Spiders and drunks

How do I stay positive?

We live wall to wall with heavy drinkers. Christmas and New years has been extremely busy for them. They «party» all day and all night then find a time to «sleep» now and then. That is , they pass out and when they wake up they are at it again. Many days of drinking makes a person insane. So for the last three nights and day´s we have heard screams coming from the person that is in the worst condition. My husband thinks the person is experiencing delirium tremens or some sort of psychotic state. Well…. our bedroom is wall to wall with their living room so there have been some sleepless nights in the past. The screaming is worst. Well ….the polish disco is pretty bad too, actually… so is the occasional singing.

Two nights ago I was fast a sleep when I woke up at 01:30 and  could not sleep again. I called the police but it actually did not change much. So after the sleepless night I called work and asked to work from home and crawled into bed to get some rest.

Last night when we were going to bed it sounded like  we would not get any rest so we decided to camp out in our living room. Which we did and we made it a fun experience. Totally different from the night before when we were giving our drunk neighbors full control over our mood. We already have talked to the neighbours, yelled at them, called the police, talked to the landlord. Nothing we do is going to change the way they choose to live. So the action plan is to open the wall in the bedroom and look at the isolation, improve the isolation and when it is at its worst, camp out in the living room.

When I was putting our duvet and pillows from the camping back ,I noticed two, not one, but two huge spiders in my bed. Ugh….they had come with the madras from the storage room. I saw the third spider when putting the madras away again in the storage room. It is winter!!! There are not supposed to be any spiders alive in January!!!

I love all gods creatures but I actually am not fond of sleeping with them.

That is my story of spiders and drunks for today.

Although my spiders did not have the beauty of Louise Bourgeois spiders which are my favorite spiders in the world.
