My decision to re-open this Blog was not one that I took lightly. I played around with the idea for months. There were a few reasons that led me to do this. The first one is that I will soon be removing my families paranormal story from print. And the second reason is that I am currently working on a paranormal book which has led the activity in our home to pick back up. Unfortunately. it looks like I will be updating this blog again from time to time. If this Blog can help just one person see the signs and take action to keep themselves from going through what we have, it will be worth every word written.

Just Creepy

I'm sitting here waiting for the coffee to get done, and thinking over last night. Still unsure why I'm up at this hour.I took some arthritis meds and went to sleep @ 12:30. I had every intention of sleeping until about 7:30. But noooo, I'm sitting here with the powerful feeling that I'm not alone. It's a really creepy feeling that has me looking over my shoulder. At some point during the night, I was startled out of my sleep by a loud noise in our bedroom. I'm not sure what it was. I lay there a while and listened. But never heard anything else.Then the dogs in the bedroom woke me up growling. I wasn't sure if they had heard something outside and were reacting to it. Or if they had heard something in the house.I lay there again and listened. Not hearing anything else, I soon fell back asleep.The dogs outside were all restless last night. And barked quite a bit. It wasn't there regular, middle of the night, bark. It had more of an intense urgency to it.Something like a person had entered the yard. I'm just going to assume that some animal was roaming around last night, and had them upset.
But I can't shake this feeling this morning. Twice I have had to stop myself from waking Marty up to come in here with me.It's that really creepy feeling that you get as a kid. When you turn out the bathroom light.Then look down the long dark hallway ahead of you.The whole time your walking, you just feel like something is there breathing down your neck. Urging you to hurry up and walk faster. That is the feeling I have as I sit here at my computer this morning.

Marty has just gotten up and came in here. He says he just had the most horrible dream. When I asked him to tell me about it, I got a very quick, but firm, NO. And to have him get up at this hour is unheard of. It just doesn't happen. But it seems he has had quite a restless night himself. I told him about my creepy feeling this morning. He feels it too.

I have just reach down beside me and quietly turned on my digital recorder. I guess if whatever this is, is going to make its presence known so strongly, we may as well give it a chance to communicate.

It's going to be a long day. My eyes are burning from the lack of sleep.And I feel like something is about to happen. It's just creepy.

Update

Just updating, as usual. I try not to let to much time go before I update, as I tend to forget some of the smaller things that happen. And that my friends, is NOT paranormal. That is just a mild case of old age and a severe case of CRS. :)

So today Marty and I were in the kitchen, I had just walked up to give him a hug. As I stepped away from him, we both watched our freezer door swing open.Being about two feet from it, it was sort of hard to miss.I reached out and closed it. Then reopened it, to make sure it was sealing correctly.Of course, it was. So again, no explanation.
Things are still pretty crazy in our bedroom at night. So Marty nor I either one has been sleeping much.

The next Investigation

I found out yesterday that the next Investigation will be around the end of next month. This time they want to focus on the surrounding land as well as our home.Just like last time, I'm absolutely confident they won't be disappointed. Whatever we have here has no problem making itself known. This time, they want to broaden the team. Which I think will be an excellent idea. I just hope they are all ready to have some experiences. Everyone that was here last time had their own personal experiences, along with images and EVP's. So I look forward to seeing what we get this time. Of course, I will post here the day after the investigation.

It was LOUD!

Sunday was exciting, to say the least.Quite a few times, Marty got his sleeve tugged.Sort of like how a child will pull the sleeve of an adult to get their attention. This happened so many times that he started to get annoyed with it.

Sunday evening, we were all getting ready to eat dinner and watch TV.(Sort of winding down for the evening.) Marty and I were in the kitchen, our DIL was at my computer, and Chris was walking into the kitchen when we all heard this loud POP.(If you have ever listened to the kids "snap and pops" that activate when thrown on the ground.) It was much like that. But loud enough to hurt your ears! And it happened BEHIND all of us. We checked out everything we could possibly think of, and never found what it was.This really has me puzzled. Could that be paranormal? Do things like that happen when you have an "energy"? If anyone knows anything about this, please message me. I would love to know.

Later that night, Marty and I went to our bedroom to watch TV. I had my head laying on his chest when we both felt something between us. It felt like a moth had fluttered between us. It was actually against my cheek!And it was strong enough to tug Marty's cross on his necklace. We both got up, turned lamps on. But never found what it was. There was nothing to be seen anywhere.

Yesterday seemed to be pretty quiet.Nothing much happened. Until about 5 am this morning. Marty and I were awoken by another really LOUD noise. It was the sound of something hitting the floor in our bedroom. Marty raised up to see Amy staring at the wall and turning her head from side to side as she moved her ears back and forth. Like she heard something we couldn't. We got up and checked. Again, nothing was out of place at all. No explanations.

Just a few moments ago, I went into the kitchen to make a pot of coffee.( This is a big coffee family. We easily make four or more pots throughout the day.) We have a small decorative bowl that we keep our coffee filters in. Marty reaches in to get one, and there was a strange bug in it. He threw it away and got out another, the same thing, it had a bug in it too. We started looking, and this bowl was full of these bizarre bugs! They were crawling all over the coffee filters! We looked around, there was not a single bug in the whole kitchen. Only on the coffee filters. As if they were put there for us to find. They were not there 30 minutes before. And I can't find another bug anywhere at all. It seems to me that this "thing" may be getting stronger. I hope and pray not.

Long Night

As usual, the strange occurrences are still happening. And I try to update and list them every chance I get.

Wednesday, our DIL heard muffled voices throughout the house. So I turned on the digital recorder.Sure enough, we captured an EVP that actually sounds like it has an accent.(That is a first!) I will try to get that uploaded for you a bit later.

Yesterday, Our DIL was walking out of the kitchen, and she had a refrigerator magnet thrown at her head! Luckily it missed.Then as I was leaving the bathroom, the floor vent lifted up and flew back into the bathroom.Marty just happened to be watching as this happened. Which naturally made him very angry that I was being picked on. So he yelled a few choice words at our "unseen guest." Which, I think, resulted in my being kept awake all night. I guess I may have gotten 2 and a half hours sleep last night. I am absolutely dead on my feet today. It all started just as we lay down to go to sleep.Things began moving on my dresser. Perfume bottles clinking, prescription bottles being knocked over.I turned over and turned my back to the noise as if to ignore it. That's when my dog Amy lept off the bed. A few seconds later, the cover was roughly tugged down to my waist. I froze for a moment. Then realized I don't need to let it scare me. So I got angry instead and yanked my covers back up.Then I lay and listened to things on my husband's dresser move around.I turned over again and tried to go to sleep. Just as I dozed off, I was jerked out of sleep to the sound of fingers drumming on the wall. (Sort of the sound a bored person would make.) And such was the rest of my night. Each time I would drift off, something would happen to jerk me awake.And as it always happens, Marty was sleeping deeply beside me. Why does it happen that one of us gets harassed all night while the other rests soundly? Anyone got any answers to this?

Outside too?

Things around the house have been pretty normal, and when I say "normal,"I mean, normal for us.
But yesterday, we heard a loud crash outside. None of us really paid it much attention, assuming it was Leather. (Our three-year-old Pit Bull.) She can be running and playing and somehow manage to run directly into the house. So we just assumed it was her.
But today, Marty and I went outside, and I noticed that my wind chimes were on the front porch! These things have never fallen before.And they were on crook screws for hanging. They would have had to be lifted up and thrown. There was absolutely no wind at all. And the screws were perfectly fine. There was just no way to explain or debunk this. So we just hung them back up with a, "that was weird."
Now thinking back on that, I think we may try for some outside EVP's tonight.

Update

It's been a couple of days since I have updated, but that doesn't mean all has been quite.
A couple of nights ago, no one in the house actually slept. Over coffee that morning, we were all discussing how we had each had a restless night. When Marty says,"Look at this," and raises his arm to show, huge blood red scratches down it. I can say, I wasn't really shocked. This has somehow become a way of life. But later that morning, I was changing in the bathroom, when I lifted my shirt and noticed the red scratches down my stomach.Great, This is going to hurt for a while, was my only thought.

I have noticed though, some mornings when I get up. There is a single candle (battery operated) Lit up. Like it lit itself overnight. I was told that this could just be humidity. But I'm not so sure, as we have used these same candles before. Since they seem to want to light themselves. To try to make contact. And the candles would actually light up as if in response to our questions.(Does humidity change in response to questions?) I don't know. I have absolutely no answers to any of this.

I have thought (Just a thought) of trying to get another team to investigate. Just to see what they come up with. With them not having any background in the area.

We are having CPI come back in September. They said they would also like to check the land around the home too. This should be really interesting. I just hope we can get some answers, and then maybe find a way to deal with this.

Which room now?

I have come to the realization, that our "unseen guest," just may not ever leave. Sigh.....
I don't know why it is even here. I don't know what it wants.I don't know how it got here. I don't know how to make it leave.And I'm sick of searching for the answers to all of the questions, and hitting brick walls.I'm tired of not sleeping at night. I'm tired of my dogs being frightened. I think I'm just tired.
But what do I do? Moving is NOT an option. My family owns this land, and I don't see being anywhere else.
With being as frustrated as we all are. We decided (as a family) since we can't seem to make it leave. To at least try to make it stay out of the kid's room. Marty, being the head of the house, went into their room and told it had to leave that area. (Using blessed olive oil and kosher salt.) Well, it freaking worked. NOW, it seems to have moved to our room! OK, I KNOW it has moved into our room. The dogs are no longer sleeping at night. They have both moved to the foot of the bed and lay with their tails tucked.Where they once loved to cuddle with us. They no longer sleep under the covers but have chosen to lay on top of the bed. As we are trying to go to sleep, random things are being moved around in the bedroom.That sort of frightens me. I know that it shouldn't.But laying in a dark room, hearing things above your head on the headboard shift around, makes one a bit uneasy.Not to mention, the stuff on both dressers moving. For example, just last night. Levi first got onto the bed with a small toy ball with a bell inside it. He played with it a bit, then went to sleep. Marty and I both heard that stupid ball fall off the bed numerous times during the night.But Levi never stirred.So I knew, laying there with my eyes closed, that each time it hit the floor, something had put it back on the bed.
My poor Amy is an old dog. She has always slept right up against me under the covers.But now, if she curls up there in her spot. She will leap up and run to the foot of the bed. Like something has hit her.That is breaking my heart. I have tried to coax her back up there with me. But she just won't do it. Seeing how much this was bothering me, Marty once again got forceful and told our guest that it had to stop. So far, it hasn't worked, and I grow more tired and more frustrated daily.I can't describe how it makes me feel to see my sweet Amy be so uncomfortable in our room. Where once she would have been the first one on the bed waiting for me to snuggle her. Now she is the last one on the bed. And very hesitant about being there at all. I don't like this.
