    Scared the Hell Outta Me!!!

    Bat Flying In My Bedroom

    A couple of weeks ago I was asleep in my room at about one in the morning. I woke up and laid there with my eyes open. It was dark but there was a little bit of light coming in. I noticed some movement in the air near the silent ceiling fan but I was still kind of groggy and so I...

    Me Too, Me Too!

    It's still there!  I keep it next to my bed in case someone breaks into my house.  ;) I love bats!  I think they're adorable.  I'd like to build a bathouse in my backyard.

    I Have A Phobia About Birds, Etc.

    I will never forget the day that a bat flew in during construction on my home! I am terrified of birds (I know! But Steve Irwin was, too!), so imagine me with a BAT in my house! In hindsight, it was hysterical and my kids still remember that day. My girls were about 3 and 5...

    Bats Are Cool Unless....

    Before my husband and I got married we shared a small apartment in Colorado. In the summer all of these bats moved into the crawl space above the porch. We liked to watch them all fly away at dusk. Then one night we went to go out on the porch and drink some wine, but stopped...

    I Did and Led to Rabies Shots.

    A great big one too!! God, it scared the living daylights out of me when I opened the attic to have it swoop out at me!! Claws and teeth and everything. Needless to say, I've never been in the attic since :)

    I Rememer It Like It Was Yesterday...

    ... but it was back in 1983. We had friends over for a bbq. I put the kids to bed and shut off the lights. I swear I felt something whoosh by me. I thought it was a bird. I looked for it a little bit but I was tired so I went to bed. The next afternoon about 2:30, my baby girl...
