My boyfriend and I lived on the first floor of a large, old house with four young women living in the second floor apt. above us with various work shifts/school schedules. It was like living under a sorority house, but once we had a conversation and they did what they could (no shoes in the house/wooden floors, watching noise at certain hours, etc.), we had to understand and accept that it is what it is... Sounds like your neighbors need to be a little more realistic. Let them know everything that you're doing but you shouldn't have to live uncomfortably in your own place. First floor apts. have their issues and the renters beneath you need to understand that - it's a simple fact of life.
