Random Bizarre-ness

So, two nights ago, after discovering that we are behind on some bills (long story, let's just say that my husband USED to pay the bills *sigh*), I opened a piece of mail that I almost threw out. That little voice said, "No, open it... really."

The unopened piece of mail and I stared each other down for a few minutes. Finally I gave in and opened it, and for my efforts I earned a refund check of 400.00 from our property tax escrow account.

And a paper cut, but it was totally worth it.

That night, obviously distressed that 400.00 wouldn't even touch the bills that we have, I had a dream that night that we won over a million dollars, and I found out by opening a piece of mail.

Now, to sound completely weird let me just say that I have had dreams that have come real, and parts of dreams that have come true. Some of the dreams are good, and some are bad,a nd some are just wishful thinking. I'm playing the lottery just in case.wink

In other "The circus that is me" news, I had more freaky dreams last night. I don't know what this means, and I don't know if I want to know... I dreamed that Glen Close was having a sing-off with an older actress, who's name fails me.

The really weird part is that I can remember waking up briefly to turn over and thinking, "Glen could take that old broad, in more ways than one. Especially Fatal Attraction Glen."eek What the...? No more BLT's for dinner for me. Something got my brain going wonky... maybe it was the adhesive from all of those bills I opened?

This morning I heard a beeping sound. It was driving us all nuts. I had my husband look in the basement to check the water softener and some alarm. I checked around to find the source of the weird electronic sound, and thought I heard it come from a lap top that my husband had already packed and taped up in a box and told John after he came up from searching the basement for 10 minutes.

After John completely unpacked and unwrapped the lap top, the sound chimed again near the spot the laptop box had been originally. Then I realized my cell phone was right there in that spot.

OOPS!

"I'm gonna kill you, lady, " John said shaking his head and laughing.

I guess being so anal retentive (about charging your cell phone that you don't even recognize your own phone's recharge alarm) does have it's down side.

Well, a downside for the husband, anyway.

The downside to the downside? The next time something beeps he's going to send me on the wild goose chase.

Hah! Avery's comment cracked me up! I love it!

I too have very strange dreams and it's just unreal sometimes, it is SO hilarious sometimes!!

That beeping story is so funny, lately our stupid smoke detector goes off when we make pizza in the oven, must be something stuck on, scares the crap out of us every time!

Me and my sis have the same kind of dreams. Maybe it has something to do with our childhoods that causes us to be more perceptive.

I read your last post (very funny) and your comments (also funny). I got the same "I don't mean to spam" comment. I don't know why I'm so hard to get a hold of because my email is in my profile. What a jerk!

Ug bills...and back bills are even worse! Congrats on opening a $400 surprise though that's always welcome even with a paper cut! Love the new snowman theme too. :)

Hugs,

I love the Snowmen family!! As for bills, I saw your comment on my post and had to come by. I had a dream the other night that Chris and I went to Best Buy to buy a videogame, and I borrowed a calculator from the cashier to balance our checkbook first, and figured out we were completely overdrawn and had no money! How's that for stressed out over bills? lol

I need to read this previous post you mentioned.

Aaand, I'm back-I made the mistake of swallowing a mouthful of coffee as I was reading that previous post, and when I read "Our Praise Jesus Cheeses" I literally almost choked on the coffee in my mouth! Bwahahahahaha!

I also got that same comment from the furniture guy, which I ignored.

I hear something humming at night... and I have yet to track down the culprit. The furnace? The fridge?... why is it so difficult.
