Invaders

Somebody, help!!!!

I woke up this morning to the sound of invaders in my house. When I came downstairs I found the invaders had strewn Cheerios all over the dining room table and chairs, and on the floor. They scattered my daughter's stuffed animals around the living room and left socks and other unmentionables laying around. Then they escaped out the front door, leaving it wide open so the cold November air could invade the house as well.

When I was in my office checking e-mail I think they revisited because I heard dramatic screams of, "Stop touching me!" and, "Leave me alone!" They even went upstairs and turned the lights on in my kids' bedrooms - and left them on. Although the perpetrators' voices sounded like my own kids, I know we were invaded because my children have emphatically professed their innocence in this case.

So, if you're in the Lansing, Michigan area, be on the look out for these invaders. I'm quite sure there are three of them. They sounded like two males and a female to me. It appears they will eat Cheerios and favor the Apple Cinnamon variety over Honey Nut. Chances are they are running around barefoot, yes, even in this cool weather. In fact, I think they like the cold - perhaps that's why they have an aversion to closing doors. These invaders don't appear to be dangerous, so don't be alarmed if you see them. Just offer them a toasted bagel and then send them my way to close the doors and turn off the lights.

Hi, Amy,

The invaders were back this morning. But this time they were cleaning, and one of them gave me a big hug. It was great!

Thanks for sharing your story. :)

I think those invaders are in Hamilton too..They had a water fight in my bathroom last night!! What a mess, and yet my 6 yr old said it was my 2yr old's idea?!! Hummm... I like that it is always someone elses "idea". I read an e-mail once that said "I'm thankful for a messy house to clean, because it means I have family to make it a mess."
