So curiosity has struck me because I keep seeing “Illinois” plates EVERYWHERE, and Erin suggested that it might be Ashley “thinking” about me. This started on Memorial Day, and it’s been nuts – like, they will randomly jump out in front of me and are literally EVERYWHERE. Anyway, so tonight, I can’t remember what prompted me, I googled Ashley’s name and stuff with her mother came up. Before I go there, I wanted to say that it said Ash lives in Chicago… “Mylife” pretty much reveals everywhere you have lived… it even mentioned that Ash lived in Wisconsin..
So a few things… first off, I think it is very eerie that Ashley’s mom was on the news a couple years ago and traded in her silver dollars… when I literally collect them and buy them off people. I literally (call it “luck” or what – actually, I think it’s karma, because I had some stolen from me in the past) paid $22 for 3 of them, and they together are worth $2,000. The guy at the Fairgrounds said that he thought they were “fake,” but they turned out to be real!
Anyway, so here’s the news article I found with Teresa (Ash’s mother) selling them: http://www.wlfi.com/dpp/on_the_money/people-seeking-alternative-ways-to-find-extra-holiday-cash She got ripped off MAJORLY by the way, but that’s another story. I collect them, and I would have given her $50 a piece for them! Some of them can be worth good money.
Excited by what I had discovered, I bravely and likely in vain, sent Teresa a Facebook message that reads:
21 minutes ago
Hey, I saw your news article on the news. I actually buy silver dollar coins for $50 a piece. It looks like you sold quite a few! If you get anymore, I will buy them off of you.
I hope you have been doing well, there are some great changes at Twkyenham! The pool is about to open, and I am super excited!
I had a dream that you got a house! I hope you are doing well, and enjoying your new place.

Anyway, then the saddest thing came up… and I have been thinking about, and have actually thought about this, several times… Ashley’s dearest grandmother… she passed away… exactly what I was afraid of. Article: http://hosting-5049.tributes.com/show/Ruth-M.-Leader-91169949
I want to apologize to Ashley for not being there… I didn’t have any idea she had passed sine Ashley cut me off right around the time of this article… if I had known that, I would have literally, flown to this funeral and been there with Ashley. I am not exaggerating; I would do anything for that woman, and to support her… her grandmother was such a beautiful, nice, strong woman. She died around the time Ashley and I met… “March.” Granted, 8 years later. Still, I do not remember the last time that I heard from Ashley…
The last conversation I had with her was while I was at the mall in New Jersey with Erin shopping for Mac’s… we had gone to the Mac store, then to the Disney store (for Erin), then to a food equipment store, and I had called Ashley somewhere in between… I think in the Disney store… and I had told her that I would be going to South Korea to teach English. I am not sure of the month, but I honestly think it was right around the time her grandmother had passed… I had/have never heard from Ashley since, except that she no longer wanted to talk with me should my “feelings” come between her and a “future” relationship.
I wish I had the email from Ashley that she sent me departing our own ways, but I don’t… I closed the account… I might actually have it in a blog, I would have to check… Irregardless, I am shocked to learn that her grandmother passed, and I am more saddened than anything to have not been able to be a part of Ashley’s support during this trying phase, especially since she was there when my father passed away.
I just signed the guestbook… I will probably go and pay my respects and put flowers on her grave soon.
Some errie coincidences are coming up with this search… As I posted in a previous entry, I had a dream that Teresa bought a house… well, on one of the searches it says a house was either sold or purchased on April 21st 2012 to Teresa via Majestic Homes – IF it’s the same Teresa! Weird weird weird… I do not have a connection like this with anyone else… the only two other experiences I have had were with my stray cat, “Buckeye,” 15 years ago and my ex, Jen… so strange. Only Ashley.
THEN the woman who baptized me (My mother’s BEST friend) comes up: Dr. Sally Downham Miller – AEI Speakers Bureau, still in the “Teresa” search… what the hell! …ofall people! Creepy! Yeah… “Majestic HOME” sale:
|2450 Estancia Lane||Majestic Custom Homes of Lafayette Inc.||Teresa A. Hull||3/15/2012||Lafayette||$155,450.00||$300.00|
2450 Estancia Lane… I am sorry, but this cannot get any creepier. I dream of this woman… well, Ashley, not her mother, obviously ;) …although, as I said, I dreamt that she purchased a house… in fact, I honestly want to go back and see when I dreamt it, because it may (actually, it was) right around the time that she purchased it! I mean, I have had dreams of Ashley, where I am screaming her name… like, waking up and screaming her name. I had one dream like this, and it was extremely powerful and intense.
I also had a dream that Ashley was coming to visit home, and sure enough, she did! …the next day! Erin swears we are meant to be. Anyway, I have to go check this out. As for everything else going on, a lot. Re-instated, I picked up a part-time job to help supplement some money until South Korea next year :) 1 year in Korea, and I should be in a much better financial position!
Okay, ta ta!
