Wrong.  This is wrong, so wrong!

There are some people on the house across the street.  People aren't supposed to be ON houses.  Houses are for people to be IN.  Yet, there they are, ON the house and I don't like it and I let them know it.  I let everybody know it.

And what really bothers me is that, despite me having a cow and all, they are still on the house.  They don't even care that I'm upset, they're just ignoring me, and maybe that's the worst annoyance of all.  No respect, I swear.

And not only are there people ON the house across the street, but they are making all kinds of racket.  It's almost like a thunderstorm and I absolutely HATE thunderstorms.  They totally freak me OUT. 

When I get upset like this, the thing that works best for me is to just go and do something physical.  Just burn up the pent up frustration with some hard labor.  So that's what I did.  I went and worked in the yard. 

It was a good day for it.  We've had some rain recently, so the ground is soft and a little moist.  Perfect for digging into, so that's what I did.  I just started digging.  Digging, and digging, and digging.  It's great therapy, really GREAT therapy. 

I'm resting now.  There are still people on the roof next door and it still bothers me, but somehow being inside the house after a workout like I had makes it all more tolerable. 

So while I'm relaxing away the frustrations of the day, I thought I would blog about it for further therapy.  I think it's working too.

Abby's not here.  This is me, China.  The dog?

Abby is outside filling in the holes I dug for her.  It's just this game we like to play.


  1. Yeah, those roofers can make the loudest noise, even when they're not working on your house.

    By the way, I like the dog angle--that's cute!

  2. Pooooooor China! I feel for ya and those noisy roofers!

  3. Sounds VERY familiar, right down to the digging in the yard.

  4. China, I hear you. What's sad is I totally can relate. The only difference is I would have to 'fill in my own holes'. Hope you're feeling better!

  5. Yea! How dare they stay up there taunting you with all that noise! You need to go out and tell them to quit and go away! They're about as bad as that milkguy that used to show up every week. And how could Abby fill in those nice holes you made? Now you'll have start new ones. And can we chat about those stupid squirrels?? Grayson

  6. All that noise would indeed get on your nerves, China. Gardening is always good therapy. For you and for Abby.

  7. Oooo China, I'll bet your mommy was maaaaad at you. Or was she sympathetic?

    At least she could provide you with a blog post for her blog. :)
