Apartment Life #208



This is a new weekly blog post that I'm calling Apartment Hell  Life. I've mentioned a few times some of the crazy things that go on in and around my apartment complex in the past 21 years that we've lived here and people keep telling me I should write a book. But instead of a book, I've decided to share the crazy things that have happened in and around my apartment complex in the last 21 years here in a weekly blog post.

This week was quiet but we have a new next door neighbor who just moved in directly next door to us. They seem nice and they're quiet but they have a large dog that barks and howls the entire time they are gone during the day. I am hoping that the dog gets used to his new place and will stop howling all day soon. 

There have been a lot of police patrolling my neighborhood lately. Seems like every time I go outside to walk the dog there's a police car driving slowly down my street. Not that I'm complaining at all. I think we need more patrolling around here to keep the nonsense to a minimum. I haven't been seeing as may drug deals on the streets or as many cars being broken into or even as many fights going on. Quiet is nice.

Life Update: 

Ken did finally get his lung biopsy but they punctured his lung so he had to stay in the hospital a few hours longer than expected to make sure his lung didn't collapse. So now we have to wait until next month when he sees his doctor for the test results and hopefully start treatment.


So that's it for this week's Apartment Hell  Life! Be sure to come back next week for more.

  1. Hi Mary, I agree with you, think the dog will stop howling when he gets used to the new situation. 🙂

  2. I'm glad the new neighbors are nice, but like you, I sure hope he gets used to his new home soon. Continuing to keep Ken in prayer and sending lots of hugs. RO

    Glad Ken's lung didn't collapse and hope that the treatment starts soon.

  4. As long as people are still intimidated by
    police cars - then that's a good sign .
    Your priority , of course, is Ken. May he have good results and successful treatments!

  6. How unfortunate about the dog. And a punctured lung for Ken, on top of everything? The doctors need to start his treatment soon, for goodness' sake.

  8. I hope the new neighbors dog will settle down soon and get used to the new house. That doesn't sound nice for the dog or the neighbors if he's howling most of the day.

    I am sorry to hear they punctured Ken's lung while doing that biopsy, I hope he's doing well and that his treatment can start soon.

  10. A barking dog can be annoying so hopefully it will adjust to the new surroundings. I hope Ken will have some news soon. It seems you always have to wait a long time before you can get the results of a test.

  13. Its good to see police patrolling your neighborhood, we need more of that. When I lived in Dallas it always brought comfort to me since I didn't live in the safetest of neighborhoods. Sorry to hear about Ken, it just never seems to end for you two, hope you get some good news soon!! Prayers and thoughts for you two.

  18. As if Ken isn't going through enough, they decide to torture him too...unreal! I hope you get some promising news from the biopsy result. I am glad that something is finally being done about law and order where you live and I hope it continues.

  19. Looks like the police patrols are effective in cutting crime and keeping the area quieter. Hope that continues!

    A punctured lung sounds serious, but I gather that's not usually the case. Good luck with the test results.

  22. I'm glad that it's been quieter around your neighborhood. What a relief! Having to hear barking all day and night can be annoying. Hopefully it stops. Wishing healing to Ken and your family Mary :)
