haze

So the last couple of days I have been sick. I can't accomplish anything because my head is in an allergy induced haze. My eyes are itchy and my nose is itchy ahhhh. On top of that I have a little cold.

I also haven't posted because Cortney has been out of town. I missed him so much. I am so crazy, that I didn't want to post that he was out of town because what if, some psycho read my blog and came and killed us all, because he knew Cortney wasn't here to protect me (sorry that was a long run on sentence). I know, I am crazy. I have been a scaredy cat my whole life. I hate being home alone. I wondered why I am always so scared, but then Cali and I watched a rerun of 90210 a couple of days ago...the one where a creepy guy breaks into Donna's apartment and David has to save her. Well that is why I am scared. On tuesday night Oli came into my room and said he couldn't sleep because the computer was on in the front room. So that freaked me out because the computer comes on if you move the mouse or something. So he moved into my room (Cortney was gone why not...I love a kid in my bed when Cortney isn't there). I then of course had to check the house for intruders...otherwise I wasn't going to be able to sleep the whole night. So I get up my hair is a crazy mess...I go and get a golf club...and I hold it up...ready to strike if necessary. I went from room to room...I didn't find anyone, obviously. I knew no one was there but it still scared me. The whole time I was thinking of Donna from 90210. I was pretty freaked out. So then I locked Oli and I into my room (sorry Rob) and slept with the golf club next to me and my cell phone ready to call someone.

So the golf course owner took Cortney (plus the super Brian, the pro shop guys and I think a couple of guys from Orem Parks and Rec to San Clemente for a couple of days. They golfed and golfed and also drove down to Mexico and golfed a course there.
This is at one of the golf courses.
Another at the golf course. Cortney LOVES the ocean.
This is the house they stayed in. It was right on the beach. Cortney slept outside because he wanted to be close to the ocean.
All of the people that went.

I don't know more about the pictures because Cortney only got home last night around 1 in the morning. I am SOOOOOOO glad to have him back. Yeah. Now I just have to get through his hunting week later this month. sigh...

I know how you feel. I freak out like that even during the day. Like a few minutes ago when I walked past our guest bathroom and thought, "i didn't turn that on. and what if i walk by in a few minutes and someone had turned it off again!" maybe it runs in the family.

you crack me up. i am usually fine with being alone but sometimes i get the creepy feeling that something is wrong. plus my room has a huge sliding glass door to the backyard in it which sometimes feels a major entrance zone for am intruder. wouldn't that be freaky?

Ok, that is funny. I understand being scared...but 90210? Just kidding. Thanks for the words of encouragement. We are trying that with Marlee right now this is day #4 and you're right, it is stressful. She seems to be doing a LITTLE better every time though. Hopefully it won't be much longer. Thanks for the advice.

i totally remember that 90210. creepy. i used to be freaked out when i was alone too, but when i became ALONE alone i stopped being so wimpy. it was like i wasn't dependent on someone to keep me safe so i just kept myself safe.

cortney will be gone later this week? so that will be a good time for me to come steal all your expensive things?

This made me laugh...I can relate. I can't watch scary shows because I immediately think whatever I watched will happen to me, and then when I do go to sleep I usually have nightmares. Of course, when Mike goes out of town, I tell no one...just in case. I also like to sleep with a knife next to the bed. Man, I am sounding really paranoid. Hahahaha.

Remind me to never sneak up on you girls in the middle of the night. (I don't know I would do that anyway?)

I'm with ya. Jon is gone all the time and some nights I get myself all worked up with every crazy scenario I can think of and how I would handle it (if someone came in to my room how would I get away and save the baby?) It gets pretty terrifying. Why can't husbands just stay home? :)

Kimmy said...

Yes, I too remember that 90210 episode. (What a great show, by the way!) I get so scared at night even when Aaron is home. My imagination goes crazy. Elsie's room is upstairs and we are downstairs, so at night I get freaked out when I have to go check on her. You'd think by now I'd be over it, but I'm not.

lindsay gets freaked out like that too, except she does it when she's taking a shower and I walk into the bathroom to get something. Seriously? It's like 7am and you know I'm home. freakshow.

Ashley you are so cute!! I'm glad nothing scary DID happen and everything's alright!! ;)

You're whole ditching Rob cracked me up! I'm still laughing. We got this dumb motion sensor pig from my dad, as a toy for Carter, and the other day we came in, and the pig was going off, which freaked me out and made me think someone else was in the house. Of course there wasn't. But I hear you. I already have the scenario of what I would do and grab should such an occasion come.

Sorry you haven't been feeling well. I get scared at night too. I don't like being by myself. Jared and Carson will be out of town soon and I'll probably get freaked out every night.
