the little critters and animals in and around my neighborhood are starting to get to me. seriously, i know how the actors in avatar must have felt because i'm pretty sure i live in pandora. in the forest. with lots of scary, teeth-baring animals that like to come out and play at night.
in addition to small rodents, i am also seriously hating things that crawl and/or fly. with summertime (i.e. 100-plus degree temperatures and 110% humidity) now upon us, texas-sized, bloodsucking mosquitoes are out in full force. i know you guys live all over the country and globe, and you too have your fair share of indigenous creepy crawlies, but i guarantee you, the mosquitoes i have recently seen flying around my home (and sometimes even into.my.freaking.house.) are seriously HUGE. like the size of small birds.
and i feel like every time i go into or out of my house, at least one mosquito flies in and i can't find the little bloodsucker. so when i wake up in the morning, i've been waking up with a new bite!! i can't use raid or bug spray because it sends me into a coughing/asthma/throat attack, so instead think i may need to invest in a mosquito net to ward off that one or two pesky needle-flying creature.
here's the thing, i HATE mosquitoes. like really really hate them. so i'm going to put a sign over my front door that goes something like this:
that'll keep 'em away, i just know it. as for the little rodents and critters, i'll come up with something and get back to you.
