I definitely recommend a police walk-through sometime in the near future.  It is a service that our hard working, trained professional officers are able to offer the public.  Not only are they out there chasing bad guys, but they’re also available to help us prevent occurances with them, too.  I don’t think it’s a bad idea, even if nothing strange is going on, because they can quite possibly find something you never thoughtt twice about.  Peace of mind can go a long way…

I was thinking of you before bed last night, OP.  I hope all is well on your end and that you were able to sleep.  As someone who recently relocated out of a nice area-turned reaaaaally bad, I vividly recall many nights where I was afraid to be in my home alone (with my very young daughter).  DH works the night shift and I often called him home early because of certain happenings in the parking lot.  Our story is a bit different, but the feelings I’m sure are similar.  I wish you the best and please keep us updated!

Do you have a home alarm system?

Because there is nothing like peace of mind, let me tell you. I lived alone for a long time in a house and I couldn’t have done it. I imagined things, my heart lept at sounds, etc.

In fact, if you live near a sexual predator, you really need one or you’ll always freak out. My cousin lives near a sexual predator and has a young mentally handicapped daughter at home. It’s what allows her to feel comfortable leaving her home with a sitter or her older sister.

Whoa. I got the chills reading this. I’m so sorry that you’re having to deal with this! Hang in there, doll… And I agree with everyone else… If you can, invest in an alarm system or a nanny cam. Good luck! I’ll be sending you some positive thoughts.

Just wondering, do you think these things that have been happening because of somebody breaking and entering or do you think it is some type of paranormal thing?

Ahh, your entry is giving me chills too! However, I think you’re doing exactly what I would do, and are getting worked up over nothin’.

 

First step? Check under your fridge for the magnet. If it’s a new magnet that you just put up, then it’s very likely that it fell off and rolled under the fridge! I’ve had magnets finally succumb to their own weight and fall off days after putting them up.

 

The shade could have rolled up on its own, especially if someone knocked into it.

 

The bear was probably put there by your or your Fiance and you just can’t remember doing it. If you’re anything like me, then it happens sometimes!

I think the suggestions that have been made about calling the police or installing an alarm system are completely appropriate. For whatever reason these things are occurring, there are two facts that remain: you have young children and there is a sex offender in your neighborhood. You should do whatever possible to help you feel safe.

pinkmonkee- Maybe I’ve just been watching too many episodes of Ghost Hunters but that was my first thought, too.  I don’t know how a person would break in, put a bear in the crib, break in again to put up a shade in the bedroom, and then break in AGAIN to steal a magnet, all without being caught, or leaving some evidence of a break-in, (not to mention taking nothing of value).  Again, maybe I’m watching too much Ghost Hunters, (I also watch Animal Planet’s The Haunted and a couple other similar shows), but that sounds more like the work of a spirit than a person to me!

I know this is gonna sound dumb..but did you look under the fridge for the magnet? I had a brand new one and it broke and fell off…and rolled up the fridge..! I’m sure you’re freaked out by all this…I would be too..especially if I was tired and stressed out…just check all the doors and locks on windows, then have a glass of wine!

Ok, not to be an alarmist, but please trust your instincts and gut if you feel unsafe in your home!

I second everyone’s suggestion about having some cops just be present in your home for a moment. If it’s someone in the neighborhood, they’ll probably be spooked by your clear awareness and heightened sense of alert. And, as others have pointed out, it will put you more at ease. I wouldn’t go overboard, but if something inside of you is telling you something is wrong, always trust it!

I’d second everything the lovely Bees have said, go with your gut, have the place checked out- and a motion activated nanny cam will really put your mind at ease, I don’t think they’re too terribly expensive for the peace of mind they provide.

I second what everyone else has said about getting the police in to do a walk through. In this situation you can’t be too careful. I don’t want to freak you out but I saw an episode of Oprah where a girl was coming home to her apartment and finding things out of place. She eventually had a camera installed and it turned out her neighbour was letting himself into her house and trying on her underwear when she was out. Freaky. All I’m saying is trust your gut and don’t feel silly for asking for advice from the police. I’m sure there’s a perfectly logical explanations for most of what’s happened but when you’ve got babies you’ve gotta do what you need to to feel safe – especially given that there’s a sexual predator in your area. Goodluck!!!

Just curious if the OP has had any more strange stuff, or if the mystery has been solved! 🙂

Wether you believe in this stuff or not, I’m a Psychic. Not that I’m showing off. I can get vibes/visions from people, even online. So far, things look good. I don’t think anything else should happen. Although if I had your birthdate, I could get a better vibe. I will send positive vibes towards you. Just in case call the police.
