Ugh… A few weeks ago, Chad and I noticed these little moth like bugs.Â Turned out they were breeding in an unopened bag of rice!Â So I’ve cleaned out my pantry.Â Everything that was in a box or plastic bag.Â There are still a few random ones, but my mom has convinced me that they will go away as long as they have nothing else to eat.Â Needless to say I should have bought stock in Rubbermaid, as that is where everything new goes!
Plus it’s also Box Elder Bug season.Â Yuk!Â They love the south and west sides of our house. I know they are harmless, but they’re still gross when there are like 3000 on your front door.
And Today…Â I came home from workÂ all ready to replace our timer light switch, as we couldn’t turn our outside lights off.Â So I come downstairs to the Breaker box.Â Open the door… Think something smells. I wonder what that is… and without looking real close, I lean in to see if it’s coming from the box.Â Oi!!!Â It was.Â My nose was about 6″ from a dead stinky mouse!Â Yuck!!Â I called my mom, but she said she didn’t think my dad would come up and get rid of it…Â So I waited for Chad to come home.Â He is a real sport!Â
I figure though, that since I do the cooking, I can’t get rid of dead animals.Â It’s kind of a Sarbanes-Oxley control – like at work we can’t let the people who invoice have access to the general ledger.Â That was my excitement for Tuesday…
