This week we had new countertops put in our kitchen, and a new cooktop. I know you are all thrilled to death to hear this ... I suppose this post is more for the folks back home who read this blog to keep up with our goings-on. If you're not excited about our mundane household stuff, feel free to skip this post!
Lisa is standing next to me trying to pull out a tooth. Another one! The poor Tooth Fairy is going to be eligible for frequent flyer miles to our house!
This morning I found Boudreaux barking at something in the grass in the back yard. I went out to investigate and found a baby blue jay. He looked pretty freaked out, so I took a tennis racket and rescued him from his canine attacker. He is now in a box in the garage, although I'm not sure what to do with him. Common sense tells me I need to feed him some worms, but a real Mama bird would probably chew them up first and then feed them to the baby, but there are SOME things at which I just have to draw the line. I did spend about 30 minutes digging in the yard to see if I could find a worm to give him. Why is it when I'm planting flowers I'm always coming across a worm and getting completely grossed out? Why is it when I NEED a worm, they're nowhere to be found?
What is the deal here? Do I look like a critter rescue operation to you?? Dogs ... birds ... what next?
