You’re going to have to excuse me and whatever I write because I didn’t get home until 3:00 in the morning and didn’t fall asleep until almost 4. I was feeling a little wired and anxious over the night’s events and needed about an hour to crawl into bed and decompress which is why it took an hour to fall asleep. Then, the kids, having a wanton disregard for my comfort, were awake and running into my room around 7 excited to see if I had survived the night.
I had survived the night though I felt totally hungover. I think it was a combination of a lack of sleep, dehydration, and (dare I say?) getting older. I texted my girlfriend who was with me last night, “Is this a sign of aging? *crying emoji crying emoji crying emoji*” and she said it was because she’s usually the voice of reason. Then we reminisced about how when we were in our 20s we could drink out butts off, go to bed well after 3:00 in the morning, and wake up feeling less crappy. I don’t necessarily miss those days but I do miss having a little more resiliency.
By this point, two whole paragraphs in, you’re probably wondering what the heck am I talking about? So, I shall tell you. A few months ago I posted on Facebook that every now and then a picture I thought I took at Sligo would not be in the gallery on my phone. It was a semi-sarcastic/semi-serious post because it is true. The few times a pictures has gone missing it has always only been pictures I have taken at the house.
Anyway, the next morning I woke-up to a message from the head of a paranormal investigation team who asked for me to call him. I did and we talked and I told him the few things I knew about the house and alluded to some experiences I knew others had. Eventually, and over the course of a month or so, we set-up a time for he and his team to come out and investigate Sligo. And, the best part out of all of that? Marcus and I were invited to tag along…
To be continued…(and yes, I have a very devilish grin right now because I just know there are are a few of you who are probably freaking out reading this).
