I think we have a mouse...

No really.  A real one.  And I should probably say that I KNOW we have a mouse.
I think he likes chocolate.  Which means--this is War!   I always thought terriers were rodent hunters but Lexi seems to really like our new houseguest.  Anyone have a good mouser for rent?  I am ready to trade in my not-so-good mouser of a dog for a good cat.  Any takers?

Black Friday

I must say, I stayed in yesterday for Black Friday.  I am more of a cyber-Monday kind of girl and there really wasn't anything that we absolutely had to have.  Anyone brave the crowds yesterday?

What I'm Reading Now

We have finally settled back in after returning from our trip and the book I picked up is the Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger.  This book is about a librarian named Henry DeTamble who involuntarily travels through time and his love affair with an artist named Clare.  I have been wanting to read this book for a while now and I can't wait to get into it.  I will keep you posted!
