Nature Gone Wild

Filed under: Uncategorized — Amy @ 9:33 pm

So, I’ve noticed, lately, that nature has gone wild.

I don’t mean that we have bears breaking down our door, however, the nature in our area has been increasingly encroaching on our space.

Now, let me just say that I realize that we, as humans, have taken over their living space in major, major ways.  I’m an animal lover and am all about nature and animal life.

Just not in my space.

I know we’re the big bad in the story of life on Earth, but it seems as though they are either revolting or have decided to just throw in the towel and give up on their own lives.

Two birds flew into our windows in two days.  Weird.

Birds seem to be divebombing our windshields as we drive.  It’s like they no longer avoid moving cars or don’t seem to realize the cars are there.

Chipmunks, who used to quickly scurry out of the way of cars, or who just stayed off the freaking roads to begin with, have suddenly begun to just sit in the middle of the road and watch my car coming, leaving me either swerving to avoid them or holding my breath until I’m over them, because I was too close to swerve.

The raccoons have stopped just knocking over our full garbage bins, but now knock around the empty ones, too, as if to say, “Hey suckers…wanna make something of it?”

Squirrels are a little too close to my front door when I’m walking in and out and I fully expect to find deer on the deck when I go into the kitchen for breakfast.

Anyone else notice that nature is getting a little too close for comfort these days, or have Real Man and I done something to offend the birds and the bees and they are now getting their revenge?


  1. I’m blaming it on all those Michelin tire commercials we let them star in.

  2. We have a deal with the pigeons. We have no deal with the squirrels.
