Life in the Antelope Valley...

Believe it or not, this is NOT in the middle of nowhere! Oh the other side of my little green car there is plenty of city, houses, business and more.

In fact, we don't live very far from here. I take this road (Avenue H) from my house to go to work, college, or just to go shop, because the road just below (yes, you guessed it, Avenue I) is full of traffic, stoplights etc.

This is around 20-30th street East, if I keep going, around 100th street East (or more, at the moment I can't remember exactly) the road basically dead ends in one with a fake gas station and hotel, used often in many TV shows (Biggest Loser started one season there for instance), music videos (one of Jessica Simpson comes to mind) and even major motion pictures. I remember seeing episodes of CSI with the Joshua trees in the background... hello? There are no Joshua trees in Vegas! In Palmdale, not too far from here, they built huge hangers to film movies such as Pirates of the Caribbean, I remember these pirate looking guys shopping in my Target store, pretty funny stuff.

So, why am I showing you this? Mainly for the blue sky! Look at that! Just because I live in the Los Angeles area, where smog is so thick at times it's hard to see 20 feet in front of your face, we live over the mountains, which means the smog gets trapped there and we live smog free.

This is just a little peace of our lives.

Can't help but wonder...

I am lying here awake trying to google an answer to what happens to me at night to no avail.

For years now, on and off, starting after my divorce in 1999, when I am ready to go to sleep, and after I turn off the TV and turn off the lights, I truly feel as if what I can only describe as 'someone that I can't see' gently gets into my bed and lies next to me. It never happens if someone else is in bed with me, my husband or my son, only when I am alone. For a time I would literally wait for it to come and then I felt 'safe'. It's really kind of bizarre.

Several months ago some spooky things happened in my bedroom. I heard noises, I truly thought my son came into the room,  but all I saw was some small moving faint lights. I was a little spooked so I told 'it' to go away and to please stop scaring me. I never felt that presence again until last night! I was shocked. When my husband came home (around midnight)it felt like it got up and sat at the edge of the bed for a while and then got 'up' and left.

Is this my sleeping angel? Can't help but wonder...
