what we did

1. Donut cloud
2. Shoe thief
3. Lily's birds
4. Busy bee
5. New Doctor Who is coming! New Doctor Who is coming! August 23.
6. We went to the circus. It was free and Noah actually sat through almost all of it.
7. Peach green tea lemonade or whatever it's called is back. And still delicious.
8. I took Lily and Noah to see the fireworks. And tried to take pictures while holding onto a toddler that wanted absolutely no part of watching fireworks.
9. I finally grew a sunflower. And then one windy day it snapped. Which just ended up being a good reason to bring it inside.

at least i'm not alone?

Occasionally "things" will happen in our house. I feel like I've mentioned this before, but as it happened more than 5 minutes ago.. I don't remember.

By "things" I mean, like.. mmm.. stuff without explanation. Not the wind, not the age of the house, not power fluctuations, not someone else in another part of the house, not.. whatever. You want to call it ghosts.. call it ghosts. Sometimes I say ghost, usually I will just refer to the "stuff" or the "things" that have happened.

These incidents without explanation never happen before "the incident" and then they never ever happen again. (Or so far anyway.)

We have a sliding door in the living room that shook back and forth one night. Then stopped. Then shook back and forth again. The stopped. Like someone was gently pushing it from the other side. I got up and looked on the other side. There was no one.. and no pets. Nothing.

An upper cabinet door in the kitchen swung open after I had walked into the room and stood at the counter doing something for about 30 seconds. I tried multiple times to recreate it, but I couldn't. It would either stay completely shut or if you unlatched it.. would immediately swing open. I wouldn't say it scared me.. but it was definitely the thing that has startled me the most because it was right next to my head.

The incident that left the creepiest feeling with me was when I thought I saw the last bit of my daughter (her shirt sleeve/arm) disappearing past a doorway. I called out to her and when she didn't answer I went to see where she was going. Nowhere it turned out, she hadn't even left her spot on the couch. And .. then there is the most recent thing.. which.. I'm not gonna lie.. I also really didn't care for.

In the room next to the living room, I often put on a low light when it starts to get dark out. The light in the hall that both rooms open out to also has a low light, but when you sit in the living room you can still see the room light shinning out because it's slightly tinted. Two nights ago the light shinning out went black for a second. Like something blocked out the bulb or passed by the doorway. Ya.. oh ya.

It wasn't even that I saw it out of the corner of my eye.. my head was almost fully turned in that direction. When I told someone else about it, their initial response was "why didn't you run and see what it was?"


So far I have taken it all pretty well, I think, but I am certainly not seeking anything out. I do not want to see a big black mass (or whatever) floating around my house.

what we did

1. The coolest thing we've ever found at a playground. And I don't even know what it is. Does that occur naturally or was it carved out like that?
2. Pep talk from my cough drop..
3. The Mother's Day breakfast that I made myself..
4. One of the best license plates I've seen..
5. Being followed by a mustachioed vehicle..
6. Took Lily out for "ice cream." It was actually frozen yogurt, but really what's the difference when you're 5 (and it's covered in sprinkles, strawberries and whipped cream)?
7. Over Memorial Day weekend I watched The Monuments Men.. It was really good (and PG-13). Netflix commemorated the holiday with their envelopes as well.
8. "Bravery is the capacity to perform properly even when scared half to death." My life..
9. And.. as if reading at a 1st or 2nd grade (at least) level wasn't enough.. now this kid of mine is expanding her math skills.. (multiplication!). I'm going to have to get her a pillow for kindergarten.

hello, June

My right eye has been twitching for about a week now. I don't know why it is, but I wish it would stop. I assume it twitches all day long, but I'm too busy and important  involving myself in motherhood/house/finance stuff to be constantly aware of whether or not it's still doing it. I just have to assume it is, because it doesn't seem like it would only twitch for certain parts of the day and not for others. But, honestly, who knows.

It may have something to do with allergies. Or it might not. I've been taking some OTC medicine for that. I thought I had a cold. Which then turned into a really terrible and lengthy cold. Which then I figured must be allergies, but I also think there was a sinus infection in there somewhere. (Because I couldn't bend forward more than 10 degrees without feeling quite a lot like my head would explode from the pressure.) Which was followed then by what was most definitely allergies. Probably. So I started taking an allergy medicine that has worked other years. I'm still taking it because I'm afraid not to. Because it's just barely June, you know?

Which.. I cannot believe we've found ourselves in again so soon. It will only be a few more weeks before I will be hating summer so much, as I always do. There will be heat.. and humidity- my hair will be sticking straight up, and it will be so awesome. (No, it will be not be.)
