A disaster at night

Travis woke me up very loudly at about 4 AM telling me that the birds were loose.  We have two parakeets.  I came out to find the cage on the floor and parakeets flying about.  I told him to put Tarzan in the bathroom and asked where Brownie was (the likely culprit).  She was hiding on top of the washer.  It took me several minutes to try and get the bird cage back together.  I managed to do it despite being groggy.  Then to catch birds!  He had one trapped under a shirt.  I couldn't get a grip on it and it flew off.  When it flew back toward me, I snatched it out of midair!  It promptly bit my hand but I persevered and got it back in its cage.  The second one flew into a wall and stunned itself briefly.  I tried picking that one up too and he bit me in the palm.  Owwwww!  I grabbed a shirt and wrapped him in that and off to the cage.  When I could finally settle down enough to sleep, I dreamed I was living with the ex again back in public housing.  I was so mad I was being very nasty to him.  Glad I woke up from that!  Oh, I forgot to mention that when I went over on Easter to pick up Sarah, he was totally ignoring me as was his nasty, disgusting brother.  I said hello to his brother, but he either didn't hear me or pretended he didn't.  Wouldn't even look at me, either of them.  I shook Dave's chair and when he looked I said HI!  He said hi and turned back around.  Guess he had to put on a show for his brother.  On my way back across the yard, I saw my hummingbird feeder on a pole, so I grabbed it.  I still have alot of belongings over there I need to start getting.  Most of it will probably end up getting thrown out or given away. 

We are expecting MORE snow tomorrow.  I am so sick of this weather.  When is spring going to get here for real?  I heard that alot of people, including farmers down south have been affected by this weather.  My son was asking me if it was caused by global warming.  I honestly couldn't tell him.  I know we can expect cold weather in April, but not for weeks on end! 

Maybe that will inspire spring to come!

I'm glad you got the parakeets back in their cage. Dave is a disgusting excuse for a man and his brother sounds the same. I'm so glad you're rid of him! Jeannette xx

I would go get my belongings ASAP, as he seems the type to dispose of them.  I learned the hard way that cats and birds don't mix.  ::sigh::
