As if Monday's are not bad enough...
I was totally prepared. I made my lunch, put it in the fridge, and fell asleep at approx. 9:00 which gives me ample amount of sleep to conquer my Monday. However, my Monday had other plans. This morning I woke, showered, and began blow drying my hair. Might I mention that I have just enough time to do what has to be done in the mornings, and no time to spare. Especially this week because I have to be at school at 7:15 for A.M. Duty. So as I am drying my hair, my husband is taking his shower. I look out the bathroom door into the kitchen and there is a fairly large mouse running through my kitchen. I began screaming in a panic- of course my husband barely cares. After about 10 minutes he gets out of the shower. At this point, the mouse is back out in the yard telling all his friends about the stash he found. Great. I simply can not continue fixing my hair, so it looks awful. No way am I going out into the bonus room to iron my clothes. So my sweet husband irons my clothes while I sit on the bed yelling antics at him about why we have mice, how long has it been here, will it go back outside, is that the only one, how do I kill can imagine. I quickly dress and frantically run through the kitchen- grab my bag and out the door. Already running late. Get to school and realize I have no lunch. I vow not to eat in the cafeteria because it is nasty. Which of course today I had to. It was some form of meat, cornbread, turnip greens, and sweet potatoes. UGH! So I was starving. Left school and went straight to Wal-Mart. Had to call the husband four times to get the right type of trap. Since he would not be home as soon as I arrived, my mother-in-law came over to lay out the traps for me. If the mouse is still here- he will be gone soon. So to say the least, my Monday was basically a failure..I hope for a better Tuesday.


  1. What kind of traps did you get? Hopefully not the Ortho Kill and Contain ones...we had mice in our basement and they only trapped the mice and never killed them. it was a big mess. Best of luck....if you are like me, mice are the WORST to have in your home

  2. Sarah we got the old-fashion snap their necks...we got him this morning!
