Re: RE: holiday decorating

Jesse: I spent this past weekend doing pretty much the same
thing...reorganized the entire kitchen (which is supposed to be the
husband's domain but he doesn't do "deep" cleaning, if you know what I
mean)...had to drag everything out of the pantries and completely
reorganize everything which is the logical consequence of having 3 young
children put the groceries away, but I figure they need to learn how to
be responsible people so I live with having to do this every so
often...and yep...found the mice nests...two of them, one in each
pantry...ugh! what a confounded mess those critters make...you'd think
with two cats in the household this wouldn't really be an issue but then
we're talking two highly neurotic cats so who knows! And of course, once
I get on a cleaning binge, I just can't seem to stop...so then the craft
closet was next, followed by the linen closet...etc. This is probably
why I avoid cleaning...once I start there's just no end and before I
know it, the entire weekend is over!!!!

Subject: Re: RE: [CHAT] holiday decorating

Oh, no...you don't understand. Because we've been so BUSY lately,
running <br>to games, out of town on weekends, working late...etc. I
have not cooked at <br>home in I don't know HOW long. We've been eating
out (which I hate cause <br>it's expensive, and I end up eating too
much). But ANYWAY...here is my <br>story...my husband's new cat was
sniffing around the pantry door and <br>meowing. (He is MUCH, MUCH
better by the way). When I opened it, he ran <br>in...sniffing and
snooping. I thought, "hmmm, I bet he's a mouser". Living <br>in the
country, when the cooler nights hit, the field mice run in and head
<br>straight for the kitchen. So, I started digging (thinking, "this is
not <br>good, how long have I had this product? How long has this been
in here, in <br>fact, how long has it been since I cooked anything?")
So, I find a shelf <br>with, you guessed it, a MOUSE and it had built a
little nest under an old <br>box. UGHHHH. So, I pulled out EVERYTHING in
my pantry....EVERYTHING...and <br>scrubbed, and cleaned, and put new
shelf paper on, threw out old <br>boxes....AND, set a mouse trap. I
think they are cute and all, but I do NOT <br>want them in my
HOUSE.<br><br><br><br><br>>From: "Pamela J. Evans"
