My first interruption came shortly before bedtime for the younger set. James, (surprise), tripped over a chair leg and hit his head on our stone fireplace hearth. Ouch! Of course this left a rather impressive gash in his head. (I'll spare you the pictures.) This took quite a while to take care of, but as we were finally getting ready to go to bed, in rushes Kristin with: "There's a bat in the laundry room!!!"
Enter bat removal crew:
In writing about it, it doesn't sound like it took much time.
Bat departure time ended up being about 11:45. Ugh!
