Shock and Awe

Here's me in my Mouse Busters Outfit.

Guess what we did all weekend? Yep! Stuff insulation in the open space between the kitchen sink and the washing machine!

The ants got tired of my full frontal assault on them and enlisted a mouse to distract me and completely gross me out. They're such stupid ants that they must have hired one of the Three Blind Mice, because it ran headfirst into G's foot the other night. Ick.

We bought 2 humane mouse traps and stuck them in the outside closet that holds the hot water heater, which, not coincidentally, has a few open spaces between it and the open space between the kitchen sink and the washing machine. The traps were closed yesterday morning, but the mouse is mocking us and closing them without climbing inside. I'm ready for non-humane measures. These colors don't run!

You go girl! We had a full ant assault this weekend--vaccuum, ant poison, vaccuum. We haven't figured out any rhyme or reason as to why we get them--rainy, dry, hot, cold, whatever. Here they come for the cat food.

A mouse would require some professional help though. I'm really only freaked out by two things--cockroaches and mice. Ew, ew, ew.

When I saw your get-up I figured you were telling us that you were preparing for toxic diapers again. Hummm, mice or new baby diapers....

You are nothing if not versatile.

I really like the facemask & glove look. In fact, you look as though you're ready to perform a sigmoidoscopy.

Which I can't wait to hear about.

Wow. Ants, mice AND lower intestine invasion. You're living the dream!

Thank you Sarah. There's nothing I won't do for a blog post.
