I can count on you to make me laugh, but I have a Part 2 to your Part 1! In addition to all my other troubles of late (and I did get my car back yesterday, Lara, thanks for remembering! Cost big $$ thought), anyway....I've had squirrel (s - pretty sure it's plural) getting in an out of my attic somewhere off and on for about
the past month. Like you, I have a rodent phobia! But I don't have a father to call!
(can I borrow yours?)
The darned thing seems to like to "play" around 5am and I know I've got to call someone to not only get it (them
) out, but find out where they're coming and going from. And with all the quiet in my house today, I could really hear one scampering around and there were moments when I swore it was on my level with me and no longer in the attic! I think I screeched once and all my windows are
open, but no one came (darn!) to help. Exterminators cost $$...so now that I have the car back, I've got another unplanned expense. But I laughed at you wanting to remove your kitchen because I thought maybe I could put my attic on top of it?
Oh, my. I wonder if the Wilsons have anything to do with all this!
(for others who don't understand this reference, it's a long, long story!)
I do know about
having to possibly cut the cord on the cable permanently, and that scares me for the exact reasons you described. I tried unplugging everything today to see if I could get even one local station, but no luck.
This all sounds so pathetic, but I knew there's be people here who understood!
