What I Learned This Week

Guess what?

The mousetraps are still sitting empty.

AND, we have not seen a trace of the little sucker since that fateful night. But I’m not here to talk about that. Instead, I’m here to share what I’ve learned this week.

In no particular order, may I present what I learned this week:

1. If you have the nagging feeling that you are forgetting something, you probably are.

2. The song, “I wanna be a billionaire so freakin’ bad” is one of those songs that sticks in your head hours after hearing it.

3. When accessing Facebook from a strange computer or device, you will receive an e-mail asking if you were the one accessing your Facebook from that device?

4. National popcorn day is January 19th.

5. If you happen to be shopping at Bed, Bath and Beyond and run across a metal head messager thing ($3.99), you should TOTALLY spend the four bucks because it is the bomb diggity. (Am I too old to say “bomb diggity?”)

6. When placing a 31 order, you should insure that you have at least an hour to devote to the process. Especially if you are a crazy person for fonts and fabrics.

7. Warren Harding wore a size 14 shoe. Strange, but true.

Go ahead, Google it.

8. A bowl of fruity pebbles at 11:00 PM is never a good idea.

9. When you see – with your own eyes  – a mouse walking very casually across your living room floor, the scene will replay in your head at least 4,719 times over the next week as you continually watch your step looking for the little sucker.

That’s what I learned this week?

    When Travis was in Afghanistan, he said the mice were horrible. They were being taken over by the little critters. Plus there, they carry a lot of nasties that you don’t want near you. I had been sending him Peanut Butter Fudge since it was his most favorite dessert of all time, and he noticed that the mice seemed to try forever to get into that package. They had tried just plain peanut butter, but to no avail. He put out some of the fudge, and within 3 days time, they were almost into tripple numbers with the amount of mice they had killed. Granted he also had about 2 lbs of my fudge that I so loving slaved over to kills the little critters. He was happy to kill the mice, but asked that I would send him some more fudge that he would get to eat this time. LOL! So at any rate, you might want to try some fudge.
