Living Next Door to Homer Simpson

Checking out the lot across the way
We moved into our house almost three years ago.  It's not much, but its ours, and I love it!  What I love most is the location.  Right outside the door are hiking and biking trails, the river, ponds, and plenty of room for the kids to "explore."  One of our favorite exploring spots happens to be two lots that are currently for sale directly beside our home.  The lots are beautiful, with amazing views of the mountains, however they are costly and have been on the market since we moved in.

I dread the thought of someone coming in and building a ginormous house that will block our beautiful views and take away our favorite spot to explore.  I'm sure its bound to sell soon, but in the meantime I've made it my secret mission to convince any lookers that they wouldn't want to be our neighbor.

How you ask?  Simple, whenever I see a car pull up to the lot I immediately do the following:

  • Put the dog outside with instructions to bark
  • Tell the hubby to grab a Budweiser, take his shirt off and go sit on the front porch
  • and the best of all.... send both kid's outside to "play"
What person in their right mind wants to be neighbors with The Simpsons?  I'm just waiting for the real estate agent to knock on my door and ask me if we could keep our shenanigans down, but thus far, SUCCESS!!

  1. We're city dwellers, and as I type this...I hear an airplane flying overhead! Your area sounds like a permanent vacation, so I wish you luck in your mission! I'm sure some real estate agents would cringe if they read your post!

  2. ROTFL!!! That's hilarious....! Although, some people welcome the noise so be careful you don;t get that overly friendly neighbor who just loves your kids and thinks your husband is funny, It could all backfire.

  4. Haha! That would keep me away. I would love to keep the lot next to my house empty for a long time, too. I may have to try something like this...

  5. Is that what my problem was? We had terrible neighbors on our street and could not sell our house. Cute article... don't you love living right next to the trails?

  10. This is hilarious. Hmmm the house next door to me just went up for sale. I think I need to put your suggestions into action if I don't like the look of the potential neighbors.
