I’m not sure what to make of our new neighbors yet. They moved in last Wednesday (the moving went on until 2:30 am! not a good first impression!) so they’ve been here for a week.
So far they seem ok. We haven’t really talked to them this week because we haven’t really seen them – they seem to stay indoors most of the time. That’s fine by me … the last renters that were in the house next door (The Rednecks as I called them) were always outside and yelling and banging things around in the driveway. The quiet is a nice change! Especially since I’m still not feeling all that well.
The guy is apparently a car freak – just like the last neighbor! When they were moving in he had boxes of car gear! At least we didn’t see tons of tires like the last guy! I do like his car though – he’s got these really cool halo headlights. I’ve never seen headlights like them. Pretty neat.
Our only problem with the new neighbors so far is that my husband doesn’t want to have anything to do with them. Not that we’ve had a chance to mingle or interact with them so far … but still … my husband is the nicest guy you’ll ever meet. He pretty much likes everyone and is friendly to all he meets … but after our experience with the last renters next door he just doesn’t want to bother to get to know these people.
I think it’s because these new neighbors were recommended by the old ones so they have a connection, AND the night that the new family was moving in we talked to them and he told us about this real druggie guy who lives down the street and what did he see later in the evening … the new neighbor going to the druggie guys house! Chris has said he’s seen him visit the house a few times since they moved in too … so I guess that’s tainted his view of the new neighbors.
My view is that as long as they are quite and there aren’t any unsavory people hanging around their house (or in front of ours!) what they do is their own business. I do kind of hope that Chris is wrong about our neighbors visit down the street though.
