    I don't believe in spooky sh!t, so I'm going to go with Teacher Terry's theory.

    Is there something traumatic about his shoes, like in the past a pair of his was sprayed by a skunk, you are having a PTSD flashback, and the washer is there because you want to symbolically cleanse away the stench?

    You know...I remember finding a Jack of spades about 8 years ago! I'll be on the lookout.

    I take ibuprophen pm on a regular bases and lately have been seeing very weird things. My eyes are open. Last night it was a man standing in the closet on my side of the bed. Scared me quite a bit and took awhile to get up the nerve to turn on my light.

    FloatOn....that sounds like sleep paralysis. I used to get that when I was younger. It's pretty scary.

    Maybe you just really want him to help out more with the laundry and visualized it actually happening. And since 7 is considered a lucky number by some, it is an additional indication of his helping out more.

    Okay... just taking a shot here! LOL.

    Before this story I was very much an unbeliever and mostly still am....lol...

    One time about 3 years after my Dh had died, Dd and I were playing Scrabble and
    part way into the game I looked at my remaining letters and let out a gasp.
    They remaining letters spelled his name! Now his name has a Y and W the harder letters to use,
    so maybe a coincidence hmmm maybe NOT!
    Dd laughed and said maybe he was trying to tell us something..."Like Get The Car Cleaned".
    It was one of his pet peeves and it was really, really dirty. I guess we can read anything into things we like.
    Of course this doesn't help with the feet in the basement...I would say you were daydreaming he was actually doing the laundry~

    So, I'm the type of person who believes in signs, but I've been wracking my brain on this one, IL. If I were to go out on a limb, I'd say that the combination of you seeing your DH where he wasn't (in the basement near the washer/dryer) and the 7 of hearts supposedly meaning ideal, unconditional love, maybe it means your relationship is settling into a new phase. You are now retired, and you are working jointly on this second home venture, coexisting with comfort, yet with a detached but loving attitude.

    How's that?

    I apply Occam's Razor to everything, so I think it means you misinterpreted what you saw in the basement and someone lost a playing card.

    I am with Catherine on this - I too am a believer in signs. Not that I think there is a message in everything we see out of the ordinary. I think they are few and far between, but when they do happen it gets our attention. I have had things that I first applied logic too and there was no logical explanation. Some things that I experienced were with others who were with me and experienced it too, so no illusion on my part.

    I have a friend whose DH liked to talk about how time is not linear and says when you are looking for something and can't find it, then go back to the exact same place and there it is - that is what is happening. The object hasn't gotten there yet. I am over-simplifying and paraphrasing what he actually said, but it makes sense. I have experienced that at times and it is totally baffling. So, with that as the premise, it seems seeing your DH's feet/legs in front of the washer was just a quick glimpse into another time period. Maybe past, maybe future when he was or will be in that exact spot. But, with the 7 of hearts playing card, that is harder to explain IF it does mean anything. Maybe it doesn't. If it does, you will probably have it revealed to you before long.
