Ok.. I think I may be losing my mind. Or what is left of it.
You guys that have been reading me a while know that I think we have a visitor in our home. His name is Mychael and he was my best friend in high school. He passed away 2 months before J-man was born and I didn't know until a year later. In between the time of J-man's birth and finding out about my buddy's death, strange things were happening that didn't make sense. Once I realized Mychael was gone, things fell into place.
Things were pretty silent once we moved into the home we are in now. No lights going on or off, toys are always quiet, etc.
That's been changing though and I'm beginning to think either Mychael has gained strength and making himself known, or we have something else here.
I mentioned in another post that I saw a shadow one night and thought it was Bug. I keep seeing things from the corner of my eye, but in the past week more weird things happened.
This past weekend, Carl got up to go to work. He was downstairs and I was sleeping pretty good. Suddenly I was jolted awake by the sound of Bug practicing her flute. It was about a dozen notes and she sounded pretty good. Only one problem... neither kid was home. J-man was with my dad and Bug was at a friend's house.
I asked Carl if he heard it... he was awake and downstairs after all. He didn't. And her flute case was closed and sitting in the downstairs hall.
This morning the kids were getting ready for school. Bug was downstairs with me and J-man was upstairs brushing his teeth, or whatever he does up there. I can't see the stairs completely from where I sit, but I can see if someone comes down them. I saw J-man walk slowly down the steps and heard the soft whispers of his feet on the carpet. I said "What are you doing buddy? Do you need something? You are supposed to be brushing your teeth." From upstairs I hear J-man say "I AM" and you could tell he had the toothbrush in his mouth.
I didn't say a word to either kid, but I KNOW I saw someone or something come down the stairs. And Lily was sitting on the knee wall in our living room looking at "it" too.
I'm not afraid. At all. I'm curious. I want to know if it is Mychael or someone else. I may have to do a small investigation on my own.
