It’s not been a good day in our neighborhood 

The boys are spending the day with their Grandparents. It’s not been a good day in our neighborhood and I’m glad the kids are able to get away and enjoy the weather in a safe place.

Nothing like waking up to a domestic dispute

My bedroom is on the second floor and there’s a balcony that goes right out from my room.

It lasted about 45 minutes before they at least quieted down enough that I could fall back asleep.

I shared earlier about the shooting that took place shortly before dinner last night.  I spoke with one of my neighbors today and apparently it got much worse last night.

My understanding is that they weren’t sure if the it was yellow house or the one right behind it.  It’s not like one is any better than the other.
