We Made It

Our trip up went smoothly, no problems to report. Our new home however is another story...
It's kind of cool, unique ya know. But...
It's really really dirty.
There is orange shag carpet that's about a billion years old, and smells about a billions years old, in the bedrooms.
There are three flights of stairs to get to our second floor apartment and then another to get to our bedroom.
And we have mice.
But I guess, all in all, it's the typical U.P. apartment. Plus mice.
We think it was an old school house.
I wish I could show you some pictures but I forgot to take a bunch. I'm at Matt and Emily's right now so I could have actually showed you.
We don't have internet yet so I'm not sure when I'll be able to update next. I just wanted to give you a quick update!

Any advice on the mice?

sounds lovely!

On the mice - my mom had gotten us a sort of mouse siren thingie - kinda like those deer sirens that go on cars - but it's for mice. I thought it was a joke at first, but we've had it for, gosh, maybe six years and the only time we got a mouse in that time was when Pa unplugged it and forgot to put it back in. So I swear by it. It's just a little thing that plugs into the outlet - we keep it in the basement (that's where the mice were)

My mom got it for us, so I'm not sure where you get one, but I would guess it's near the traps. ??

You can get them at Home Depot... We had one for bats in the attic. Heidi
