Tuesday Thoughts

  • I keep telling myself that I'm gonna be a better blogger. I don't listen to myself very well. 
  • Tonight was the Open House at the school and also the showcasing of the science fair projects. There are some creatively funny kids out there. My young en's grade? 95. Heck yea....apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
  • The Decatur Middle School student that died this week had a favorite color of orange. My daughter tells me all will be wearing orange on Wednesday with thoughts of him. My heart goes out to that family. I could not imagine for a second.
  • I received a text yesterday that a school bus and a day care van were involved in a wreck...with my little one on a daycare van and my older one on a school bus - I had a hard time not having a heart attack. Neither of mine were involved...whew. 
  • Go Karts and Lawn mowers are not as easy to maintain as one would think....but I am very thankful for the intervention of The Inkernets that helps me figure out how to do it myself. 
  • If I'm griping about the lawnmower - that might be the first hint that I haven't mowed yet. My lawn is embarrassing. If I don't get the mower started tomorrow, then I'm going to have to call someone to come mow.
  • Kids new beds are great....although, they are sleeping in mine right now. Little one told me she can't sleep in her bed tonight because her leg hurts and she is afraid she will fall off the bed. Tomorrow night she'll be all healed and will sleep in there. 
  • The basketball tourney bracket thingie that I entered in is doing pretty pretty well. If all goes as I hope it does, I'll end up 2nd overall....with over 200 people in there! Not bad for a chick that rarely watches basketball.
  • My brother called me last week to let the kids sing happy birthday. I was so happy I almost cried. 
  • I'm embarrassed to admit that I still have a mouse in my house. I had him trapped in the pantry last night for twenty minutes. I was not going to give in and scream like a little girl.....again. Somehow...I'm not sure how, the little stinker managed to either get past me and my mighty force field that I had built to block his exit through the door or he completely managed to disappear into thin air. 
  • I'm fighting the magical voo doo mouse. The only thing worse is that he chewed into a baggie of Ramen Noodle Soup. Uncool.
  • Yesterday was stressful. Very stressful. I demand today be better. I've had enough miserable and stressful lately.

Get yourself a CAT! A good cat will take care of your mouse problem.

Ever heard of a mouse trap? You know, those things that catch mice. They have ones that capture without seeing the animal.

Umm get yourself a mouse trap girl. We had one mouse that turned into more. It was a mess. You can get the kind that doesnt kill the mouse if that is the problem you are having but you need to get to them pretty fast for the sticky kind or they get off.
