I have been working on this post for two weeks. But then I HAD to send this email off today, which may have wrecked the post. (Since I'm posting my letter to him for you all to see.) But I just thought I'd share with all of you my ongoing saga and the real email that I sent to our Condo Association this morning.
As my roommate Anna mentioned, I am in fact the roommate who is on the edge of insanity. This has been going on since February and it has only gotten worse. The head of my bed is directly behind one of the nests. I cannot even begin to describe what it's like having a 5 inch tall jackhammer wake you at 7 am every morning, right in your ear. I no longer need an alarm clock.
Right now they are quiet. This is a rarity in the morning. However, I feel as though I hear so much fluffing, breathing, cooing, and stirring noises that any Woodpecker enthusiast would do anything to get the inside scoop on my Woodpecker co-habitation. Did I mention she's right next to my ear??
Th other hole, which is now bigger than my fist is higher up. It is against the wall of our shower. The other bird pecks there. This one has also begun pecking on the inside of the wall. (Yes, we are privileged enough to have not one but two birds nesting in our walls.) I am expecting to see it's beak come through any day now. I will be tempted to tweak it off if it does. The only time that one is quiet, apart from this morning is when the shower is on and as soon as we are done, our Little Woody is at it again.
But my favorite thing is when they drill on the metal chimney.
Since I work part time from home, I must tell you that this has been driving me up the wall. I am a huge animal enthusiast but I can't stand this animal.
I know the Bible says we are to love our neighbor, but this is ridiculous.
Sincerely Frustrated and Frazzled,
She's Having a Baby
