In Between

I had an interesting waking up experience this morning. My alarm went off at 5:45 and I promptly hit snooze... and then again 10 minutes later. As I was nodding back off, I heard some clunking noises but quickly realized that it was the ice machine. Shortly after that, I heard someone wiggling my front door knob and yelling something I couldn't understand.

...or did I?

I was in that in between state of asleep and awake where you're not quite sure if what you just dreamt was a dream or reality. Well, in my state of in between, I COMPLETELY FROZE. I mean, I have a loaded shotgun under my bed, and I was paralyzed. All I could do was think about the gun and think about jumping up to turn on my bedroom light so whoever was at my door would know someone was home. And then I came to, and I did get up and turn on the light. Then I stood there listening and trying to decide if that was real or not. I didn't grab the gun, but I did walk out of the bedroom to make sure there was, in fact, no one at the door. Clear. Back door was clear too (that's the nice thing about having windows around the front door a big window doors on the back... easy to know whether or not someone is there). That didn't stop me from thinking that someone was going to break in while I was in the shower and realizing for the umpteenth time that I STILL do not know the panic code for our alarm (I really need to bust out the manual and find that) and that I should have brought the shot gun in the bathroom with me. Paranoia, I tell ya... it'll get the best of you! P.S. The ice maker noise was real. :)

On a completely unrelated note, I posted this as my facebook status yesterday.
"Kristin has 4 club seats in the GA section that she'll trade for 4 in the FL section. :)"
My best friend Jenn posted the following reply.
"I have 4 seats in my family room I'll trade for your club seats. They are convenient to both refreshments and the bathroom and include a very cute 6 month old. Let me know if you're interested."
I have the funniest friends. :)

That is so scary about the noise! I get paranoid like that sometimes too.
