i have been baffled all day long.
this morning after a short 4 hours of sleep- because i was up way too late working on a project for oldest daughter's teacher- middle daughter crawled into bed with me while the husband was in the shower. and she started chatting. because she wasn't tired anymore. and i glanced at the clock to see that i still had a good 45 minutes of possible sleep until i needed to wake oldest daughter for school. what a waste. of sleep, not mother/ daughter bonding time.
as she was snuggled up way too close (because everything is way too close that early in the morning) and pulling at my blanket and pillow, i heard a thud downstairs- similar to the sound i hear whenever our door leading to the garage shuts. just moments later our house alarm began blaring, having been triggered by something. the thud?
the husband was just stepping out of the shower and he sprinted downstairs, towel trailing behind, so that he could see what the problem might be.
i followed close behind, nervous, because i had no weapon in case i needed to beat up a bad guy- and i had recently clipped my fingernails. so, i had not even a fingernail weapon to use as a threat to any invader we might encounter. i was relying on the naked ninja and his mad fighting skills to fend off the enemy. because he has some. skills, not enemies.
i checked behind the bathroom door and in the pantry. which, i'm not gonna lie- kinda freaked me out. like, a lot. and the husband checked the garage and the living room. and we found nothing. but the garage door leading to the house was unlocked, which is unusual, because we make it a habit to lock all the doors before retiring for the night.
all i can think is that, as i was making my way to bed at 2 a.m. i forgot to lock the garage door. don't know how i could have forgotten, because i did set the alarm which is right by the door. and then all i can do to account for the thud i heard was that perhaps the wind blew the unlocked door open and sucked it shut. (it has happened before)
and then the husband left for work and i was reluctant to take a shower because anyone could have been hiding out in my house, just waiting. like in the toy box or something. but i finally did take a shower, and it turned out ok.
anyway, baffled. all day.
and kinda freaked out.
but not by the naked ninja.
i kinda liked that. not gonna lie.
