Hanging in there

Thanks everyone who commented on yesterday’s post and said a little prayer for us. Yesterday I was on edge all day (emotionally) and today I just feel deflated. I didn’t encounter The Neighbor yesterday (thank God), but Addison said he talked to him again and told him not to approach me or talk to me and basically stay away when Addi wasn’t home. Addi thinks The Neighbor will respect his wishes because The Neighbor seems to think Addi is one of his friends.
Addison thinks I’m jumping the gun by wanting to move out right away. He doesn’t think The Neighbor is a threat in the way I think he is and could potentially be. This is one of those times we clearly are NOT on the same page. He says we can move if that’s what I really want, and now I’m lefting doubting myself and wondering if my fear is irrational. Hence, the deflatedness. Or maybe it’s a feeling of defeat. I don’t know. I still want to move though and am going through a couple dozen listings I received from my realtor friend. It’s good to know there are options.

I did have a very nice time with my friends at the Pastries in Paradise show even though it was so crowded and I was a little annoyed at all the strangers bumping into me. Personal space, people. Afterwards we all went to TGI Friday’s and ordered a bunch of appetizers to curb the sugar we ingested at the show. So Saturday night was nice. And I did snorkel a little on Sunday afternoon at Rick’s Reef. The tide was high and I had to work a little coming back in because the current kept pulling me out. Next time I’ll wear fins for sure.

    Sweetie,
    I don’t think you are over-reacting.. you reacted is what counts and if you feel endangered than that is your feeling.. I don’t want to see anything bad happen to you or addi, there are definitely some precautions that need to be considered when addi isn’t around though for the mean time or until you feel somewhat safe again.. Have you spoken to the crazy neighbor’s family? you can always file a police report.. if you like I can have my son’s godfather or my uncle come and see you.. let me know..
    Let’s do lunch next week.. craziness at work right now..

    Thank you sweetie! I needed that validation. Lunch next week sounds great. Then we can talk about hiring a security guard from your uncle’s place to patrol my house. LOL

    Josie – I’m sorry to hear about your incident with The Neighbor. I think you should file a police report. Sometimes, sadly, jail is the safest place for the unstable. Our government doesn’t have the means to aid the mental and family can’t have them committed against their will. I hope you are feeling better. I saw your pastries in paradise post and was so sad I wasn’t going to be able to go. That guy must be Willy Wonka! Hey, I wanted to get your opinion of restaurants to visit while I’m back home for vacation. You always have such good looking food posted! Take Care!

    Addie/Josie, give us a call at the FOKAI shop 649-1081 if you need any help in this matter. We got your back.

    so you did have a good weekend, ‘sides that incident…wow, you’d probably hate to live near oakland (which is the next street over from me–i live on the border of emeryville and oakland), too many crazies here…hope you’re feeling better….i’ve got a bicycle pump to help your deflation…;-)

  6. Tom says:

    well damn nobody better be bothering you if you’ve got the fokai guys on your side!

  7. Josie says:

    Thanks Steve! Addi laughed when I told him and said that was cool.

  8. Lescentive says:

    too funny.. yeah.. bring the fokai boys to the BBQ.. the demon neighbor definitely or shouldn’t bother you anymore.. lol.. hopeful.. oh yeah.. I got DSL at home.. lol..

    file a report. if you can do it low key, better. but there needs to be a paper trail if anything will be done. your filing won’t be enough to change much, but it will be a start.
    so very sorry you have to go through something like this. home is about love, about security, about a safe place to be. any you’ve lost that now (hopefully for just a short amount of time).
    be open to staying. this may settle down, and you can be happy where you are. and if he keeps acting up, then take care of yourself. sorry we can’t help you move.

    fins near or over the reef are a must!

    Trust your stomach! You’ll find with age it’s better to listen to your first instinct. Be safe, be happy, be secure and then you can take better care of your “little family”.

    God gave us instincts for a reason. Many women had their lives saved because they didn’t disregard their fears. Conversely, some women were harmed because they disregarded something as an “irrational” fear. I’m not saying the guy will harm you, but just concurring w/Cris: Trust your instincts! (Whether it’s telling you to move or to stay… We have faith in you to make the right decision for yourself and your family!)
