So, today was a beautiful day! We all went to my cousin's wedding, then out to lunch, and then I took the kids to the reception where I saw my friend Corie St.Clair! I haven't seen her in 10 years! She has 5 cute kids.
Well, I've gotten used to Glenn working nights. I've been able to sleep pretty well- until what just happened tonight! I was driving home from the reception when Charles started singing "Please, Take Me Out of the Ballgame". I was trying to explain the right lyrics are "take me out TO the ballgame". So we were singing all the way home.
When we got home, the kids and I got out of the car and were singing- not paying attention to our surroundings- when I looked over and saw a man kneeling up behind our bushes between a car watching us! I hurried the kids into the house and called my sister who told me to call the police. I checked if he was still there and he was but he was now crouching between the bushes and the car looking at the house. I called 911. They were there in like two minutes. But at first they drove right past, so I called Glenn in a panic. Finally they found him and questioned him. He's new to the half-way house across the street and is on his meds. The police said he's harmless- just went out for a walk and sat down for a while. This man is 6'3" with a blond fro. I think any woman would have called! Needless to say, I almost had a heart attack and I won't be sleeping any time soon! When I went out and talked to the officer I told him that my husband worked nights and I was alone with the kids a lot and he said he'd make the rounds on my street more frequently as a favor to Glenn. So, that'll make me feel safer- for now...
