Get back to where you once belonged

Yesterday R2 and I were out in the garage doing a little cleaning, OK a lot of cleaning.

I was finally putting away Hubs' fryer from Thanksgiving. It's just been sitting off to the side
waiting to be put back in it's spot.

So I was reaching behind the bumper pool table, which by the way we NEVER use, to put the base of the fryer back and when I looked to the left, I couldn't believe what my eyes saw.

A MOUSE! Thank goodness it was dead and friends you would all be so proud, I didn't even scream, just yelled EEEEWWWWWWW!!!!!

And then I did what any good wife would do, I picked up t
he phone and called Hubs. He was at baseball practice with R1 and I know he couldn't do anything to help me but I just couldn't help but share this wonderful news with him.

For the next 10 minutes I proceeded to discuss with him this dead mouse that had found it's finally resting place in my garage. And what was I going to use to get it out and where was I going to dispose of it, and I know it came from the empty lot behind the house where they were cutting down a few trees, and so on.


Finally R2 said he wanted to see the rat. I like how it went from a field mouse to a rat in 5.2 seconds.

So I pull out the table and move a few other things around and I try to pry scoop the dead rodent off the floor and onto the shovel. Success,it went right onto the shovel the first time! Then I walk into the back yard and throw the rodent onto a pile of logs in the empty lot behind my house. Thus returning it back to where it once belonged.


And in true bloggy form I didn't take a picture of the rat mouse till it was to late. (I'm really gonna have to start keeping my camera in my pocket or something.)

But here is a pict
ure of where he/she was in garage and where it's remains are still stuck to the slab!


And here is also a picture of the poison that is now out to keep the rest of his/her family from taking out residence.


Sorry mice, there is only enough room in this house for one pet and her name is Cookie!!
