Nice to new neighbors.
For the past year and half the house attached to mine has been empty. I won't lie, despite the decreasing property value, it's been wonderful. No banging screaming kid, no pretending I can't hear my neighbor's fighting, and extra parking. It's been glorious.
But all good thing must come to an end.
My new neighbors moved in yesterday.
If I was REALLY nice I would have helped the physically move their stuff, but if I hate to do that for my own stuff, I"m not about to do that for a stranger. Besides, people can be weird about touching their stuff.
I brought over an apple tart from Trader Joes.
I joked around with them and said, "I didn't bake it, I just reheated it. If you like it, you can thank Trader Joes."
They laughed and I think it was good impression.
Would I do it again: Sure, if someone else moves in next door to me.
Cost: Don't know, probably under $5
Time: 20 minutes to bake it, 3 minutes to deliver and chat.
