Squirrely

I had the best of intentions to be productive today. At least I got some stuff done yesterday. After doing some quick grocery shopping, I met up with my buddies to swing over to Home Depot to celebrate Earth Day and buy some lumber. Er, doing my part to consume trees…

Anyway, Home Depot rocks. They gave away one million compact fluorescent light bulbs in honor of Earth Day. Way to go Home Depot! And I am going to build a folding table and decided to pick up the lumber. After realizing that I made a bonehead move trying to figure out lumber dimensions, we made a trip back to my house to get the plans so I could get the right stuff. This lumber sizing stuff is new to me… who knew dimensions listed were not actual? hrumpf. So. Have lumber, beautiful day out to work in the garage. I grab my tools and head out to get started.

I made it halfway down the driveway. There was a puny looking squirrel wobbling around. He looked like a little monkey because his ears were not sticking up and he had itty bitty legs. I went to walk around him and he kind of followed me, so I ran the other way. Then I stood staring at him for a few minutes. My neighbor yells to me that there were a bunch of baby squirrels running around. He had chased one out of his garage. It then proceeded to chase him around my house.

The baby squirrel got tired of the conversation and started following me again, so I ran up the steps to my house and the little bugger tried to follow me! So then I was afraid he was going to try to get in. Meanwhile my kitties are looking out the basement window to check out the little monkey and he’s just as interested in them. Bah. I want to go inside! So I got a piece of wood to use to divert him if he came too close to me and stood there waiting for him to move. My other neighbor came home and asked why I was looking so deep in thought.

“Oh how cute!” she says, standing there in her sandals. She offers a glimpse to her young son and the little squirrel runs toward them. They flee. This little squirrel was chasing people all over the place! I felt a little bit better about being such a wimp. So, no work in the garage, and I’m afraid to work in there because then I may be cornered by them! So much to do…
