That is the question.  I want to bake cookies, but at the same time I want to take a nap.  What to do, what to do, what to do.

Here’s the recipe for the cookies, while I finish making up my mind:

Santa’s Snickers Brand Surprises

Ingredients:

  • 2 sticks butter (softened)
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla
  • 3 ½ cups all purpose flour (sifted)
  • 1 tsp. Baking soda
  • ½ tsp. Salt
  • 1 pkg. (13 oz) Snickers Brand Minatures

Directions:

  1. Combine the butter, peanut butter and sugars using a mixer on a medium to low speed until light and fluffy.
  2. Slowly add eggs and vanilla until thoroughly combined.  Then mix in flour, salt and baking soda.
  3. Cover and chill dough for 2-3 hours
  4. Unwrap all the Snickers Brand Minatures

F*ing Squirrel

This is what I saw when I left the house yesterday morning to take Gabrielle to daycare. 

You can’t really see it to well based on the picture, but when I looked into the flower pot, there was at least a 6-7 inch deep hole. 

Needless to say my day went down hill from that point.  I purchased a bottle of “Deer Off” spray repellent at Lowes yesterday and soaked all four of my plants out front.  (Despite the name — it works on creatures other than deer.) Then I had to sweep up the mess — in the pouring rain.  We’ll see how well this works.  All I am going to say is, for 18 dollars, it better fucking work.  So far, this morning there hasn’t been anything dug up….I’ll keep you posted.

Squirrels.  Kill them.  Kill them all.
