B.J.'s post last week has really put me in the mood for autumn. All the stuff that comes with it is so appealing - the leaves, the food, the weather, Halloween...
So, I think I am sitting on a gold mine for this Halloween season! Last year, we bought this great house. It's nice and big - fairly new. I never would have imagined that it could end up being a real life "haunted" house. I'm thinking maybe I should start charging admission.
It started with little things. Lights turning on and off by themselves (bad wiring right?), the door that seems to unlock itself (I decided I was losing my mind), and little noises (must be the kids)! Stray shadows here and there can be easily explained too, huh?
Then some spookier events were occurring. Omar and I swear we saw "a figure" one night. It was very obvious that we both observed the same thing at the exact same time. And just ask Brenda if she'll ever sleep in my basement again (which, by the way, is very far from dungeon-like). I don't think she cared too much for the breathing going on in her room. You can ask my friend Donna about it too. She's seen something just like what we did and heard the noises Brenda had experienced. I hadn't told her about any of it!! And I won't even think of telling you about the time I felt like I was being held down in bed - you'll think I am the crazy sister.
On top of that, we have bats in the attic!! There is a small space above my entry that they stay in. Each night at about 9:00 they start to take flight. One by one they wiggle out of a gap smaller than my finger. On busy nights we've counted about 90 bats!!!
Sounds like a pretty good place to start a haunted house tour to me! Start it off with the nightly bat show and then move on to visit our unexpected house guest.
My question of the day : Do you believe in ghosts or spirits or whatever you want to call them? As you can see, I do!
