If you’ve seen me lately you probably thought, “She seems tired” If you so thunk, you indeed thunk right. I am very tired. In fact, at the moment I feel so exhausted that the thought of getting up to get a glass of water seems a task too onerous to actually attempt. Why? Squirrels, that’s why! There have been things bumping and scratching around in my attic and walls for a solid week. I called pest control who said the noises were likely squirrels that crawled in to bear young or escape from the cold. Thanks a lot pest control. Now I have to live with the guilt of kicking out poor baby squirrels from the attic. Note to self: Get images of freezing baby squirrels out of head. It’s actually not that difficult to keep from feeling guilty since I read about the damage they can do which just makes my stomach hurt, and results in my surfing the internet for inordinate amounts of time researching all things squirrel. It also keeps me up at night particularly when I can hear the pitter patter of little feet running through the walls. So if you see me around these days and I appear aloof and consuming illegal amounts of coffee, please know that its not you, and its not me- it’s the squirrels.
