pox on pests

Wow, I didn’t realizing that I’d feel almost as much protective passion about my house as I do about my family. This evening there came a scratching, a scritch-scatch-scratching at my subfloor. Anger brewed and hissed, pissed at what could be knawing away at my house. A mouse, for sure, a mouse is crawling and chewing it’s way through my floor. I’m one angry woman, pounding and banging, to no relief, and the scripptiy-scratch keeps nipping at my patience for mother nature galore.

So, I did what I could do, pulled out the traps we needed earlier this summer, armed em up and deployed the troops. While I look forward to some morning death-delight, I really just want to grab a hammer and pulverize a small little creature that wants in out of the wet, chill air.
