Why does the doctor think the medications I am taking for arthritis are bad when they helps and there are no horrible side effect? Why does she think I must try a new prescription that has truly horrible side effects such as death from heart attack, stroke or gastrointestinal bleeding, and all of these with no previous side effects or symptoms?

Could your same friend who was followed by Mr. Raccoon bring more sardines and wave them around the hole, thus luring the raccoon out if he's in? Then you could know that he's gone before you put up the wire.

I am willing to assist.

the friend back to Chicago and I have no more sardines. booo. he was going to reset the trap but I figured it may be pointless. The 'coon is smarter than the trap.

We thought about getting him down, but had to no way to secure things that quickly.

I think i have to go with the porcupine wire. it's the only thing I can come up with to stop him from climbing up the downspouts but I'm worried about getting him trapped on the roof. If i put it up while he's in there, how will he get down? Will he jump? the lower level of my house is one story at the edge.

If you have any more ideas, I am more than willing to listen. Please keep in mind that I fear both raccoons and heights

I honestly find it surprising that Starbucks doesn't allow its employees to have facial piercings.

Obviously, facial piercings are still a no-no in a lot of places... But it still seems kind of dumb.

Hey! I am not entirely sure what the floating cursor arrow means, but the face so looks so happy eating it and licking its lips I always think *yum*.

Think I will have to wait until at least until tomorrow if not later in the week for my grilled cheese. Decided my kitchen needed an overhaul and took most of the stuff out. Only problem is putting everything back. I am stuck.

I didn't think SO's mom was so....what's the word???...off...crazy...mental until LO was born. She corrected me when I told my baby to say hi grandma and instead wants my child to call her mom...ummm no I am her mother, not you. I carried this baby for 40weeks 5days, gained 60lbs (yes 60lbs despite exercise and healthy eating), I have the stretch marks and kangaroo pouch to show for it.. 1st she wishes to nurse my baby and now she's wants to be called mom.... I think she's plotting my demise and wants to take my kid. But seriously, I don't think normal or average grandma's do the above, correct me if I'm wrong.


I've been trying to get along with her but dammit she makes it hard. She got offended when I went to an empty room to nurse and thought I was trying to take LO away from her....-__- I'm not comfortable with nursing in front of SO's dad or your friends who are over when we come to visit. And nursing with a blanket to cover up makes baby fussy, the whole feeding process just takes longer and isn't enjoyable. I am not trying to hurt you by feeding LO in a different room. It is not about you, I am just trying to feed my baby. And reasons like this are why I dread visiting SO's parents. *sigh there were no warning signs of her wacky behavior. I didn't see this coming.

I had a racoon in my attic. The guy who came to fix the hole made sure the raccoon was out frist. Said the only thing worse then a racoon in the attic, was a trappic racoon in the attic! Make sure he's out before you put the wire up!

Am I the only one here who thinks she's working class? Sure I'm educated and have a professional job but there is no way I am middle class. Maybe upper working class at a push.

I've been busier on my day off than I often am at work. It can't be helped though.

^^ yeah, I'm a little nervous. The wire I am instailling wraps around the downspouts so he can't climb up or down. it won't trap him in the attic but will trap him on the roof



oy vey!

The words I want to use are not allowed here so I will just say that I think that is freakish behavior. And I would never let that woman babysit or spend time alone with my kid. Ever.
