Psycho Cats With No Family Around....

So I'm enjoying my night of vacation. A friend called and wanted to take me out for supper. We had a really good time. Cracker Barrel breakfast rocks! She took Charlotte and I back home. It was close to bedtime so I checked all the doors and made sure everything is locked up tight. Charlotte fell asleep and I was on my way to slumber land when I hear something. Now usually I'm ok with the dark. Even when Jeff works late it doesn't bother me but when I know I"m here for the whole night, by myself.... well, I can get antsy. So I hear the noise again. It sounds like someone is turning the front door knob. So I open my bedroom door (which is closed so the cats won't smother us with love) and inch out into the hall. I hear the noise again. I flip the light on to the porch. Look outside. Nothing. It finally dawns on me it is probably one of our crazy cats. Meowing doesn't get much attention with 4 kids running in the house so to let us know they are ready to come in they jump up to our door knob and try to turn it. I opened the door and Tiger struts in ready to bed down for the night. Crazy cat... but smart.

    That would freak me out! As much as I'd love some time to myself here, I just don't sleep well if Dave's not here at night.

    I hate, hate, hate the nights when my husband is out of town. I'm a strong, independent, grown woman, mother of three and very capable...who sleeps with the lights on when I'm alone. So sad. There is no way I could have opened that door - you're a braver woman than I!

    I just knew there was a hooked man ready to pounce. I hate that I get that way. I'm good all the way until bedtime. LOL. Tis sad.
