The Week After

I feel like survived the Thanksgiving holiday more than celebrated it. But that's ok. At least I survived it.

And really, it was just yesterday. We were up at the crack of dawn because DON'T EVER LET HOME DEPOT INSTALL ANYTHING. In an unrelated situation, thanks to my father-in-law we think the roof leak is fixed with minimal expense. He did find two soft spots while walking the roof so we'll have to deal with that at some point, which will not be minimal expense. I guess we'll see how well it holds up when the rains come again Wednesday.

Aside from that, there was another mouse issue, which I don't want to talk about because I'm still a little traumatized. Unfortunately for the mouse, it did not survive the Thanksgiving weekend. Sorry mousy. I'm very glad I have a husband to deal with those things because I just can't. Really. I can't.

The bright side is that I got the bulk of my major Christmas shopping done on Friday. And by that I mean I ordered gifts for my four boys online, to be shipped directly to their homes so I don't have to try to get them packed and shipped myself. There will be a few less homeless dinosaurs, airplanes, and microscopic organisms this holiday season.

But what about the homeless mice?

Well, Cow is sure Susan tried her best to spare the mousy.

At least the homeless dinosaurs and getting a break!

I would like to point out that when we left for the beach my husband wanted to throw away all the mouse traps so that the dogs would not get in them. Well I left one behind the washer and when I went to do laundry tonight I thought I saw a little something on the corner of the trap. And I will 2nd the fact that thank goodness that I have a husband to take care of those things. We are now a mouse free house too!

You are like the fifth person speaking of mice in their homes.

YIKES! I'm getting freaked out just thinking about it.
