I've been a bad blogger and have gone MIA for too long. I have so many updates they're falling out my ears at this point. I've got a post about a recent (sorta) investigation with MRIPA that I'll get to later, and maybe a rant if I feel like it, but right now, I can give you quite a bit to read just by covering the most recent activity at the apartment.
We're not sure if it's due to a wet winter, or talk of moving out of the house, or if something has just changed, but the house has been fairly active lately. Nothing huge but lots of little stuff that just doesn't seem to quit. It all started up around when we returned from Florida and hasn't really quit.

The kitchen still seems to be the epicenter of all the activity we have. Everything from voices, to the sounds of things moving when we're in the other room, to phantom cats. On several occasions we've heard cats meow when George was asleep or in one case not even in the house. I swear I saw a cat jump off my bathroom sink one night while I was in the kitchen; It disappeared before it hit the floor, but I heard it land. Rick told me a few days later that he had seen the image of a dark, long haired cat walking through the kitchen, reflected in the microwave door. He said when he turned around there was nothing there.
Just last night, I was sitting in the living room when I smelled a cinnamon-y, potpourri scent. We have some Febreeze air freshener that smells about the same, but I didn't spray any, and the cat and I were the only ones home at the time.
We've also had some non-paranormal issues that have been keeping us up at night. There seems to be raccoons everywhere on the property. They've been fighting in the courtyard and scratching around on our porch I even saw one climbing up the 2nd floor balcony to the roof. I don't want to go out and deal with them, so whenever I hear them fighting, I just blow my vuvuzela and that scares them away.
