Having convinced self was being an idiot, I tried putting kids down for nap back in the bedroom yesterday.

Cue all aforementioned noises, and then the worst thing ever: distinct whisper, a girl's voice I think, saying, "Where is he? I can't find him."

Am ashamed to record that for half a second I froze, unable to move. Then I remembered that my babies were down that hall, in the room with WHATEVER THE HELL THAT WAS, and I bolted down to rescue them. Nothing visible in room, of course. Grabbed baby and toddler, waking the latter (who was crabby all day as a result), and resettled them in the living room with me. Unplugged the damned monitor.

Will be camping in the living room every day that my husband isn't home. Time until removalists arrive and we relocate to a hotel, then move altogether, cannot come fast enough.

Have succeeded in scaring self half to death. Better than dying of boredom, I suppose, but would rather not do either.

Day before yesterday, had just managed to get kids to sleep (baby in crib in our bedroom; toddler in our bed in same room, because it's easier to do that than argue with him every day) and was sitting in living room, trying to write, when baby monitor disturbed me. Faint sounds of movement, nothing major. Crept down hallway as silently as possible, in case baby was merely stirring but not really awake, but both children still asleep.

Returned to living room: several minutes of silence, then static and the distinct sound of someone walking around in bedroom. Raced down hall to grab toddler before he could wake baby: both children still asleep.

Repeat of this yesterday, with added whispering noises that gave me the freaking creeps.

Today? Baby is sleeping in bassinet in living room. Toddler is napping on bed made up of the cushions form the other sofa. Baby monitor is off.

The worst thing is, I keep thinking I still hear noises from down the hall.

If we weren't moving anyway soon, when we reach the end of our lease, would be trying to find some way to break the lease. Am being driven mildly insane by noises of someone walking around in the attic. Problem: this is a one-story house with no attic. Also the roof is a sheet of corrugated tin; no possible way this could produce distinctive noises of footsteps on wooden floor.

It mostly happens in the early afternoon when the kids are napping. Have also heard it when I'm awake at night. Have tried waking husband to get him to listen to it, but he's groggy and uninterested when I point it out.

What the hell is it? Is something living in the space between the ceiling and the roof? D:
