I forgot how annoying wearing stockings can be. I spent my day pulling them up and un-rolling them but it was all worth it. Those bats were cute!
I did not want the stockings to be the main focal point of my outfit considering I wore it to work. I thought by combining the stockings with a below the knee skirt was a nice compromise.
It was not t-shirt weather when we took these photos on Monday. In fact, it was quite chilly but I wanted outdoor photos! As you can see in the background, Philip is also quite content for spring!
Spring is time for new beginnings and I am relieved to announce that my particularly difficult downstairs neighbor is being evicted. I feel sorry for him, I really do but having him around was a bit worrisome. He is mentally disabled and when he goes off his meds, things can get a little scary around here. When we first moved in, I guess we made noises he was not accustomed to and he believed we were spying on him by using electronic devices. He used to get into screaming matches with his girlfriend. I think eventually she got tired of him and moved out. Since January, the police had to come on three separate occasions! They had to break his door in order to get inside his apartment and he was escorted out by a police officer into an ambulance. Personally, I have nothing against the mentally ill. When he did take his meds, he was very polite and friendly. In fact, he was really nice and was a good conversationalist. On the other hand, there were times I was a little worried when he went off his meds because I have a small child to look after. Thankfully, his angry outbursts were never directed at us and they happened while my little one was a asleep. I am so thankful that my kid takes after me and can sleep through a nuclear explosion! I am proud that I didn't keep the house quiet whenever Philip napped as a baby! I know I could have moved but I love my home and the location. If I felt targeted, perhaps it would have been a different story. I think in the end, he was more afraid of us than we were of him.
