I just found a copy of this that I had posted on our bulletin board for a while- (I'm cleaning house!!) and thought it might interest folks - so here's a repost. I called it "We are not alone". We sure deal with a lot of these.

Call them Robs top 10 list for cohousing: 10. Community dinner - organization, kids behavior at, menu and food preferences 9. Meetings - number of. Lets have a meeting to talk about the number of meetings?? 8. Communication - where do we vent when something aint right? 7. Discovering personal attitudes - Recycle? Nah..........get out of my face. 6. Use of common areas for private gigs. Can I have my high school reunion in the commonhouse? Glee club? Unitarian church? Ritual dwaridian sacrifice to the earth mother? 5. Noise - Can I chainsaw wood at 7am on Sunday? (not at Sharingwood you don't) 4. Kids - Parenting, childcare for, watching out over, disciplining kids not your own in common areas 3. Neighbors outside cohousing - We are not a commune. Really! 2. Pets - Get your !@#$#@! dog out of my flowers! 1. Strangers peering into your window - Oh hi! We are just passing through and wanted to look at this cohousing stuff I heard so much about.......(This really happened to me just last weekend) Rob Sandelin (wearing a robe now on Sunday Mornings cause you never know who is looking) Sharingwood >From uci.com!cohousing-l Thu Mar 2 18:23:42 1995 ..
