Good morning! I'm actually feeling human today! Not crabby. Not pukey. And I must say it's a vast improvement over the past four or five days!

I have to clean the house today, and I'm lacking motivation. It must be done, though. The kitchen hasn't had a really good cleaning in a couple of weeks. I've kept it sanitary, it just needs some extra attention. I know there are things in the fridge that need tossed, the front of the cabinets need wiped down, the counter tops need to be scrubbed, stuff like that. Not exactly what I want to do today. *sigh*

Uh-oh. Now I need to double check tonight. I won't be home to see it, so I better make sure it records.

That's an interesting combo..would havd never considerd it before.

I'm a little disappointed. I know it's the same color as usual (they have some formula for me written down on my "bio") but it is WAY dark.

Oh well. it'll fade some.

I went and caught it.
WHEW!
Go home and do it fast.

So I forgot to mention that we have a mouse at the store.
It eats soap. Only one scent. I don't get it...
I would think it would make the little devil sick.

So Laura bought a have a heart trap. It's transparent green. Of course he has to be caught on a day when I have to release him!

I wasn't scared but a little nervous. Man...
Poor little devil was shaking and a wreck.
After I figured out how to open the door I figured he'd RUN out of there.
no...he takes his time and drags the cheese WITH him! Kind of funny and cute like "this is my prize for being trapped in there for hours"

Hopefully he won't come back. I went way out in the parking lot and let him go in some bushes. No clue if that is "far" to a mouse or not.

I got my hair trimmed and colored too...I had her weave in Black, so it is not BLACK, but darker than it was

It does seem fun. I'm just not excited at the idea of sitting out there for 4-5 hours at night.

I can see that part of it. Kind of dull after you've already worked a full day!

Yeah. I saw them. Cute but nothing to die for. I think I really just like the kooky cat and dog. They've got a new designer that has a totally different style.

I agree. The little girl w/ the kitty is cute but I don't love people like that, either.
I do think the bunny is cute.

Sprinkle all the way!

Edie I'm glad to hear you "saved" the mouse. I cant' believe he was eating soap. You'd think that would have made him very sick.

Me, too.
Laura's soaps are all natural...nothing toxic in there to make it sick, but still.

It was green tea & patchouli.
I wouldn't guess that would taste too good...

How cute that he dragged the cheese with him! LOL! I hope the bushes are far enough away that he doesn't come back. And he ate soap? How strange! I'd think it would make him sick. Or bubbly.

Mom called this morning to report that Dad killed a rattlesnake on their backporch this morning. I guess last week's rain really brought them out! In all the years they've lived in their house they have never seen a rattler. Copperheads, yes, but no rattlers. Thankfully it was small enough that Dad was able to pin it down with a tool and stomp it's head since he didn't have anything else handy to kill it with, but still. *shudder*

So the ground is too saturated for them to stay IN the ground?

Oh man...that's some freaky stuff! good for dad.
I think "small" doesn't count when it's a snake!

Well, we really don't have any topsoil to speak of, probably only about an inch or so and then you hit solid rock. Lots of limestone around here - very "holey" rocks. I think the snakes and other critters were displaced by all the rain, but everything is dry again now. There was just so much flooding that they were washed to placed they don't usually go, or they crawled to higher ground and stayed there. And you're right - small doesn't count when it's a snake! A snake of any size is still a friggin' snake! And the only good snake is a dead snake!

I sure hate to kill anything but if they can't understand OUTside from INside then tough luck.

I do quite a bit of catch and release but I'm not sure I would w/ a snake!!!

If it's venomous, it dies. Inside. Outside. Doesn't matter. End of story.

I'll catch and release lizards and crickets that I find in the house. Spiders usually get squished unless they are tiny. I'll let the tiny ones live in peace. The cat usually catches bugs before I find them, so they don't stand a chance. I managed to get a baby gecko away from her the other night and set it free. I'm not sure if it was injured or just in shock, but I set if free anyway. Hopefully it recovered enough to scurry to safety before something else came along to eat it.
