Strange happenin's

I had two strange things happen to me last night all within a matter of 30 minutes.

  1. I was in bed reading my book for the book club and was laying on my left side. It is Such a Pretty Fat so it isn't scary or paranormal at. all. I see Bug walking past the foot of my bed so I turn over to talk to her. No one is there. I saw a brown shadow go past the bed. It was the color of Bug's hair and it was her height. I know what I saw.
  2. After dismissing the shadow, I finish my book (finally) and turn out the light. As I'm dozing off I feel Lily walk from the foot of the bed and sit down next to my knee. I lift my head to whisper to her to "come here" and nothing was there. I looked around and Lily was on Carl's dresser... Jasmine wasn't in the room.

I quickly shut my eyes and tried not to think about it.

Strange, huh?

Creepy! I guess Carl was working?

Marni said...

yep...

CindyDianne said...

Of course! I am not sure I would have been able to sleep...

SkippyMom said...

wooo wooo wooo...that would wig me out. Did Carl come and keep you company at least? 'Cause I would've been screaming for Pooldad...lol :D

SkippyMom said...

oops...just saw Carl was at work.

I would've grabbed one of the kids...giggle..y'know as a shield, just in case. ;D

I'm surprised you weren't standing at my front door with your blanked around your shoulders and your pillow in your hand. You are getting brave in your old age.

Weird & Creepy - take the dogs to bed with you from now on!
I left a little something for you at my place today;)

With regard to Coffeypot's comment, I would have been at their front door. Freeky!

Marni said...

the dogs were in their crates right next to the bed and had no reaction what-so-ever.

Craig said...

Have you been drinking too much coffee?

Bubs said...

That would have been enough to get me out of bed, downstairs to check that all the doors were locked again, stop and watch both my kids sleeping for a minute, before even trying to get to sleep.

That happens to me all the time -- our bedroom is right off the kitchen, and when our door is pulled to but not closed all the way, I can often see "something" pass by the door or "something" standing at the fridge. This is after everyone's gone to bed, and I'm the only one awake. No one else is in the house.

FYI, this is also the reason that we keep bread in the fridge. (I know that makes no sense, so lemmee 'splain...) I grew up in this house, from age 4 to 16. Whenever we'd leave a bag of bread out on the counter, we'd leave the room and come back to find it in the middle of the kitchen floor. We had no inside animals. We tested it nine ways from Sunday, too. Every way you could think of. We finally ended up thinking our "visitor" had something against bread.

You know my opinion about these things.
Our little visitor has blonde hair, much like Jessica did when she was younger.
Thankfully, she has been quiet lately.
I hate being home alone and seeing these 'things.' You are probably much braver than I am. I would have screamed.

Imprints of another space or time are very common. The trouble is people are rarely ever relax enough to actually "see" or tend to justify them away. They are just shadows of the past and can't hurt you...you aren't exactly there to that particular frozen momentin time either. Animals aren't affected because it is the natural order of things to them and nothing that doesn't happen all around them every day.

And yes, I DO believe what I just wrote. Shhhhh...it can be our secret.

Angels keeping watch over you and the gang! I would rather think that than someting creepy.

Very weird! I would have been completely creeped out and needed to turn on all the lights for a bit. Then I probably would have ensured that all of me was in the bed to prevent a clown ala Poltergeist from getting me.
