I'm trying to stay mentally positive as much as I can, a few days ago I had a bizarre dream about gnomes... something like I was driving with a couple friends in the car, and there was a gnome on the side of the road. I mentioned it to them and they laughed and didn't believe me, and refused to look back. Whenever I start feeling that way I just have to root myself in my activities to keep focused and not start thinking too much about things I can't control.
Today I was outside and heard like what I would call a "squeak" or some vocalization, but it struck me as being different than normal animal sounds like squirrels. I was in the driveway and heard it two or three times, and it's tough to know the direction when you can't see through the trees. It probably lasted a total of 10-15 seconds and that was the end of it. Every time I hear something like that I get shivers because I know something is there but I can't see it, and something about it is just off..that's the only way I know how to explain the feeling. Much like the old fashioned "It's quiet...yea, too quiet" sensation.
I wish I could predict this stuff each time it happened so I could be sitting there with a recording device, but obviously that's impossible. It can be frustrating nonetheless.
I'm thinking of the next most logical step to take in dealing with this, whether it's trying to collect more video and audio, or interaction again..hopefully not where my items get stolen. Next time I leave something out I'm going to be securing it somehow.
