Mornings and Homeownership woes

I could find no good reason to crawl out of bed this morning. I did anyway, because it's what I do. I laid in bed for 5 minutes though, wondering what I would be accomplishing today, and didn't come up with anything. It's only Tuesday to boot.

I'm not feeling too stellar this morning either. I would think it's something I ate, but I had Spaghetti-O's for dinner.

In other 'good news', I seem to have a mold-ish problem behind in the wall in my 'half basement'. The kind where the lower half of the wall is cinder block, the upper half is framing. Anyway, there seems to be a smell (mold like) coming from the cinder block. Unfortunately, it's finished, so I'm going to need to rip off the paneling. Ugh. The windows got closed last night for the first time in a while because of the cold, so it's especially noticeable now. Owning a home can suck sometimes.

Speaking of things that suck I was down in the basement doing my workout yesterday, and it smelled like something had died. Since I knew that Spencer was in one piece, I began to investigate, and found a dead mouse. I threw him away and was washing my hands and noticed a nicely decayed mouse in the mop sink drain. Ewww. He's gone now too, but he smelled bad. I guess it's time to get some mouse traps or a cat.

In all, it's turning out to be a pretty crappy week, and it's only Tuesday.

Hey, at least it's not mold!

It's not mold in my wall. As a matter of fact, there is a vapor barrier there, so I don't think we'll be getting mold on that wall. The bad news is the smell is comming from mice droppings, so Travis is calling the exterminator. I'd be happy if he showed up today... not likely.
