The source of my annoyance

This first picture is the house that is being built directly across the street from my house. It can be yours for the low listing price of *evil voice* One Million Dollars!

This is the view from my driveway. Notice that the white truck is parked pretty much dead center to my driveway (and has been every day for the last I don't know how long). Also take note to the right side of the picture, truck parked to one side of the driveway with it's tailgate down. This morning there was another truck parked to the other side of the driveway. Which brings us to the source of my annoyance. The driveway is surrounded by trucks which makes it a royal PAIN IN THE BOOTY to leave the house. The truck that was gone before I could take the picture could not have been closer to my driveway without actually being IN the driveway.

And last of all is the sign that is planted in front of the house, anyone notice the date on it? Now, I took this picture not more than 15 minutes ago and last I checked it's already SUMMER. *whine* When oh when will the overpriced house be done?!

Oh yeah, don't ya like the port-a-potty in the front yard?

Yeah, I can only hope!

The weekend of the 17th there were 'No Parking' cones up everywhere, then on Monday the entire block was closed off! Noone could get in or out cuz they were connecting power or something. It wouldn't have been bad, but there was no notice of what was going on AT ALL!

I hear you...living near homes being built can be a pain. Some of the contractors who come out here just don't care where my driveway is! I've had to ask them to move their trucks several times and they always look annoyed. Fortunately, the house next to us is almost done and then they'll be down in another cul de sac.

Doris...yeah, the no notice thing was rather evil. Especially since MiKael had a doctors appoingment! GRrr!


Jamie, I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks the process is a pain! (I fully admit I would love having my own house built though). And I do have to admit that one time when they were parked SO CLOSE to my driveway that one of the guys ran out in the street (in a helpful way, not an 'oh gawd, a woman driver' kinda way) and he guided me out of the driveway.

The day I posted this I got no such luck though! Also on that day they were digging out the driveway (oh, the bobcat! but that's another story...it was painfully amusing) and filling it in too. I'm really crossing my fingers because noone has been over to work on the house since!

Porta-Potty in the front yard? For a million bucks you'd think they'd have put in some plumbing!

I certainly do hope that there is a whole lot of house behind there...for one million, there had better be. The first thing I noticed was the port-a-potty...that would be annoying enough for me, though I would be easily annoyed by the trucks.

Funny, the port-o-potty is the first thing I noticed!

It was really cool a few years ago when our subdivision was still under construction, and some bored teenagers decided it would be fun to knock over all the port-o-potties.

How large is that house?? A million dollars???
