Scaredy Cat

Hi there the last time I posted I had told an Electrifying story LOL. Ok I'm cheesy and I know it.

Well onto the next weirdo thing that took place. Saturday night I was reading before bed like usual. I had turned off the light and had just falling into a deep sleep. Riveting huh? I woke up to the sound of thunder and saw lighting flash. I sat up and looked around and noticed that our bedroom door was opened half way (I never keep our door open at night and I always lock it) between that and the thunder I was terrified. I woke up Tom and told him to shut the window so that it didn't rain in and to shut the door. I don't know what he was thinking being half asleep but he left the room and was checking all the other windows in the house. It was a horrible storm with a ton of lighting and after what had happened on Friday I was terrified let me tell ya, and so were the dogs! Daisy came over and was shaking up against my legs and Isabelle was glued to my side. I got out of bed and as soon as I went to reach for the door handle the door slammed shut in my face. I freaked out big time! I tried opening the door and couldn't get it to budge. I was hysterical by this point (lighting,thundering even worse now). I finally thought to unlock the door and ran out into the living room looking for Tom. He was no where to be seen so I turned around and went to go back into our room and the door slammed shut on me again! Remember here that I had just got my butt zapped the day before so I was an emotional wreak! That was enough to send me over the edge completely, I finally opened my door and as soon as I did lighting struck somewhere close by and it Thundered the loudest I have ever heard I dove into bed and hid under the covers with the dog. I was hysterically crying and finally Tom came back in and held me until I calmed down. He had went outside to roll up the van windows and heard me screaming and ran back inside. This all took place in a matter of a couple of minutes but it was like a horror dream that I couldn't get out of. Tom said I have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder now. I am terrified of storms and I don't see me getting better anytime soon.

I have a question though that I haven't figured out yet. How did my bedroom door get open when neither Tom or I got up? Hmmmm is right.

We have a lot of weird stuff that has happened but you would think I'm a nut if I so much as told you a bit of it. :) Maybe I am a nut after all LOL.

Anywho there is a awesome contest over at Skeins Her Way go ahead and check it out for a chance to win some Spud&Chloe yarn.

Have a great Memorial Day weekend!

Best Wishes,

I love the look!

New blog face and I love this one! The colors are awesome and it's so pretty. :)

Have a great night.


Hello :) I know I have been MIA for a while but hey I've been a busy woman.

There are times when my life seems extremely crazy and I guess I just continue to go with the flow and try to ride it out. It's hard a lot of the time and I get tired of the fight and just want to freeze everything.

Take 2 weeks ago for instance. Tom's Grandmother that had ALS passed away on Friday May 8th may she rest in peace.

An hour after we received the news the following happens. Let me paint the scene for you. I was sitting at my desk on the computer (yes like usual) I had been on my favorite web site Ravelry and I had the tv on watching the updates about a severe thunderstorm moving through. I looked out of the front window and I saw some lighting strikes in the distance, I thought it was just so spectacular. I was typing in to my link thingy and next thing I know I am on the recliner and shaking like a leaf.

Yes as you have probably guessed I got my butt zapped. By the way I can laugh about this now since it's been a few weeks. I was touching the keys on my lap top at the exact moment lighting hit the top of our chimney. I am ok but I tell you what it scared the ever loving snot out of me. My hands hurt for several days and were pretty numb but other wise it was more of an emotional mess up. It fried pretty much all our electronics. We lost the following: T.V, DVD, Converter Box, Xbox 360, Stereo, Printer, Coffee Maker, Tom's computer cable (luckily his laptop wasn't plugged into it), and two of my lap top usb drives no longer work. Oh and it blew the M key off my computer which I am guessing is the key I happened to be touching when I got zapped. Our chimney has bricks falling off of it on one side and some of the flashing blew into the yard, it blew one of our fuses (the glass kind) so bad it kinda melted in the fuse box lucky we rent and the landlord has to take care of all that but guess what we don't have? You got it Renter's Insurance. So we lost everything and now have to slowly try and build back up. I know I am so lucky that I am ok and I am thankful for that everyday but all I can say is "AHHHHHHHHHH" :)

So yeah. Life as I know it. Oh and by the way I am terrified of Thunderstorms now and I will tell a wonderful story on that tomorrow. LOL

Have a great evening and unplug your electronics!
