So Barb, our new neighbor lives across the street in the house with the purple shutters. Matt was out mowing and I was taking him a drink as she was getting home from work. She hurried across the street and quickly asked if we had bought the house. We told her we had and she was so very excited! She just kept saying, "OH! Thank God! I'm so glad it is you that moved in and she is never coming back!"
She went on and on telling us she was a grandma and that she loved kids. She asked if we had any, we said we didn't... yet. She told us we needed to get busy and have one so she had a baby to come over and hold!
Barb made sure we knew that she was parking in the driveway and not the garage because she had 2 dogs she let live in the garage when it was too hot to be outside, one is blind and runs into things. She also has 3 cats... 2 of which have lung disease. She just made me smile!
It was so nice to meet a neighbor and know they are excited that we are here! I can't wait to move in!
