Opinion Poll

Ouf! What happened to last week. I don't even have anything written on my calendar from Wednesday to Friday and I have no idea what I did besides work those days. September is tough for me because I feel like I can't waste a single second outside because the cold and rain is coming soon.

This weekend I did some rearranging of the garden furniture and I really it now.  In fact, I like it so much, I am angry with myself for not doing it sooner.

I also took out the hedge trimmer and smoothed out some ivy walls as we seem have have had a sudden growth spurt - maybe they are preparing for winter too?

On Thursday I was playing with Eco in the yard - she likes to play with a hard plastic ball in her pink pool - she spins it around and around and around and has a great time doing it. I even taught her how to push the ball back to me when she flips it out of the pool. The problem is the neighbour's dog whines when we play. What can I do? It's not my fault he's whining? I even put a board up against the fence so he can't see us. All was well and good, Eco and I were in the middle of our playing when my neighbour sticks her head over the fence and says "Are you doing that on purpose?" She proceeds to give me shit. I'm not going to lie - my first reaction was to be pissed off - so I took Eco inside.

I have since moved the pool and play area to the opposite side of the yard and we are trying to accommodate her request but part of me is still pissed that her dog's problem has become my issue. Plus, being an over-40 adult I really don't like getting in shit from someone else - do you know what I mean? I think the issue is more about HOW she did it and not WHAT.

your comments?

Well first off, I certainly don't blame you for being pissed off. Just reading about the encounter aggravated me.

I am, like you, a bit dumbfounded as to why she jumped you when its her dog that has the issue. I'm not sure what I would have said but I don't think I would have been as accommodating as you tried to be in the situation, especially given her approach.

Thank you Alan - glad to know I'm not the only one who's first reaction was to be aggravated. Thanks for the comment
