Woke up late - Work...oy! - MICE!!! - Sick/Sleeping

Today I found myself sleeping until 2pm....who does that?  I went to bed early...and yet couldnt find myself able to get up earlier than that time.  What?  Who does that?  Obviously I do.  I guess I really needed the sleep...thank heavens I didn't have work today. 

Speaking of work...I have been working for an individual and as of recently have found myself begging him to pay me.  I have worked the hours...and performance weekends...and yet I am struggling to get a hold of him to be paid.  It sort of sucks...because it is the holidays...and well you want to be spending time with family and such...and at the rate of him not responding...WHICH IS NEVER...I am now inching by.  Sometime's I wonder why I don't have a 9-5 job...wouldn't life be so much easier?

So as I am writing this post...a little mouse just tried to run into my room.  I am sorry...I can stand just about anything...but that little bugger scares the crap out of me...I am hyper-ventilating right now.  UGH!  Seriously...if anyone has any advice as to how I can get rid of mice...I have tried everything...and still taking advice.  This is also one of the down sides to NYC - The mice are in the walls...and it is difficult to get rid of...but I am working my hardest to make sure they don't continue to live in the same apartment as I.  ewww.  Just saw it again...what the CRAP!!!

I have been sick over the past couple of days...sleeping lots...but am finally feeling better today.

Wow...just hit that tired feeling...yeah I am up at 3:44am and should already be asleep....but when you wake up at 2pm in the afternoon..I guess your timing gets all messed up.

So I remember when my family lived in Texas we had a mouse in our house. And one day I was sitting at the kitchen counter and saw the mouse running across the floor. So I picked up the closest thing I could find (a lunch box) and chucked it at it. And guess what...it totally hit it and crushed it's little mouse skull and it died! It was my proudest mouse moment ever because usually I shriek and run the other way.

I hope that helps...

I was sitting in my bed one morning and feeding my baby when I saw what I first thought was a huge cocroach come out from under my bed. After closer look I discovered a baby mouse. I freaked and made my sister in law down the street come and catch it. I am freaked out with mice.

Oh Rance, I am sorry that you are sick.That is not fun. Sleep as much as you can. I am sorry about the mouse. That would totally freak me out too. I am sorry I have no advice. I would probably be standing on a chair yelling EEK!

Well if Cam was there, he would take out the BB gun and shoot it!!! :o) He has done that on several occasions, but thankfully none of them were at our house!!! He killed a few at his parents house and one in front of our house OUTSIDE in the sprinkler box. Ewww.....gross!! I would probably be like Marie and start chucking something at it, but then again you could go to the store and get a good sticky trap! They work well. At the folks house if they weren't shot to death by Cam, they got stuck on the sticky traps. Another plus to those sticky traps is that they also attract bugs!! :o) Hope you feel better soon! And, I hope your boss gets you paid!! SHEESH, doesn't he know it's Christmas time!! :o) *hugs*

So right after my son was born, we discovered a mouse in our house. We could not catch that dang mouse for two weeks! One morning we came out to the living room and discovered that it totally ate the rubber off one of my son's pacifiers! It sure was a brave mouse- ran across our curtain rods right out in the open where we could see him but was too fast for us to do anything about it. We even have two cats! Then finally one night, that dang thing got up on the side table RIGHT NEXT TO WHERE I WAS SITTING and grabbed a candy corn out of the dish! I ran and got my husband (because mice totally freak me out too) and we watched it run into our fireplace. So he told me to stand there and make sure it didn't come back out and he ran over to our neighbor's house to borrow some plywood to board that fireplace up permanently. The whole time he was gone I made our dogs sit at the edge of the fireplace and I stood on a chair shaking, literally! I swear my husband was gone for HOURS....... but he said it was only 10 minutes!!

So then, we didn't have any other mice in our house (that we knew of...) and we sold that house this summer and moved into a new one. We were sitting in the living room after the house was totally empty and clean, on the floor, and I hear "scratch, scratch, scratch" on the plywood still covering the fireplace. We got up and left and never looked back.

Gross. I feel for you.
