Alot of Excitement around these parts lately...

So last week I forgot to tell you guys about the house critter! Erik was at work and I was up to work in my office and right away I heard a noise upstairs... a LOUD noise. I immediately assumed someone was up there and got scared to death. I waited and heard it again and again and it sounded like someone tried to get out of the room. I got my gun and went outside on the porch and called some neighbor mens to come and investigate. Well no answers.. I called Erik at work and he says he heard it too and wanted me to go investigate assuring me no person was up there. He could hear the noise too, like something banging the vent.. and I was still too scared to totally investigate it. I finally got a neighbor man to come over and he searched this house high and low for the animal, animal droppings or any evidence of something being trapped indoors. Of coarse when he was here, there was ZERO noise. So right as he is about to leave I am telling him the creature probably killed itself banging into the vent so hard and then IT HAPPENED again! He turned around and said... I dont think its a bird or a squirrel/rat... its your SHREDDER. Yeah... you know the ones that shred papers... well it was left plugged in ( snugs) and it came to life on its on and was jumping around and smashing in to the wall and vent... mystery solved and I felt like a super huge idiot. ha but was relieved nothing was gonna die in our house. The whole time this was happening NEITHER of my very barkity dogs were alarmed.. they acted as if they didnt hear it which was really confusing to me until I figured out they were smarter than mom and NOT scared of SHREDDERS.
and then last night at about 11pm bubs and I were having a great TV night and Ralphie started barking alarmingly from the living room, I go out and it looks like a techo dance party in our living room, and dining room, and office... well turns out the Police mens were in our driveway with a car they had pulled over. It went on for 2o mins or so .. and we were convinced there was gonna be some shooting, but instead they searched the car, arrested the driver and the chick who was coughing like she had bronchitis, got to drive away. Crisis averted.. however now I am even more excited about our new front doors that will finally be ready to install this week!


Here is Erik watching them from Bossie's look out spot:
And then tonight.. while talking to our neighbor over our decks.. we were grilling out and I put bread in the oven and forgot it.. and then we all heard this noise and were like "what is that" and we are looking around before we realize its our smoke detectors and i had turned that delish bread into charcoal. dang! If only I weren't so ADD....

I am just glad you didn't shoot the shredder and then look to see what it was!

I hate when the cops use private driveways for pulling people over...and what's with using the sirens at 1 am on a dead street? That happens over here alot. But you got some fairly good action with the driver going to jail and all...usually it's nothing interesting.

"I got my gun and went outside on the porch"... that is classic! I'm sure it was comforting to the neighbors to see you out there! HA!

Ha there are multiple parts of that story when I laughed outloud. And the picture of Erik laying on the ground...
