Quick Updates

I was unable to connect to the internet all week, so I wasn't able to post these as they happened.

August 20th -

  • I kept seeing flashes of light around the front door. They were almost as if someone were standing in another room flashing a flashlight towards the door. No one was awake but myself. The only way light could shine in this area from outside is through the back door, but the shades were drawn and no light was coming in each time I saw these flashes.
  • I heard the sound of a car growling in the same area of the flashes. It was much to loud to be coming from outside. I even checked outside and saw nothing. 
  • I also heard a loud thump, as if something fell onto the wood floor near the front door (in the same area as the previous two). I had a clear view of the area when I heard it and not only did nothing fall, but nothing was there.
August 21st -
  • I was laying on the couch reading, when I heard the distinct sound of someone walking around and banging things around upstairs. My boys' room is immediately above where I was laying and they have a habit of playing late at night, so I went up to tell them to be quiet and found them both fast asleep. No one else in the house was awake and the sound continued most of the night.

The activity around here seems to have really picked up over the last few days.

Last night, I was sitting at my computer reading over posts on a website I frequent.

My computer desk is in one corner of my living room, so that when sitting at the computer, my back is to the kitchen.

I had the kitchen light on and the light was illuminating my desk and the wall above it.

As I was reading over things on the computer, a shadow appeared on the wall in front of me and move quickly away, as if someone had stepped into the doorway to the kitchen and blocked out the light and then quickly moved away.

I honestly thought it was my daughter coming down for a late-night snack and turned around to greet her, only to find nothing. Everyone was in bed, sound asleep.

About an hour later, I was laying on the couch reading a book when I heard the distinct sound of a soda can opening. I again thought it was my daughter, but quickly found that she was sound asleep in her room.

Then today, my boys were in the living room watching Blue Clues. I was watching them dance around to the song on the show when I suddenly heard a child's voice murmur something. I couldn't make out what it said, but it wasn't any of my boys as I was looking right at them and none of them spoke. The TV was playing a song at the time, so it wasn't the TV. The voice was really out of place and sounded female. No one was outside. My daughter wasn't home. It was odd.

Let Me In

Just a few moments ago, my male dog (George) wanted outside.

I walked to the back door to let him outside.

Now, I also have a female dog (Calypso) that is much larger than my male who has to be crated at night due to using the floor as a bathroom when she isn't supervised. We keep her crate in the back room, right near the back door.

As I went to let George outside, Calypso pawed at the crate door, letting me know that she too wanted outside. Now when she is outside, I have to lock the back door because she has figured out how to jump up and paw the door knob until the door opens.

So I let both of the dogs outside and locked the door. I checked to make sure it was locked and also pulled on the door to make sure it latched closed properly as sometimes it doesn't catch. The door was securely closed and locked.

I then went to my desk to finish watching a show that I had pulled up on the computer. All of a sudden I heard a playful growl. It was too loud to have been outside, so I got up to look and found the back door wide open and the dogs wrestling in the back room.

All is Quiet

All has been really quiet here lately. There really hasn't been much in the way of activity.

Yesterday, my daughter reported that she saw something white walk across the yard through the window, but when she got up to see who or what it was, there was nothing there.

I have been hearing odd knocking or popping noises in the living room at night. I have no idea what they are or where they are coming from. They are loud though and will happen a few times and then stop. It doesn't sound like the typical settling of the building either, but who knows.

Also, last night I was laying on the couch trying to sleep when I heard what almost sounded like a radio tuned to a bad station. It was muffled and quiet, but it sounded like people talking off in some distant room, with some static mixed in. We don't have any working radios anywhere in the house other than my daughter's room and she didn't have her's on.
