I DID IT

Just to ease the worry of everyone out there I'd like to announce that I purchased mouse traps today (4 of them to be exact), and I have already placed one. Yesterday I notice had a bunch (a whole bunch) of mouse poop behind my cook books (my current theory is that they like to go back there and nibble the delicious tidbits that get on the cook book pages as I'm cooking. So I got it all cleaned out and sanitized (oh crap that reminds me that I forgot to buy bleach when I was at the store), then I put everything back and this morning there was a bunch (not near as much as yesterday but still a bunch) more poop. So I moved everything to new spots so the counter was completley clean, then my smarty Casey suggested keeping everything where it was so I would know where to catch the little bugger (at least now I know where he likes to hang out), so I did. I'm expecting to hear a loud SNAP at any second. Keep your fingers crossed!

I hope you don't catch him until in the morning, then Casey can get rid of it before he goes to word!! Good luck!

I hope you hear several SNAPS between now and Friday at noon. I can't imagine sleeping on the couch (or bed) and wake up with Ralph staring me down. SCARED!

Reminds me of our rat adventures when Casey was a baby...our [partment managaer kept saying that a gerbil was lose in the apartment but we knew better and even being big and pregnant with Dan I was going so crazy thinking about that rat nibbling on the toes of my baby Casey that I finally tracked him down under the stove and smashed him with a yard stick...its the only living thing that I have ever killed with practically my bare hands!! You go girl i am right there with you!!!

Hey, I just caught a baby mouse with a sticky trap in the kitchen. Thula came running in and told me there was a mouse in the mouse trap! I waited for Stuart to get home to dispose of it. Another day in the life at St. Regis or St. Mices if you please...
