There might be a mouse in my house...

This weekend, I'm heading to Indianapolis for a little getaway trip with my sister to celebrate my birthday (I'll be 40 next week). We're going here to do a little shopping and then just to a hotel to relax and maybe go to the pool. Anyway, tonight, I'm running around trying to do laundry, iron clothes, pack for my trip, make sure all the kids' backpacks are ready for tomorrow, etc. I walked into my bedroom and I do believe I saw something small and dark dart from my treadmill to underneath my bed. ACK! Was it a mouse? Seriously? Is there a mouse in my house? I'm sure this is not a big deal to some, but, the thought of a mouse anywhere near my bed freaks me out. I LOVE my bed. Every day I can't wait until it's night, so that I can climb into my wonderful, comfortable bed. It's my haven, my refuge...okay, I'm probably being dramatic, but, you get the point. I LOVE MY BED!

Of course, tonight of all nights, my husband is working. So, I had to get the kids (who had just went to bed) and make them all come into my room and do a search for whatever it was that I saw. Or think I saw. We found nothing. Sneaky small, dark thing! I don't know if I will be able to get in my bed to go to sleep. Do you think there's any chance that a mouse would climb onto my bed? Maybe I should google that....

I called my husband at the firehouse and he thought it was funny. I asked him to bring home some mousetraps tomorrow. When I get back from my birthday-getaway, he better have a small dark corpse of some kind to show me.

Oh, and I forgot to tell you this - underneath my bed is one of the places that I often hide birthday or Christmas gifts for the kids. They never look under my bed, and the bedskirt hides anything from sight. While my kids were crawling around looking for "small dark thing" my youngest stumbled upon his birthday gift (he will be 9 next month). He immediately knew that it must be for him and started jumping up and down, laughing.

What a night! Wish me luck that I don't get an unwanted bed partner tonight.

I know the feeling. I can't stand the thought of something small and icky wandering freely around my home. Only thing I detest worse than mice are spiders. UGH. Hope your husband has caught the little booger before you get back home.

Oh, I LOVE my bed, too! And, if I EVER thought a mouse was near it, I'd have an awful time sleeping as well!! I hope you could...and, I'm not sure I'm glad if you ever found the mouse or not! :-)

Thanks for stopping by my blog and saying HI!

Enjoyed your post on PBSkids. My daughter loves Word Girl, and I forgot that I could get online for her! Thanks for reminding me! :-)
