Mad Craze Coming to an End


Lately we are hearing more and more news about the coupon extremists. I recently watched a story on the news last week about this very topic and I was in awe when I saw how much these people are saving. Really, are you saving that much because it looks like you all have come to endure an obsessive compulsive behavior over saving and hording food. You all need therapy just to get yourselves back in control!

So in this story I saw garages, closets and rooms in houses full of food. I saw at least 50 cans of Hormel Chili, 12 tubes of toothpaste etc…So how might one household eat that much food before it expires? Have you thought about that question or are you going to open up a food pantry. In my opinion it would only make sense to give to people who can use it.

I think the real question here is why all of sudden the mad craze to save on food, yeah its pricey and it comes with bad economy but really are you saving that much money that you can afford to have that much food on hand? Sooner or later, it will waste away because of the expiration dates.

The most bothersome thing about this topic is that when I am at the grocery store with my list and I reach for an item that isn’t there because I know some extreme couponer cleared the shelf before I got there. Well lo and behold the grocery stores are on to you people because now they are limiting how much we can buy and now limiting how many coupons can be used in a single checkout.

I just have to say “Thanks” for screwing the system, because I rely on my coupons for savings and for you extremists who think nothing of the rest of the us we get limited because of you.

Last Summer’s Yard Sale


Would you believe me when I say there were children sitting in the back seat of this Jeep? There were 2 children in the back seat. This jeep was stuffed to the max and on the driver’s passenger side there was stuff coming out the window too! I have had a lot of yard sales but never in my life have I ever seen anything like this before.

These people were serious yard sale buyers!

My husband Doug, My good friend Roy and myself had a laugh when they showed up and even a bigger laugh after they left because they purchased carnival stuffed animals and it was funny to see them stuff them in their already stuffed to the max truck.

This was the last yard sale for the summer and we had a great day at Roy’s house.

A Ghostly Encounter on Moving Day


Well here it is moving day and its early morning in November and our two friends  arrived at the house before my husband and I  did, we were driving back home with the U-haul. We greeted our company in the driveway and my friend David told me that he sees an old man in the window rocking in a rocking chair. Well enough said, I wasn’t feeling like myself all morning long and to hear that come from David really set the mood. I was just plain anxious! Today, I am learning from my friend David that there is a mean ghost living in the house. Really? A mean ghost. This is David’s first time coming to my home. I wish I had David over sooner it would have explained a lot of the 6 years of living in this miserable house.

So we talked about things and what we were doing first. We go into the house and start with plan A. I am talking but watching David at the same time. David was getting the readings from standing in the kitchen. He started asking questions and walking around but I didn’t follow. I just let him feel out the house. My friend David is a medium and he can see and talk to the spirits.  I hung out in the kitchen with my friend and my husband drinking coffee. I had turned the heat on but as usual it was very cold in the house.

So we started moving furniture and items from the first floor into the truck and then David and I went upstairs to the den. Now the den is the place where the old man was sitting in the rocking chair in front of the window. The den was my office and my favorite hang out in the house. It was always very warm in this room and there was always a heaviness in the air but things occasionally happened in this room.

David start walking around in the den and says “Is there someone here”? The air was heavy and I could feel a presence standing somewhere in front of me. I have limited ability when it comes to seeing ghosts but I can feel their presence of someone in a room with me. I moved slowly in the room, I put my hands in front of me and started parting the ways to try to feel where the presence was in the room. I can feel it but I can’t find it, I said to David. David said, the ghost wants you to go on the computer and buy something. He also said, he likes to watch everything you do on the computer and he thanks you for the floor. The floor was re-finished and why would he thank me for that? My mouth was starting drop and it only gets better from here. David continues to tell me that this ghost likes playing with me. Well, I didn’t find that funny one bit and I was a bit pissed off but why would I give this ghost the satisfaction at this point!

Come to find out from talking with David, this ghost was mean but he also told me that he did something really bad back in the day.

Here’s a little something I need to share with you before I go any further. For 5 years I had the same recurring dream that I found bones in the floor in the den.  I only told my husband about the recurring dreams because I didn’t want anyone to think I was crazy. Well come to find out from other sources of psychics that there is something in the floor of the den. Damn! I knew I should have taken up the boards and taken a look but it’s too late now.

We continued moving as planned and my thoughts started running wild about all the bad luck that took place at this house and all the things that happened, everything started to make sense. That ghost played a “Wild Card” with me and made me feel like I was crazy and out of control. Ghosts have a way of doing things to people that makes your life seem abnormal. This ghost apparently didn’t care for women because I had found out from David that all the women who ever lived in this house became sick. I was one of those women I became ill in the 2nd year of living in this house and was sick for about a year.

Moving day is coming to an end and now its time for dinner. We took our friends out to dinner at Luigi‘s for the best pizza in the City of Manchester. We chatted about other things and life but no more mention of the ghost. At this point I was sure I didn’t want to know anymore.

I am glad we are out of that house and we have started our life over in a place we can call home that’s full of peace and yes we live with a friendly ghost.

2 Weeks Later


My husband and I had just purchased a 1911 Colonial house in the fall of 2006 in New Hampshire.  We hadn’t moved in yet because we were doing some improvements and we had contractors coming and going. We said, we would move in when everything was complete, so in the meantime we would go to the house on the weekends and do the cleaning and painting etc…

It was just two weeks later after dark on a Saturday evening my husband was standing in the door way on the porch that leads into the kitchen when all of sudden a tape ball passed directly in front of me and hit him in the chest. He said, “What was that for?” I said, I didn’t do that. I saw it fly at high speeds across the kitchen which mind you passed right in front of me. We looked at each other with shocking faces and we stopped to chat about the house and how old it was and just maybe that was a ghost who threw the tape ball. Not another word was spoken about the incident the rest of the night.
