Furry Friends

I'm back! The lovely cable man set up our high speed internet and VOI unlimited local and longdistance phone today (super steal...$40/month for BOTH...check out comcast if they're in your area!) and I could've just 'bout kissed him! (Don't worry. I didn't!)

We closed on Friday. A ton of fabulous people helped us clean and move on Saturday. And I'm proud to say that I have everything unpacked and put away except for like two boxes!!!

This house is amazing! We love it! We are so grateful! When the busy day settles, the babe is in bed and silence spreads through the house as we ease onto the couch we still look at eachother in disbelief and say, "Pinch me" ! And yes...the gian tub has been tested and proven fabulous!

The only excitement to speak of started up just as we nestled in to sleep our first night here. There are alwasy new noises to get used to in a new home...creaks and groans, the furnace and water pipes etc. But this...this was different. It was apparent that we had some furry friends sharing our lovely abode. To be more specific...squirrels...in the celing between the 1st and 2nd floor! They were havin' a good old time ALL NIGHT LONG. They sounded like a herd of squeeky, chirping antelope running around on my head! We bought a trap but then hadn't heard them since. We figured with the new noise of people living there, they decided to move on. Until last night...
As I lay snuggled up with Jason on the couch watching the Mens halfpipe final (no one can even touch Shawn White by the way!) something caught my attention. Out of the corner of my eye I saw a little movement...I thought....maybe I'm just paranoid...Ohp, Nope...there's a little squirel head, pushing past the insulation and peeking into our living room through the woodstove hook up pipe!!!!

I couldn't even find words. I think it went like this..."JASON! JASON! JASON!" (as I point frantically toward the pipe) "THERE'S A... THERE'S A...THERE'S A..." (more frantic pointing) "LOOK! LOOK! LOOK!" (He finally figures out what I'm talking about since I was SO very clear about it!) He jumped up, and scared it back up the pipe and duct taped it shut. We both had a good laugh. I think we'll set those traps up now.

OH MY WORD!! Squirrels can make things quite interesting, as my family can attest. Some day, you'll have to ask my mom or Michelle about it, you will probably pee your pants! Hopefully the traps solve the problem.

It is so good to see you back online and hear that you are all settled in, happy & content!! Squirrels can do alot of chewing damage. I hope you get rid of them quickly, as spring brings new babies. Can't wait to see you all next weekend!!
