as i’ve mentioned already, we’re visiting my bff and her family this week.
they live in the woods.
ok, not really, but you’d think so after reading about our escapades.
since we’ve been here i now have not one but 2 stories about uninvited guests.
the first night we got here we transferred our sleeping kids into their beds. silas is sharing a room with us, so we just layed him down on our bed.
as i am walking out the door of his/our room to go unload the car, i see our first uninvited guest standing at our bedroom doorway.
an itty bitty teeny mouse.
but still… A MOUSE!!!
so i freak out and yelp as quietly as i can so i don’t wake all 7 of the sleeping babes,
then ohsobravely run in and swoop up sleeping silas so he doesn’t get eaten by the mouse.
i may get a little dramatic when rodents are involved.
so the 2 menfolk go into the room.
lots of banging and crashing ensues.
then they come out laughing.
they didn’t even have to catch the mouse in the end.
turns out they scared it so bad that it just croaked on its own!
maybe had a little heart attack or something!
(sorry if you are a rodent lover – i’m not).
ok, story number 2.
nicole and i are in her kitchen and the kids are on the back porch eating lunch.
in through the back door scrambles a teeny chipmunk.
ACROSS HER FLOOR & UNDER HER COUCH!!!
so we instantly start screaming like a couple ninnies and jump to the highest surface we can find.
after chasing this thing around for a good while we finally get it cornered in her playroom,
but then we can’t get it out.
after many attempts to scare it out of the playroom and out the back door,
i finally open a window that it finally finds and scampers out of.
then it had the nerve to come back and finish off the kids’ lunch!
blech! i am not a fan of this kind of living!
and i am perfectly ok with you all laughing at me.
