Ummm actually yes it was a squirrel. It was small so we were both calling it a chipmunk, but a quick googling makes me think that it was actually a squirrel because it didn’t have stripes.

That IS a fun idea, but (1) I’m positive that Wallace would eat it in .05 seconds if given the opportunity and (2) we already released it. Although, it immediately ran up on our roof and started yelling at us, so it is possible we’ll meet again.

It was a chipmunk squirrel. This was the cutest possible outcome, for sure.

The attic beast is quiet now.

It’s probably resting. Conserving it’s energy for more ruckus making later. Probably around 3 am if it’s anything like last year’s attic beast.

If I made a video peaking up there it would definitely make for some good spoooooOOOooky blog content tho. Hm…

I wonder if we have a catcher’s mask somewhere around here….

Oh my gosh there is some kind of animal making so much noise in our attic right now! We had this issue last year and it was a rat and we had to call an exterminator. It’s probably a rat again but I swear it sounds as big as a freaking bear.

I kind of want to peak up there and see what it is, but I’m scared it will bite my face or something….

Since it’s fall now..

(Okay I know it isn’t really, but I’m over summer and it’s September so I’m gonna say it’s fall)

Here’s a spoooooooky story for you!

On Friday night my mom babysat Max and Jeff and I went out to dinner with his family to celebrate his dad’s retirement. It was still early when dinner was over so we decided to get a snack and find a spot to park and look at the stars. One nice thing about living in the boonies, like we do now, is that the night sky is seriously legit.

There are a bunch of logging access roads in the hills above our house, so we picked one, parked and opened the sunroof.

We were sitting there a few minutes when suddenly we heard a noise and a flashlight came on in the woods next to our car. The light flash in the leaves over our car for a moment and then switched off. Jeff was like “maybe we should go…” and I was like “yes, please let’s leave right now ok thank you good bye murderer!”

And in the morning I went to check on the car and there, stuck in the car door, was a bloody hook!

Jk jk!

But for real. I don’t know if someone was trying to scare us or spy on us or if they were just startled by the appearance of our car or what, but it was way creepy and I don’t think we’ll be visiting any more logging roads at night again anytime soon.

Max’s current activity

Take a bite of apple
Throw apple across room
Retrieve apple
Repeat

Also, he actually has one apple for each hand right now.

Also, he occasionally takes breaks to just lie on the ground and eat both of his apples for awhile.

One nice thing about clear cuts- the view

One nice thing about clear cuts- the view

"As men, we get to have it both ways: chiding our partners into sending us images, heaping praise upon the bodies of women we find attractive who have done so (and brutally mocking those we don’t), then turning around and castigating them as sluts when they actually comply and it better suits our narrative. A girlfriend who sends you a naked selfie is a hero to most men, until she doesn’t want to do so anymore, at which point she’s a whore who sends out naked photos of herself."
