Well, here at the Daily Notes we are into Mouse Hunting. Overnight the mouse took the trap with him or her to the exit point which I happened to find by moving things out from under the restaurant shelving by the back wall. Next to the pipe that connects the hot water to the only remaining old baseboard radiators. the ones that run under the floor to ceiling windows. There was the trap with the mouse caught by the leg. Lively. Certainly not dead. Of course husband dropped him about two feet from the entrance to the house again. I think they live under the back deck but could be living in the crawl space.
I just saw the trap but when husband went down to get it- the live mouse was attached. Husband is now filling in the space around the pipe with caulk. Well, he will be. He's gone off in the car again and I have no idea when he will actually return home. He "over thought" the mouse trap. Just a simple mouse trap was all we needed. Sigh. Complicated is not something he needs these days. Just finding his way home is complicated enough.
But at least we know where the mice are entering the house. I always thought it would be the crawl space.
I am low on blood sugar this morning. Chugging down my coffee. I stuffed and taped the remaining radiator holes in the floor as they all open to the crawl space and it's easy to squeeze into that area from the garage- husband helps by leaving the garage door open all day. And sometimes all night.
I have a book to finish reading and I WAS going to the library and grocery but- feeling dizzy isn't a great combo with driving and shopping. My house if FILTHY. There...I admit it..... FILTHY.
Rather than clean all this crap- I wouldn't feel back about just loading the car and heading for Goodwill.
