Mouse in the House

What a crazy night and morning that we had!  Jesse and I woke up in the middle of the night to the sound of a mouse trying with all his might to escape the fresh-air return in Jonah's room.  It was so loud and right on top of our heads!  Needless to say, we didn't get much sleep.  Jesse was up and out of bed more than he was in the bed.  He didn't want to open up the return and have the mouse run around in Jonah's room.

I told him to get the cat (who was in the garage), but we were both pretty sure that the mouse would run around and Kitsy would chase it and things would get toppled and broken....and maybe even bloody!

So at 3 am, we moved to the spare bedroom and slept there.  Which was difficult since I had to bring my 11 lb (not exaggerating) memory foam body pillow to a full-sized bed.  At least we couldn't hear the mouse any more.   I don't know about Jesse, but I woke up a lot.

I overslept by more than twenty minutes!  Then....while I was trying to cook my breakfast, I thought I saw something move across the floor!  Then....there it was!! A little mouse sitting by our garage door.  It was actually pretty cute!  I got Kitsy to come chase it and before I knew it...she had the thing in her mouth and was running upstairs with the mouse in her mouth!!

Jesse locked them both in the spare bedroom.....  and I had to leave for work.  So I don't know how the story ends.
