The reason it's all right there in the middle is because that's where the window frame is.

I love being around all you crazies... It makes me accept my craziness even more
And as for the pic, I really do not see an eye, a nose, or a mouth. It is much too distorted to be anything.

No ... definitely not crazy at all. This is one of the most common illusions that affects us all. It's just that the huge increase in photography with modern compact and phone cameras are the cause of this new wave of "illusions" that are confusing our minds. Modern low resolution digital sensors are subject to what is commonly called matrixing, or pixellation when images are taken in low or poor lighting.
Very normal, and so are you.

I think it can be reassuring to hear that something you captured has a mundane explanation. No?
I understand why you thought what you thought, but I must agree with the consensus that this artifact has a non-paranormal explanation. I don't see a face, myself. I do see what appears to be a reflection off the window glass.
I do not claim to be an expert, but I taught photography for 20+ years, and have worked a lot with images, both in the darkroom and digital. I am a firm believer in the paranormal, but have yet to find convincing photographic evidence taken with a digital still camera, especially a lower resolution one.
You're not crazy. You're arriving at conclusions lots of people arrive at. But, it is good to know what kinds of images are explainable and what types of artifacts are frequently mistaken for "ghosts."

Welcome to the board, lovinlizzy25! I'm SpukiKitty. Most of us are spiritual people who are open to the idea of a spiritual reality/ghosts/afterlife and we tend to apply a reasonable skepticism (real skepticism not 'Jame Randi/Pen & Teller' - type 'skepticism') to each claim, photo, recording, etc. Please peruse the boards, enjoy yourself & have fun. We're all friends here & this board is well-regulated and trolls & jerks don't go far, here.

I would say that was definitely your grandpa that turned on the lamp. I don't know what else it could be, unless a really big bug jumped onto the lamp at that exact moment
I had a similar experience after my grandpa passed away in 2006 (I was 17 at the time). I was staying at my grandma's house and had just got into bed. I fell asleep for about three hours, woke up and could not move. Then I saw this "person" coming down the hallway It was too dark to figure out who they were. When they got closer, I realized that it was a younger version of my grandpa (it looked like death took off 20 years). All he did was come to the end of the hallway, look around, and walk back down the hallway. I slept like a baby for the rest of the night.
