Remember when I put post cards on my neighbor's mailboxes? Well, its been almost a month now and I received only one "response". (A man and his daughter down the street said Hi when B and I were playing in the snow, and remarked on my postcard)
Honestly, I'm bummed. I really want to meet my neighbors! I want to get to know them and to help them out. I'd love to hear about their lives and become their friend--or at least know their face and name so if I see them in the supermarket I can say hi!!
I guess they are all busy. Or they saw my postcard and laughed, before tossing it in the trash.
Last week I was out walking and I saw one of my neighbors out in her yard with her dog. I waved. She didn't. On my way back by her house from walking the loop through the road, I tried to talk to her. She said something to the effect that she was busy and grabbed her dog and ran inside. I was pretty upset when I got home, trying to figure out if I had been rude. But I know I wasn't. I guess she was busy? Or unfriendly? Or just didn't have her make-up on yet?
I'm such a friendly person--I love talking to and meeting new people--I wonder if my upbeat attitude annoys people. I don't want to bother people.
So yeah, thats the update. I guess I'll give up now (well, maybe they'll be outside this spring and I can meet them that way!)
In order to cheer me up, my husband sent me the following meme:
Rachel, Deanna, Paulina, Kristin and Shawna (got your name this time! :P)
