A Feeling of Foreboding

I don't know if it's the coming month of ghoulish October or the current economic crisis or what, but ever since yesterday I've had this spooked feeling, like something bad is going to happen. It's been unsettling and it's driving me a little crazy. Have you ever had that intuitive feeling that something just isn't right, like something bad is going to happen? That's how I've been feeling, and I'm SPOOKED because of it!

A couple of weird things set this in motion:
1. An anonymous weirdo commented on a friend's blog yesterday and left comments that make you remember that there are some angry, strange people out there. That creeped me out a little.

2. Yesterday evening all of a sudden the power went out in our family room and garage. We couldn't figure out why. So the room has been dark and silent, which has been weird, unusual, and kind of depressing. No TV, no music, nothing. (Fortunately tonight we got it fixed!)

3. Last night while I was downstairs at the computer I had a strange, subtle feeling that I was being watched or under surveillance or something. I had Peter come downstairs and stick around nearby so that I'd feel better.

4. This was weird! I was laying in bed last night, and my closet doors suddenly opened with a creak all by themselves. Peter got up to see if it was the cat, but it wasn't. I couldn't get to sleep for like an hour after that! Could my house be haunted? The former owner died unexpectedly in the front yard a few years ago.

5. There was overcast weather today, which normally I don't mind, but today it just contributed to that scary foreboding feeling I was having.

6. My car was beeping today while I was driving it and I couldn't figure out why. My seat belt was on, so it wasn't that. It was as if the car was trying to tell me, "Look out! Danger! Look out!" It creeped me out.

7. My dog and two cats have been acting a little differently, especially the cats.

It just feels like things have been knocked off their regular angle a few degrees. I hate this feeling! So tonight I found out something interesting: my sister's house up in Massachusetts caught on fire this morning, and the whole house could have burnt down if my sister hadn't come home at the random unusual time that she did. Could my foreboding feeling have been about that? Or was it the Dow's record fall today because Congress didn't pass the bailout plan, possibly putting this country on the path to a major depression? Or both, or something still to be determined? I guess time will tell. If I die in the next week, you'll know that I foretold it.

Don't say that!! You're not going to die!!

I've been feeling completely uneasy about what's going on with our economy and it's only heightened in the last couple of weeks. I called Russ today after I found out the bailout didn't pass and I was in a panic. He calmed me down, but I'm still feeling that same feeling you're talking about.

Except my house isn't haunted like yours. Well, that isn't exactly true, but my ghost is much nicer! :-)

So weird about your sister's house. Are they ok?

Dolly said...

I'm a little uneasy myself these days, so I've been reading my scriptures and listening to LDS music a little more than usual. Hope all is well with your sister...Read "meanest-momblog" (link on my blog) and have a good laugh! :)

Laura said...

OK, you are freaking me out a bit! Be careful the next couple days---

buffyvandabailey said...

It is a stressful time. Great time for General Conference!

Katie said...

I'm totally fine, and you are totally freaking out :-)

I'll tell you what your sense of forboding is about - the Palin/Biden debate on Thursday! LOL.

Donna said...

Alyson-Yes, they're okay. They couldn't sleep in their house last night, and a bunch of things on the second floor (where the fire started) are ruined from the smoke, ash, and water from the hoses, but it could have been much, much worse.

Thanks Dolly, I will do that!

Laura, I will be especially careful. I don't want to tempt fate, if it's even possible to do that!

Buffy, I was thinking that too, that it's a great time for Conference. I really can't wait for it. I always like Conference, but I'm especially eager for it this time. I know that I and a lot of others will feel much better this weekend.

You might be right about the debate, Katie!!

Whitney R said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! You have a cute little family. :)

I bet your uncomfortable feeling was about your sisters home. And all the other things are just making you on edge. I can understand that. Just be safe!!

Peter said...

I can address several of those:

1) People are just wierd, especially around political elections when they get too wrapped up in the rhetoric & distortions of fact.

2) There was a short in the garage. Once we found the short, it was easy to restore power.

4) I swear I left the closets opened when I came in earlier. I was awake and thought I heard something outside of our room (where our cats were), not in it.

6) You had some heavier items on the passenger seat which the computer interpreted as a passenger who was not riding with his seatbelt on. Buckle in those books next time!

7) Christy is just pain wierd :)

And don't die...I wouldn't like that at all.

Katie said...

Yes, don't die, Donna :-) What a terrible thing for you to be joking about!!

Donna said...

I wasn't really even joking about the possibility of dying, that's how uneasy I was feeling on Monday. It was so weird. I'm feeling better now though. Still a little off kilter, but the feeling of foreboding has lessened.

Peter, I'm not going to let you debunk the closet doors incident. I was awake too, and I heard the closet door hinge creak open on its own!

Katie said...

Hmmm... I wonder if this has anything to do with your watching Ghost Hunters?

Donna said...

Oh Katie, you know me too well!
