Years ago....about 8...we had recently moved into my husband's best friend's house. We were having some financial difficulty and they were beginning
a business together. He was a mortgage broker and had just bought a huge huge house. So, he invited us to live with him, while we rented our house
out..just till the business got off its feet. (Which, thankfully it did and is still going, and....we are back in our own home!) anyway....it was a
brand new house, not sure if it was built on top of anything in the ground, but I had a habit of falling asleep on the couch downstairs with the tv
on. I just did not like the idea of going up to bed in this huge 6 bedroom house, woods all around us, being in there alone, just me and my 2 year
So I would always go to sleep on the couch and wait for the the guys to come home from work. On this particular night, they were going out for drinks
after. I had just fallen asleep, and someone was calling my name softly and shaking my shoulder. I totally thought it was one of them to wake me up.
Imagine my surprise when I look to the back of the couch and see..absolutely no one! I then thought, maybe it was my 2 year old? I got up..looked all
around, no one there.
But I could still feel it, thats how real it was....someone definitely shook my shoulder and called my name...softly. So, I then got a bit freaked out
and slowly made my way to all the doors downstairs... ...the laundry room had a door that lead to the side garage...locked. the kitchen had 2 seperate
doors that went to two seperate porches...locked...the basement door....locked...other garage door..locked....front door? not only was it unlocked? it
was left opened a crack.
It was a heavy door and I was forever forgetting to make sure I pushed it closed. Well, this time it happened to be around 1am...and here I was in a
500k house, with the front door unlocked, opened. I might as well have placed a sign that said "robbers welcome!" so...stranger? The next morning we
had police cruisers all up and down our street, turned out, one of the houses on our street has in fact been broken into.
