Playing Catch Up

I can’t believe that I haven’t blogged in almost a week. Good grief, I’ve been missing y’all like ca-razy! Moving is insane…just fyi.  Four times in five years is enough for me! Ha!  I’m finally starting to dig out from all the boxes…and the historic snow is finally melting.

If you’d like to keep up with the decorating and updating going on over at our new house, check out The Casabella Project!

Coming up here at My Blessed Life:

  • AMAZING givewaways
  • Fun Crafts
  • And lots more!

Ridley’s 2nd birthday was on Thursday and his party is tomorrow. I can’t wait to share more about his party with you.  Fun, simple and imperfect.

I’m learning to be content with imperfection. My other choice is the crazy house. Ha!

In other news, we have mice. Oh yes, lots of mice.  We need a cat desperately, but in the meantime, I’ve become quite a mouser myself.  Two nights ago, I set traps and caught four mice.  Ick. They are so gross.

I’m raring to go with crafts and decorating for Valentine’s Day!

So, how are you?


  1. Nancy is right about the schnauzer they are great mousers. If that does not appeal to you; purchase some pepermint oil (the real stuff) and soak cotton balls and place strategicly. Mice will avoid the pepermint oil. I don’t know why but they don’t like it.

  2. I am no expert by any means, BUT I did have mice a few years ago after Christmas. I saw a few, was grossed out, but caught them. Over the school break, we went on vacation for several days. When we came home, OMG. There are no other words. They had the run of my house for a week . . . and invited all of their family and friends over too. I, on the other hand, called the exterminator. He said that if you see four, there probably are 50+ mice. I saw dozens when we came home from vacation. He told me that they have more room to run “in the insides of your home; ie. inside the walls, floors, ceilings, etc.” than out in the open. Mice can procreate within six weeks after they are born, can have up to a dozen baby mice and have between five and ten litters per year!!! So, in a matter of months, you could have hundreds and hundreds. Get ahead of this problem now!!! The exterminator strategically placed a poison (I know, I know) that would make a mouse so thirsty that he would have to evacuate your home to seek water to drink (ie. OUT OF and AWAY from your home) and then he would die within a few hours. I did not want a poison that would make mice die inside my walls! Please, please, call an exterminator! I was not sleeping for days on end because I was so scared one would get in my bed with me. Happy to say, four years and a couple of renovations later, we have never seen another mouse and mouse poison is always strategically placed around our house.

    1. Jackie, thank you SO much for taking the time to tell me your story! We will definitely be contacting an exterminator! Thank you!
