So, I know alot of you have picked up that DH works nights. 3-4 nights a wk, I am home alone with DS. I have an alarm system that I turn on EVERY night. If DH comes home from work early, he has to call or text me before he can come in so I can turn it off. Tonight, I was woke up around 1:30-1:45 by a knock on my door. I had no porch lights on, just me and DS. I jump up and look at my phone to make sure I hadn't slept through the call or something. No missed calls or texts. Call DH and guess what...he's still at work. So, there's some random person knocking on my door in the wee hours of the morning and I have no lights on outside. DH called his dad and asked him to come see who it was (he lives 5 min away) and called me back. Stayed on the phone with me the whole time. In the process, I load the pistol and pray that I don't have to use it. There is a car at the end of my driveway with lights on so they weren't trying to hide. So, FIL gets here and I go outside with the gun behind my back. It is a guy that had had a blow out with his tire and was changing it. Don't know if he knocked to let us know he was there or to see if we had a better jack or something. First off, I live in the south. Secondly, we are in the country. Lastly, who the hell is brave enough to knock on someone's door at this hour. You WILL get greeted with a gun in your face. If DH was here, that's exactly what would have happened. So, now it's 2:30 and I'm up. And now I'm contracting again. Nothing real regular right now. I'm sure it's just from hormones being crazy from the scare. Gonna eat a snack and try to go back to sleep. Crazy folks!
