Emme wearing a 3-6 month old dress. The dress was worn by Janae's girls... who are now 5 and 8. Emme is 2. She's wearing a 3-6 month old dress. Should I say it one more time?
Emme is standing in front of our squirrel infested van. Oh, just keep reading! Never a dull moment!
I am so immature. Right now, I don't even care to admit it. I might be ashamed... say, a year from now... but not so much right now.
Tonight, I was sitting at the kitchen table helping Shelby with her math. Emme climbed up into the chair next to me. Paul was heating up his own dinner. Jackson was downstairs on the computer and Gracie was practicing her piano.
I decided, at that moment in time, to scream. A loud blood-curdling scream. Shelby was scared to death and Emme burst into tears.
That made me really happy. Emme bursting into tears.
Why? Because she does it all the time... screams. Sometimes she does it for a reason... like when one of those other small homo sapiens bother her. But, many times it is for no reason. Just minutes before she climbed into the chair beside me, she did one of her terradactyl like screams. I don't even know why. She was coming up the stairs and so was Gracie. Apparently, she didn't like it that Gracie had stopped at the top. She produced a loud, pierce the eardrum scream.
I decided she needed a taste of her own medicine.
My throat hurts right now because of that scream. It's a small price to pay.
Do you remember Bobby? If not, click here.
His brother Billy was sleeping soundly under the hood of our old van late this afternoon. I am pretty sure now ... that that's where Bobby came from.
Why? Why would squirrels build a nest in our old van? There are so many trees around our house and neighborhood. We don't live in a new development... the kind with no trees. We live in an older neighborhood with lots of mature trees. There are thousands of places they could have built a nest.
The nest... the nest is bad enough. But, those blasted squirrels also chewed up some wires in our van. I needed to sell that van. Even if it was only for $611, I needed to sell that van. I've got a gold crown in my mouth that needs paid for. No one has called me about being in a rap video. SO, I think tomorrow... I'll go try and sell some plasma or something.
Do you see the naked baby squirrel??? If you look closely, you can see chewed up wires. I SOO love squirrels. And, animals in general. Amen.
