I've been dreading the knock on my door -- but I knew it was coming and I knew it was something I was going to have to deal with. I got back from Target this morning (YES! I went to Target at 10 am on a Sunday morning and it was still filled with screaming kids) and wasn't even in the house long enough to take my coat off when I heard the knock. Needy Neighbor was there, with apology in hand. And you know what I told her? I accept your apology but you did cross a line and I don't want anything to do with you. Oh, I may have said it a little nicer than that (not much) but there it is. She asked for another chance at being friends but I told her I don't want to have any part of her drama. Told her she was nice enough but way too needy for me. So now that's not awkward is it? Living right next door to someone you want absolutely nothing to do with. But hey? What am I supposed to do? Keep dealing with her endless bullshit problems? No thank you. Of course I'll be polite when I see her but keep it quite clear the line is drawn and I'm staying on my (sane) side of it. Yeah for standing up for myself!!
