I'm too lazy to look up the week number.
So, anyway, this past week...
I sent my edited copy of Up Wish Creek off to the editor for her second round of notes. Fingers crossed that when it comes back on the 30th, there is very little pink ink.
After I sent that off, I pretty much did nothing writerly. I watched a lot of Olympics. Read a little. Did some marketing stuff. Took some walks. Went fishing. Caught up on some cleaning. Vegged.
Yesterday, Kira jumped and went after something. Out of the corner of his eye, Hubs thought he saw a mouse run under the fridge, but he wasn't sure. We moved the fridge. Yuck. No mouse, but tons of dust bunnies. I killed those. Then I went through all the cupboards looking for signs of mouse infestation. Sure enough, I found it. Yup, the mice are back. So, I took all the stuff out of the cupboards that the mice can access, washed everything, and set snap traps in the empty drawers. I also found where they might be coming in again... still... Behind the drawers, there's like a half-inch gap between the wall and where the cabinetry begins. About three feet worth on each side. I'll need to fill all that with steel wool, but not now. I am so not in the mood to remove all the drawers, crawl around on the floor, and stuff steel wool in 6ft worth of gap. Steel wool is not the nicest stuff to stuff. Ya know? Anyway, I'll get to that once we think we've gotten the majority of the mice out of the walls. Got two of the little bastards last night. Almost got a third, but he managed to chew himself off the sticky trap. (For the record, I hate catching mice on sticky traps. The sticky traps are for spiders.) There are now two snaps traps in the closet where Houdini mouse made his escape.
Living in the woods is fun.
What's going on in your world?
