Ok, OP, you go home on Friday's to observe the family? You are a stalker! You need to stay in the office and stop thinking about the family you are obsessed with. Stalking is illegal, whatever your reason for doing it.

Awwww, he's not being a stalker. He's just making some observations as he goes about his day. As a mostly "stay at home mom" (I work weekends), I can relate-sometimes you get bored not being around other adults all day. It's different when you go to work and you have all the dynamics of an office environment. When I quit my full time job, I was amazed at the things that went on in my neighborhood when I was at work all day! The OP is just curious and passing his time when he works from home one day a week.

When the kids are at school a variety of beautiful women come by and visit her and then she will drive off with them and do lunch. I see her with a large group of fancy looking women at the local Starbucks all the time. I also see that she is always coming back from the fancy mall with bags of clothes. She seems to be part of the idle rich who lunch, socialize and shop all the time.

What really impresses me is how many friends she has. A new fancy friend is coming by nearly every day. All her friends seem to be really fancy and incredibly poised. They are all so well dressed. I suspect other wives of local executives.

Do you pity or admire the social life of this type of women?

I almost was that woman. What is to pity?

I don't want to live in that bubble...too fancy for me!
no idea, I've never been rich so I can't say I'd like to live like that or not. Nothing's perfect though.

It sounds like an episode of original, now off the air, Desperate Housewives. Speaking of which, we have a different episode going on in our street, the lawn guy who has to mow with his shirt off with beautiful pecs (he could have auditioned for Magic Mike with those pipes). I have no idea what his face looks like, it just reminds me of that one season where Gaby was into her hot barely legal gardener.

But anway, back to your point...your neighbor reminds me of the character Gaby on that show...lol!

Now that is fun I tell you. *Shopping and going to lunch all the time and dressing up fufu sounds incredibly boring to me. Sounds like she's got too much time on her hands actually and doesn't know what to do with it or how to have fun.
This is judgmental.

No one on this thread knows this woman or the OP at all. We don't know what the woman is out shopping for, or who - she does have kids, you know. She and her friends may be very involved with volunteer organizations, philanthropic groups, etc - this is very common. So what if she and her friends are attractive? I'll tell you one thing - it's not easy staying in shape, and if they are making the most of what they have when it comes to their level of attractiveness, is this a bad thing?

Also, if the OP is seeing her and her friends at Starbucks, that means he's going there too - how is meeting friends at Starbucks wrong or suspect? (No one has said this -I'm just pointing out that the OP lives in the very same neighborhood and apparently frequents some of the same businesses.)

My daughter is an Air Force officer's wife. She and her group of friends are all very vivacious, attractive, and well heeled. None of them works outside the home. They often meet for lunch and that sort of thing. But what they are also doing is TONS of volunteer work, which betters their community. They're just having fun doing it!

I don't work outside the home because my husband makes a very good living and he prefers that I stay home (so do I) so that we're both not in the throes of demanding work schedules. I am sure that my neighbor across the street thinks I live the "Life of Reilly" (whatever that means!) because I am ALWAYS coming in with shopping bags, posting fun stuff on Facebook, catching a plane to Virginia Beach or Europe, etc. But what she may not realize - or put in an OP - is that yes, I'm doing all that, but I'm shopping for grandkids, and I'm visiting kids and grandkids who live all over the world. In other words, my flurries of activity are not self centered, excessive, or seeking vapid attention.

Actually I really like my neighbor, but she and I live very different lives. She has five kids and homeschools, and doesn't work. They have a much tighter budget than I do - and yet whether she knows it or not (actually she does), I was in her shoes once when my four kids were small.

It's best not to judge others - and to work on ourselves rather than making assumptions about others.

I'm glad someone finally said this above. Nobody knows what kind of life this woman has, and if it is all true and her life is fabulous, good for her. Even if people like her or people who don't work are not doing charity work (which I highly recommend they do charity work ), it doesn't matter. As long as they are not hurting others, what is the big deal what they do.
