Thursday Thoughts

The house has been critter free since last week's terror. We had a hard time actually getting in touch with someone to come check the house for us, and when we finally did, the weather was and still is rainy, so we have to wait for a sunny, dry day. Hopefully next week. Since an "expert" hasn't checked things out, I'm pretty jumpy. I'm "tip-toeing" around and peering around corners and into rooms, looking for any home invaders. My brain understands the logic and reason behind SP's belief that it was likely an isolated event. But fear seems to be getting the best of me. I'm not happy about that. I'm actually embarrassed & frustrated. I don't like being so pathetic & weak. I thought I'd calmed down from the event, but earlier this week I jumped and shrieked at a squiggly brown thread on the floor and every time SP goes to work, I listen for how long the garage door is open and then spend the day wondering how long it takes for something to crawl in. One day I couldn't remember hearing the garage door close, so I went into the unheated, super cold sunroom to look & see if it was shut. It was. I've had some dreams about more of them coming inside and I wake up gasping. I know SP checked things out as best he could and blew all the leaves away from the house and says he sees no possible entry points, but...

Yes. I'm losing it a bit.

What We're Eating:

  • Leftovers from Max's Allegheny Tavern
  • Italian Helper
  • Dessert: Madeleines

What We're Watching:

  • I watched Megan Leavey and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. ML was good. TBOEM was excellent. If you haven't seen it, you should.
  • We're behind on our TV shows. The DVR is filling up.
  • The Americans is back! Last night's first episode of the final season was excellent. So excited to see how it all plays out.
  • The Alienist ended and it was a satisfactory ending. Kind of wrapped up nice & neat, but not too nice & neat.

What I'm Reading:

  • I read The Fire Pit from Chris Ould. It's the third in a series. I've really enjoyed this trilogy and I liked how Jan Reyna's story wrapped up. 
  • I'm trying to tackle the magazine pile, which grew a lot last weekend when MIL gave us some magazines to read. I had to split the pile in two because one pile kept toppling over.
