Soooo, I'm sitting here house was totally quiet. NO noise at all, other than the new washing machine doing it's thing. Ben and daughter sleeping peacefully in bed behind closed doors, let the cat out. Tucker is in the kitchen with me sleeping soundly, and Maddie had the couch till I was ready to go to bed. Then it happened
the new washer made some sort of weird squeaky loud noise. Tucker jumped up and started having a fit (first time for thatl), it was so unexpected I jumped, and screamed a little, the cat went running, Maddie started barking and carrying on, then Ben joined in, scared the beejeezus out of the kid. For what seemed like 30 minutes (probably 15 seconds) it was total chaos. My heart is still pounding and even though I know what the noise was, everything was so unexpected it actually scared me. The cat was standing there in horror, back arched looking like a deer in head lights. I actually found myself scared of "nothing"! While I'm laughing at myself, I still can't help but being a little spooked...
So I've about got my heart rate back to normal.. Sometimes, being at home alone, and enjoying the peace and quiet isn't all it's cracked up to be!!
I hate when I scare myself, or the dogs bark at nothing ~ leaving me looking for "something"!!
