Texts from Mom: The Mouse Saga

We haven't done a Texts from my Mother post in a LONG time.
The good news is she just got an iPhone. The bad news is she also got a Facebook.
I think the auto-correct feature is helping out with her typos and weird occurrences of numbers and symbols (I kinda miss them). But I think it is increasing her frequency of texting.
So is the mouse situation she has going on at home.

I know it's a little hard to follow along, so no worries if you click away. But if you do read, you're in for some MOUSE DRAMA!

And now she is sending pictures of all of the evidence.

That last part, I'm not really sure what she is trying to say...
Update...this is what she was referencing: 

And then later I find out the entire house has been changed into a giant mousetrap. 

And here is an up close of my dad's favorite trap, a mouse drowning trap. 
Complete with chocolate syrup. Or as the guy at Home Depot called it, Mouse Crack. 

We also have a situation where the squirrels are eating all of my dad's tomatoes in the back yard.
Don't get her started on that drama....


  1. Hahaha! These crack me up! I love text posts! Poor Mylie! I hope she doesn't get replaced for a better terrier. ;-)

    I loved Laura's text in the middle of the updates and all the drama. Hilarious!
