I'm Andrea, and this is my personal blog. Thanks for being here! I usually post on Fridays and Sundays, when I share something that makes me happy or a spiritual thought for the week. Sometimes I manage to squeeze in another post or two.

Crazy Neighbors and Big Trucks

Check out this truck that's outside right now. Little Boy is in love with it:

(I had to take this photo from the upstairs window--I didn't want the work crew to see me. Awkward.)

There's a bunch of work going on at the apartment next door. The last tenant who lived there was...mentally unhealthy. Let's just put it that way. Anyway, she decided that she'd like to remodel her apartment--and ended up causing $20,000 of damage. (We did hear a lot of loud noise coming from her apartment when she was "remodeling". We just thought she was weird. It didn't really occur to us that she was violating all sorts of housing laws.)

So that's why there's an enormous truck outside right now--the management finally hired someone to fix the damage. The crew is using that arm thingy on the truck to lift pallets of stuff over the hedge and onto the front porch of the apartment. Little Boy thinks it's pretty cool. Heck, I think it's pretty cool. It's not every day that we can watch big ol' loud trucks from our front porch.


  1. Oooh....very cool, indeed!!!! I just hope they're quiet during nap times. ;-)

  2. Little boys and construction equipment. Does it get any better than that?

  3. That is definitely a memorable thing for a little boy. Trucks are fascinating to little boys and some little girls too!
    I love the picture of you and your son, Andrea. It is so sweet.

    I see you've been reading up a storm on Good reads. I love that site.

    See you there!


  4. I have spent many days watching large trucks out windows with my little boys. Enjoy it. One of those magic memories.


Please, chime in!
