Day 26: Night. Matthew's away on a course and I've checked=
I am not a fearful person. I laugh in the face of danger. HAHAHAHAHA! With extra exclamation points! !!!!! PEW! PEW! PEW!

And yet.

Every once in awhile, Matthew has to go out of town for work conferences. I check the locks approximately 100 times, maybe more, and when one of the locks doesn’t work like it should, I call him in a fit of tears. Because how can I not lock against ALL THE THINGS? Chesterfields are pushed against doors, both inside and outside. And then I send the call out to my neighbours via FB (Hi Lisa!)

I try to be so brave. The kids think that I have it under control, but I don’t. Not even a little bit.

Let’s keep this our little secret, ‘mkay?

Is there anything that freaks you out? Please tell me that I’m not alone (as I barricade myself in my bedroom with my three babies).

    When Seth works all nighters I have to barricade myself in my room and sleep with ALL the lights on. Such a scaredy cat. I blame being a latch key kid at too early an age.

    You’re definitely NOT alone! I live in the basement suite of a house, and whenever my landlords go away for any period of time, whether it be for one night or more, I always get creeped out and never sleep well. I’ll hear strange noises upstairs and be paranoid that someone’s broken in or whatever. On those nights I’ll often “sleep” for part of the night on the couch in my living room, instead of in my bedroom with the door closed. I’ll keep the phone right by me, as well as a heavy flashlight that can be doubled as a potential weapon. Haha. I totally understand and sympathize with your fears. I have them too.

    Oh girl, sorry you’re scared … but you’ll be fine. I promise!
    We all have things we’re scared of, you are definitely not alone.

    me TOO.
    The Mr. does extensive travel, though- so I guess i’ve gotten pretty used to it. but yes. the funny thing is: i’m afraid of being afraid.
    i’m more afraid of a noise i might hear b/c that will instill a bout of fear, rather than WHAT made the noise.

    so i just try not to think about it at all.

    oh, and, as stupid as it sounds- i’m kinda afraid of monsters.
    i mean, i KNOW, but….. WHAT IF?
    i hate when he travels!
    stay strong…..

    Just lift up with your mind and hearts the love of God, because no one can defeat if your are inspired with these thing….

    We were just talking about this the other night. We have an alarm system in this house and I have it set almost all the time. When the kids and I are home alone during the day it’s set to stay (to keep things out but also to keep kids in), and regardless of Corey’s presence it’s set at night. We didn’t have one before and I didn’t really worry but now that we have one I can’t imagine it not being here. Except for those times I punch the code in wrong and send sirens through the neighbourhood…

    Oh, I am always, always scared! Especially since watching Paranormal Activity. I can’t handle going being alone on the main floor with the lights turned off, I cannot go to the basement after like, 6 p.m., alone, I have to sleep with some lights on… basically, I’m a big ole’ chicken. I’m scared of everything!

    I am the biggest wimp when it comes to stuff like this. I refuse to live lower than the third floor of a highrise because I’m afraid of intruders. Seriously. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to live in a house.

    Aw. Hope he comes back soon so you don’t have to be alone.

    Working alone in creepy dark places with random creepy sounds late at night cured me of that long ago.

    Living in the sticks I can completely understand checking and double checking the doors AND the windows and anything else. And that’s with having a dog who barks when the airs moves in the wrong direction. I think part of it comes from being a city girl for most of my life. :S

    I can definitely relate to this post…Anyway, don’t worry because you are not alone…

  13. Devhonn February 28, 2012 12:31 am edit

    It is really very lonely to be alone…I have experienced it, and I was afraid too…

  14. Cathy35 February 28, 2012 1:51 am edit

    You are not alone.. We have the same fear.. How can’t I be? There are so many bad things that can happen with an unlock door.. It can freaks me out too if I am on your situation..Thanks for sharing your experience!

    Fear is always there in our side, but never let this be overcome with your self… I am a person which consider different factors and try to overcome my fear, there’s nothing wrong in trying…

  16. Alexandra February 29, 2012 4:02 am edit

    All of us have fears and sometimes, it depends on how we can handle and conquer it…Just be brave and keep in mind everything will be fine…
