I didn't get my weekly update posted because as I was a freaking BAT flew above my head.
Yes, you read that right. A freaking bat. Not just a bat but a FREAKING bat. I didn't notice it until my husband started screaming like a little girl.
The cat was in the fireplace about 20 minutes before this happened so I guess she knew it was there. Damn her not telling me. It flew around the house for about 10 minutes until it finally flew out the door.
We we so freaked out, and finally settled down, and the cat tried to go into the fireplace again. Then, we heard the tap tap noise we had heard before. I scooped up the cat and ran with the dog to the bedroom and hid like a 5 year old.
One of our friend came over and they blocked off the fireplace until we can get Animal Control out there today! I seriously had nightmares last night thanks to this little creature.
I can thank my fear of bats on Weekly Reader from 1st grade. It was all about bats and I was scared to walk outside in the dark for weeks. I know....weird kid. Now, I am a weird adult freaked the hell out by a flying germy bat.
Now if this bat was a vampire and looked like Edward Cullen, I might be telling a different story! :)
