Crazy Weekend!

I hope you all had a great Memorial Day weekend and also had a chance to honor the men, women and families of our military people.

I spent the weekend running around as my baby came home from school and we had an accidental new addition to the family! We came home and found a baby squirrel in our driveway. It was disoriented and had a bloody nose. We didn’t know how long it had been on the hot blacktop.

One of our neighbors is a real animal person, so she helped us, but was not sure it would survive. We gave it water and made a little nest for it. In the meantime, we went in search of its nest and/or mom.

We had a close call with reuniting it with its mommy, but sadly the baby was in danger of attack from other wildlife. We’ve been feeding it formula and keeping it warm. It’s finally opened its eyes and is alert, but we’re trying to track down a rehabilitator who knows what to do with it.

If anyone is in the Central NJ area and knows of one, that would be greatly appreciated.

Besides that, I spent a lot of time working on the new books and also snuck in a barbeque with friends and family.

How about you? Did you all have a wonderful weekend? Are you ready to face the week at work?
