Oh, I need the sleep alright

I need to start writing my ideas down for writing. Frankly, I'm exhausted. Remember how I said I hated sleeping. I meant to say that I hate that our bodies need to sleep so much. We have some new neighbors living in the house above us. In a word, I would describe them as AWFUL. To preface, we have lived in this wonderfully, awesome and perfect basement apartment for going on five years now. This is the fourth set of tenants in the house above. Fourth. So, I think that gives me room to be a tiny bit judgy and matter-of-fact. I think they are selfish and completely inconsiderate. It's two mid-twenty something guys who walk around like they have 50 pound weights on each foot. Even our nanny has noticed that these guys are MUCH louder than the previous tenant (who she thought was very loud). On top of that, there is no furnishings or decor, so when they talk it just echoes and I can literally make out words. What is even worse is that we can all easily hear when they are walking in their second level. The sound bounces all the way down. AWFUL.

I've got every excuse and rationalization in the book.

I know I live in a shared space and I expect to hear some level of people living upstairs. But I don't have to put up with neighbors staying up into the wee early morning hours or coming home and banging around for an extended period of time at 2:30-3 o'clock in the morning. I mean c'mon already. There is something called apartment etiquette. Most people in the city know of it. The walking around upstairs will literally prevent me from falling asleep and will surely wake me up in the middle of the night. I'm a light sleeper. Earplugs are not an option as I have a small child and need to be able to hear him.

That's my sob story. That's why I'm completely drained. Feeling exhausted beyond repair.

I need to take more pictures specifically for this blog.
