Too Sexy For My Job


So I'm sitting at my desk (yesterday), having a good hair day, constantly looking out the window and wondering what I'm doing here. The weather is absolutely gorgeous outside and me and my cute self are stuck inside. The world needs to see me but I have code to write!

The pic you see here was taken yesterday evening outside of Lowe's. Hubby and I want to repaint the living room so we were looking at paint swatches. If you look closely you'll see my belly button poking out. (This weekend I'll be four months.)

Oh, I haven't updated you lately on the rats. You may remember that we caught one a while back. I think it was last week that we caught another. I heard a lot of rustling and then K was calling me downstairs. We had left out some traps cause we knew there was at least one critter left. Wouldn't you know one got stuck on the glue trap with all fours! It was trying to get away but of course it couldn't do anything but make noise. It totally grossed me out. K took a mop and a broom and smooshed him in the middle. Then we slid it to the front door and used a shovel to pick it up and put it in the trash bin (fortunately it was garbage day). I thought that was the end of it until the next day we started to smell something funny. About a week before we had finally put out rat poison as a last resort. Something ate it all up and we believe that's what we've been smelling. Every day, as long as we're home, the windows go open and the candles are lit. I think the smell is almost all gone now.

ShellyP is a cute pregnant lady. My poor expectant co-worker is doing her best to hang in there at work.

As for the Disney World (mouse-rat situation), wire mesh may help. If the wire mesh covers any openings on the outside of the home where there are gaps (e.g. between garage door and garage floor) or in the inside of the home (e.g. between the drywall and the pipes under a sink) and over heating/air conditioning vents, this may prevent Mickey and Minnie from entering the home at all. The traps and poison only work for so long, but a closed off entry works best. Disney World can be fun, but just not at our homes.

Awww...such a nice pic! How've you been feeling?

Ughh! Rats are so nasty, gave me the shivers just reading that! Fingers crossed the smell is all gone. I'm feeling your pain though, we're on mouse patrol over at our apartment!

After reading this post I'm simply grossed out and keep flinching at the thought of those rats.

What a cute picture -- you do make a cute pregnant lady.
