Alien Abduction, or was it?
Around midnight HeRoos and I were in our room talking and BOOM, the brightest light I have ever seen shot right through our window. Both of us gasped and tried peeking out the window as our hearts were beating from fear. We started questioning what is was.
A helicopter with a search light? Unlikely, there was no sound. An airplane from the base? Unlikely, there is no way it could get that close to our house. A burglar? Possibly, there have been break-ins in the neighborhood lately. The Second Coming? Unlikely, but you never know. Aliens? Hmmm...
I grabbed a can of aerosol hairspray and my cell phone with 9-1 dialed. HeRoos had a steak knife. We checked on the kids and they were sleeping away but our adrenaline was going as we investigated the rest of the house. As a team, taking turns covering the other person's back, we opened every single door in the entire house. Then we dared each other to go in the back yard. There was no sign of an intruder or aliens.
The over-reacting should of stopped there but it didn't.
I insisted that the kids sleep in our room-I wanted them close to us. Bad Idea. We brought in a bassinet for ZoZo and she only stirred for a 4 am feeding. MB (Mr. Boy)on the other hand is not a cuddler nor does he enjoy sharing bed space. It was a rough night.
Fortunately, we all woke up alive and happy to be on Planet Earth.
HeRoos left for work and later sent a text: Check your e-mail
This is the news link he sent me
Who would have known falling rocks could cause such a scare?!
