Uninvited Guest

Last night Lexi had just laid down to go to sleep, I was watching "Made of Honor" and talking to Rabu on the phone. Out of the corner of my eye I saw something scurry across the floor down the hall toward our bedrooms. I did not want to move, but I knew that I had to go get the thing out of my house...the nerve of a mouse coming to stay the night without an invitation! So Rabu told me I had to be brave and get the broom and something to catch the mouse in and go find and capture the mouse. EEEEKKKK....that is why I have a husband!! Well he was not home so I had to take care of it.

I went and got the broom and found the mouse in our bedroom, I was so glad it had not gone into Lexi's room... that could have been a disaster. So I knew it was under my dresser so I put a bath and body works bag in the corner and made some noise by the dresser hoping that the mouse would "seek shelter" in the bag. It worked!! So I put my foot on the front of the bag to close it. This was the part that I did not think through... I did not know how I was going to pick the bag up with out letting the mouse out, or it jumping out and clawing my eyes out... it was a vicious little brown mouse I am sure. I decided that I should not try to pick up and carry the bag so I kept my foot on the bag and scooted the bag out of our room and down the hall to the front door. Rabu had told me to open the front door so that I could get rid of it quickly when I had caught it. He is so smart. I scooted the bag to the front door, then as fast as I could bent down and grabbed the handle to the bag and threw the whole bag, mouse and all out on the front porch. I saw the mouse scurry away. Thank God that thing was no longer in my home!! Whew... I felt so brave and strong! :)

So if you have a mouse in your house and you need help getting rid of it, don't call me, I have already done my duty!

YIKES!! Gives me the shivers..

Glad you were able to "dispose" of the unwanted guest. We had a similar unwanted guest once when they were doing construction in Houston near the house.

Perhaps you and Rabu should consider engaging a "Pest Control Expert" to figure out how that unwanted guest came in and to prevent it from happening again..

we have one that comes every other month and sprays for spiders, I will ask him about the mouse...he had mentioned that a mouse can get through any hole that his nose can fit into...crazy thought but I believe him... he is an expert

I can't believe you found it! Those things are so stinkin' fast. You are a brave woman!

Deborah said...

Great! Those pesky visitors need to GO! Glad you have someone to investigate!
