Tuesday Toot


So this week I have managed to stay up on my housework, while helping run a company and try and sell a house! I am very proud of myself, and yesterday morning we were getting ready to take Paul to work around 5am we were in a rush to get out the house, and we see a MOUSE run across the floor!!! (we live right in the forest so we have seen them around but never in the house) We are in such a hurry we don't have time to deal with it, (and I'm pissed cause my kids play on that floor and I have been trying really hard to keep it clean!) So Paul heads out the door with Jordan, and Jake and I are about to follow, then there goes the mouse again, so I grabbed Jordan's shoe, and the mouse runs into my intake vent for the heater on the floor, I was smacking the vent with the shoe, I was not going to let him get away, and I was hoping he would fall in the hole...but instead he popped his little head through the top and got whacked with the shoe, and it layed there twitching, Jake yelled "Mommy you killed the mouse?" I told him he was sleeping, so I opened the vent and grabbed its little tail run outside to the car, and yelled to Paul "Look what I got" he thought it was his coffee til he got closer then said "how the heck did you do that?" I threw the mouse into the trees across the street, said a prayer for it and we went on our way, after I scrubbed my hands like a mad woman. I feel bad in a way, I wished it would have just ran out the door, but then again this is my home and my kids are safe from that nasty little mouse and whatever disease it could have been carrying! So I did it I got rid of that mouse without using a trap! GO ME!!!

Kudos for you! I would've completely freaked out. But if my children were in danger, I'd like done the same thing.

yuck! when we lived in Ceder Glen we had a problem with mice, and unfortunately we had to use traps.

Last year Mike and I were sitting watching tv at his parents house and a mouse ran right by us! scared the begeezees out of me. Of course Terminex came the next day adn put out those sticky traps. Luckily it seems all the mice are gone from my inlaws house.

they gross me out.

You GO girl!! Your post had me crackin' up. We had a mouse once in our old house - dumb cat thought it was a toy.

Happy Tootin' Tuesday!

Mice are so awful. Glad that you got it. I live in the country and so at least 1 gets in the house every year. My girls are just terrified of them. One time we had a mouse trapped in the bathroom for hours until my husband came home from a meeting. He calmly went into the bathroom, used the toilet, and then stomped on the mouse with his shoe.

You actually grabbed a mouse by its tail?!? Wow, good for you! I would have left it to the hubby...

Well done gal,
You actually caught the mouse. I would definately be freaked out if I see one.
