Not a creature was stirring not even a mouse.....

YEAH RIGHT! We all know how this Christmas story begins, but this holiday season it does not stand true in my house. We have been over taken by a little creature I'd like to call Ratatouille. It all started a few weeks ago when I was packing lunch for work and opened a kitchen cabinet door and saw an unexpected pair of big brown eyes looking back at me from the top of a Cheese Its box. Startled, I screamed a blood curdling scream, JUMPED, and ran out of the room! I desperately needed to finish getting ready for work but couldn't get myself down from the chair i was squatting on in the living room. I called my hubby in a panic only to have him laugh hysterically, then I called my mom, our next door neighbor, who came over with a hand full of mouse traps.

She set a few of the traps for me and as we were both peering into the cabinet she saw the mouse, we both screamed, jumped, and ran out of the room! Needless to say I DO NOT like mice. No matter how many Disney movies or Christmas stories they may be in, they are not my idea of a furry little friend.

And on top of it all this little pest has been stealing and hiding our dogs food! We have found it in the most random place! In towels stacking on a shelf, a vase filled to the brim, and oddest of all, our printer! Daniel had to take the whole thing apart because he would hear the rattling but couldn't see the dog food! Needless to say I have had it up to here (hand gesture to my head height) with this little booger! First I was scared, now, I'm flat out pissed! I told Daniel not to be surprised if he sees me chase it down with a broom or a butcher knife!
