Mouse in the house.
I've been a tad down since watching my president's farewell address (from Chicago!) I just dread the upcoming few years ahead... for obvious reasons. President Obama was the greatest president I am sure I will ever witness in my lifetime. Such an eloquent, intelligent and graceful, kind person. As a country, I'm sure we didn't deserve him, and considering what's coming next... I can only cringe with a pit in my stomach.
I am not extremely political but I am well-read. I do know what I believe and I know a good person when I witness them.
I also don't condone blatant disrespect for any minorities based on ignorance or fear...also known as bigotry or prejudice.
ANYWAY.... BIGGGGGGG NEWS,
Today we found some mouse poop (!!) in our silverware drawer. Uggggh. Of course I had to take EVERY.THING. out and boiling water wash it.... which caused me to discover that we have 12 bottle/can openers of varying degrees... and guess what. We use the bottle opener mounted in the cabinet mostly. hah. But also we have tiny tiny "corn" forks and a 'butter slicer' and some contraption that neither Gregg nor I could figure out what it's purpose is.... all of which are clean and going to goodwill.
Now our silverware is on the counter. And 2 mouse traps are in said drawer.... But here's the thing. As much as I DON'T want mouse in house....I feel kinda bad for setting a trap. I mean, they're just being mice....doing mice things.
I have cats. Jeeeez. C'mon. But those mice are sly characters....(How are they even coming IN to the drawer???)
In other news....I was able to clean the entire kitchen pretty much, due to this unfortunate incident.
I will keep you updated. Cuz I know you wanna know. :D
