Mouse poop is gross!


* This picture has nothing to do with my post. I’m sure you’ll understand why.

I’ve started working on decluttering the house.

Crystal is moving back home in a few weeks so everything we’ve stored in her room for the last year has to find a new home.

A lot of the stuff is actually for the bathrooms. Tile, fixtures, sinks and what have you.

Henry suggested clearing out the bench area in the garage. This is where I used to store my gardening supplies before he made me my lovely potting/bike shed.

I started clearing things out.

I found lots of pots, bowls, old tools, etc.

I also found. . .

You guessed it. MOUSE POOP!!!

Ugh.

I ran to the house to scrub my hands, put on plastic gloves and refill my water/bleach bottle.

Shudder. . .

The mice themselves don’t bother me, but cleaning up the poop!

I sprayed all surfaces heavily with the bleach water.

Now I’m letting it sit.

I think it needs to sit until tomorrow. You know, for the best possible disinfection power.

Truthfully I’d rather not face it tonight so I think I’m just going to make a cup of tea, and take that along with my book and the shortbread cookies I made on Thursday to bed.


I think he was worried I’d make him clean it up.

Two more days of school left!

Whoo Hoo!
