so I just need a record of what’s been going on.
Starting with Valentine’s Day, I wanted to get into the spirit of the day by wearing red. I went to look for some festive earrings and my jewelry box was passed down from my mother in law (who is now deceased). I have owned the jewelry box for more than ten years at this point. As, I was picking out a pair of earrings, music began. It has never played music in the entire time I have owned it. it has a turn key at the bottom, but I can not remember the last time I even tried out the turn key. It is tall, thin with glass doors and getting to the turn key while it is full of jewelry is not easy (like when directions are on the bottom of food trays) So it played music for me. When I went for my phone to record it, it stopped. I found it strange but didn’t think anything more of it. I tried to shake it, move it to get it to play again but it wouldn’t. I did not try the turn key for the reason stated above.
while mine does not have a ballerina, and is actually tall and thin with glass doors (which makes a turnkey at the bottom severely impractical) it is no less creepy
Two days later, my significant other woke up with a pain in his side. They thought they were possibly sleeping on top of something in the bed but upon further inspection, there was a scratch. A mark, a distinctive “X” on the upper stomach area on the right side. Another scratch slightly next to it, possibly in the shape of a lower case “b”. Strange, but just a scratch, even though it was deep enough to still be painful and red twelve hours later.
we do not have a sloth. we do own two dogs, it would have been noticeable had they jumped on the bed to scratch 🙂
Two nights after this, I woke up about 3:30 AM. I had placed a large LED flashlight on the floor, next to the bed following a blizzard and when I awoke it was on. This is no wimpy flashlight, some pressure has to be placed on the bottom in order to turn it on and off. After this, I was up for an hour at least. In the space of five days, this all seemed a bit much.
for the record, I may have welcomed the Winchester brothers being attached to the flashlight. This one is a massive commercial use one though, so my flashlight is much larger than Dean’s.
We had been unloading a lot of old boxes that had been packed up but not sorted through and were finding lots and lots of beautiful old items. We have lived here for over a year with no issues (other than the weird Furby incident last March). So what was going on?
So I mention it to my significant other, they tell me about a time when they were in the backyard doing yard work without their glasses. (who does that??) And they kept thinking they saw someone watching them. It turned out to be a shadow, but they consistently thought that they were being watched from the same position. They tell me this right before bed time… Like I needed that.
Then when day, we had people here and my S.O. was talking to me. They laughed about a kid hiding in our room, playing Hide and Seek. When they went to look, the kid ran past me the other way. They came back, and insisted they saw the child run into our room wearing a white shirt but it was a navy shirt and they had never gone into our room.
maybe we were victims of a cloning experiment
We have no answers, yet. I have noticed a few other things, but I am not sure if they are my own forgetfulness or not. Such as the dryer being on, when I don’t remember turning it on. Or boxes being put in the wrong place or items being moved or out of order, but I’m not sure if someone used them. Sometimes there are strange sounds, mostly loud bangs, usually only one or two at a time, that are too loud to be the house settling, but unsure how to pinpoint where they are coming from. Of course, when we stop and try to listen or locate, they stop.
I just needed this to be here for a record. I will update if necessary.
