Day 1- I hear something in our attic. Maybe it's a bird. A squirrel? Who knows, but I don't like the sound of it.
Day 6- I should probably call some sort of pest control place.
Day 21- Hmmmm..... they're multiplying. What am I so lazy? I should probably tell Rob about this.
Day 26- Rob agrees that we should probably call someone.
Day 31- They've multiplied. Okay, this is it. I am calling someone tomorrow.
Day 33- Why is calling a pest control place so off of my radar until I hear these maddening squirrels above my head in the morning?
Day 39- Bennett keeps telling us, "I hear da animals making noises, Mama."
Day 42- Okay, enough is enough. They are taking over our house. There is a colony of them now and they are just up there taunting me. And Bennett keeps saying, "I so scared of da animals, Mama."
Day 43- We finally call someone. It will be FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS to remove squirrels. What??? Are you kidding me? We are taking matters into our own hands.
Day 44- Survivor Man Rob climbs on our roof with squirrel traps. They are loaded with peanut butter and the trap only cost $40. We are in it to win it.
Day 45- No squirrels caught. And they continue to taunt us by shutting the trap door without getting caught.
Day 46- Survivor Man Rob is climbing through our attic luring squirrels into his trap with food and positive thinking.
Day 47- No squirrels.
Day 48- We see the squirrels peering out of a hole in our roof. They are openly mocking us.
Day 49- No squirrels
Day 50- They've multiplied again.
Day 51- We cave and call Cridder Ridder. We pay $500. Seriously.
Day 52- A neighborhood girl rings our doorbell to tell us that there are dead squirrels on our roof.
Day 53- I hand a burly man a very large check for executing 6 squirrels. I am switching careers. I'm no fool. I see where the money is.
