I will admit that in this particular instance I am VERY paranoid.
I watch strangers like a hawk.
So we are moving soon and among the price of the new place, the following get checked by me: Distance from Dh's job, school, violent crimes reported in the area and sex offenders.
Yes I know I must seem crazy.
My children have grown up in an "Everyone knows everyone. and Everyone looks out for Everyone" kind of town.
A few years ago when we had a pretty bad hurricane, people were outside grilling after the fact and passing out plates, it went from one grill to 3 to 10 and half the town. We love this place, but it's time to go.
Kids go to a great school. I know pretty much every face I see in the morning and there are no registered sex offenders or violent crimes in my area.
But like dh says. " Just because you don't see it, doesn't mean it's not happening. People just haven't been caught yet."
So here I am paranoid, because every home I love just doesn't seem to pass the sex offenders test. They are near the schools, across the street from the homes.
What would you do? Just stop worrying about it?
