I told you I'd be back

I'm afraid to go upstairs.

I'm hearing noises.

Here's the backstory:

A couple months ago I was trying to go to sleep and kept hearing this faint scratching sound. It really sounded like it was coming from inside my room. After tearing my room apart and not finding the source of the offensive noise I listened closer. It was coming from the attic...

Squirrels!

The damn creatures had dug a hole through the wood behind my gutter and were building a spring home in my attic.

So I got a carpenter (Lester) out to assess the damages, he gave me an estimate and told me he'd be back the next week to fix it.

Wrong

In the meantime I have gone into the attic to put the screens in. And my genius self left the attic door open.

And now I'm hearing noises.

If I wake up in the middle of the night with a squirrel on my face - you'd better sleep with one eye open, Lester.

OH NO!!!! Ask DaisyDuc or I to tell you about our FAMILY of squirrels in our house junior year of college! Good times....

Hey, I have to do a long run on Friday afternoon--would love company for part of it--have no idea what your work schedule's like but maybe you can join for some? :)

Oh boy, squirrels in our college house. After hearing noises they fixed the roof and mama squirrel could not get back in...however it was not problem solved. Baby squirrels remained which we caught in a cage. The first babies we caught were so cute and friendly at the beginning on the week. But the last of the babies we caught by the end were just hungry and mean! They are kind of cute though!
