Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard the expression, “honor amongst thieves”.

Sleep and other disturbances…

Lately I have been having some very odd experiences around the apartment. It started in earnest about a year ago. I would be sleeping and feel a poke on my side or hear my name but no one else was in the apartment. My dreams have gotten bizarre and occasionally I have been sleepwalking as I was informed I walked into kiddos room and began throwing pillows at them but I have no recollection. They have also heard their name and were also alone in the apartment.

I got worried about my mental health and sought some practical assistance. I spent months talking it out and they came to the conclusion it was all stressed related and if I did this or that it would help. It hasn’t and in fact it has gotten worse so I sought out less practical help. Two tarot readings and a seance later have all come to the same conclusion, I need to bless the apartment. They have suggested I reach out to a local priest, preferably a Jesuits. They have also suggested I get some sea salt soap(supposedly helps purify energy) and to also smudge the place.

When I was a kid I dabbled in things I shouldn’t have. I saw things that have led me to respectfully stay away from such things. I don’t necessarily believe anymore but just in case I keep my distance. Once things start happening I have no way to control it and I get frustrated and then move.

So I ask….do you believe in  a haunting ?

4. Share a quote you love.
5. Spring Cleaning! Share a before and after photo of a room you recently tackled.

I can’t say I remember too much about my childhood. I get bits and pieces from those that were there and pictures I find. Thank goodness for pictures, HA!! Below is a picture of my 8th grade graduation and I am the girl on the left end with the  black dress and white shoes. I do not remember taking this picture but it was clearly after graduation in my school’s auditorium. We were only allowed to wear white shoes but clearly not everyone complied. The hair? Well it was the 80’s, 1989 to be exact.I was not particularly close with the group but was with most of them from kindergarten. In 2009 we kind of had a reunion of sorts in our hometown. Those that lived close by and were curious enough showed up. It was an interesting night noticing what was the same about them and what had changed. After graduation my family and I had dinner at some restaurant that I can’t remember.

I do remember vividly a feeling of Free! Little did I know High School would be more of the same but on a more dangerous scale.
