When You Get A Mouse in The Van

That time there was A Mouse in the Van.

The actual text message conversation about the mouse.  Yep.  This is how we all felt.]
Wednesday morning we hopped in the car for school drop off when I noticed my large zippered bag of almonds was tipped over and open.  #Nuts I leaned over to pick it up and thought it strange not a nut was scattered about.  I wracked my brain and did not remember finishing them and know my kids don’t like them and then out of a horror movie, the music duh-duh-duh started.  
If I didn’t eat them and my kids didn’t eat them and there was none on the floor…there was most certainly a mouse in the car.  Now you might think that is a stretch but we live on a cornfield and although #thankthegoodlord we have never had a mouse in our house, we have had them in our garage on occasion.  I had grabbed the stroller from the garage and put it in the back of the car and I think it hopped a ride.  When I went back to investigate that area, where the stroller was, there was droppings everywhere #eww #cleanstat.  
Needless to say, I called Scott in a panic all the while driving thinking things were brushing my ankles because I have had an ankle run-in with a mouse before.  I was at my Grandma’s in the country and a little mouse nibbled on my heel #truestory. 
I shared all of this on Instagram stories and learned in fact mice often get into vehicles and can be extremely destructive like eat car upholstery, chew wires and one even pooped in someone’s designer purse #no.  So I went to Hy-vee and grabbed traps and dryer sheets (because they hate those) and I went to war with that mouse meaning I got it all set up in the van and then waited for my husband to get home ;)!  
I am 99% sure he did not believe me but set 4 more traps in the van for a total of 8 and left it for the night…
And guess what we caught Mr mouse in the van UNDER MY SEAT and I have heebeejeebees just thinking about it. 
We have one trap still in the way back in case he has a partner and I pray he doesn’t because we are all a little traumatized by the ordeal.  Vera and I both did a looksie before tiptoeing in and I kept wanting to drive with my feet on the dash ever since. 
So, there you go, a quick story to make you feel better today!  

Until next time keep on keeping on with a simple purposeful life!
