Hopefully you all had a fun Halloween and weekend. Mine was full of that oh-so-cute grandson of mine, Griffin. He just gets funnier with every visit. I got lots of smooches and hugs and I loves you's this time around. The last time he was here he was kind of in that "I'm not hugging or kissing anybody" frame of mind. I much preferred this visit for that.
He also now automatically assumes that I'll have a surprise in my hand for him when he comes. It's my own fault because the last few times he got here I gave him a new Hot Wheel. Guess I'll need to always have some on hand. I'm sure as hell not going to disappoint him; I'm the g-ma!
Still playing mouse games at the old homestead. There were a couple of times over the weekend when I'd hear him and then find the trap open, food gone, no mouse. Last night when I was laying in bed I could have sworn I heard him and thought I also heard the trap click shut. I decided he could wait until this morning even though I knew I was running the risk of the little bugger escaping. I just didn't care enough to go look.
So this morning one of the first things I did was check the traps. Nope. No sign of anything. I must have been hearing things last night. Once I got ready for work I was sitting in the living room and started hearing noises. Went to the cupboard, and sure enough, closed trap. And this time there was a mouse inside! Yay! I put the closed trap inside a bowl, snapped a cover on it and let him go for a ride in the car on my way to work. I stopped about a mile from my house where there's a parking lot. I opened my car door and put the bowl on the ground and let him out. So funny how he scurried off. I watched him head off into the woods, probably very happy to have had a meal and to now be free again.
As far as I know, that should be it. I don't think there are any others hanging around. I haven't heard any in the walls anymore. So now maybe my kitchen can get back to normal. I'll leave the traps for a few more days, but I'm hoping the fun is over.
After doing the Halloween mani's, it was hard to think of anything to do to my nails. It also is a bit harder when Griffin is home, and Tyler had friends in and out the entire week, too. I did manage to do this one but only kept it for a day.
It's pretty enough; it's just kind of a snooze-fest. I wish I could think of something spectacular to do. This brown was in my monthly Maven box from Julep, and its name is Rachel. I stamped over that using my Ninja Polish DRK-C stamp and Essie Mirror Effects Penny Talk.
Not bad; just not impressive. I want to impress, dammit!
I'm afraid that's it for today, gang. It's time to go home, and I have the feeling like I may just doze off when I get there. Sleeping has been better the past few nights now that I have the pain pills, but it still isn't great.
