17. The barking woke me from a nap yesterday.

My son and I are sick, we were napping and the barking woke me and him. I was like WTF! I am also 48,000 words into writing an 80,000 word novel. It is so hard to think with the dog barking, especially because I can see and hear the dog from my desk. The weather is finally nice enough to open windows. But then I have to close them to concentrate. The other day I was going to write the barking dog into my story but I was focused on the scene I was writing, but I still might write it in.

Calling AC is still an option if the dog keeps being a nuisance. The barking ordinance says something to the effect that 'if the barking bothers a reasonable person' so the letter I wrote and delivered is how I am trying to establish that I am a reasonable person. First a polite request, then a letter, next I will record/video the endless barking which is when I will call AC to step in.

I don't want to cause the neighbor to be fined money they just don't have. I would feel bad.
