Attack of the Crazy Neighbours

Crafting will be on hiatus until my life makes sense again.

For the past month I have been dealing with my upstairs neighbours - two kids with two toddlers and animals. First they flooded my apartment when I was home. Then they caused a huge domestic disturbance with us and now, this past weekend, they have done the ultimate damage - Destruction! Another flood, but nobody was around to catch it, and it was far more torrential then before.

The best part of the story is the 'parents' were passed out while their toddlers (two and under) were turning on taps and making a water park out of their apartment. We are talking two inches of water in their unit when my landlord broke in. Meanwhile my bedroom is just janked, as well as the hallway and part of the kitchen. I thankfully only lost my bed, but I have no where to live until my room is ripped open and reconstructed.

Good news is their kids got taken away from them by child services, and They got evicted (again). We rescued their starving drowning kitten. He was trying to eat rocks he was so hungry. I named him Jean Poutine.

When ever I can find my camera I'll try posting some pictures, but my life is in upheaval right now so it may be awhile.

Also it is far to hot to think about crafting. Yuck.

Here are so quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh whick make me feel less crazy:

“Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis
on which the world earth revolves - slowly, evenly, without
rushing toward the future. Live the actual moment.
Only this moment is life.”

"People deal too much with the negative, with what is wrong...Why not try and see positive things, to just touch those things and make them bloom?”

“Reconciliation is to understand both sides; to go to one side and describe the suffering being endured by the other side, and then go to the other side and describe the suffering being endured by the first side.”
