I cannot necessarily state that I have seen a ghost in my home, but I have sensed his presence since we moved here. Our home was a complete dump about two to three years before we took possession. The previous owners completely overhauled it and rented it out. That is how we came to reside here and eventually buy the house. Anyways, there has always been ''something'' about the basement. At one point early on, we had a heavy bag down there for my husband to use, and it just started spontaneously swinging back and forth (kind of hard for a draft to do. )

Other times, I have been down in the basement folding laundry when a large heavy bottle of Tide flew off its shelf. We have lots of jackets hanging from the rafters down there, and two of a row of four will start moving as if there is a breeze while the other two will be still. My brother had lived with us for a few years, and his room was of all places in the basement. There were days he would not want to sleep in his room, because he ''felt'' something.
A few years ago, we had contemplated leaving the ever growing crime problems of Burlington and settling in a small town. We were even packing, ready to go. Then, I started having these intense dreams where a man would tell me we cannot leave. The house needed us. It was eerie, but soon after the deal to move fell through, and we have stayed put.

With all this weirdness, my husband held steadfast that I was a loon, and none of this was real. That is until the day he was working out in the basement alone while the kids and myself were out. He said he saw a shadowy figure lurking the basement, not once but several times. It took weeks for him to return to the basement, and he still feels uneasy.

We experience frequent disturbances upstairs around 2:30-3:00 am several mornings a month. There was one occasion I heard one of my daughters calling for me ''Mommy, come here. Mommy!'' I ran to their rooms, and all six of my kids were soundly sleeping. One of the most annoying things we experience is around 2:30 am maybe three times a week. Our computer will turn on spontaneously. (I attribute it to some cycling in the electricity. )

All in all while the little things spook us out, I don't feel a darkness in it. Whatever it is feels like he likes us here, so I suppose we'll continue to ignore the little things and spend some more of our life here.
