911! Good Morning Officer…

***Note: If you are here for the real Blue Monday scroll on down past this post…

Dear and I are a little on the “Blue Side” this morning…

 Last night when Dear and I went to bed the new resident above our condo was having a “row” of some kind. Although the previous residents were noisy walkers we never could hear voices or actual words through the ceiling. Well last night I heard more words and noise than I wanted to hear and the words were not good. It sounded like the young lady was being taken advantage of. We went to sleep and then I woke up at 2:15 A.M. because of a very loud thump and the girl was crying “Help Me, help me, you hurt me”. We heard her say help me a few more times and then heard her moaning and crying.  That was it!!  I got up and called 911. We heard the officers knock loudly on the door but we don’t think the door was opened up to them. One of the officers came to our door to make sure they were at the right condo. We now know the Camarillo Police Dept. can find our condos. Yippee! We crawled back into bed at 3:15 AM. Dear and I were not able to go back to sleep and He gets up at 5:00 am and leaves for work at 6:00 so needless to say we are both dragging. Poor guy has to go do his job and train a contractor. The only thing I absolutely have to do today is go buy some milk.

I’m thankful to God for the peace that I live with day in and day out in my married life…

  1. Ah so sad that people live like that. . .I hope your dear has the energy he needs to get the job done today .. .and I hope you can catch a nap . .

    I’ve wondered from time to time. . .should I call the police now. . .and then I wait .. and wonder some more and finally do call. It’s a good thing you did call ..

  2. Oh my…been there Ellen. And then….after the police arrived the neighbour’s wife came over, battered….and angry…at ME! Sigh. It is a whole l’ifestyle’ I do not understand and am grateful that I don’t

  3. Oh… that’s so sad. Yes, sometimes, I take the peace in my marriage for granted. After hearing you tell the incident, I will remember to not take the blessing of peace in my marriage for granted.

    I hope you and your hubby get to go to bed early tonight!

    Have a wonderful day, Ellen – just as you have been a wonderful bloggy friend to me! 🙂

  4. Sadly this will likely not be the last you hear of this couple…unless the woman leaves and stays gone.

    I’m glad you called 911…so many people refuse to get involved these days.

    This reminds me of the blessing it is to live far from the maddening crowd.

  5. Oh Ellen that is so unfortunate. It is an akward situation but I had to call the police on the next door neighbors several times, a teenager, her father and boyfriend. But to have it upstairs is just too close to try to sleep. There is no way you could not respond to someone saying “help me”!

  6. Bless you for getting involved and calling for help. How terrible it can be wondering “what next and when”. May God lead you to “do the right thing” and may He keep the young lade from more harm.

  7. Good on you for doing something, Ellen. My neighbours used to ignore my cries for help. :S I felt so alone. I thank God he never abandoned me and used the Police to get me out of there to safety. God is good.
