As if I have time for it, I'm now in a fight with my city and school board regarding opening a back entrance for a newly built school. People park in front of my house everyday. Kids walk through my yard, I'm OK with that. I just close the blinds so the dogs don't go crazy and I go in the other room with Kendall twice a day for 1.5 hours.
But now they want to open the back entrance as another way to pick up the kids. Long story short, it is going to get worse.
I don't want to be "that" citizen. The one who makes a huge deal out of something. I hate confrontation. But I have to. See, my dad can't even get in our driveway when people are blocking it. The kids are crossing where there is no crosswalk. It is dangerous on all fronts. Not to mention... I shutter to think what would happen if we ever had a seizure we couldn't stop and I had to have an emergency vehicle pull up to my house.
So here I go. I'm Cooper (the little dog) trying to put up a good fight even though he's old and tired. And our mean city and school board are bullying me and throwing their weight around. I so want to throw in the towel, but I won't. Not without a good fight. Ho hum.
