Alien Invaders

Today I get a phone call from B..he is at home and in the kitchen, on top of the fridge.......is a mouse..or a very small rat. EWWWWWWW. The exterminator was called, and I just want my mommy.

About 5 years ago I had a similar problem. Neither home is a dump mind you. It's just in Florida..we have critters, and lots of them. We had a "Citrus rat" get into the attic and make it's way into our kitchen. It was later sent to rat heven by the exterminator. I hear it's a common occurance, but one I REALLY don't like. Rabies and babies. That is all they are good for.

So mighty mouse is going to keep me awake all night. I made sure all the food is closed up in tupperware and ziplocs, there's nothing to eat..but my kids. Today I might just give them up as a sacrfice, if mr. mouse will just go.

The night before, I am on the front porch having a smoke when I hear a rustling in the bushes. I step back to run in the house thinking it was an axe murder, but then I think..maybe it's a kitty, so I look out and there is this face. It's dark, is it a dog..a cat..no it's a full grown racoon!!!!!. He froze I froze, and we just stared at each other for awhile untill I took a step back and he was outta there.

I started a new post "dream on" as I have been having so many dreams, I thought I would finaly wrte them down and keep track of all my underlying psychological issues. For weeks I will dream all night, and REM sleep is supposed to be sooo good for you, but it leaves me exsusted, I don't get it.

Good Night,

Heidi

The December we camped at Bahia Honda, pre children, the racoons were practically tent mates. Cute, but very annoying.

I don't like mice and rats just scare me. A racoon would be cool though..
