Although this has nothing to do with growing a business, I have to share that a cricket has gotten the better of me. For the last 10 nights, it has loudly serenaded me from its secure location under the lining of our couch downstairs.
I usually work late at night in my upstairs office after my son goes to bed. I find it a bit difficult to concentrate with the raucous cricket music blasting up the stairs. Maybe this is just preparation for when Josh becomes a teenager.
I think my biggest problem is wounded pride. I am known in my household as the "cricket whisperer" since I have an uncanny knack for silently hunting them down, safely scooping them in a cup and freeing them outside. We have lots of crickets here in Phoenix, and they sneak in every time you open the front door.
Every time I have donned my warrior cap and stealthly gone after this cricket, it has evaded my capture.
So if anyone has any non-invasive cricket-capturing techniques, I would love to hear them.
