I am pleased to announce that the mouse has left the house!!! Unfortunately he did not survive the trip, so sorry for anyone pulling for the mouse, but YAY the damn thing is gone!
I have been very productive today. I tore my kitchen/power place ( The dining area of my kitchen is MY spot, where my computer and bookshelves and stuff are ) apart since the mouse had been wreaking havoc all over the place and deep cleaned it, swept and mopped it very well, and restrained myself from rearranging my personal space here until this weekend lol. I then started on the living room, getting rid of all the clutter and opening the room up some ( energy flow wise ) since Jack keeps telling me he feels like the house walls are closing in on him, and I finally figured out what he meant lol.
The energy flow of the house had gone stagnant and needed to be recharged and free flowing again. Chi, if you will. Or Mana or whatever term you use. After I got done cleaning those two rooms I broke out some aromatherapy...I made an air freshener with some sandalwood and vanilla bean oil I had and sprayed it liberally all over and wow it smelled good and felt good. Jack noticed it and commented on it all the second he walked in the door from work, saying it felt much better now. I watched his grumpy attitude he has had the last week melt away over the next hour after he got home.
I made a killer pot of homemade chicken noodle soup, always good for ails ya, which added to the aromatherapy comfort of the house. We watched some TV, managed to have some "alone time" ( Thank you Snow White DVD ) and then watched Bones and Fringe on the telly and he toddled off to bed while I cleaned the kitchen and started making my mental lists for what I need to do tomorrow. Probably finish Alex's room since we worked on it this week and got it manageable. With her 5th birthday on the 15th, I know she will be getting a new bunch of stuff so I have to make room. I also need to weed through my closet in my room and toss about half it's contents. Might as well be indoors making use of the 94 degree weather out there. Stupid warm front.
I also wanted to add that I am going to go through my follower list ( 48 of you now through Google yay! ) and check out those I have not had a chance to read yet. So I want to thank everyone for following along as I wander down my path!
I guess that about sums it up for today. I have another post meandering around in my brain but it is still working itself out.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
