Just a quick update on the mouse situation. Also, FYI, I have been using peanut butter. The piece of advice that I received the most from people re: this crisis was to USE PEANUT BUTTER. The peanut butter has been in the traps since about 10 minutes after I got home from the Home Depot that fateful night. Still nothing. The mouse guy came today. He was a little weird, but tolerable weird. He set up lots of traps and poison stations and things like that and also found a hole where he thinks mice could get in. My landlord will be patching this hole up tomorrow. The mouse guy said that there was only evidence of very light mouse activity in my apt. He only found droppings under the dishwasher and the fridge (EW). He said that my apartment was really clean for one of the apartments in my complex. I found that really odd, because I think my apartment is so gross sometimes. There is like caked on dust and dirt from years of not cleaning in some areas of the unit that sometimes makes me gag when I look at it for too long. I cleaned a lot of it up right after I moved in, but there is just so much that cleaning up all of the years of gross got old and felt like a losing battle pretty quickly. Also, now that I pretty much know I'm not going to be in this unit for *that* much longer, it makes it hard for me to care about it at all. IN CONCLUSION, it seems like the mouse problem is taken care of for now pending ME FINDING DEAD MICE AND HAVING TO PROBABLY PICK THEM UP WITH MY OWN HANDS AND PUT THEM IN SOME KIND OF A CONTAINER AND BRING THEM DOWN TWO FLIGHTS OF STAIRS AND THEN THROW THEM IN THE DUMPSTER IN SUCH A WAY THAT THEY DON'T COME BACK TO LIFE AND EAT MY FACE AND EYES OUT. But, I will cross that bridge when I get to it.
As for the knitting, I started a Pick-Me-Up dishtowel to go with the ballband dishcloth set, and that is moving along quite nicely. I will have pictures of it probably tomorrow.
