It's been awhile since I've submitted anything about the activity in our home. There have been things on and off but nothing major until this week.
Wednesday night, 5/06/15, I had the beginnings of a migraine so I went to my room to lay down from 6:00 pm and 8:00 pm. From my bed I could see straight through to the living room. My son was on the computer; my daughter and grandson were not home. As I'm lying there, I glance up and see a woman leaning over the baby gate, which is between the kitchen and laundry room. The woman appeared elderly judging by her whitish colored hair. She had on a red shirt with small white designs on it, maybe flowers or something. I saw her right arm extended over the baby gate, as if reaching for something near the floor. After acknowledging to myself that I saw someone, I blinked my eyes and she was gone.
Sometime later, around 9:15, I considered maybe what I thought I saw I didn't really see. The blinds in my home are light colored, cream/off white. My tablecloth is red and the napkins on my kitchen table are white. All of this is within my range of sight, so I figured my eyes just created the image of a woman leaning over the baby gate. Couldn't come up with anything to explain her right arm, but what the heck LOL. (Here is the link for a picture I took a night or so later. Exact same scenario, except no ghost.

On and off for hours that night I heard voices, which I attributed to the TV. I had my fan on in the bedroom and when I'd hear voices, I would turn it off. I didn't hear the voices then, so I assumed either what was I was hearing before was no longer happening on the TV or my fan was making the voices. I know my fan can cause musical noise, depending upon the speed and where it is sitting. But my fan has been in this same position for a few weeks and I'd not heard anything like this. Still, the voices could be the fan and/or TV.
Thursday afternoon during the day, my daughter went out back the backdoor to smoke. The backdoor is in the laundry room. When she came back in, she set her cigarettes and lighter on the freezer which is in the laundry room. As she was getting ready to leave, she picked up her cigarettes and lighter and realized that was not the lighter she had when she went out to smoke. Not the light she set on the freezer.
Prior to this she felt our cat rub up against the back of her legs in the laundry room. Assuming he wanted out, she turned to open the backdoor; no cat. Glancing into the living room, she saw he was sitting on the couch. My daughter told me she heard voices throughout the day, the backdoor opened and shut several times by itself which she tried to convince herself was due to wind.
That night my daughter went to a friend's house. I knew she'd be out late so I wasn't concerned. At 2:23 am (looked at my alarm clock) I heard a car door shut, our living room door open, felt and heard her footsteps going through the living room to the kitchen and back toward her room.
At 5:15 I get up, take my grandson to his mommy. As I passed the living room door, I didn't bother with my routine of checking the lock on the door to see if it was in the locked position because I knew she was home. (My son and I don't lock the living room door when my daughter is out. She locks it when she gets home.) I got to her bedroom, but she wasn't in there. I looked out the hallway window and her car was not there. Anyone who has ever lived in a trailer knows the sound/feel of someone walking. Unmistakable for anything else.
I'm honestly not sure if this is relevant or not, but figured I'd throw it out here for consideration. A few weeks ago I bought 4 used lawn chairs and some used (brand new condition) towels from a woman. This woman said they were downsizing and didn't need them. A few days ago I had to consider (thanks to Facebook) that these items belonged to a woman who had passed away.
We've had activity prior to this. In March my daughter was locked out two different days when she went outside. We've heard voices, my bedroom door was opened during the night when the kids where in their beds and the cat was outside. The living room door was locked during the night when I didn't lock it before going to bed, and my grandbaby and I were the only ones home. I also felt someone blowing cool air on my head while I was in bed.
All of this has occurred within the past few months. None of these events are frightening to me or my son. They do freak my daughter out a bit though LOL.
