Wanna See Something Scary?


I’ve spent the last two or three (there was a third, I just don’t know if we had days in between) days being awoken by something that sounded like scratching trying to get into our bedroom closet.  At first I thought it was trying to get out of the closet, but it’s definitely not in the house yet.  Each night, it gets a little more brave and harder to chase away.  Last night, at 4:30 am, I was awoken by the scratching.  I got up and walked over to the door and started banging, no change.  Then I started banging hard on the wall and Zoya started to talk in her sleep, calling out in response to the banging, “Come in, come in, come in, come in.”  I would have laughed if I hadn’t had visions of being attached by an animal.

Pest control comes tomorrow.  I was doing ok, until I started googling and found these photos.  I think we will sleep in another room tonight.  It’s definitely too big to be mice.  I’d hope for a raccoon, but thank heavens I haven’t heard any growls!!!!  At least it doesn’t slither.  Nightmare!

This is so not my favorite part about being a widow.  I’d like to be cozy in my bed letting him protect me.  Ugh!  Why do I have to be the adult?
