I was awaken this morning, not by the pitter patter of little feet, but to the scritch scratching of little claws. The squirrel which took refuge in our attic during the hurricanes is back. This time it sounds like he is exploring more as you can hear him on one side of the house and then scratch, scratch, scratch, he’s on the other side. Jennifer checked into getting someone to come out and “take care” of the squirrel, but needless to say, I can find about 250 reasons why we are going to handle it ourselves. I just hope it is a squirrel. I don’t want to get up in the attic and suddenly I’m face to face with a pack of wild raccoons. I’m going to wait until this weekend so I can see where he’s coming in and plug up the hole.
Today we once again lost in softball 17-10. The bats were just not there, especially mine. I when 0-3 with three fly outs. I also think we aren’t aggressive enough in our base running. We had to call in one of the guys that was hurt recently because we were low on men. He wasn’t used to our wimpy base running style and he ended up stealing home. We should probably sit him down and tell him to not be so aggressive in his base running like the rest of the team. My fielding went fine, there wasn’t many hit my direction, but I did help turn a 5-4-3 double play.
Today’s picture is of Abby and me at her 1st birthday party. This is in honor of Abby’s 4th birthday which is on Friday.
