I love this kind of stuff. Thanks for hosting this site. What a great forum for people to vent or express their feelings.

You do know you are coming off to people as the neighborhood nutjob, right? Just so you know.

Anyway, I totally understand what you mean. With the price of gas and the failing economy, it's a wonder anyone can afford to do anything. I'll pray for your son's safety.
That's a tough situation to be in.

Yup. Those bushes were the bane of our existence, so we pulled the majority of them up and cut the rest way down. We were handed that mess. Wish we could have done it earlier, but had to save up money. Now, we can't afford to do anymore landscaping until my husband finds better work with better pay. Or until we get another winfall. I enter a lot of sweepstakes and win things like cars and stuff. Ok, so that's it. Have a good one!

Funny that - since I'm trying to STOP the insanity... and open discussion. But they thought John Adams and Ben Franklin were crazy too...

I know all about those kinds of personal situations - I was 'self employed/under-employed' for 3 years... with the paint peeling on the trim of my home... I wonder what stricter covenant would have fixed that???

what line of work is your husband in?

Agreed, the stricter covenant would not have fixed it, but I do get the point of having covenants. Actually, my husband and I were talking the other day about how we would tend to be more lazy with yardwork and upkeep on the house if we didn't have some fear of the HOA! So, it works good for our personality types. Keeps us motivated.

Some other neighborhoods look so horrible, that it must be depressing for people to come home to that everyday. I'm grateful that we have a bright, clean, sun-shiny subdivision. If it starts to go downhill, that would be bad for me mentally.

My husband works for Choicepoint during the day, and Starbucks at night. He makes independent feature horror movies in his (ha ha) spare time. Sometimes if I stand real still, I get to see a glimpse of him.

It seems to me that the homes in the neighborhood that need the most work are the rental homes. It's not up to the tenant to paint the house, it is up to the owner. In addition, I think the owner, if they are going to rent their home, should also be responsible for the yard work and should be required to hire a yard service to do just that.
