Today's Excitement

So much excitement happening today!  My brother has some tenants renting his old house here.  Turns out that these are not the kind of tenants a landlord is hoping for.  They were due to be evicted on Wednesday thanks to nonpayment of rent, but we got a call that the eviction had been moved up to today instead. 

So I headed over there to see what was happening since my brother is in another state and couldn't make it.  I was really nervous about being there.  For one thing, I had my four year old with me and for another, I'm kinda small, so if anything really dangerous was going to happen I was prepared to floor it on out of there. 

When I pulled up, there were no cops there.  I drove on by and pulled over and made a call to the husband who was coordinating this whole shindig from his office.  It was kinda creepy.  There was nothing happening in the neighborhood, it was way too quiet, but there was this really nice mustang in my brother's driveway.    No sign of anyone so I went down the street, turned around and parked a few houses away.  Pretty soon a woman came out of the house and stood there in the yard talking on her cell.  Obviously nobody had moved out of the house yet like they were supposed to. 

So I made another call to see if anyone had spoken with the Sheriff's office.  The next thing I heard was:  "Get out of there now! The mustang is a stolen car and the cops are on the way to arrest someone."  I felt like I was in the middle of a movie!

Did you hear a sonic boom?  If so, it was because I was hotfooting it out of there as quick as my mini van would go!  If I hadn't had The Youngest with me, I might have made my way down to the cul-de-sac to watch the excitement, but to make matters worse, my phone battery was dying and was beeping loudly too.  My family knew where I was, but didn't know what was happening and I didn't have a phone charger for the car.  First thing I did was head to Walmart to get a charger for my phone so I could keep someone from calling in the Cavalry to come find me.

The whole thing has been rescheduled for tomorrow now.  I do plan on going back over there, but there's going to be other family members with me this time.    I'll let you know how it all turns out.  Pretty juicy stuff today though!  :)
