Parking Problems

I'm annoyed to say the least.  I'll be polite as I'm practicing to be a better human around my newborn.

I'm entitled to two parking spots as a tenant in the apartment in which I live.  One is designated with my apartment number under the canopy the other is with the three available slots in front of the building.  Since I at present have but one car I don't make too much of a fuss about the second slot disappearing on a regular basis.  But that will soon change when I have a second vehicle in this household and that will be soon; probably before the end of the year.

Today I left for my mid-morning walk with Little E and my spot under the canopy was vacant as my husband had taken the car to work.  I pulled in the trash and recycling bins from the road and went on my merry way.

When I got back I found differently.  In my spot was a jeep with mats under it of which belong to my neighbor that already takes up two additional spots to his one designated spot under the canopy.  He and his spouse have three vehicles.  There is plenty of over flow parking available.

We have asked our neighbors, nicely, several time to allow us a spot in the front and our designated one under the carport.  I know that Randy did not ask my spouse for parking privileges as my spouse cannot be reached by phone right now.  Though I wished he could be reached so I could warn him to hold his temper in check when he gets home for lunch.

In other news, Little E is now 16 weeks old.  Oh my has she grown.  I'll know just how much on the official numbers this Friday.


  1. That is really frustrating!!

  2. I hate when neighbors are jerks about parking. We ran into it all the time when we lived in our condo. So annoying!

    I feel like I say this anytime you post a picture, but she is too cute!

  3. Hope you didn't have to be a Human Shield to calm the Parking problems! Apartment living can be the pits for just that reason alone, not to mention all the other aggrevations.

    Maybe when you move to the new place (if that option is still on the table) the parking situation will be better. Or maybe the neighbors will be better!

    Keep sending those pictures. Stasy is right. She is adorable.
