I have a couple of odd things that have been happening since we bought this house about 6 years ago. The first has been an off and on occurrence. We
have all seen this, my wife,son, daughter and myself. This past summer I came in through the front door,walked into the kitchen and out of the corner
of my eye, down the hallway, saw what I thought was my wife walk from our bedroom, across the hall, to the bathroom. Thinking it was her, I started
talking to her about something. Getting no answer, I went to the bathroom to see why she wasn't answering. No one there. I went looking for her and
she had been out on the back porch reading. I had been working out front on the roses and she had been out back for at least 20 minutes. This has
happened several times to different members of the family. I'll post the other if any are interested.
Forgot to mention, we were the only ones home at the time, kids were gone.

Reading this story reminds me of the 'woman' I once saw at my mothers house.
One evening I went to visit my mother. We were having a good time and we went on chatting till late at night. Just the two of us. I decided to sleep
over instead of going back to my house. I was always aware of a presence in her house, but I was comfortable with it. It didn't feel like something
nasty. I always made sure though, to announce my presence by making a little bit of noise when I needed to go to the bathroom at night or when I
wanted something from the kitchen.
This is my usual tactics when I am strolling around in the dark, or in an empty house, when I am aware of some presence. Keeping my eyes averted for
some seconds and making some noise, is my way to alert the presence that I am on my way, so I will not be scared by an surprise encounter.
That night, while getting into bed, I suddenly remembered I left my phone in the living room. I jumped from the bed, threw open the bedroom door and
looked straight through the hallway into the living room. To my surprise I saw my mother dancing around the table in the midst of some soft light. She
swayed around with her hands in the air, her long hair flowing, twirling graciously around, smiling happily.
I immediately felt alarmed. The lightness and weirdness of it all, told me it was a spirit. This spirit of my mother dancing, could mean that she was
dead or OBEing.... !
So tentatively I whispered "Mama....?"
My "mama?" scared the woman so much, she twisted around midair with her eyes wide open in shear terror, with her dress and hair flowing madly around
her, before she disappeared like a snuffed candle.
Now i was really spooked, so I bellowed "MAMA!" and threw open the door of my moms bedroom. Who in turns almost falls out of her bed. "Whats wrong?
Whats the matter?" I was so relieved to see her alive, I just stand there staring at her. "I thought I saw you dancing around the dinner table.." I
said a bit shaky. She looked totally bewildered. "What?" So I explained what I just saw a midst a lot of giggling.
We ended up drinking a cup of tea to calm down, while she assured me it was not her OBEing or anything, because she just settled in her bed. I also
realized I thought it was my mother because of the long hair, but that the woman really didn't looked like her. After a while she asked me if I was
ready to go to bed again.
Before I could answer, a loud BANG nearly gave me a heart attack. One of the balloons, still hanging down the ceiling from a party a few days before,
was ruptured. We just sat there staring at it for like a minute, the BANG was followed by a loud CLICK of the video-recorder. Luckily for us, the
adapter of the television was out of the socket, or else it would have made one hell of a noise on an already jumpy night. It was obvious it was some
sort of payback time. So I mentally made my excuses to the woman to have scared her.
We had enough. It was nearly morning as we went to bed, determined not to let anybody keep us awake.
