Sooooo Remember yesterday how I said we'd be cleaning etc all day and probably forever? Well, we did none of that today... Whoops. Instead, we headed up to one of my favorite places ever-
This place is full of many shops, food and beautiful scenery.
They have a wonderful new vintage shop that I couldn't get enough of! All the photos in the above collage are from that shop as well as this lovely minty type writer.
After a full day of shopping we headed to one of our favorite family restaurants for dinner and ice cream. (the best ice cream in the world I might add)
Oh, what's that? This is a boring post? Well, I'm sorry. Maybe this story will fix that for you...
So last night at 3 AM as I'm, well, sleeping- I was awoken by SCREAMING. Literally, SCREAMING! I shot out of bed and looked out the window... nothing was there... A few minutes pass and I hear my neighbor's truck roar to life and pull away. I lay there, mind racing, thinking I could never fall asleep after something like that... Well, I did. I woke thinking about what had happened and thought about what it could have been throughout the day.
This evening my neighbor (who owns the truck that drove away. For the sake of the story we'll call him- bob) came over to drop off my sister's dog who had run off to chase other dogs and cars (smart). I was anxious to find out what he knew about that blood curdling scream. So he tells me that he had been getting ready to head to work (military) when he heard the screams, he thought it was his sister so he grabs his gun. But, it was coming from outside so he headed out the door to see a girl in her pj's running down the street screaming "Help me! Someone's trying to kill me!". So he's ready to fight- but, there's no one there. The girl had run down the street and into another neighbor's bushes. He waited a few minutes and when no one showed up, he grabbed his gear and put it in his truck since he was late to work and he figured it was just some prank. As he is driving away she darts out in front of his truck and crosses the street into another neighbors yard. He pulls up, rolls down the window and asks "Are you ok?" She doesn't answer and just runs around their wrap around porch. He drives away, but first calls 911.
That was all Bob knew to the story, but we were so interested to find out what had happened. So we (Bob, my sister, and I) headed down the street to where she'd hid to find out. When they weren't home we tried their next door neighbor. There we learned the rest of the story.
This neighbors daughter had woke to the the screaming also. She went and woke her mom and together they watched from her window. They could hear the girl moaning and giggling in the bushes. Just then, Bob drove up and the girl darted in front of his truck(you heard this part). They watched as she ran to their next door neighbor's porch and just as they were about to call the cops- they showed up.
The next morning she called the owner who's house the girl had ran to, to make sure everything was ok. I guess the girl had ran inside the house (it was unlocked for their son who works a night shift) screaming "Help me! Someone's trying to kill me!", turning on lights, and burst into the master bedroom. The cops came in and found out where she lived. They headed to her house and found no one there, no trace of drugs, nothing. Come to find out, she had taken an a sleeping pill that makes people do crazy things... The paramedics took her to the hospital to spend the night, and as far as I know she is ok.
I am NEVER taking that pill...
(I'm afraid to mention which kind it was in case someone out there likes it. If you aren't sure which one I'm talking about you can ask in the comments and I'll let you know.)
