I moved into a house on E. Isabella in May of 2010. My youngest was a little over a year at the time, so he couldn't crawl up the steps to the upstairs or get into the kitchen. I had decided to make baby gates with plywood and hinges and used hook locks to keep them shut. They were installed within a day of living there. One night about a week after we moved in I was up alone reading a book. Out of the corner of my eye the hook lock on the gate blocking the second floor unlock itself. I tried explaining it away. I told myself that it must not have been locked right or something. Just as I was convinced there was a logical reason it did that, the damn thing picked itself up and swung the other way towards the little part it hooked into to lock it (the eye. )
I'm 30 years old at the time -- a grown woman. I ran to my room and slept with the light on. I never said anything to the kids or my father who was living with me at the time. I had a friend over a few nights later and was having a bonfire and decided I was brave enough to tell him what happened. He gave me this ''yeah right'' sort of look, and right then my oldest son came outside and said to us ''the lock on the gate in the living room just unlocked itself on its own. '' All I could do was smile and say ''see? I am not crazy!'' That house had many infestations while I lived there such as fleas, fruit flies, bats, and mice.
I'm not talking a small issue. I'm talking a bat or two in my house every single night for two weeks. (Mice by the hundreds) I've set a dozen or so traps and have to empty three or four within the first five minutes. The fruit flies were so bad; they were in every single room of the house in the middle of winter, no less and were in the hundreds. They would wake you up at all hours buzzing in your face. I went on one hell of a cleaning frenzy and could not locate the source. Nothing I did seem to work. I walked through the house with a can of Raid and sprayed my walls all day long. They seemed to rest on the walls. With a house as clean as it was, I couldn't understand why that was even happening. Some things I understood but never put two and two together until I was forced out. The house caught fire. That in itself was scary.
I had a wood picture of Jesus I found at a yard sale up on this shelf by the back door. This picture didn't have any hooks or spot that allowed you to hang it, so I sat it on this shelf. I had this picture and shelf before I moved into that house. I put that picture of Jesus on it at the house before that one and never had any issues. But this house the picture seem to fall off and down the basement steps. I would find it face down on the basement floor constantly. I got so mad about it that I put it in a box down there with unpacked stuff, so it wouldn't get wrecked. That was not until the house caught fire and we moved that I realized something had to have knocked it off the shelf. I didn't notice until then either that there were scratches all over Jesus' face too. It was rather unsettling to think about. I heard and saw many things in that house. Like I said, it caught fire but it didn't burn down. It just burned enough that we had to move, so it could be fixed. It was deemed unlivable by the city until it was repaired properly and passed an inspection.
