When I was opening up a garbage bag filled with garage sale stuff to sort through today...I was met with a surprise. Apparently a family of mice had taken up residence. SICK! After screaming and running in to tell Dave (who replied, "Well just pick it up and get rid of it"...thinking it was dead...AS IF I would have done that anyway. He's the man for crying out loud). Once he realized that he was not going to get out of it, he came and helped me corral...yes 3 baby mice. We then found the momma with another baby. That took the longest. The vet in Dave would not let him kill the silly things (frankly I didn't want them dead either...nor did I want them in my garage). He caught them and took them out to a field and freed them. How very humane of him. I spent the rest of the day cleaning my garage because I am convinced that they infested everything (they probably didn't...but I am still going to clean it like they had...ick). That made my garage sale set up go a little slower today. Thankfully, Noah spent a good portion of the afternoon at my neighbors playing with her 2 kids. He (fortunately) slept through the mice incident. Yuck yuck yuck.
