*KRONCH!* *KRONCH!* *KRONCH!*
The sound of very loud crunching stops me dead in my tracks.
There it is again!
It's 4 am, and I haven't even fallen asleep yet, thanks to tummy trouble, and I've just come back to my room. Immediately, I know that, one, it's definitely NOT one of my two cats making the noise, and, two, that it's coming from my wall.
INSIDE my WALL!
Yuck. There is something crunching in my wall and it's trying to get into my bedroom.
What in the heck am I going to do now?! There's no way I can sleep with all that racket going on, not to mention the fact that some furry little rodent could be making it's way into my room at any moment.
"MOM! There's something crunching in my wall!!"
Yup. I went and got my mom. At 4 in the morning.She wasn't exactly thrilled, but dutifully crawled out of bed and went to see, or hear, the crunching thing in my wall. Turns out she didn't know what to do either. Great.
In the end, we decided to spray some Raid (the only critter repellent we could find in the garage) under the baseboard and behind the electrical outlet. It shut the critter up for a while, but he returned the next night.And thus, I have been sleeping upstairs in the guest room for the past week. Turns out, vole repellent spray DOESN'T work after it's rained and we've (well, Mom) set a Havaheart trap outside my wall tonight.
Tomorrow, hopefully, there will be one less NOISY critter in my wall.
Anyway, this little (condensed version) story is my way of explaining why I didn't post last week because I was exhausted from losing sleep from not being able to sleep in my own room. That, and it took me three hours to post three stamp sets on ebay on Saturday! (Everything takes longer when you're sick. And indecisive and can't remember what you're doing!)
Hope you like my card! Thanks for reading this far. :)
