For some reason, I’m always scared someone is in my house or out to get me.  All the time.  And, it’s getting progressively worse.  Whenever I hear a noise in the house, I close my eyes and ask T.J. what it was.  It’s always just our neighbors, or the dishwasher, but for some reason, it won’t let up.

(Sidebar: I literally JUST heard screams outside! What the heck!?)

Anyway, I’m not sure when this started.  Years ago, though.  Sometimes when I was little and I was practicing the piano, I thought I saw ghosts out of the corner of my eye at the end of our hallway passing between the rooms. When I turned to look though, they weren’t there.  But, I still would freak myself out.

Also, I’m scared when I go out that creepy men will kidnap and R me. Whenever I see one in a parking lot, I pull out my keys so I’m ready to jab them if they try. I used to carry pepper spray on my key chain, but I lost it about a year ago.

I can’t watch ANY scary movies, I still picture the girl in the ring coming out of my TV and the little girl in The Sixth Sense under my bed.

Lastly, I always think T.J. is going to try to scare me.  I think he’s going to pop out at me, or sneak in when he comes home.  He never does, he never has, but still, my crazy mind tells me he will. (Probably because I had roommates AND a father who would do that to me!)

So because of this horror that I have created for myself, I make sure the doors are always locked at home, even when I’m inside.

But tonight, I came home and the back door was unlocked.  Bad news bears. And now that I’m thinking about it, what if a rapist is reading this right now and sees that my husband doesn’t lock the doors?  Well, let me tell you that it was just this once!!! And be warned it will never happen again, because I gave T.J. a nice little talk about how we ALWAYS lock the doors in our house, and as soon as we aren’t in debt, we will have a security system.

Well, to end the story, I made T.J. go around the different rooms to search for boogeymen and/or intruders.

P.S. Looking up the spelling of boogeymen on google didn’t help the situation.  Lots of terrible pictures came up.
