For the last couple of months we have been experiencing noises in our home. We have never had these noises before. I have wanted to write about this, but feel a little embarrassed to. So now I finally am.
The noises appear to be on my French doors in the kitchen going out to the deck. It always happens at dark and then goes on sporadically all night. Sometimes during the day, but not a lot. It sounds like someone throwing stones at it. The glass makes like a shattering sound. There have been a few times where it is very loud and startles all of us here, even my little dog.
The second sound is awful. A big stomp on the floor that sounds like someone staple gunning wood into place. It is so loud that sometimes we jump if we are in the family room downstairs. Sometimes it sounds like something falls on the floor but everything is in place when checked. This doesn't happen when we are upstairs only downstairs in the family room. What's up with that? Could it be the floor settling?
(1) In May of this year, we put new hardwood flooring into the upstairs except for the kitchen area. My husband and his friend a contractor did it and they used one of those big staple guns. But his friend didn't die, so it's not his ghost!
(2) When I bought an antique coat rack, the noises moved upstairs to the kitchen too. I still get that crackling noise sporadically. Would it be making that loud noise on the floor to scare me too?
I am kind of disturbed about this. It has been bothering me for some time now because I never had this happen in my home before and now it's all of a sudden.
The only time I hear the hardwood floor bang is late at night. When I sleep with the hall light on I don't hear too many noises. My husband is always sleeping but a few times has heard the big stomp on the floor. He said our house isn't haunted to reassure me and keeps the hall light on because he knows it has been bothering me. He hears the windows and doesn't know what to say.
Do you think that the ghost from the antique coat rack came back here to haunt me because it's angry or something. Can this happen? Can something like this follow you back home if it is angry that you got rid of it? Could the antique coat rack have left something behind? I hope not, because that thing was creepy. But these noises are pretty creepy too. I know this sounds kind of crazy, and this is why I am disturbed and embarrassed.
My dog doesn't seem to show any fear only if she is downstairs with me and hears the stomp on the floor above. It startles her and everybody else because it is so loud. She does hear the noises of the glass on the windows in the kitchen and sometimes will look towards it and then will look at me if I am around.
The other day I blessed all of the rooms, especially the living room and haven't heard a big loud stomp on the hardwood floor yet. I was kind of angry because the loud stomp on the floor was so loud. It really bugged me that something would do that. I told whatever it was to leave because it is not welcome in our home. I know it isn't my brother making that big stomp on the floor, I just have that feeling. We didn't hear the big stomp last night either. So it has been a few days now. We still experience the sounds on the windows. Maybe it's the wind blowing.
I would really appreciate any suggestions you might have about this. Maybe it is my imagination and the wood settling on the floor and the wind blowing hitting the windows. Thanks for your help.
