I'm Giving Up

They are really plucking my last nerve! You know the patches I made to the electrical cable? (see the photos in the last post) One (or more) of the little varmints pulled the tape and piece of protective water hose off and now they are running around up there knocking it around in the eaves! They woke me up just at dawn and I think the momma had some more babies during the night because I could hear her squealing or crying or purring-whatever it's called. My face is still messed up from the insulation from when I made the repairs too. I am kind of sleeping with one eye and one ear open because of the chewed electrical cable which I cannot do anything about (professionally) until after the Critter Control people make the repairs and get the squirrels out of the attic. Okay, all my online and blogging friends, let's hold hands and pray that I keep calm and don't go postal over the weekend. Thanks, I needed that.
Love to all,

PS: Blogger isn't cooperating with me today-cannot upload photos-and I wanted to post the challenge one I did for Jessica Sprague.

Hi Liv,I'm new to your blog but, you & I have chatted a bit over at Scrapbook Dimensions. Anyway,my dear friend Vicki C gave me the link to your blog so I thought I would pop over and say hey! So sorry @ the naughty squirrels! Yikes, they can be awful, they did some serious damage to my mom's roof so I sure hope the critter control people get this taken care of for you a.s.a.p.!
Hope you have a nice weekend!

Bless your heart Liv! I am so sorry about all this mess, my hubby reminded me that squirrels are just rats with bushy tails and can not believe anyone in their right mind would encourage them by feeding them! (HA, he hates them after they tore through our guest house in Alaska and ate the roof and sheetrock to bits one winter!) I can't wait to see your post soon about those buggers being taken away! Take pictures, we need to share your joy! Big hugs to you, Donna Lynn

Hi Liv,
I am new to your blog.
I had a roof rat problem a year ago, and they drove me mad. They would come in and stay up all night, and scratch and move all though my walls and attic. I put moth balls in the attic as was recommended by the critter catchers. They said they can't stand the smell. Don't know it that works on squirrels.
I know what you mean about the wiring they chewed through my doorbell wire now I have not doorbell.
They finally left, or died at the paws of my dog, I found their lifeless bodies in the backyard.
Hope you can get peace soon.

I am just laughing my head off right now! My parents had squirrels in their attic. Oh, get some help fast. They made a mess of things. I hope they are gray squirrels. For some strange reason I like red squirrels but probably not in my attic. Still laughing. Kara
