I’m sorry about the mountain loins. What a bummer! Well, I too am excited for some cool weather coming in and unfortunately, I can’t enjoy It. I have a sinus infection from allergies and can’t breathe! That’s what’s annoying me as of now.

@Jess1483:  Yikes! Sorry the mountain lions are keeping you trapped inside your house. 

I had planned a long walk this evening, just to get out of work and find out it was raining. Boo. Although I’ll gladly take rain over mountain lions!

I am a Canadian.  I can understand this rant.

One of my babies was born in late October… when the weather was damp, chilly, and awful.  Outside of regular trips to the Mall (2 or so times a week) we literally didn’t go for walks anywhere else until April !!

That was a horrible winter, I felt so housebound !!  And I quickly grew sick of the Mall !!

Spring & Summer Babies in a Northern Climate have it waaaay better, both for them & Mom.

Lesson learned.

EEEEEP that sounds scary!!!  

What’s annoying me today: I ordered a pizza for dinner tonight. My 1 year old started getting sleepy and fussy so I decided to check my confirmation email to see what time the delivery guy would be here so I could make sure that I wasn’t giving my kid a bath or something when he arrived. I pulled up the email and saw something awful:
Order Type: CARRYOUT.

CARRYOUT!
 
I forgot to select Delivery before I ordered. And my husband’s out of town for work so I had to put on pants and go get my stupid pizza. (This is truly a first world problem if there ever was one.)

Gah! The mountain lion thing sounds scary! I hope you are able to enjoy some of the weather though!

 

The thing that’s currently annoying me is: I learned today that I will be getting my degree at the end of this semester (yay!) but, there is not a Fall/Winter graduation ceremony.  Isn’t the point of doing all this work being able to walk across the stage?!?

We used to have mountian lions & bears roam down into the valley I grew up. As a kid I’d still go out exploring (alone) because my parents armed me with mace.

Usually the wildlife is more afraid of you, especially if they haven’t been fed by someone.

If they’re creeping into populated areas, there is an issue that needs to be resolved. They don’t wander down just for funsies.

@Jess1483:  That’s the same thing as a cougar, right?  Those things are scary!  Luckily, while they are sometimes spotted in the mountains they don’t come into the cities here.

A little bit of TMI:

DH and I went for a walk but had to cut it short cuz I had to poop.  I hate it when that happens!

@Jess1483:  We did some bear safety, along with hypothermia, avalanche, etc. but it was all a part of outdoor ed stuff, not city living.  Mountain lions weren’t really covered, as they are pretty rare compared to bears.

Coyotes were becoming a big issue in my hometown though.  They started attacking kids in playgrounds.
