Father-in-law to the RESCUE!!!

Last night I had one of those moments, you know the kind of moment when you wish your dad was just down the hall. Luckily my father-in-law George just lives a few blocks away.

Karson stayed up in Provo last night because of work and school. That meant that I was home alone. I am a spook as it is but it doesn't help that our house is over a hundred years old and has been infested with mice (yes, disgusting I know) the past few days. I was doing okay until it came time to sleep. I just told myself to fall asleep fast. Sometime around 2 I woke up to a big noise. The kind of noise that scares the you know what right out of you. I couldn't move nor did I want to until I heard it again. I made a quick move and grabbed my phone and called my sleeping husband. I tried to explain to him what was going on inbetween sobs. I think he could tell I was pretty dang scared and hurried and called his dad to come and check on me. In the mean time I grab my lamp and tried in an attempt to make myself hidden (as if I possibly thought that laying as flat as I could would make me invisable!) under a blanket. I think George was at my house in 30 seconds time.

In my mind it was some scary, probably up to no good fella or a big hairy creature with huge teeth. Come to find out... it was just the WIND! How pathetic am I! Needless to say I ended up sleeping on my in-laws couch last night!

Who gets up at 2 in the morning to chase away wind!?! (Thanks George!) It just made me realize how greatful I am for our families. I know that if anything was to happen to us, our families would be there in no time. It doesn't matter if its a call for help to fix a tire or a call to chase away the elements, they are always there for us! We are so lucky and so blessed.

Hey, I'm impressed you made it to 2:00am. I've got to admit it was a pretty creepy night. Come and sleep at our house whenever Karson isn't home, but next time sleep in a bed!

Oh poor Linzy. I hate it when Jake isn't here too. I would be freaked out too.
