My children came up with that title...well in a way they did.. Could be a great title for a book...if only I wasn't such a scaredy cat...I would probably give myself bad dreams just writing that book!!
There have been no more monster sized sounds of scampering feet across the ceiling any more. We have actually found a few dead rats in the yard...oh my gosh they were not mice they were rats....which I have been told is really the same as a mouse...they just get bigger. Who knew! A few nights ago I sat playing Mario Kart with Tim and I noticed a smell that has been hanging around the last few days and it finally hit me...it was the smell of something dead. Right away I knew what it was...but it was night time and I was NOT going into the attic at night to find a dead rat.
Next day....very busy...super busy... insanely busy...so by the time I remembered that I needed to go into the attic the kids where home from school. I climbed into the attic and smelled THE smell. So I started to look around. I found one....so I called down for someone to get a grocery bag (yea..because I am that dumb I didn't take one up with me) So I used a small block of wood up there to push this thing in the bag...and while I was walking to the attic door I noticed another one. So I called down for another bag.... Then I found another one....You see where this going right???
So after a good LONG search of the attic and NOT falling through the ceiling anywhere I left with several bags of recently..and some not so recently...departed rat/mice.
Last night my children were whispering upstairs in our loft. I passed by them with a basket full of clean laundry and my littlest looked up at me and said..."mom do you think there are more?"....I responded with "more what honey."....and she said..."more mice in the attic of death?" Some homes have charming flaws...in ours we have the attic where furry things go to die.
Thanks so much for stopping by!! If you are new to my blog I would love for you to stay a while and follow along...I promise I don't always talk about dead animals that I viciously murdered with poison ..then again the Lowe's guy told me they wouldn't smell after the died...we all lie a bit!!
