My “Dream” Home, But Not Really

I haven’t posted in the “weirdness” category in a long time and I have weird dreams all of the time. I seems to have most of my dreams in the morning and this morning’s one was awesome! It started because I got a call from my daughter, last night, from the college outside of Tampa,Florida.
I dreamed I was still in college there-because I did go to college there for a year-and there was an old, antebellum home on the campus. Someone told me that whoever could clean out the house could have it. HAVE IT. Doesn’t that remind you of some of the fairy tales, (more…)

October Fact A Day

Alfred Hitchcock’s movie, “Psycho” is known for causing a fear of taking showers: all of a sudden being aware of a vulnerability during a shower, and some people opted to take baths instead.

October Fact A Day

Via my dad and mom, Wes and Sandra Scarborough :
Stephen King is VERY afraid of bats. When one makes it into their house in Maine, he cowers and starts shaking and his wife has to get rid of it.

Jack the Ripper Fact-Fridays

“…She had on several occasions asked me to read about the murders. She seemed afraid of someone, but she did not express fear of any particular individual except when she rowed with me, but we always came to terms quickly.”
Statement made by Joseph Barnett at the inquest of Mary Kelly after her murder. He had a relationship with her and lived with her until a few days before she was murdered.
Quote taken from “Prisoner 1167: The Madman Who Was Jack The Ripper”, written by James Tully

Fewer Words Thursdays-Serenity

Today’s prompt for “Fewer Words Thursday” is Serenity. Please join Andrea and I on our quest, once again to write a post positively and in few words.
I thought it was odd that today’s prompt was on serenity because last night, I asked a couple of people to pray for me because of a therapist appointment I had today. It was my first appointment and I was really nervous about it. I have a traumatic memory from my childhood that is trying to come through and was afraid he would unlock it today but it was a “getting info.” kind of appt. today. I prayed last night and was not nearly as scared today. I sort of felt a serenity and that I could deal with it. I told God last night that if anyone could help me, it would be Him. I believed and He did help me.
I can’t describe how thankful I am. It brings me a little closer to understanding His love for me!

Fewer Words Thursday-Too Scary

Hello, kiddies!  It is Thursday and time for the FWT prompt.  If you would like to join us, please do.  Just click on Andrea’s beautiful picture and add it to your post and send it to her comments box.
This week, the prompt is: What is too scary to write about?
Well, I have several things i am afraid of.  My whole life is defined by fear-I have lived in fear for a long time.  In my house, I learned to fear, fear making a mistake-those were bad and not easily forgivable.  I fear doing something wrong or making someone mad.  I hate it when people get mad at me.  I feel terrified they are going to leave me.  My biggest fear is being abandoned and when someone is mad at me, I feel like they think I am the worst person in the world and will leave me.  I even hate it when strangers get mad at me.  I’m not sure why,  Maybe one day I’ll figure it out.

Let My Words Be Few…

To Ride or Not to Ride

Holly Green
Good morning from Walt Disney World!
We are on Spring Break with our kids and are taking them to Disney World for the first time! Steph actually went with the band a few years ago but it is our first time as a family. I haven’t been since 1990.
We just rode Pirates of the Carribean boat ride that was really cool and dark. There was a little drop but it wasn’t too bad for me. I hate roller coasters!
We are currently in line for Splash Mountain and Steph is telling me that it won’t scare me. I really hesitate to ride this ride. What do you think?

Rode it a little while ago. Really wish I didn’t but now I know and so do my kids. I was brave through it, though.

Anyway, we had lunch at the Tortuga restaurant-yummy nachos. And then, we had fudge! Oh man!
We saw a celebration parade so we could “celebrate the dream inside of you”. We are now in line for the haunted mansion, which Steph assures me is just straight and just things jumping out at you. Awesome!
