I Don't Need To Move

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Rob went out and bought this trap after the bowl/cage fiasco. The fiasco that involved him tearing out newly taped sheetrock when the weseal ran behind it. It wasn't pretty.

So we bought and caught it in a havahart trap. Then fearless Rob put it into his car and drove it far far away.

"How it got into your house?"
"Why, it crawled up a hole from the basement to the old laundryroom," she answers like that is a normal occurence in all American homes

Doesn't everyone have holes in their floors?

That area of the house is sealed off from our living area of the house by a door in the kitchen. However, we still need to walk through it to get to our new laundry room. It is still pitifully under construction. But this weasel in the house incident has definitely moved putting up walls and sealing off holes in the floor to the front of the home improvement list.

I told Rob this weekend that I feel like I live in a crack house, just without the crack. Yup, a crack house with a really big mortgage and no illegal drugs.

Oh, he is cute!

I'll have you know that my husband even read about the weasel, and he NEVER reads online blogs. He LOL, and tonight when you posted the picture, all the kids ran over to see it, and Bill sauntered over and peered from the back of the pack!

WOW! That's definitely worse than the chipmunk we had in our laundry room last summer. So nice of you to trap and release him. That's one lucky weasel.

Did you name him? We had a groundhog take up residence in our basement...complete with burrow and all (we have a dirt floor)...paid someone to come with the trap. At 1:30 in the morning I heard the biggest racket, and decided to move the "creature" outside until morning so I could close up the hole!! Not to be outdone by Punxitawny Phil, we named our PA groundhog Nazareth Norman and sent him off the the game lands! Isn't owning old houses just so fun??!!
