    I find that apparitions always leave when you cut a really bad one. Usually it clears the house of the living AND the dead.

    I was just thinking a couple of days ago that we haven't had an update on this thread in a while. I'm sure that had something to do with it.

    I was just up in the attic. Heard Mrs69 start to come up the attic stairs (bare wood). A very distinctive sound. I stopped what I was doing and looked over, expecting to see her.

    Nope. She was in the living room and hadn't moved from the couch.

    I'm of the mind that I could be hearing something else that's similar, and my brain is associating it with a pattern that it knows. I can't imagine what it would be. I've been in this house for over 6 years, and I know the sounds it makes. This was the sound of someone taking three steps up the attic stairs.

    One more for the unexplained category.

    and that's the rub. A rational mind trying to make sense of irrational events happening over and over. At a certain point you say "I can't explain the stuff I am experiencing so I am either seeing / hearing stuff or I've lost my mind"

    This morning my daughter came running downstairs screaming. She was terrified - shaking and crying. She had been in her room playing the piano. She said all of a sudden she felt a presence behind her. She turned around and saw a dark figure. That's when she shrieked and got up and ran. She said it followed her out of her room and down the hall.

    She was scared, and on the way to school very quiet. She was usually very talkative.

    OK, I'll admit that I watch those silly Haunted shows on cable. My wife makes fun of me. The kids say 'its fake'. I'm not deterred.

    One thing they do on these shows which seems to help is get the house blessed, or do a cleansing using a smoking bundle of sage. Maybe try that. Or move.

    What's up with those things anyway?

    My sister and I used to scare the crap out of ourselves with the ouija board when we were kids.

    The weird things don't seem to happen all that often, maybe once every couple of months, but they are getting weirder and harder to explain.

    You should get one of those ghost hunters shows to come in. You could maybe make a few bucks on the undead living in your house.

    Why though? Who says it's "bad"? If there are spirits, give them a way to communicate. They won't be so restless anymore.

    The last thing I need is for my kids to go to school and talk about using one at home. Those hyper religious people would blow their collective gasket

    Those religious people talk to ghosts all the time. At least the Ouija board lets the ghosts respond.

    Think of how sick to death they must be of all the one-sided conversations.

    She's also been seeing (repeatedly) a low white figure or thing or light or something crossing through the kitchen. I've seen that and so has Mrs69. It's definitely not headlights from a car.

    We've also been repeatedly hearing a thump on the stairs, like a footfall of someone starting to descend.

    This stuff has gotten more frequent all of a sudden, and a little more strange.

    If this gets any more intense, I'm going to think hard about conducting some sort of scientific data collection - electromagnetic and temp at least, maybe infrared, over time at regular intervals. Not like the stupid ghost hunter shows mind you, but rather trying to record what is obviously some sort of physical phenomena. If it can be seen and heard, it can be recorded and analyzed. I find this stuff interesting, as hell.
    I'd forgotten about something. I was fortunate enough to be at the top of the stairs when mrs69 heard the footfall. I heard it too at it was only a couple feet away. Sounded to me like the kind of crack you hear when the house was settling. Came from the top step. Interesting how the sound changes depending on where in the house you hear it. I had heard it several times from the living room.

    my daughter watched a shadow come down the stairs and go around the corner

    Girl69 slept in her room last night. She had the light on, but she was ok with it. That's good for her. My son won't go near his room. Last time we tried to make him sleep there he was terrified.

    The funny thing is, there's no history in this house that one could point to as a potential explanation. It was built in 1972, we are the second owners, the previous owners had one son, and all three made it out of here alive :-). No dead relatives or anything.

    Well if it is a spirit it obviously has no bad intentions, it's had this long and hasn't harmed anyone, I would guess it's comfortable enough with you all to show itself a bit more. Celebrate and open up to it some. What was on the property prior to 1972?
