A mouse update: no mice in traps today, but we are starting to find droppings around. Juice is thrilled that Soot was so helpful and plans to have her just as helpful if we need her to be. I am freaked over every little movement out of the corner of my eye. I am making plans to try and plug up some more likely holes and we are not leaving dog food out overnight anymore. We need to go get some different traps because I think they are running under the cupboards and the snap traps we have won't spring under there. I am never moving to NYC because apparently they have lots of mice there. (Every single website I read on it was geared towards New Yorkers. Sorry.)

We went to the resource center with friends from my moms group today and that was fun! They had shaving cream out for the craft and Butterfly managed to get it all over. My friend made mention about how Butterfly just really spreads herself out and boy does she ever. She is a boisterous little girl, but happy and friendly. They had a great time together and I had a nice chat. Seriously loving the resource center more this year than last. And I loved it lots last year!



  1. Ok, I can help you with a couple of things. Mice love peanut butter. A little peanut butter on the trap and you will have all the mice caught in short order.

    If you were here I would be happy to be your workout partner. Maybe we can work out some online thing.

    We look forward to seeing you again, also!

  2. Haha! Guess we were thinking along the same lines yesterday, weren't we? Yes, peanut butter is good for mice....and ours went CRAZY over flavored oatmeal packets. That's what enticed them in in the first place, and they just kept coming back for it. :) Yay for the resource center!!
