  1. Dear Alison,
    What a horrible experience. I hope these men never show up at your door ever again. May the next few days be calm and worry-free.

  2. Oh Alison, my heart goes out to you. I am sure that was an agonizing experience for you. Life's little stresses can really get us down sometimes. After a day or two of wallowing in self-pity we women get back up, put on a happy face for the children and pretend our lives are just perfect. I hope the rest of your week is peachy.

  3. This post is so REAL, and it touched a cord with me. We've not had the banging on the door, but our phone has rung and we've gotten the letters.
    Bless you, girl.
    Btw, I've not written here in ages and ages, but think of you everytime I use my Mrs. Meyer's lavender cleaner. 🙂

  4. How awful for you Alison ~ I can't imagine how Mark can allow things like this to happen, after all HIS child lives in this house, this sanctuary which should not be violated at any cost. I guess you must be feeling weary, sweetie, but you are finding strength deep inside of yourself even at the times when you feel you have no more left to find. Sending you lots of (((hugs)))

  5. Poor you, I know they are only doing their job (although I'm sure some relish it) but they is mighty scary isn't they. The people before the people before me (if you know what I mean) left lots of debt and did a moonlight leaving me to deal with the bailifs. Trying to convince them at 6 in the morning that you are really not Mr Anderson whilst waving your passport at them for identification, particularly when you are a lady (and with a bust like mine could never be mistaken for a gent) ain't fun. Here's hoping the rest of the week turns out great for you.

  7. Not a nice experience and, I hope never to be repeated. Will you settle down into happy domesticity again, honey? If you need that sort of thing & believe that the walls hold echoes of things past, perhaps you need to read 'Spiritual Housecleaning' by Kathryn L. Robyn; I know Sarah Ban Breathnach recommends this book & that she has done little cleansing ceremonies to clear out 'bad vibes'. It could be worth a go, if you really feel that your home has been violated.

  8. That would have frightened the life out of me! I am sorry it happened to you and hope you had a nice rest of the day out afterwards.
    Take care.
    God bless.

  9. Home is our refuge from the outside world, a safe place where we can hopefully shut out unpleasant things. But it only takes something like this to make us realise how fragile that concept is. Hope you are OK now.

  10. Being a grown up really stinks sometimes, doesn't it? I just finished paying what bills I could afford for the week before visiting your blog this morning – I'm not alone, I see.

  12. Alison…I'll call you Alison though I don't really know you. You touch my heart every time I come to read your blog. I never had anyone come knocking when I threw out my worthless husband but, the phone did ring. I promise you it gets better. Who knows how long for you but I wish you blessings, my friend!

  13. This post is neither pitiful, nor inappropriate. It's honest. We all have these small foxes that spoil the grapes – we're all human with our individual battles of the day. Sharing these honest moments of weakness encourages us to remember we can make it through days like this.
    May your moat be wide and your walls be high. May security and peace dwell within.
