Today, I'm tired

And not because of this little buggar:

I'm tired because I've been kept awake at night {scared stupid} by some of these little critters:

Ick. Ick. Ick.

For the past three nights, I've been kept awake by the sound of tiny toe nails scurrying across the hardwoods. At first we thought they were in the walls... but oh no, they're out here, too... among us.

The exterminator just left. He baited the attic and the basement and left us with some "glue" traps. We're supposed to leave the glue traps out at night. Delightful.

So disturbing...

The glue traps are best....I know its nasty, but, we all have them. Our little trick, in order to be more economical with our glue traps, is to cut them in half. Put them on each corner of each appliance in your home. You will get them but they come in waves during the year. You should try living at my house...we basically live in a hayfield. Whenever its cut, watch out! I know its frustrating!

Sadly, I too can relate to rodents in my home. I live in an older apartment building, and I've had two in the past six months. Glue traps are the best, and just try to remember that they are probably more scared of you than you are of them... that's what I've been told, anyway.
