Remember me telling you guys that there is a MOUSE in my kitchen??
I will be the first to admit I am not a clean freak.
We went through a phase in the summer with sugar ants.
But mice?? That creeps me out....but after talking to the guy at Nichols Hardware Store - A Purcellville Virginia landmark, he tells me that it's common around these parts...(If you come to P'Ville, YOU MUST SEE NICHOLS HARDWARE. It's a throwback to a different era..)
COMMON?? Mice, or even one mouse, freaks me out.
It does. I like to think I am tough, but a mouse quickly turns me into a typical, standing on a chair, hollering girl. I admit it freely.
Well, after breakfast was over, Greg was out the door headed to the White House, I was sitting down ready to clip my Sunday coupons.....and Micaela comes storming in, all excited and flustered, stuttering that she'd heard it snap! (Greg showed them just how sudden and strong the clasp of a mousetrap is so they wouldn't play with it.....) I doubted her and said it was probably the dishwasher....
But then I begrudgingly pulled over the drawer from which the noise came. Lo and behold, one very dead mouse. And my kids were THRILLED.....I mean, jumping up and down, hollering.
Then Adam blurts out, "Hey Mom, want me to get your camera so you can put it on your blog?" I love that kid... But even *I* have standards. I am not going to put a dead mouse on my blog. It's bad enough that it's in my kitchen.......All I can think of is "did he have friends? did he come alone?"
This was enough excitement for one morning. I have to find something decent to wear to a afternoon cocktail type party at Greg's Boss' house today. Greg has it easy. He can just wear his uniform. I have to actually THINK about what to wear......But before I go to the party, I will be finishing up some shopping at CVS/pharmacy. I saved my Extra Care Bucks for gifts for the kiddos (I have $67.00 to spend on them, which includes a $25.00 gift card from CVS for a new prescription..) If you DON'T know about CVS go here: Money Saving Mom: CVS 101 and see what I am blabbering on and on about....
Have a wonderful day!!
