It WAS a nice round number.

My parents are here to visit us. Which is nice for many reasons... visiting their granddaughters, company while Mr. Kluges is gone on his business trip, extra help around the house....

...mouse removal...

Yeah, after several months in which our mouse count remained static at 40, it has remained so no longer. Yesterday I discovered #41 under the kitchen radiator, and my kind father disposed of it for me.

And this morning, since we reset the traps last night, he'll get to do the same with #42.

*sigh* I LIKED letting the mouse count just sit at 40; I didn't need them to try to catch up to the 42 doors!

Maybe you need to rename the house - either by number, or by rhyme. You know, House of the Mouse. Or does that sound like yo're giving in to them?

It must be rather nice to have guests who will carry out dead rodents for you.

heh heh

I'd say that the mice know that the ultimate grim reaper of death, a.k.a. me, is out of town and they are testing your resolve. (They know they can't drive me out). I'll be home soon with traps in hand and they will suffer! Ha!
