Its been a long day coming. But the day is finally approaching.

The neighborhood is approaching a possible place of peace.

The wild and unruly neighbor that I have spoken of before.. the one made a name for herself as kind of an alcoholic and a whore. Word on the street is that she’s been given an eviction notice.

Some of the neighbors are finding it, a victory. Others are finding it a tragedy although they agree with the decision to have her removed.

I’m not quite sure of what will happen with her. Although I have seen her in great decline over the past several years. Including her own health, both physically and mentally.

Drugs, alcohol, and sex simply do NOT mix!!!!

When we had heard the horrible news that she had a sexually transmitted disease, we felt really bad for her. We knew at that point that she was an alcoholic, but to have this added to her plate had to be difficult.

But to all of our surprise, her sexual activity actually increased into higher rates AFTER the diagnosis… which is insanity!

She made company with unsavory people. More alcoholics and drug abusers. And kept the company for more time than the rules of her lease would allow.

Relationships with the rest of us declined. Particularly her next door neighbors.

After that, nobody wanted her around anymore. Not just because of that, but I think that deep down they wanted her to get help. She simply refused to seek it for herself.

Before any of us knew it, there were tons of people on our property that simply didn’t belong here. They were loud, obnoxious and unruly at night, causing problems with noises. The police constantly being called to her apartment. It got so much worse. And now with the news of her being told to leave in the next month, we are hoping that there is a silver lining to the dark clouds that this woman brought along with her.

She’s hit up everyone who lives here for money. And still owes everyone back. Including me.

Many of the neighbors just couldn’t understand how she could get away with what she was doing. But most recently, some of this woman’s visitors came here and parked in a weird place to the point that the vehicle blocked any ramp or access to the sidewalk. And unfortunately someone else was needing emergency medical help and they were blocked off and had to take an alternate route to get to them.

I think that was the last straw.

Most are talking about throwing a party when she leaves. I’m not on board with that kind of thinking. I am just hoping and praying that #1- this woman actually gets help and #2- that the person who moves in after her won’t be worse than she is.

We’ve had that issue before. Someone leaving and then having someone else move in and they were worse than the first person that moved out. I hope that this won’t happen.

But for now… DING! DONG! THE WENCH IS DEAD!!! And everyone is singing along. Figuratively.

 

Oh! I just cannot stand it. “I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it!”.

I’m at the point where I do not know whether to scream or puke.

These plans are a very long time coming. I’m going to be leaving out of town for a few days and I am just so pumped out about. I made these plans back in February and now it is so close that I can definitely smell something. Maybe that’s just my own body though.

At this point in time, I’m left with just under 36 hours before I leave home and beginning my travel.

The main purpose of my travel, is supposed to be a surprise. So there will be no fine detail of where I am going and what I am doing. Only that I am excited to do the things that I plan on doing, and even more thrilled, excited, and stoked to finally meet the people that I am scheduled to meet. Thus, probably the desire to puke. Hopefully, not on them though! First impressions and all. It is true what they say about them.

I really am looking forward to taking this as an opportunity to do a little self-examination and reflection as well. Even though I am considering this trip “my mini-vaca”, I cannot think of the last time I took time for myself, all by myself. Probably not since I moved back from New England, which was in 2008. Even before that, my only travel was probably in 2007.

I just believe that there’s a lot of crap that I┬áhave in life. Stuff that I should fully get rid. Being away from home, will help me do that. I think it is the perfect chance!

I fully intend on having as much fun as possible. I have no expectations of this trip. Not of where I will end up, and not of those whom I will be around. The perfect example to avoid any disappointments. If one does not create expectations, then there is less chance of any disappointment. I truly believe in that.

So as I am gone, I will let come what will. And when I return, I should’ve had experienced a wonderful time. And I am sure to write a post about it in some way.

My only problem is the excitement is just bursting out of me!! I wished I was leaving NOW! I’m sure that many of you reading this can understand my feeling.
