get out of my wall!

A couple of nights ago we had some hard rain, and I woke up in the middle of the night to a noise that sounded like someone walking around in our attic, or something hitting the roof. I was pretty delirious (since I rarely get more than 2-4 hours of sleep at a stretch anymore), and I actually convinced myself for a minute that it could have been Katie climbing and falling out of her crib, but it wasn’t. I mentioned it to Brandon the next morning but we saw no apparent roof damage so we promptly forgot about it.

Then, last night as I walked back into the kitchen after working on something in the office, Brandon looked at me and said, “You’re not in the attic?” We stopped for a minute and were soon rewarded with the pitter-patter of little feet — running ALL OVER the inside of the roof. Either we have rats, mice, or squirrels, and when they move, they are LOUD in their movement. I’ve never lived somewhere with rodents before so I’m torn — I love animals, but I don’t really love the idea of them pooping in our walls, so I have no idea what we should do about them.

If they’d only kept it a little more quiet, we never would have known!
