Mentally, emotionally, physically. It’s exhausting keeping up with the day-to-day but I have to and so I do. But I want to curl up in the dark with my puppies and sleep. Everything seems off, nothing is right. I try, I fail. Every effort unnoticed or unappreciated. All I want to do is sleep and when I do it’s never enough.
A few weeks ago I walked into the garage and saw this shadow out of the corner of my eye. If you know me at all – you know that I have terrible eye sight. In fact, I’m legally blind without corrective lenses so if you see me driving without them – be scared. At any rate – I didn’t saw anything at the time because frankly, I didn’t think Mike would believe his slight crazy, legally blind wife.
The following day – the three of us were walking up the driveway into the garage and Mike saw it. BINGO!! I wasn’t crazy. THERE WAS A MOUSE IN OUR GARAGE. Sophia freaked out. She gets this from my mother – scared of her own damn shadow. Now let’s be clear – it was only in the garage living under the stairs. Had it been in the house – I would have moved. I don’t do vermin in my home.
Mike didn’t want to kill an innocent mouse so we asked our neighbor for help. Mike took the blower and placed it on one side of the stairs effectively blocking one potential exit and leaving only one place for the little guy to get out. When the air pushed him out – our neighbor took a broom and swatted him out of the garage. Well he hit Mike’s foot. I’ve never seen the man do the River Dance but I swear to God he was 30 feet in the air. I’m still kicking myself for not recording this shit on my phone. It was HILARIOUS!!! They ended up losing him in the yard and the dogs chased him across the street.
Well – the little bugger came back. Not even a week late – Mike went go mow the back yard. Due to all the rain it had gotten really long and before he got even a third through he come bolting inside. I asked what the hell was going on and he said he saw a mouse. Said the little shit wasn’t paying rent, told me to go buy traps and one of our dogs out with him for protection. Our 12 pound Yorkie. HAHAHAHAHAHA.
