Weird night…

So last night we had a strange night at our house. It all started when I went to clean the kitchen after dinner. Our indicator light on the stove (indicating that a burner is on) has been flickering lately. When it should be on, sometimes its off….or when it should be off, its flickering on. I didn’t think much about it as the stove is old. Last night, I sprayed cleaner on the stovetop and was wiping it down…when BOOM! The light literally blew up! I am thinking it had a short in it and some of the cleaning liquid overheated and blew it up. It blew up on my arm…and I have a small burn on my arm…but its not bad and I’m fine.
That wasn’t the weirded thing, though.
We went to sleep, and after I went to sleep and before Tyler fell asleep, Tyler woke me up. He wasn’t trying to…but I sensed him get out of bed and walk all around…then I realized he had turned on several lights. This was quite unusual, so I called for him, and he was downstairs. He had heard what he swears was someone trying to come in our door, like fidgeting with the doorknob, so he went to inspect. While he was down there, he heard a loud thud against the door! But unfortunately, we don’t have a peephole in our door or a window that we can look out at the front, and Tyler was smart enough not to open the door to whatever was outside….so we’ll never know what it was. There are several neighborhood dogs, cats, and I’ve seen some possums….or it could have been the bushes next to our door rustling and the thud could have been our neighbors wooden Christmas decorations falling down in the wind. But we will never know.
Those two things made for a really strange night at our house….but thankfully, we are ok and tonight seems to be going much smoother.
On another note, I dropped off our angel tree gift today. We got an angel off the angel tree for a 5 year old boy named David. We bought David a bike, some toys, and an outfit and some shoes. If there are still angels to be claimed in your area, go get one. Its so fun to buy gifts for someone…and these gifts are for people who really could use some love and blessings. Spread the Christmas cheer!
