Friday Frenzy #8: Raccoon Edition

OMG do I have a story for y’all today!

A few nights ago, we were sitting in the living room watching TV, and suddenly I heart this rumbling coming from under the house and suddenly….


A raccoon, y’all. In my living room!

Jeffrey and I just froze and I got stuck in a loop yelling “OH MY GOD, RACCOON! IT’S A RACCOON!” over and over. Jeffrey moved to scare it out the front door, but it dove back into the vent. I think it was more freaked out than we were. The cats were completely useless haha, they RAN into the other room and hid in the closet for the rest of the night.

We set heavy items on all the floor vents, but I definitely had a hard time falling asleep!

On the plus side… a critter catcher company came out, set a trap under the house, and caught the raccoon. On the downside… we have to wait for an HVAC company to come out to repair the damage, so in the meantime, no AC. We don’t want to run up the bill cooling the whole world through whatever holes the raccoon chewed into the ducts. Luckily, the highs are in the 70s this weekend, because the past few days in the 90s have been horrible.

So that’s how my week has been… how about you guys?

Oh wow check out these gorgeous Asian Sesame Fried Oysters. These come from the Bearded Hiker and just looking at them makes my mouth WATER. Maybe I’m just hungry for dinner but maybe it’s just that they look delish! I might just be making these for my next party.
