A Minor Set Back

So, last night I had a set back in my progress of staying alone in a "haunted" house.  I was doing so well too, just the night before I was applauding myself for being such a trooper. 
After my first week alone, the hubbs and I took some action to help me feel more comfortable here while he was flying, and it really seemed to help out.  Every time he flew after that, I had no problems what so ever.  I did my normal night time routine before bed and slept soundly at night.  The dogs kept there normal routine too.  I didn't allow them to sleep upstairs with me anymore after that first week. 
Well, last night the pups and I were hanging out downstairs, when we all started to hear noises coming from upstairs.  Now, I know it wasn't my mind playing tricks on me because the dogs heard the noises too.  I tried to brush it off.  I kept telling myself that there was nothing going on that it was probably our neighbors or something.  Well, a few minutes later, we all heard more noises, but louder and a bit creepier.  Ugh.  So, I picked up the phone and called the hubbs.  I knew he would be able to calm me down. 
Here's how the conversation went down.
*Ring Ring*
Hubbs- Hello
Sarah- Hey, um... are you still driving?  Like is everyone around you right now?
Hubbs- Yeah... why?
Sarah-  Ummmm, ok.  So, don't say anything out load, because I don't want everyone to think I am crazy or anything, but... I am hearing things again.  Like, really, I am.  And the dogs are hearing the noises too.  Eeek!  Hubbs, I am freaking out!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hubbs- Sarah, I can't talk right now.  I am driving a 15 passenger van on the interstate and it is pouring down rain.  Can you call me back in like 30 minutes?
Sarah- Seriously?
HubbsBrian- Yeah. 
Sarah- Brian, I am freaking out right now!  I need you to calm me down!  Please!
Hubbs- Sarah, I have got to go.  Call me in 30 minutes.  Ok?  Kloveyoubye!
So, what did I do?  I picked up the phone, called my Meme {my grandmother}, took the gate down that blocks the dogs from going upstairs, grabbed the biggest knife I could find, and then me, the dogs, Meme, and my knife headed up the stairs.  {I know what you are thinking.  Sarah, you are an idiot.  How the heck is a knife going to protect you from a ghost?  Well, it's all I could come up with.}
After I had checked every single nook and cranny of the upstairs, I decided the dogs would be sleeping upstairs with me.  So, I grabbed their beds, got the dogs all situated in my room, and tried to fall asleep.  Right before I drifted off, I looked over at the dogs laying on their beds to make sure they were ok.  Sure enough, they were fast asleep.  I eventually fell asleep... 
I woke up to something to this morning that is a BIG NO-NO in my house.

"Well, Good Morning to you Bear, you little stinker!
I am glad that you enjoyed sleeping in my bed last night.
Please, don't let me disturb you."
