I had 8 job interviews today, for a promotion I have been looking forward to for over a year now. Talk about pressure!
Anyway, I wake up in the middle of the night and there was a power outage. I could not see a thing, even my own hand in front of me. I was alone in the house, hubs is away on a business trip.
I was nervous to fall back asleep and not wake up on time to get to my interviews. But, I had faith and tried to get back to sleep.
Then I heard noises. Like steps. I have cats and thought it was them, but the noise was way too loud to be cats. My mind starts racing. My heart starts pounding. Really hard. I was convinced there was someone in the house that had shut the breakers and was there to attack me.
I know it’s irrational, but I really imagined that this was the last moments of my life and that they had knives. So I locked myself in the bathroom, very quietly. I was trying to figure out a way to escape from the window, but I was on the second floor!
Nothing was happening, but I couldn’t get out and go back to bed, as I was afraid the attacker was waiting for me to make that mistake.
I couldn’t find a way to get out without making noice. Over one hour later, power came back. I opened the lights everywhere in the house and slept the last hour of the night with lights open.
Talk about showing up to interviews well rested! I just told my hubs about it and he is so sweet. He didn’t make fun of me for panicking, he said he understood completely.
Phew! I had to let it out!
