Freakiest day!

The freakiness started early this morning around 2am. I awoke to the sound of a large crash inside my house. I jumped out of bed & asked DH if he heard anything, no, of course. We looked into the living room, nothing. Ktbunch sound asleep, dog quiet.

I felt very shaky inside & scared. I started to think maybe I had been dreaming & laid back down while DH looked in the kitchen. I felt really shaky. I decided to go to the restroom since I was awake. As I tried to open the bathroom door, I gasped as I saw that the bathroom cabinet, that was formerly above the toilet was on the floor. Everything was strewn about, broken glass, toilet seat lid off it's hinges.

I guess it was the adrenaline rush, but I suddenly felt like I was going to vomit. I got the tingly throat & drooling mouth. I felt like a chicken w/ it's head cut off as I paced back & forth from the toilet to the tub, stepping over the chaos.

I didn't vomit. I tried to lay back down while H cleaned up the glass @ least. The sound of him sweeping was like ear splitting nails on a chalk-board. I had to cover my ears w/ a pillow but it didn't help much. My nerves felt raw.

I felt scared to death! We awoke to the phone ringing @ 7:50 this morning, good thing because we slept through the alarm & DH had to be in by 8:30a!

Then later this afternoon, I witnessed a giant, angry swarm of bees traveling through my front yard. I made sure all the windows were closed & brought the dog in. There was well over a 1000. I've never seen that many in one place like that before. And it wasn't a tight swarm like in the movies, it was wide, they covered both the 2 sides of my front yard.

I called the city & they said they do not chase bees! Well, duh! But I explained that the swarm had landed in a tree, by the curb. (public property) They said they would send someone out. I saw a city truck drive up to the curb a little while ago but then just drove away. The bees are still there though because I can see a few around the tree. My H is deathly allergic to I hope that wasn't the city truck that didn't do anything!

Finally, for about the 4th or 5th time.....we've missed the trash truck! They used to come to our home LAST, between 2-5pm. I always have the boys take it out when they wake up. I guess now the trash truck come to our home first, maybe somewhere between 7-8am! I was up early & I did not hear them & I had the boys set it out early too but it was too late! aarrgghhh!

  1. Gosh, kt, this sounds like a "Groundhog Day" type experience!!! How did your entire family sleep through the cabinet crashing? I have to say, our family might be's me who hears every bump and thump and everyone else snoozes peacefully!

    And the BEES???? That is just scary! Did they come get them? We have bee removal people around here...but we would have had to pay for them.

    And, grrr...I thought I forgot the trash today, but my wonderful dh saved the day and got it out in the knick of time.

    I hope tomorrow's more "normal"!! But then, WHAT'S that????
