Re: RE: holiday decorating

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

Y'all - her place always looks like Better Homes & Gardens.
Unbelievable. Hard to imagine it being a mess really. She does more
laundry in a week than I do in two months. But I don't have 4 teenagers,
a million animals and a husband to mess mine up either. LOL
