Musings on My Mind Monday
I just made that up. Im hiding again, although its not really doing me any good. AND Im on a break. See, I dont smoke anymore so I take "blog breaks" at work when I can. Its healthier for me and I get to stay warm. Anyway, its a shame one must hide on ones break, but alas I must. It will only get worse because GICOE (Guy in Charge of Everything) is moving across THE HALL FROM ME. Oh, how will I ever escape. Im afraid simply shutting my door isnt enough. He knocks. and knocks again. AND because he is the guy ICOE, I have to answer. sigh. I liked it better when I was out of sight out of mind.
Speaking of minds..I may be losing mine. Seriously. Ive been HEARING things. Last night for instance, Im sitting down minding my own business trying to watch part of a movie (because thats all I have time for), and I hear:
"MOMMY, MOMMY". Ever so faintly, but I heard it. Because it was so faint, I listened again. I heard it again. It was faint, so I assume it is coming from downstairs where the boys recharge all night. It definitely wasnt my daughter, as her bedroom is just a few feet from where I was sitting, and her door was cracked open, and her summons of me would have been louder.
So, I get up and head down the stairs and on my way, I think I hear it again. I get to the bottom of the stairs and hesitate to make sure its my smallest boy, who it sounded like, and not by big one. I hear nothing. So I wait some more...nothing. I go into little guy's room and he is sound asleep, all angelic and stuff, not a hint of anything troubling going on there. After I kiss his little cheeks, I check N's room...same there...completely out, all is well.
I go back upstairs and check on my daughter. Same thing...no problem.
What the heck? I KNOW I heard it.....is it a ghost? Am I nuts?
Then that morning, Im laying in bed and I hear singing. It wakes me up....and Im not happy about it. Its like 6 am, and everyone knows that I dont do anything before 730, so there are RULES about mornings in my house. I yell something like; "sing quietly please". No response at all. Puzzled, I get out of bed....everyone is still asleep. I dunno..its a little creepy though.
