Yesterday we had a little visitor in our apartment. A mouse was discovered. I stood on a chair for a minute. Then climbed down and proceeded to figure out where it came from with Peter. Peter discovered a hole in the wall and stuffed it up with metal mesh. Hopefully the little (cute according to Peter) critter will not be coming back. The oven top has been thoroughly cleaned and the inside of the oven is next on my list of disinfecting the whole kitchen area.
I'm becoming much more calmer about rodents in my home. The worst part is to hear the sound and not see that which is making the noise. But the actual disgust has for the most part has evaporated, which shows that adaptability is possible.
