I was right...

A Backyard Battle update.

No one on the HOA board actually LIVES in our neighborhood. Two of the members were so new to the board they didn't even know where the neighborhood was. Yeah, that makes sense. Last night's meeting was a joke of monumental proportions. The three board members and four home owners with violations. Mark had been expecting a turn out of twenty or so people. Sad that more home owners aren't taking an interest in the HOA.

Mark being Mark, was kind enough to point out to the HOA just how messed up their system is. Should be interesting to see if they take any of his suggestions to heart. I think it was about 10 pm by the time Mark got home. At least we now seem to be in compliance with their knit-picky bylaws.

I'm sure HOAs have a place, but they are way out of hand.

My best friend, who does live in an HOA neighborhood spends thousands on upkeep and she can't even paint her house without their permission.

One more reason to stay in the country. I just don't like people telling me what to do with something I own.
