I have done nothing for two days but think about/obsess over/talk about/cry about mice.
I don’t think there’s anything I hate more than mice right now. They have taken over. The pest control said they cannot deem it an actual infestation yet…but he assured me its close.
Its 5pm. I am about to call my kids in from outside to get ready for church. My nose hairs are burned out from using so much Clorox today. I have cleaned a lot of the main floor…everywhere I see mouse evidence gets vacuumed and Cloroxed. There is literally mouse droppings everywhere…on the curtains…the VINTAGE curtains, behind the washer and dryer, under the chairs, on the windowsill, counters, cupboards. I hate this so bad. Any possible surface you could think of…its been pooped on.
I’ve cried a lot today. I want my mom. I want to move. I want security. I want the HOA to understand the severity of this situation and have someone check the whole building for holes or cracks where they can come in. My eyes hurt from Clorox and crying.

Oh, and also we caught a snake. Like mice weren’t bad enough. Supposedly they follow the mice. Yay for the food chain. Right?! At least it was only in the garage, but seriously….I’m hanging by a thread with this mouse business. A thread. A thin thread. I’m seconds away from throwing my kids in the car and fleeing back to the Midwest. Seconds. Fleeing seems the only thing that can fix things right now.
One happy note: well two I guess…One: I hired a cleaner to come help clean up the mess. Something about having a backup coming gives me hope. Two: my house…where I have cleaned…is very very clean.
