Setting traps!
After living here for 4 years, this past spring we had mice in this house for the first time – 3 of them! The whole ordeal of trapping them and then disposing of them fell to Keith because I was really freaked out. Somehow they get in the drop ceiling of my first floor and as I’m working in my Studio and I can hear the pitter patter of tiny feet.

Well just my luck now that Keith has already moved to Minneapolis, I heard the pitter patter again last night. After a sleepless night trying to figure out how I would avoid having to deal with this the solution came to me.

Chris will be in town Tues – Thurs for a training class so I decided I could set the traps – it was just checking them and getting rid of the sprung trap with the mouse I couldn’t do. So I set two traps this afternoon in the ceiling and will have him check them Tuesday. If that doesn’t do the trick then I’ll reset them a couple days before Keith comes home on the 20th to help me make the final move and have him check and dispose!

What a pain for this to happen now!
