Tonight I'm posting Cheryl's birthday card!! She's so sweet and I bought her a giant Halloween/Birthday cupcake. I also gave her last year's birthday card as a little joke. Better late than never. She's a real peach. Happy Birthday Cheryl. You totally rock girlfriend!!
First up....Mouse update:
Went to Home Depot late this afternoon. Did you know there's like 10-15 choices in the mouse trap section? I spent $55 at the *man's store*. Can you say OUCH?? I did get a fancy furnace filter, dusting clothes, Oust candle, kitchen wastebasket, windshield wiper fluid, and a variety of mouse traps. Yikes it adds up quickly but I seriously went for a mouse trap or two. I've been reading the directions on each package and I can't believe Ortho even has a mice/rat Help Line. WOW!! Wish me luck tonight on "there's a mouse in the house". I am still so grossed out and so creeped out when I'm upstairs or in my nice comfy king-size bed. I first picked up the standard mouse traps 4/$1.99. Then I asked for help and went to the specific isle (man that store is SO HUGE and SO OVERWHELMING). I also picked up the new Ortho one that's been advertised on national TV a lot lately. That one cost $7.99 (2-pack) and I would say its the Cadilac of mouse traps but cost over $4.00 per mouse with sales tax!! We consumers have to help Ortho pay for advertising dollars. One small problem occurred to me when I pulled in my driveway...I don't have any cheese for my traps but peanut butter will work. So many options. I hope it (and please NOT they) bites tonight and dies. LOL!!
Now for the Halloweeen party!! I got there at 5 pm to set up. It was lots of fun and I SO enjoyed seeing everyone. The potluck supper was delicious and what a spread we had. I got home a little before 3:00 am on Sunday!! It took me SO long to pick up everything and clean (move tables, wipe things off, and vacumn). My dancing friend Gwenie helped me but she wouldn't dance for me. Carpet doesn't work. Darn I should have suggested she get on the tables!! I'd like to personally thank all my guests for helping out with the food and for coming to the party. The white elephant game was fun and so was the card swap. Teaching is fun but its certainly hard work. It was so hard for me to stay awake for the 26 mile drive home. It was pouring out and I was totally wiped out. Anyhoooo...I loved it. Today I hung Mr. Bones up on my front door. I splurged for a few Martha Stewart items this year!!
Anyway its time for bed. Have a great week. Tami
