Blind to the Mice

Well, one of the reasons we loved this house (besides the fact that it was in the neighborhood we wanted and they were ready to move out in three weeks) was because of the yard. It was the largest backyard we'd seen out of all the houses in this neighborhood, and it backed up to this beautiful open field that was practically assured of no development. John could hit golf balls out there like a driving range, and we wouldn't have neighbors staring at us as we grilled our steaks.

What I didn't think about was the little creatures that might live in that field. The little creatures that might want to share our house....more than just crickets and the occasional spider. And indeed, last night we caught our first mouse. We don't even have mouse traps set, it was in a glue trap we had set for ants and such in the garage. Ew, ew, ew....

Now I keep thinking I am seeing things scurrying across the room. My mind is playing tricks on me. The exterminator can't get out here soon enough!
