Into every life...

...a little noise must fall, especially around here!!

Building a house turned out to be much cooler than I thought it would be, but everything has a downside, and mine starting today consists of this:
Oh hell yeah: the lot directly across has begun construction.  From a personal standpoint it doesn't bother me, but my clients are going to have to spend some of the next 100 days hearing me say, "WHAT??!  CAN YOU REPEAT THAT PLEASE!?" on the phone over the din of tractors, cement pumpers, forklifts, and of course, Tejano music

This is what we accept when we buy into new neighborhoods.  I feel sorry for the guys adjacent left of us - they just brought home a new baby five days ago, and they mark the start of their new son's journey through life with all this racket.  And the house adjacent right of this has a 4-month-old baby.  And if the house adjacent left of this doesn't have a baby yet, it will in a matter of weeks.  And MY baby (the really big one) is working backshift this week and trying to sleep during the day, so it's not likely to improve HIS frame of mind either.

Such is life.  With our luck, everything will get completed around here just in time for the next hurricane, which will blow it all back down and then we'll start the cycle all over again.
