The minor exception to the excellent time was my neighbours next door. They moved in one week after we did and they have been the bane of the neighbourhood with their loud music and yelling at all hours. I had been quite pleasant in dealing with them in the past, asking them to keep it down without lasting success. Saturday I snapped and screamed at them through their door at 2 am. They wouldn't open the door to me as I was pounding on it like a mad woman and shouting at them to STFU. I was frankly surprised that I did not have a bruise on my hand. I had also called Bylaw Enforcement, but it was prom night and they were very late in getting here. Anyway, there is some positive to come from this. I'm not sure if it is having a crazy woman for a neighbour or the prospect of being charged and issued a $405 fine, but I haven't heard a peep out of them since.
The major takeaway is that lazigyrl and I got to catch up with each other as we hadn't seen each other for quite a while. It was very pleasant (previous paragraph excepted) and it was really sweet that she kept me company while hubby was away.
