Our mattress is haunted. I’m convinced.
This will be a short one because I have SO much going on this week. But this is one of those stories that I can’t make up, meaning I’m obligated to share.
If you don’t believe in ghosts and spirits and things like that, that’s totally cool – but I do. I saw Ghost with Patrick Swayze as a kid and was instantly sold on all things paranormal.
So! Story time!
A month or two ago we bought a new mattress. Long story short, ours was old and just too small. So we bought a brand new King bed and mattress set.
Brand new. Not some sketchy online purchase. A new mattress, in plastic wrap from a mattress store.
I assumed that all plastic wrapped mattresses were guaranteed ghost free.
Ever since then weird stuff has happened when we sleep. Really weird.
One of the first days we had it, I came upstairs to nap. I was asleep on my husband’s side of the bed, lying on my stomach. It was in the evening and I felt someone put their hand on my back, press down and say, “Hey.”
I totally assumed it was Kenz or Sean waking me up for dinner – but no one was there!
Even after I was up, the sensation of someone pressing on my back was still physically there.
I played it up to sleep paralysis – which is scary, but ultimately not that uncommon.
But wait, there’s more!
For the last two nights something has happened with both Sean and I when we sleep. I was woken up by weird noises and sounds and couldn’t get back to sleep on Wednesday night. It was a hollow wind sound, almost like someone breathing. It was such a scary feeling that I felt anxious about falling asleep last night.
Turns out, I slept just fine last night.
Sean on the other hand, said that someone said “Hey Sean” and it woke him up. So he got up, moseyed around the house to check on things and came back to the very haunted bed. Then as he was falling back asleep, the voice said “I told you it’s time to get up.”
Clearly our mattress is haunted by a very maternal figure who doesn’t want us to skip dinner or be late for work. So I’m appreciative.
Or we both have sleep paralysis episodes.
Either way…I’m going to buy some sage and cleanse the house this weekend. Just in case.
I. Can’t. Make. This. Stuff. Up.
Have a great Friday lovelies!
