They’re Here!

I just have to say something before I continue with this post.


I am a believer in the supernatural, the ‘Other Side’, the paranormal, and all the rest.  I am very open minded on others thoughts and feelings on the subject as well, provided those who are skeptics, be polite, non judgmental and respectful.


If you don’t believe, that’s fine.  Good.  I respect that and I ask that others do the same.


Here’s a small introduction to some of my experiences.


I have had visitors in the past come to hang out with me, moving things that hang from the ceiling, knocking down objects, flickering lights and making noise.  I have never had an issue with any of this either as I enjoy the company.


My experiences have also gone as far as seeing something hovering in front of my bedroom door and someone touching me.  I have had my hair played with, shoulder tapped and the odd poke to the arm or leg.  With all these events, the temperature in the room dropped, some more drastically than others.  I have also caught things floating past me through the corner of my eye, but they disappear just as quickly as they appear (my hubby & I saw it at the same time a few times).  I also catch scents of things that are not normal smells in my house.  For example, cigar/cigarette smoke, flowers and perfumes which are isolated to a small area that I either walk through or they travel past me as I sit.


There have been a few times that I was able to show a friend that I am in fact, NOT crazy by having them see the things be moved all on their own.  Needless to say, it freaked them out but they had a good time all the same.



Now for todays events…


Do you ever get the feeling that someone is standing behind you?


Lately, that has been my case.  I will be standing in the kitchen (as I was tonight) and have this feeling like someone is standing right behind me, turn around to find nothing.  I also get that feeling when I am sitting on the couch.  There is no way possible that someone could be standing behind me looking over my shoulder.


I don’t know if it’s my old age setting in, but I seem to be misplacing things that I KNOW I put in a particular spot.  A spot where the kids can’t reach it and hide on me.  Yet, these things continue to go missing and turn up somewhere else.


As I type this, I could sand a deck as my skin is covered with goosebumps from the cold air surrounding me.  Brrrrr.


I am interested in hearing other peoples stories, theories and experiences as I’m sure I’ll have more of my own.

Gone For 3

I’ll be away for a few days due to competing in the Tri Annual tournament for pool.  If we win this, we will be off to the Regionals and one step closer to Vegas!!!


Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Might As Well Face It, I’m Addicted To These

Ok, so apparently I can’t stop with these silly things. It all started with the coffee…almost as if it’s my kryptonite or something!  I am finding out some interesting things about myself that even I didn’t know!  


Who’d a thunk it?


Some of them I disagree with, others I agree with and the rest, well I wish were true!  However, I won’t be revealing which of these are true about me and which are not.  I like to keep people guessing.


Go for it.  Do a few quizzes.  You know you wanna!  Fight the urge to be all boring and grown up.



You Are Bettie Page


Girl next door with a wild streak

You’re a famous beauty – with unique look

And the people like you are cultish about it

You Have Your PhD in Men


You understand men almost better than anyone.

You accept that guys are very different, and you read signals well.

Work what you know about men, and your relationships will be blissful.


Your Seduction Style: The Natural


You don’t really try to seduce people… it just seems to happen.

Fun loving and free spirited, you bring out the inner child in people.

You are spontaneous, sincere, and unpretentious – a hard combo to find!

People drop their guard around you, and find themselves falling fast.

Your Psyche is Violet


You are spiritual, intuitive, and serene. 

People trust you to rescue them from bad situations, and you usually come through.

While you are quite enlightened, you find that your path is very lonely.


When you are too violet: you can’t connect to ordinary life or ordinary people


When you don’t have enough violet: you lack wisdom and can’t learn from the past

You Belong in Fall


Intelligent, introspective, and quite expressive at times…

You appreciate the changes in color, climate, and mood that fall brings

Whether you’re carving wacky pumpkins or taking long drives, autumn is a favorite time of year for you

Shock In Hollywood

Shocking news of the death of Heath Ledger rocked Hollywood today.  His family is now left to grieve his untimely passing.


My heart goes out to all of them.


He leaves behind his beautiful 2 year old daughter, Matilda, his family and friends.

I’m Gonna Kick My Own Ass!

Day One:


This Chubby Bunny is on a mission.  


My main objective is to lose weight, be fit for myself and my family and feel good about myself and what I’ve accomplished.


I am tired of being chunky fat and it’s about time I did something about it.  I want to be able to wear shorts and a tank top outside of my house instead of hiding behind a t-shirt and jeans in +30℃ weather.  Time to get my arse in gear.


My goal for the rest of this month is to walk half an hour to an hour everyday.  Come February, I am hoping my goal will escalate from walking to jogging and the time will also increase to at least an hour a day.


I would love to be in better shape so I can do the Pilates and Yoga that I have been wanting to get into.  I have all the equipment to do both of them, just not the body.


I hope I can accomplish my goals and lose the inches and weight that have been plaguing me since giving birth to my incredibly adorable monsters.
