Things were sorted out. Ryan confronted the teenage boy, who was responsible for the duck, they got in an arguement but he came over with a huge box of chocolates that evening and apologized.

There is a uhaul in their driveway. And itk, we didn't force them out. The couple is getting divorced and the gal is moving out with all her kids.

YaHoo! It will be over soon. The boys may have been acting out because of their parent's behavior. It is certainly no excuse but it man be an explanation.

Divorce is hard on everyone.

btw, the chocolates were a nice thing to do.

I am sorry if you think I implied that I thought you 'forced' them out. I have neighbors that are real nightmares and there is no sort of mental problems w/them like divorce. I surely would understand if someone were getting divorce. My neighbors enjoy tormenting others as some sort of game. Some people abuse animals, they try to upset the neighbors. No matter how hard we try to ignore them, they still continue. I don't know if we move if that would resolve the problem or not. May move to someone worse.

At least you are aware of the reason for this treatment. Divorce is like a death maybe worse. My aunt once told me at least her husband died. My husband is still alive. She t hought death was end of torment.

Not at all, itk, I know you didn't imply 'force', I just didn't know how else to explain it.
This couple has been married for 2 years and her 3 kids are from 3 different marriages. They aren't his kids but I can't imagine being a kid and having my mother getting married and divorced 4 times by the time she was 40. Kinda crazy. As far as I know, the guy is moving back in today.

It's like watching soap opera only 'live'. My cousin sent me Christmas card and told me she now has 4 new grandchildren. Her youngest son married woman who had 3 children and he married this lady who was pregnant with his child or so she thinks? She said they would have an interest ing Christmas with all these new children. I truly hope th is marriage works for the children's sake. My cousin and her husband would be wonderful examples for them to look up to. However, if she is not even 30 years old! We are still trying to accept the fact that he married someone with this many children. It is his first marriage. I doubt if he really knows what to expect. Much less what his food bills will be! Shock to everyone.

OK this is sort of a Vent, but more just sadness. The venting part of things is that I have entertained for dinner 6 out of 8 nights this last week. ARGH! I had Christmas day off, and yesterday off. Tonight I will be entertaining again. I'm running out of ideas (and food!) my grocery budget is shot all to h*ll, and I have used some of my Christmas money to supplement our groceries. Yeesh.

OK, having said that, I don't really mind having folks over, I'm just a bit worn out. The folks we are feeding tonight just lost a Mom on Friday afternoon and its just very sad. It wasn't unexpected, but its just still so sad and feels unfair. I'm going to make soup tonight and serve with bread and hope that will do. We'll take them to our usual neighbour's party for a bit then bring them back here. The saddest part is that tonight is their anniversary. Married 18 years. I don't think they are going to feel very celebratory this year. My heart just aches for them.

Alix,
of course your worn out, many of us are at this time of the year. But what you are doing is such an unselfish thing..Bless you for it. Having friends who are sad at a time like this and just having them come for something comforting like a nice warm soup and bread that's perfect. They won't feel it's to fancy but feel that wramth that you only get in a loving home..This way their minds have a chance to get away from the sorrow for a little while and give them a much needed break. When we lose a loved one the last thing we want to do is to cook..If someone does it for us and set's it before us we eat, we might not want to, but we do and in the end it helps.
You are truly a friend that anyone would be proud to have.
