    Wow, sneaky little things aren't they? I was playing halo one time in my living room and watched the mouse we had been tracking for months waltz behind the entertainment center. I suddenly found myself acting out a"secret agent" blocking off the entryways and setting a trap the only way out. I was proud of myself, haha. Glad you found the problem. They are pesky little things.

    When I read that it scared the crap out of you I chuckled to myself and thought of calling you the elephant man. Good thing I didn't... ha.

    But seriously, land lord should be paying for pest control or at least reimbursing you for the traps.

    The plans are coming along. We pretty much just have the small details to work out, like picking songs and stuff like that. Only 3 months to go! We're both really excited!

    Mine is 3 months away. There's so much to think about! It seems like we've done most of it, but there's still so much little stuff to plan and think about! Congrats to you!!

    Thanks for that tip. I think I'll double up and use some foil as deep as I can get it in the hole, then cover it up with the foam.

    I can see around the hole where it was covered up before with foam, so I guess that's just a temporary fix.

    The first apartment my wife and I rented had mice in it and I stuffed Chore Boy in every hole I found. Steel wool is a good alternative too!

    Off topic, congrats on the weddings for you and ChevyPrincess. May both couples have a loving and long lasting union. Man Congrats to all the married people on this board. It ain't easy, but without my wife, I feel like I have no purpose anymore. Her and the kids give me reason to get up and go to work even when I don't feel like it.

    fyi i've always heard that using fabric softener sheets for a dryer can deter mice as they dont like the smell. i have em placed thoughout the house as i rent an old farm house with lots of holes in the basement for the little buggers to get in. especially in this cold winter!
