We have to turn the cold water on in the bathroom sink for the shower to not make loud noises in the pipes in the downstairs guest bathroom.
My husband shoots the squirrels and woodpeckers that peck and chew at our house with his paintball gun.
I just LOVE the vacation on the front lawn idea!!!!
When we finally left apartments and moved into a (rented, though!) house in a pretty nice neighbor hood this year I *immediately* stuck several pink flamingo's into the front yard. It was #1 priority even before unpacking toilet paper
My friend and I couldn't afford a tropical vacation so we parked our butts out in my front yard with an inflatable pool, two tiki torches, camp chairs, and made Martini's from $2 (Target brand) Martini mix to put in our plastic cups.
