We have a new neighbor

Well, a few months ago, the crazy people who lived next door ended up leaving. There's no need to get into details, but it was a long time coming. We saw couple after couple go in, look at the house, go out... nothing happened. It seems like someone is getting ready to move in, or so we thought! The other day, Erm and I were enjoying our morning coffee, and he looked over and saw that the blinds in the bedroom were moving. We figured the new owners were in there doing stuff, but then we noticed that there was no car in the driveway. As avid Ghost Hunter fans, our first thought was that the house was haunted. So we watched again, and the blinds moved again and I realized... no ghost. It was this guy:
I said "Oh... its just a mouse". Erm then told me that that was no mouse! And I took a closer look:

That is a SQUIRREL, living in the house next door! He goes from window to window, looking outside and laughing at all his cold little squirrel friends. He's actually huge and looks like he is having no problem finding food. I'm sure that house smells awesome.

I'm wondering if I should bring him a pecan pie or something?

It's 2009!

Oh my. I have been so out of the bloggy loop! I just realized I haven't posted on my blog, read someone else's blog, taken pictures for my blog, etc since the Ice Storm. Wowser.

I'd like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Happy New Year and a safe and prosperous 2009!!! 2008 was good and bad for a lot of people and I think many are excited to see what this new year will bring. We will have a new President, I will soon have a new marriage, and who knows what else is going to happen. I did make 3 New Year's Resolutions, as I always do. This year they are much more realistic than usual. I think because I'm too busy to imagine devoting a ton of time to anything earth shattering right now. They are:

1. Make my office at work more homey. I work at a youth center and it looks like a jail cell!

2. Have a happy and successful first year of marriage.

3. Knit myself a sweater.

That's it! Shouldn't be too hard! (I hope!). How about my bloggy friends, any resolutions to share?

Have a great weekend!
