I Spy on My Neighbors…

I try really hard not to be one of those nosey neighbors that everyone hates.  However, when your blinds and windows are open, your eyes can see, and your ears can hear… you notice things. All sorts of things…

And I didn’t really hear the words.  I just heard the screaming!   I  eventually called my husband to ask his opinion about sending a squad car over to check in on them.  I kept saying “If they are still at in ten minutes, I’m calling…”  I chickened out and went to another neighbor and asked what we should do.  She instead told me that they fight all the time with the windows open and that it probably wasn’t as loud as it sounded. Reluctantly, I retreated into the house.  [How to Recognize Domestic Violence Signs]

You know what they would think if they saw me standing there “Oh my Gosh!  Is she standing there again?  Such a nosey neighbor!”   Okay, so maybe not.  But that is what I feel like they would be thinking.

What should I do to not be a nosey neighbor? (Even an accidental one?) I don’t want to close my blinds, I don’t want to close my windows.  I certainly can’t run around with ear plugs and blinders on.  I’ve decided I’ll just…

Focus on the Trees!
