I live next to the party condo; their friends and neighbors gather to drink and laugh regularly. Before I had the baby they would stay up VERY late and get obnoxiously drunk. By day they are very sweet and I really like them - I just don't have a life where I can join in the merriment. Since having they baby they've been really responsibly quiet until last Friday night.
Coming off a rough 3 day cold, husband gets up at 6am and I can't sleep. I've already taken one sleeping pill and it's not working. The music pounds next door - actually it wasn't that loud but I was freaking out as I always do when I can't sleep and have alot to do really early!
So I went out and yelled "hey, can you turn the music down?" and they did.
The next day was awkward, whereas I may not normally not smile and wave after every single pass of their porch today felt odd, how do I tell them I'm not upset, I was just really sick and couldn't sleep? I couldn't tell if they were studiously ignoring me.
A week went by and finally yesterday I caught my neighbors eye and she profusely apologized and swore to never play the radio again to which I said it's okay!
And now things are back to normal.
