I Think My House Might Actually Be Haunted
Have you ever lived in a haunted house? About 25 percent of Americans say they've lived in or currently feel like they live in a haunted house.
I'm not necessarily a believer in all of that stuff, but I can't deny that I've had some weird things happen in my home that I can't actually explain.
Most recently, I was home alone getting ready for work. My son's remote control car was laying on the floor in the bathroom. I was making my bed and I kept hearing a weird sound coming from the bathroom. I couldn't figure out what it was. So, naturally, I went to investigate.
When I got to the bathroom the silence was loud. It was so strangely quiet that I questioned whether I had even heard anything to begin with. I thought I must be going completely bonkers. But, then it happened.
I saw his remote control car drive out from behind the shower curtain and went behind the toilet. I didn't completely freak out because I thought that there was an obvious explanation. I went into his room to find the controller. I mean something must have been triggering the button, right?! I walked into the dark room, flipped on the light, and looked around with suspecting eyes to find the culprit. All at once, I felt my heart jump into my throat when I saw the controller sitting in the middle of the floor with NOTHING touching it.
Normally, I'd chalk this up as faulty technology, but it's not the only thing that has been happening.
A few months ago I was getting ready for bed. My husband was gone and my son was sound asleep, tucked into his crib.
I shut off the light, crawled in bed and shut my eyes. Just as I was about to doze off, I was jolted out of bed by the sound of the Mickey Mouse Club House theme song. The song was as loud as my weekday alarm clock, and I frantically tried to figure out where it was coming from in fear that my son was going to wake up before I could turn it off.
I ran to his room thinking it had to be one of his toys. Nope, I was wrong. The sound grew quiet the closer to his room I got. I realized the noise was coming from inside of my room. I ran back, turned on every light including my bedside lamps and realized the music was coming from my husband's old smart phone that we sometimes let our son play on.
The phone had opened up the YouTube App and started an episode of Mickey Mouse Club House all on its own. I shut the phone off completely and called my husband to tell him what had happened.
Prior to those two events, there was another incident that happened where I was convinced someone broke into our home. I had heard our entryway closet door shut. My husband was working that night and I figured he'd just gotten home. I waited for him to come up the stairs but to my surprise, he didn't. I called down to him and still heard nothing.
So, I called his phone. I could immediately tell that he wasn't home and I was terrified. I thought for sure someone was in hour house. When Dave got home, he checked out the whole house and found nothing.
So, I'm starting to think that maybe my house has an uninvited guest. Do you think you're living in a haunted house? Share your story with me in the comments below.
