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.

Something New

Well, there has been somewhat of a change. Now I am being woke up around midnight instead of three.
And we have had some new activity that I need to document.

A few days ago, I ordered Marty a book from Amazon. He was sitting there reading his book, when he says, "Lisa, haven't you heard the name, blah blah blah?" I said, Marty! Don't say that out loud!! It was the name of one of the higher demons.And Marty didn't even think when he said it. It was a name that had been in something that he read a while back. He was just referring to that.But it still sort of creeped me out.
The evening went on without a hitch. The spoken name is forgotten. Until my DIL calls me over to look at my grandson.He was playing in the sunroom, wearing nothing but his diaper. He had three scratches running from the top of his shoulder down his back all the way to his diaper. I was shocked!! I carefully examined them, there was no way this happened while he was playing. He acted as if they weren't even there.If one of the dogs had scratched him, he would have cried hysterically. Also, my son and DIL were in the sunroom with him the whole time. They would have seen anything happen to him.(So he must have thrown a sharp object over his shoulder, right?) This really put me on edge.He acted like they didn't bother him. So we all tried to just forget about it. Marty had spent the latter part of the evening in our bedroom playing Xbox. When he finished his game, he just left the TV on with the volume turned off. As he usually does. Later, I went into our bedroom to brush out my hair for the night. Just as I reach for my hairbrush, the TV set behind me turned off. I turned to look at it, just as the screen was going dark. (So this was some sort of electrical issue. Even though we have no electrical problems, right?) I chose to ignore it and went on with what I was doing.
Amy continues to stay in bed with me at night. No longer staying in the front part of the house alone.

Last night I woke up @ midnight gasping for air like I was suffocating! It was like I was inhaling big gulps of air, but it just wasn't enough. I turned over to my side and tried to slow my breathing. I finally drifted back off .to be awakened a short while later by our Boston barking. He was standing on the foot of the bed, barking at our open bedroom door. I couldn't see anything. I listened for a while and never heard anything. But I had a horribly scared feeling. Like when you've just awakened from a nightmare.I snuggled into Marty's back and pulled the covers up to my chin. I recited the lord's prayer as I fell asleep.

Updating

I'm sorry it's been a while since I have updated. I have been spending most of my time working on Summer Graphics for my other two Blogs.

Our grandson has started screaming during the night again. I know most kids do cry at night. But this is a bit different. He is still sound asleep while he is doing this. We have researched night terrors. But have found nothing that will even compare to his symptoms. We had some of his blankets blessed. And so far that has worked. He slept all night the first night he took the blessed blanket to bed with him. (Thank you for that Dennis. I can't tell you just how much that has meant to us all.)

This past Tuesday morning. I had gotten up pretty early. (Before the clock ever went off.) As I came into the living room, I saw my son sitting on the couch and my DIL sitting on the love seat. You could see in their posture that they were both exhausted. Our Grandson had another night of screaming, so they both had been up all night. My son had to go to work in a few hours, so I talked him into going back to bed in my bed. That way he could at least sleep a couple of hours. So he went and got into my bed with his dad. My DIL and I made some coffee and sat down at our computers. We were sitting there working, the whole house was silent. Then from out of no where, we hear both bedroom doors open. One on each side of the house,e simultaneously!. We both jump to our feet. My DIL goes to check on our grandson, and he is sound asleep.I look in on my husband and son, both are snoring. As we settle back into our chairs. Thinking it must have been the wind. (With no windows or doors open.) Or it could have been the house shifting.(Yea, right.). We didn't discuss what had just happened. We just let it pass.

Wednesday morning. Marty said the activity in the house had kept him awake most of the night. He said sometime around midnight. Things in the kitchen and dining room had started moving around. He said that on two separate occasions he even listened to footsteps walking through the house. To hear him tell this made me feel validated and UN-nerved all at the same time. I have heard these same noises many many times while the house was asleep. And to finally have him experience it was a bit unsettling. I could halfway say it was just my imagination before. But to have him hearing it too made it real.

Our female Pit Bull Amy has recently taken to sleeping on mine and Marty's pillows like a cat.  This dog is eleven years old. She has NEVER done this. But for the past two nights, when we go to bed. She goes with us and curls up beside me. After about half an hour she will get off the bed and go to the sunroom to get on the couch. Usually, she would spend the rest of the night here unless she gets cold. Then she comes back to bed and gets under the covers with me. But now, around midnight, she comes back into the bedroom, gets up on the bed and goes to the very top of the bed and lays down on our pillows. She woke me up doing this last night. And she was trembling. I assumed she was cold. So I tried to coax her under the covers.She wouldn't budge from her spot. And she just kept staring out the bedroom door. I didn't hear or see anything. But apparently, she did.

Shadows

A couple of mornings ago, I was the first one up. I turn on my coffee pot and head to the bathroom.
Just as I reach the bathroom, the door was shut, and the light was on. (So, someone else is up before me.) I wait a minute and hear no noise coming from the bathroom. I lightly tap on the door. Then I see a shadow move in front of the door. Whomever it is, is just standing there inside the doorway. I tap again, and this time I whisper a bit loudly, "Are you OK."? And the shadow totally disappears. I slowly open the door, there is no one in the bathroom! I can not explain the feeling I felt just then. I know what I saw. Someone had been just inside this door. I kept thinking about this most of the day. I know without a doubt, someone was there.
