Yuck.  I hope the dispute ends quickly and quietly, for their sake and yours.

The only suggestion I have is to double check that all of your doors and windows are locked (just for peace of mind) and take a nice hot shower, or bath, to relax.  That’s just what I would do.

Your Fiance should be home soon, and with everything sounding like it’s under control at the scene of the dispute, I wouldn’t worry too much.  ๐Ÿ™‚

Yeah, crazy stuff can happen anywhere I suppose.  It is just good to pay attention to your gut feelings and use caution where ever you live.  I wouldn’t sweat it though, as I am sure that the police know what they are doing with the domestic situation.  Do something relaxing!

Can you go to a friend’s house or invite someone over for a glass of wine? Visit a neighbour for a late evening cup of tea? Put on your favourite girlie movie and try to take your mind off it. Your Fiance will be home soon and you’ll feel better.

I totally know how you feel though. Fiance was out of town Sunday night and I literally didn’t sleep a wink all night because I was so paranoid. Last night I downed a glass of wine and fell asleep on the couch, I was so exhausted. I hate being home alone too ๐Ÿ™

I used to date a police officer, and he always had a HUGE (heavy) metal flashlight under the bed. It used to make me feel so much safer if I was at the house overnight without him. Maybe something like that would make you feel more secure? If you get bored you can make shadow puppets too ๐Ÿ˜‰

the other day i posted about how my hubby and i woke up around 2:30 to police lights outside our window – didn’t think too much of it – went back to sleep. i left for work, saw the news vans parked at the end of the street and got online and saw that the store at the end of our block (literally on our block, 4 houses down) was robbed in the middle of the night and the idiot KIDS who SHOT AT THE COPS got away – but I think did get caught later that day…

still really freaked me out. all i can say is i am SO happy to have an alarm system!

sorry you’re feelin’ scared. def. a bath will help.

I second everything the others have said. Also, it helps to think – okay, if something were to happen, what would I do? Even thinking like, “I’ll grab my phone and call 911” is helpful, so then you can be somewhat rational if something awful were to happen, instead of panicking instantly, hopefully.

Other calming idea: go on the ‘bee. I think you have that one covered already though. ๐Ÿ™‚
