{ Tired, creepy noises and what is going on? }

January 26, 2016

I am so incredibly tired right now, I don't know how I even got the energy to get my workout done today, but I did it.

Didn't get a chance to come in yesterday for a post, had a busy day organizing and unpacking the last few office boxes, but was also chit chatting back and forth with my sister in law.

By the time I stopped, I had to get dinner in the oven, I just made a simple chicken and potatoes dish, and then cleaned the kitchen, took my shower and took my allergy meds.  I laid down in bed with hubby to watch an episode of our show and within 5 minutes I was fast asleep.  Bummer, I wanted to watch that episode but those little pink allergy pills really pack a whallop at times.

Now where does the tired come in, well, it was one of those nights where Bella was very restless and she got us up quite a few times, and the times we were laying down we weren't able to sleep because she was running around the bedroom whining and wanting company.

To say hubby and I are exhausted this morning, would be a total understatement.  It was definitely one of those mornings where the alarm clock went off and I wanted to smash it Hahaha

But, last night, one of the times she had us up, we found our kids walking around the house quite scared and freaked out.

They both said that around 1:45am they both heard a very loud sound, like the chiming of a grandfather clock that reverberated through the whole house.  My husband and I didn't hear it, and the strange thing is that we don't even own a grandfather clock or a clock of any kind that would make that kind of sound and that loud.

We looked everywhere, and tried to understand where that sound would have come from, but with no luck.  I'm completely confused.

I've talked a little here on the blog, about experiences I've had as a child, where I always felt like I was the target, not my brothers, but me, constantly hounding me and scaring me.  I saw strange things, I felt strange things and I spent most nights wide awake with the lights on, waiting for morning light to come so I could get maybe an hour or two of sleep before having to go to school.

I'm the type of person that if I walk into a house, I can usually tell if something is off.  I haven't felt that in this house at all, and I don't think there's anything here, but there have been a few sounds that we haven't been able to understand and have found quite creepy.

One of the times we were all in the kitchen, me, my husband the two kids.  This was shortly after moving into this house.  We were standing there getting a drink and snacks and talking and the next thing we started hearing what sounded like a musical box or toy going off, but not like the proper sound, more like when the batteries are going.

It played for a few seconds then stopped.  We searched everywhere but couldn't locate where it was coming from, then it did it again.  It happened a few times but we've never heard it again after that day.

The kids bedrooms are on the opposite side of the house to ours, and they have on a few occasions mentioned some sounds that they heard.

I really don't know what is going on, like I said, I haven't felt anything and I don't think there's anything here, but I have a very strong faith and have already asked the Lord to protect us and told whatever it is, or whoever it is, if there's anything here, to leave.

It's one thing to freak me out, but when my children are involved, mama bear is going to come out fighting.

I mean, this is an old house, it was built in 1969, and there are a few thumps here and there, but the chiming the kids heard, they say was loud enough that it drowned out the sound on their laptops.  Not cool, not cool at all!!!

So yeah, a little weird.

Anyway, with all this nightly excitement, I'm exhausted but I haven't let that hold me back, I did my Day 3 workout for today.  I have to tell you that my legs are killing me so bad, but I'm loving it, I think I'm one of the few people who love exercising.

Got the dishes all done, the kitchen clean, laundry going and now I'm going to sit down for a bit before lunch, and watch a show and work on joining my 4th row of my crochet blanket.

Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday :)

I experienced some weird things in my life too - especially when I was younger. I know that you're a family that likes ghost shows (I like those too) and some creepy shows and movies too. My Mom is very spiritual and was even in the convent to be a nun at one point - until she left for awhile and met my Dad. Lol

Anyway, I remember her telling me once that when we watch those kinds of shows/movies we're inviting some of those things into our life. I might watch a ghost hunters here or there, but other than that I never really watch any of that stuff anymore. I don't let me kiddos either and they've never had a problem. Don't know if there's something to that - but maybe ask your kiddos not to watch any of that stuff for a while and see if it makes a difference? Just a thought.

Also, you could have a local clergy person come in and bless your home and see if it helps. I just find paranormal things fascinating. I'm such a cross between very scientific and fascinated - and spiritual like my Mom...and don't know what to think.

Blessings. xoxo

I left you a message about this on your Full Bellies Happy Kids Facebook page. I agree with Carrie B's comment above. :)

Sandra, I debated all day whether or not to comment. I agree with the commenters above. During a dark time in my family I read Victory over the Darkness by Neal Anderson. His ideas were very helpful. Part of the process for me was getting rid of anything that offered any "invitation" for the enemy to have a place in our home and lives. I felt that anything that glorified the demonic needed to go. After that I asked some friends to go with me and we prayed through our home, room by room.

I'll be praying for you and your family and ask the Lord to show you His path for you and that He will protect you with His Spirit. I'm so glad that greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world.

Sandra, are there any big tension power lines out your way? They are known to cause noises like those you mentioned, and it's especially common for the noises to disturb pets. I read about something like that by someone in Taos, NM some time back.
