I'm sure this happened because we leave the door to the backyard open for the puppy in the afternoon, sometimes for hours; she enjoys running in and out of the house) but this practice will have to stop if MICE are going to consider it an open invitation. Now we have the unfortunate task -- and enormous pain in the ass -- of catching said mouse and ensuring we are rid of all pests. I find my mind recalling the episode of Sex & the City where Mikhail Baryshnikov kills the mouse in Carrie's kitchen with a frying pan. I suppose I'll have to arm myself. I have no qualms about employing any type of mouse trap; frying pan, sticky paper, the killing kind that snap their heads off. And then I'll chuck the lifeless body in the bin with glee.
I hate uninvited guests.

I'm always on the lookout for great reading material and happened to stumble upon Three Books; a special series by NPR listing three books tied with a common theme. It caught my eye because of this theme: Three Moms Who Make Your Mothering Seem Perfect -- in honor of Mother's Day. And the books sound like highly enjoyable reads, each mom dealing with struggles within themselves and their daughter's struggles, as well as their own personal demons. Plus, if your mom is a reader, this set of three may make a wonderful gift. What a nice way to tell your mom you love her; give her these books and say, "You were the better mother."
