My Personal Haunting

Recently, my dear husband drug me out to see the newest Paranormal Activity in the theater. I'm not a scary movie fan, and definitely not in a theater. I'd much rather be at home hiding under a blanket and easily be able to leave the room should the movie become too intense. I have been known to suffer an anxiety attack due to such scary movies. I knew better, but wanting to please my husband, I went along. Now just so you know, I survived. As evidenced by this here blog post. But, I was not without a lingering unease.

At work the next morning, I was sitting at my desk alone in the high school office while everyone else was in an early morning assembly. Suddenly our High School Principal's office light switched off. I looked up startled because I knew I was alone. I got up and crept around my desk toward his door. In that moment, the High School counselor's light switched off. She wasn't in the room either. My heart pounding in my chest, I came to realize that I must have brought "something" back with me from that movie. I had become haunted! Staring into the Principal's office, someone came into the main office behind me, and when they did all the lights in the rooms started popping on again.

Apparently, unbeknownst to me, motion detecting lights had been installed the previous evening, and my overactive imagination had gotten the better of me.

And that is why I shouldn't watch scary movies....

Where ever it is, it plays right into my Snowman Fetish...

Prayers for my Air Force Man

This is my Military Baby. Isn't he cute? He needs some prayers. Nothing serious really, or maybe I need the prayers. My baby was supposed to be coming home in November for 30 days of leave before his next duty station, but he has not yet received any orders. If the Air Force delays giving him orders, he can't come home. So, since I need some time with my baby, you think you could help pray for those orders? Maybe if we all pray and wish really, really hard, it will come true. Just a thought...

Repurposing II

I'm no thief, and I don't particularly like other peoples trash, but I must admit to going through my neighbors trash for a real find. May I add that the neighbor was my parents, and I asked them first? They threw away this wooden rocking chair. They said they had no need for it...I took that baby home did a little light sanding then painted with leftover outdoor house paint. It has sat on my porch for quite some time. Almost new porch furniture: Cost $0.00 See I really do love the word FREE.  

You can read about two other repurposing projects here...

A Pocket full of Pasties

I went to visit my grandmother recently in California.  That one word alone ought to be revealing enough.  There are so many "Characters" in Cali, that this shouldn't have shocked me.  But still....I regress...

We took a family road trip to go visit my grandmother in her assisted living facility.  As there was quite the crowd, me, my kids, my parents and KT, we opted to do our visiting in the "Library" a public location with lots of seating.  A sweet old lady walked by using her walker.  Sweet is a real stretch of the word...She passed by checking us out.  Everyone there is curious about everyone else's business, due in fact, more than likely to boredom.  Sweet old lady came wheeling by again and walked right up to my husband and said,

"Are you wearing any underwear?"

You read that right!  I just busted out laughing, my poor little Ladybug started blushing and Miguel, he was just like, "Awkward".  KT wasn't wearing anything that would suggest otherwise.  She made small chit chat with my tolerant husband which I heard nothing of due to my laughter.  Grandma leaned over to ask me, "What did she say", because you know no one can hear in those places.  And when you talk to them, you have to say everything really loud

"Grandma, she asked if KT was wearing underwear!!!"

Of course, Grandma's response was "Oh Good Heavens!"

Little old woman wheeled herself off for 15 or 20 minutes to work the circuit, then I heard her say "Where is that young man!"  Here she comes again.  

"Have you ever been to a stripper?"

At this point, I lean over and tell Ladybug that she should probably plug her ears.  "Sweet" little old grandmother leans in trying to show off her saggy cleavage.  I left KT on his own with that one. No Joke, She proceeds to tell my husband how she used to be a stripper, how she made $500 off a guy once and how she would carry a pocket full of pasties.  She all but stopped short of asking him up to her room.  

So the next time you see a "sweet" little old lady, she could probably be a "Spicy" old washed up stripper, cougar, trying to get your husband to her room.    

Thanks for the laugh Virginia...

And in case you were wondering, here's me and my grandma post laugh, ie. sexual harassment

Game Day Psychosis

In order to relate to the men in our family,
we've got to walk the walk. 

And sometimes, you just gotta have it...
