Quick pic taken with cell phoneIf your into reading a more cheerful weekend account, I won't blame you for moving on to the next blog with your morning coffee.
I had meant to finish blogging about the rest of our lovely relaxing vacation...I am just not up to it yet. I have lost all the benefit of my peaceful and restful vacation. We came home late Friday afternoon after a wonderful stop in Portland for the day...more on that later in the week when I can get my sanity back and my camera from down stairs.
Okay already you are saying. Those of you still with me here this is how my weekend has gone. Friday night we came home all refreshed and relaxed. Megan was anxious to come hang out with us for the evening since hubby was away. As we were sitting around the great room Megan gave out a YEEK, and started grabbing babies. It turns out she saw a mouse. A fairly good sized one. So we quickly picked up babies and secured them. Megan kept watch to make sure the mouse didn't go anywhere else while I went looking for a bucket to trap him with. Yeah I know stupid idea. =O Anyways...I called Dan home from a friends house to help. He gets out the shop vac and thinks maybe he can suck it up...are you really laughing now? It's a no go. So Dan goes to the store to get mouse traps and decon and we move to the back porch and visit. He goes back to his friends to watch a movie. Looooooooooooooong story short. There was more than one mouse. As I was watching TV later I saw about three scurrying around. Okay that is it till Dan gets home I am going to hold up in my bedroom. This proved not to be very helpful as I am sitting on my bed, another mouse scurries by. Stomach is now getting nauseous. I am not doing well. One mouse is one thing an invasion has me sick. Dan finally gets home to find me a wreak on the bed afraid to walk on the floor. I end up moving upstairs to the guest bedroom for the night with the door crack barricaded with books. I seriously wanted to go to a hotel. I couldn't fall asleep till after 3:00 am. We did finally catch one mouse just as I felt it was safe to go back to the bedroom this morning to get ready for church...
Sooooo we have an exterminator coming Monday morning and today we went and got a new cat! I am not kidding. We looked on Craig's list and found the perfect kitty. Three years old and house trained. I am keeping her with me in every room I go in. She is a sweet little gal named Mara. She is a calico which is our favorite kind of kitty. She is the only way I can stand to stay in the house while Dan is gone. I know I am a big baby...and this story will be funny a week from now...I am just not there yet :((((((((((((((((((((((((
From... A woman who is.....barricaded in the upstairs bedroom....OH MY!
Okay after rereading this post I am looking for a silver lining...and I think the new kitty may be it. After loosing Bella last fall I was reluctant to get a new cat (weak smile)
