Does adding "PLUS!" to something always make it better? I see that on bottles like Centrum PLUS. What if it really meant "everything Centrum usually offers PLUS you'll be barfing for 24hrs?" No one knows, we just take their word for it. We are much too trusting me thinks.
In any event, the PLUS! here is all good.... that is if you think me rambling on about trivial things is good. Which you do.
So, the mouse situation is bittersweet. Sweet because, so far, we've caught 14. Bitter because, so far, we've caught 14. Typing that out makes it all too real for me. ::cringing::
One tragic story.... that first night that "Jerry" went running across the family room floor I got out these things I had gotten at WalMart. You plug them in and they send out some kind of ultrasonic super anti-mouse vibe that the mice hate so they stay away/go outside so the snakes can eat them. I thought that for sure I was safe then because you only need one per room and I had plugged in two. So then I went upstairs and looked off the balcony thing that looks down onto the family room. "Jerry" came scampering out of his hiding place a few minutes later and literally SAT under one of those plug in deals and cleaned his whiskers for a minute. It was like he made it a point to get as close as mousely possible to that thing and throw it in my face that he was obviously unaffected. When I told this to LeeAnn she thought that maybe the mouse was insane already (because of how bold he was to scamper out in full view anyway) and that is why he was not reacting to the noise.
I poopooed her idea at first. I was thinking he had extra brain power which is why he had avoided the 17 traps set down in the basement. Sadly for "Jerry," LeeAnn was right. Yesterday morning we found that "Jerry" had committed suey in Maggie's water dish. ::shuddering at the memory of finding him:: The pressures of being a crazy mouse in the Anderson home had become too much. Plus, he wanted to go out on his own terms… not with peanut butter on his snout. I can respect him for that. But man was that gross.
Speaking of “Jerry,” is it normal for a two year old girl to be obsessed with the cartoon Tom & Jerry? At least once a day I hear “Mom, I wan watch Chom & Jerry and have carrots & dip.” That’s the other thing… carrots & dip. What is the deal here? I will say it is quite nummy though. I mix equal portions of a good ranch veggie dip with cottage cheese and it is nothing short of heavenly. I learned it from my SIL who doesn’t blog. ::waving at SM2003::
So the freakiest thing happened yesterday. I had these HUGE bottles of Fructis shampoo & conditioner that I had gotten at Costco a while back. HUGE. K, so, are you sitting down? The shampoo & conditioner both ran out at the EXACT SAME TIME. Be honest here… how often does that happen? Never? And you’d think with them being gigantic bottles that would make it even less likely. Anyway, it weirded me out for the rest of the day. To those of you who are thinking “So?” I say you are entirely unobservant and possibly dead inside. To those who are like “Wha? That’s CRAYZEEE!” I say Namaste.
