Mouse House


my patience.

You know, the thing that helps you act in a somewhat calm, loving and rational way?

Mine is missing.

This morning was basketball and I could not get these boys up and ready. By the time we got into the car, I had already acted like a raving lunatic.

Just perfect.

Alex had a pretty good game...not great, but if you refuse to eat breakfast you tend to run out of steam, especially if you have blood sugar issues.

Ah well. Live and learn.

So, yesterday I put the summer bedding back on the bed. Maggie likes it.


I also made a batch of the very, very best oatmeal white chocolate chip cookies...

...and Alex got new size 13's.

THEN, last night in the dead of night...2:15am to be exact, I woke up to a rather large ruckus in the front of the house.

If I hadn't been so exhausted, I might've been afraid, but I honestly just laid there thinking, 'take it all.'

It kept going on and on, so I got out of bed and figured out it was my cats...who had cornered a mouse. have GOT to be kidding me. A the the middle of the night? A husband across the ocean and there is a MY HOUSE?

Acting as butch as I possibly could, I opened the slider, swished them with a broom and out they all tumbled.

Oh my.

So now I sit here and think....did one of them bring the mouse in earlier or are there more IN my house?


We have another game later this afternoon. It's already in the 90's here, so we're hanging out at home until then...I am keeping my cats close by. Just in case.



  1. It could be worse...

    A cat chasing a mouse in Tirana's main power station caused a 72-hour blackout across parts of the Albanian capital, the electricity company said on Friday.

    "A cat and a mouse ran into the high-voltage cables," a company spokeswoman said, showing pictures of the electrocuted animals. "We took pictures because we've never had anything like this."

    Albanians complain bitterly about the power cuts that have plagued them for decades, and are mostly blamed on drought and the dilapidation of the communist-era grid. Most homes and shops in Tirana rely on petrol generators.

  2. Your cats are suppose to leave their mice as gift for you at your feet, or maybe on your nice bed? My kids want to know if the mouse was decapitated?
