yard watching them in their yards. Waving a lot, saying “hi” a lot, asking lots of questions.

A benefit to having new neighbors is that they had new appliances delivered which means that we scored a great big box! And because I am a stay-at-home mom who never tires of stockpiling gear and activities that could come in handy on the days that my kids are driving me bonkos, I had no reservations about running outside to ask the delivery drivers if I could have a box.

It’s a fabulous box!


New neighbors also means that I can whip up some sort of “Welcome” treat and I am already thinking about what that will be!


Have a thought? Happy to hear from you...
