Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 6th day of March, 2014.

Snowed overnight and is snowing now.

It has been an interesting morning here in our household.

We were having a somewhat normal morning …. I was sitting at the kitchen table writing in my gratitude journal …. WHEN….

Something went flying across the floor to the living room with Alvin in hot pursuit.

Totally took me off guard and I “almost” screamed …… I went up in my “upright fetal position” ……

Alvin stood in his “hunter stance” at the end of our sofa.

OH great, I had felt relatively safe in the living room even though I knew the “mouse” was in the kitchen.

We have been trying to catch this creature since last Wednesday.

He has been tricking us by eating the peanut butter in the traps, pooping and going to the next one.

So they do not work.

Last night we stopped and picked up more traps and the “ultra sonic” sensor plug-in thing ….

Perhaps this is what is making it brave …… to run across the floor with all of the lights on with both of us here.

So now I have a dilemma ….. not much time before I have to run and catch the bus.

I guess I will be brave and set one of the new traps we picked up last night ….. in the kitchen of course ….. or maybe I will set it in at the end of the sofa …. although with us upstairs it is likely not there.

I even held open the front door with hopes that it might run out ( I had Alvin sit on the upstairs steps).

So exciting my life.

Well I had better go,

Round …. I don’t know …… feels like 147 ……

Me- 0   Mouse-6

This has been perhaps the worse eight days of my life ….. just saying.

All I can say “please stay inside the little box” …….

Special Hello to: all those folks with advice on how to catch an unwanted visitor.

Always, Carol and Alvin
