This is my third November in this house and the second that I've had mice. I believe they live in the field behind my house; once it starts getting cold they look for a warmer place to winter. Yeah well this ain't no damn hotel so pack your bags and move your ass along dear mice, I have enough trouble feeding the human critters in my house. I think it's the boys room that attracts them. It's like hotel paradise for mice. They get in there and immediately text all their friends and family to invite them over, saying "holy shit man, you'll never believe the island oasis we found in this teen bedroom, there's dirty dishes to lick and half filled chip bags, clothes all over the floor to make warm snuggly nests". Before I know it they'll have squatters rights. Maybe I'll just burn the boys bedroom, which would be easier than making them clean it up.
On the laptop - I bought the HP Pavilion rather than the Toshiba. I had reserached both extensively before buying and actually had my mind made up on the Toshiba, until I got to the store. The HP felt sturdier, it has a nicer keyboard. It did however take 6 years to setup because HP puts a bunch of preloaded crap on their laptops. It's not a big deal because you can immediately remove it once you get the initial setup completed. I will admit I'm enjoying my HP experience which surprises me because I'm a die hard Dell user. Dell desktop at work (various models over the past 12 years) Dell laptop at home. I decided to go with another brand this time as Dell has lost a bit of its presitge over the last couple of years, plus they are alot pricier. So there Daffy, that's the explanation for the HP rather than the Toshiba. Also, go with the 17 inch monitor, it makes such an incredible difference in a a laptop and is not nearly as cumbersome as one would think.
Does anyone know if those high frequency mouse deterrent thingy's work? They supposedly emit a sound which deters mice from an area. I'm considering buying
Also, for those of you that comment (thank you by the way), I do try to reply if you have reply turned on. If you don't, I will reply to your comment in the comment box thingy (is there a word for that?) I think I may have scared a few soon to be new moms with my breastfeeding post. Sorry about that, just tellin it like it is. Though it appears from your comments there are a few lucky women out there that have actually experienced breastfeeding in a positive way.
I'm off to buy a can of gasoline and matches.
