Woke up on the wrong side of the....

Bed should be the right answer but sadly not this morning. I had a super crappy sleep, or lack of sleep because of allergies. So I slept on the couch. You see I'm allergic to ragweed and I'm sure our neighbours have it in their backyard. I should really take a picture of their yard because it is so bad. They don't have grass just giant weeds that keep getting bigger and are now creeping into our yard. And the weed seeds are blowing onto our grass. So frustrating. And we are not the type of neighbours to go complain but something has to be done so I'll volunteer Chris for the job. :) So do you think I can blame my irritability on my neighbours? Naw didn't think so.
So the lack of sleep has made me kind of grouchy. I feel like I've been yelling at the kids all day and if I'm not yelling I'm crying because I feel bad for yelling. Such a cycle. Thank goodness Chris has a few days off. And we get to have a date night. That always makes me feel better. Bolero here we come. Yes Kristen we are finally able to use the gift card. Every time we've tried it just hasn't worked out.

Tomorrow is the Stampede Parade. YAHOO! Kids are excited not sure they will be when we have to get up at a time nobody should be up at. It's probably not that early for some but our family likes to sleep in.

And before I go I hope no one was offended by my previous post. It was meant in good fun.

I think you can report out of control weeds to the city...and your neighbour doesn't have to know who it is that turned them in. I think the city then comes and checks it out, if they think it is bad, they give the home owners a certain number of days to take care of the weeds. If after that time it isn't taken care of, the city comes and cleans it up and then sends the home owner the bill.

If you did it right before you went away on vacation, they might never guess it was you :)

I think that is quite devious. I like the way you think.

I'm thinking that might be a good idea. It's just getting so bad. and starting to make our lawn look bad. Not that is superb but now getting more weeds.

Check out this link.

Warn them that they could be fined up to $10,000. If they don't do anything about the weeds THEN file a complaint. If they get fined you can say "told you so".

Weeds devalue their (and your) property. Plus it's affecting your health. You have every right to complain.
