Sometimes being all by oneself in a house can be nice. You can eat whatever food you want, watch any shows you like, work on crafts, read your book quietly. Yet sometimes, it's not so nice.
I have lived in this house since last July. About once a month someone rings my bell or knocks on the door after dark (after 8pm, even as late as 1am). When I look out the window no one is there. I'm pretty sure it's just some neighborhood kids (I live in a very quiet, almost Stepford, kind of area) and if I knew that was true I'd be okay with that. But the fact is that it creeps me out. I'm just sayin'.
