They're Baaaaaack

It's been a while since I blogged about any strange "events" that took place in my house. Things quieted down for a while, so I assumed that my invisible friends had realized that stalking my life really was a waste of time. (I mean, really, how much fun is it to watch me fold laundry?) Anyway - if you are unaware of my previous events, read HERE and HERE before continuing on. It'll make a lot more sense.

Done reading? Good.


Every morning, we wave goodbye to Rob out of the front window. It's been a little family tradition since Maddie was a baby. This morning, we finished our goodbyes, I pulled down the shade, and started to hear a beeping noise. I immediately knew that the microwave was being turned on. I looked around and saw that all three kids were still with me, so I hurried into the kitchen. Nothing in the microwave, but 8 minutes on the timer. I walked over and canceled the time. As soon as I turned my back, numbers were being pressed again. I quickly turned around and once again turned off the microwave. As I walked away - it happened a third time. I finally walked over and said (out-loud...yes, feel free to laugh) "STOP IT! This isn't your house - don't do it again!" And it stopped.

For most of the day the microwave behaved itself. But mid afternoon, when it started up again - I decided it was time to get out the camera. As I set up the camera, the microwave once again turned on.


Oh, and you're not seeing things. There is a skull sticker on our microwave. Rob put it there. Probably to remind me every day that the microwave is haunted. He's so thoughtful.



I could be wrong, but generally you don't see that kind of behavior in a major appliance. No?

Melissa! How do you stand it! We have a ghost too, but so far he's been nice. He kissed me on the cheek once.

I just spent almost 4 minutes staring at your microwave....
KA-REE-PEE!!! I'd immediately toss it in the trash, get a new one, and if it's still happening, move out. But that's just me. Good luck :)

Hmm... That is quite possibly the creepiest thing I've ever heard. I'm thinking I should have waited until morning to read this. If my lights turn themselves on tonight or if my microwave starts itself, I might move!

Weird, weird, weird-creepy-weird! We have an older computer that we never turn on anymore, but every once in a while it will turn itself on, and it did it again just last night! I'm sending this little imp back to your house--I don't want him!

Very creepy but you could make millions selling that video to Paranormal shows or even Samsung'g competitors to show the malfunction of their product.
