Our neighbor Cille (Francille) has a little tomato plant on her back porch on the side that is next to our house. We one day she was so excited about her one red tomato! She came back the next day and it was GONE all that was left was a little leaf that was on the top. Later in the week she noticed one of her green tomatoes gone.
Well a few days after we layed the sod I noticed something had been digging at the edge of my composter. I didn't think it was harpo because for one he's not really a digger and for two his paws have never been that dirty. So I brushed the dirt back into the hole and put the little piece of sod back in it's place. Well a few hours later it was MOVED!! This little culprit has made it's way into our yard as well!
Kyle and i put a stone there blocking the little hole this creature chewed in my composter and since then we haven't seen any activity. Until a day or so ago I noticed a little circular hole in our sod! That little sh!t is at it again!
The other day when I got home from work after parking in the garage I was walking up to the house and heard the fence rattle between Cille's house and ours... so I ran over to see if I could catch this little devil. No luck, I think he ran under Cille's deck.
Well tonight I looked out the window to check on our sprinkler to see if it was done watering or not and THERE HE WAS!!!!! He wasn't on the sod but over to the side with a HUGE acorn looking thing in his mouth, and he was digging at the ground (not on the sod or I would have shot him) (with what I dunno). Anyway this damn little squirrel has caused a heep of trouble in our backyards... who knows what he's doing to our other neighbors. And all my life I thought squirrels were so cute and I'd love to watch them eat at my grandfathers.... but low and behold squirrels are just like children... cute and adorable but little stinkers deep down!

I've been trying to figure out how people can leave comments... I guess it hasn't been working for a few people.
I think this way should work:
On the bottom of a post you can click where it says comments (there is a number in front that shows how many there are usually 0 )
Then you can choose the bubble:
If you choose the Name one you can just put in your name and leave the URL blank. If you pick anonymous you can just leave your name in the comment (unless you want to remain anonymous).
Hopefully that way it will work. Oh then just clinic submit comment.

We also patched that spot on the roof, made a Home Depot trip and got a board for under our mattress since our box spring did not fit upstairs. We also got some weed killer as we are going to get our sod down this weekend (hopefully). We got a trial shade for the living room window, we both hated it, so that is going back and the search continues.
I guess that's all we did, I felt like we got a lot accomplished.... but just a few things.

After leaving my meeting I headed to Eden Prairie (about 20 min away) to pick up a baby gate for $15!!! I'd been looking for a swinging baby gate to put at the top of the stair so Harpo wouldn't venture down there, although he doesn't really go down there. He'll come down if I've been down there for 30 minutes or so, other wise he just waits at the top. I think they are too steep and too slick for him. Anyway we got a gate at the top just to be safe.
Last night after I blogged we got the rail put back up to the upstairs. we took this down to paint and then I wanted to clean it real good before we put it back up. So I washed it last night and we got it back up.
That's about all for the house work. During the weeks it's nice to take it slow and just do a little here and there. :)

We also got some blinds to finish up the two rooms we had only one set in: the upstairs bedroom and the guest bedroom. The only crappy thing was, well besides them being a pain in the arse to put up, the bedroom now has one white blind and one creamish colored blind OH WELL! I think the upstairs ended up both being white.
We also looked everywhere for some shades for the living room, the sun makes a horrible glare on the TV and it also gets pretty warm in there without something blocking the sun. We tried: Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, Linens and Things, and JCPenny's; I think we are going to resort to the internet! All the other rooms can wait. We figure that would be a good item for our wedding registry :0)
We also got the little hanging shelves thingy I talked about before for the office closet to maximize our storage space. So far I just have my yarn in there, but we'll find something else to put in there.
