save me!

last night i heard a noise. eep! when i was quietly slipping into bed, so as not to wake violet, i heard it. then i heard it again. it was a scratchy loud noise. i ran back out and got nathan. we went in and looked in the closet. nothing there. i took conor's camelback off the closet door, as i thought that may have been what the noise was. i went back to bed. i heard it again. i was getting freaked out. nathan put on his shoes and some gloves, in case he had to stomp something. i scooped violet up and took her to the other room. nathan went in for the kill. he crept in and saved me from the terrifying...paper. the fan was blowing a piece of paper and it was hitting a lamp. i feel like such a chick. the sad thing is, conor was working nights and if nathan hadn't been here, i guess i would have slept on the loveseat with violet. or maybe the car.

The car, huh? I somehow find that extra amusing. You're a brave girl, you would have taken care of it, I have faith in you.

All hail the brave paper slayer, Nathan!

I get freaked out by little things too, especially when it's just me and the bee babe at the house. I blame it on a vivid imagination.

i blame it on my fascination with true crime stories. it's a sickness.

Totally... My favorite episode of Law and Order SVU (although not "true" crime stories) was when Benson and Stabler found out what they thought was a pedophile was actually a dripping faucet

;) just teasing SV - I can't tell you how many times I have been home alone and ended up scaring the bejesus out of myself

that's too funy. i understand the "fright" of the unknown noises. when i was little, i shared a room w/ 2 of my brothers (we lived in a 3 bedroom house & there were 10 of us). it was christmas eve & i SWORE up & down that santa was on the roof, trying to get in. i laid in bed, probably turned white as a ghost & i listened intently. well, the noise....it wasn't santa....it was one of my brothers snoring. =(

funny with two "n's" that is.

sweetviolet said...

well that's pretty disappointing. poor tiny pagirly.

We have pets. Every noise we hear at night is blamed on them (because they are ususally responsible).

today I went to sign someones guestbook and there was this automated voice that said, "welcome, say whatever you want..." or something and I completely jumped out of my skin. I felt kind of silly.
