Ok now I believe in ghosts. I don't feel anything creepy in this house and I havent seen anything. I was just thinking that he didnt want to have to go to bed. (I remember being 8 and being a little afraid of the dark and stuff.)
Weird things have begun happening that I am finding more difficult to explain. About a month ago, I had three sticks of butter still in the butter box on top of my microwave anticipating making cookies (first floor). I went to grab some and noticed that about half of the butter was melted. I grumbled and blamed it on the microwave thinking maybe it was begginning to malfunction and that we'd have to buy a new one. this has been the location of my butter before and after this experience and it hasnt happened again.
Then this week I came home to find a puddle of butter on my kicthen floor (first floor). A big puddle, about 2 square feet. At first my son thought it was cat pee but the cat was outside. Upon cleaning it up i noticed the consistency was just like melted butter, it had that melted butter look and a vague butter smell. So I am cleaning it up assuming this is butter. Then I noticed that even if a stick (or 4 given the size) of butter were to find its way onto my floor (not near any windows or doors) and were to find a way to melt (our regular use butter in its wrapper on the kitchen table didnt melt even though it was about 2 tablespoons), wouldnt the wrappers be there to be picked up? I checked the ceiling and everything but cannot explain the butter.
So last night I go home and unlock the doors to find my portable phone (in the kitchen first floor) sounding the fast signal that shows its been off the hook for awhile. I figured that my husband must have left it on before he left. I go to work at 8:30. My husband goes to work at 9. The caller id shows that calls came through atleast until 11:15am. I came home at 5:30. The doors were locked and no one was home. The cats were even locked outside.
Does this sound haunted? I feel like I'm losing my mind...
