Things that go BUMP in the night!

Ok, note to self... don't write a scary, suspenseful story late at night when my husband is away camping with the scouts!! Here's how my night went. I started out really tired since I did all kinds of running around, (in 110 degree weather) so Mike would be ready to go camping with the scouts at the lake tonight. I almost fell asleep at 7 tonight, but the kids were still awake so I forced myself to stay up. I watched part of the opening ceremonies of the olympics then sent the kids to bed. Then I sat in my bed with the lap top deciding to write a little while I wait for the kids to sleep. So what do I write? I'm working on my first book again, the YA fantasy novel, and I must tell you it is much better this time around. Which is probably my problem!! The story has a dark presence that is after the main character. So here I am trying to get into the story and figure out what happens next when I hear noises. Actually I distinctly heard dishes being moved. So I check Noah's room to see where the dog is. Well the dog is sound asleep on Noah's bed. I stand in the hallway for a bit and finally go back to my room when I don't hear anything else. Then sitting in my room, I hear noises in the back yard!! I'm really freaked now! So I go back to the hallway and inch my way towards the living room but I'm too much of a chicken to go any further!! I'm standing in front of Sammi's closed bedroom, which is empty tonight since she is spending the night at a friend's house. When suddenly I hear a thump from her room. Jumping as much as I can I run to my room and grab my cell phone to call my husband, but guess what? There's no cell service at the lake. So here I am, holed up in my room with nothing but my laptop to keep me company!! No one to call this late at night, and very much wishing I had bought a security system from my brother!! It's going to be a LONG night!!
P.S. I'm sure it's just my demented imagination and nothing's really out to get me, so don't worry... too much!

There is not much Mike can do from the lake. Do you have any neighbors you could have called? Or 911? I guess you made it through the night. Funny thing...here you are holed up in your room, and what do you do?...leave a final blog message. That is too funny.

Nikki - I'm up that late ..... working of course. You can call me next time you get skeered. I'm not at work on Fri/Sat nights though.

What a fearless mom you are, while you are locked in your room, your children were accessible to distract the intruder. Good plan, it would have left you plenty of time to escape!!!! :)
