OMG! The Mouse is back!!!

For those of you that are new here - read this first.

For those of you that are STILL here - well, it hasn't been a great new year yet. I was on vacation the last week of December and returned to work on January 5th. Nothing too major to come back to at work - except they took our work from home (WFH) day away - so that's sad. For the last year, we have been able to telecommute one day each week and let me tell you, it was WONDERFUL!! The sheer fact of not having to comb my hair or get out of my jammies for one full day? It made me LURV my job all that much more. But, now there is no more WFH. I take it back, it's not sad. . . . it SUKS! Really, the price of gas has gone up AGAIN and that one day really did make a difference. And, no, we're not paying $4/gallon - YET - but still, it was nice to NOT leave the house unless absolutely necessary (i.e. lack of fudgsicles).

But, THAT is not what my blog is about tonight. No, my story of HORROR tonight is THIS: Another effing FUCKING mouse is back!!! And THAT's not even the WORST part! OH. MY. GOD. are you ready for this??

Seriously - this SHIT is NOT for the faint of heart.

I found the mouse "evidence" (sigh) In. My. Car!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh. Holy. Fucking. Baby. Jesus!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

People, seriously - I think I may have been driving around with this rodent for quite some time now! And? Let's get real here - where there's one there's more than one - yes? Anyone want to buy a 2006 Conv. Beetle Bug? I mean, I haven't really actually cleaned my car out in a really (read: never) long time.

So tonight, I decided that it would be a good night to clean everything out of my car and I discovered my CAR MATS had been CHEWED on (and NOT by Daisy!!!) And there was torn up napkins with little "teeth marks", and it was when I took my car mats out to actually VIEW the chew marks - that's when the "evidence" mouse shit fell out all over the snow!! So, I cleaned it all out - vacuumed like I've NEVER vacuumed before, and I even - oh my god - put a mouse trap INSIDE my car.

Ok - this is how tomorrow is going to go down, so for those of you that read my blog and live in the same town as me - take note. If I go out to my car tomorrow morning and there's a dead mouse (or god forbid), a LIVE mouse in the mouse trap, I. Will. Die. Literally, I will pass out and FREEZE TO DEATH in my garage. So, my fellow peeps, if you don't hear from me by 9am, call 911 and send them to the MOUSE HOUSE.

If you have any ideas on how to get rid of this NIGHTMARE that I'm living right now, please let me know!


  1. If we go out for lunch, I am so driving. That happened to another friend of mine. Mostly the mouse went in at night to keep warm. Good luck getting that little pest!!

  2. You might want to put a mouse trap outside of your car, where ever you may be sneaking in to get midnight snacks from it's burough outside of the car. Also, check your trunk and under the spare tire. Good luck!!

  3. Living in the country, I battle this shit all the time. I've never had one get in the car....yet. They hate the smell of peppermint oil, so get some and put it on cotton balls by where you think the little bastards are getting in.

  4. EW. That's not fun. I hope it goes away on its own!

  5. DeeMarie - thanks for taking me out on Friday to buy all the mouse killing stuff! Laufa - that's EXACTLY what I did today - I spent a good couple of hours out in my COLD garage cleaning up all the mouse evidence and placing traps and poison all over.
    Shonda - what a great idea! I'm going to try it!!
    HP - yeah - it's NO fun.

    UPDATE - I have placed d-con poison all over my garage - and they have literally taken the bait - hopefully they have gone OUTSIDE to die. I have not parked my car in my garage since Friday night - and I even have a trap set, INSIDE my car. PLEASE DEAR GOD - don't let me find a dead mouse in my car!!


Like what you've read? Leave a comment and tell me how FABULOUS I am - and of course,I'll agree with you! Disagree or have a different opinion? Leave that too! But play NICE in my sandbox - or I'll have Daisy and Sassy get (lick you to death) you!
