Shahbazin- I'm glad the lamb is getting there. I'm totally with you on the exhaustion. I feel like I can't function lately, and I'm starting to wonder if I have a B complex deficiency. I can't tell if I'm sad because I'm tired, or tired because I'm sad. I did feel a little better yesterday after making and eating a huge Cobb salad with lots of goodies (romaine, green peppers, tomatoes, cukes, avacados, bacon, chicken, feta, chedder, hb eggs and homemade croutons)- not really happy better, but like a sigh of relief better.
Bethany- it was definately an amusing meeting. The folding chairs just about killed my back, though (DH asked me as we were walking home, "Do you have a wedgie or something? You're walking funny." I had to explain to him that I was trying to wiggle my tailbone back into place!) I could see why our neighbors insisted on us being there- some people were so random. An agenda was there, with a list of topics and there was a time set up for an open floor type of thing. People didn't seem to want to wait for that time though, and were talking about really random, odd things. We did get something done, though- after 7 years of debate over the issue, the board will be simply taking a petition for paving the road. When they get a majority, they're just doing it.
Ah, and something actually was clarified for us! For the past few months, we've been startled awake by blaring horns between 5-6 AM. It turns out- this is some people's method of dealing with our across-the-street neighbors cars being parked on the road!!! The HOA board said that they recieved messages stating that some members will be blaring their horns when the cars are in the road, as if that will magically lift them and deposit them elsewhere.
: We and the people who live next to them brought up in the meeting that not only are we dealing with cars being parked in the road, (and it's a narrow dirt road) but now we're being startled awake by people's horns. It was like a light dawned- gee whiz, other people can hear our horns as well? Where are people's heads? And where did all the adults go? So, no horns this AM; we'll see if that ended things.
