Some of you might know we moved (again) to a new townhome, and we absolutely love it. Love the neighborhood, the neighbors so far seem quite friendly, spectacular upgrades throughout the home, and just love the layout of our new place. There are a few drawbacks, but nothing we can’t cope with. No place is perfect. But this is close.
So, I went grocery shopping this afternoon, (hubby is working today:( ) and decided to have a little party with my kids to celebrate 4th of July. My husband took time off for the move, and because he is still relatively new at Disney, he doesn’t want to use too much vacation time.
Getting out of my car after the shopping trip, I noticed a group of people across the street, bbq-ing, chatting, music playing, and I waved. So, they yelled over…‘come on and join us.’ How sweet is that? Very sweet, indeed. So, my son comes out, takes the food inside, and I walk over with my dd. I come to find out from these folks that my landlord is gay (I kinda suspected but whatever)…that he hasn’t ‘come out,’ yet, and they proceed to talk about a series of other neighbors. I listened, they were very kind to offer me food…they said if I ever need anything, to come over. Truly, nice people. But, you know, I remember back in our neighborhood in PA–the gossip. The drama. Who knew what about who. So, I hung out there for a little while, and really liked the people I met. But, I didn’t know how to take this ‘information’ they were sharing.
I don’t want to judge anyone–but what do you do when people are gossiping? Is it gossip for people to talk about neighbors the way they were, or could it be seen as giving me a heads up on certain people? Just curious as to your thoughts.
I also felt sad about my new landlord…that he feels the need to hide his true self. I’m against homosexual lifestyle, but I would imagine it would be very trying for someone to lead this fake/double life, pretending to be straight, when he is gay.
Anyways! Happy 4th all…just wanted to share this, and see what you think.
PS: I think we might buy this place–the owner is open to that, and we are tired of moving around!:o
