Thank Goodness for Mice

You see, if we didn't live in the country and share our bit of the range with little country mice, I wouldn't be forced to wash each and every single dish and sweep up every crumb each night, no matter how tired I am or how late it is. (Well, Kansas Dad and I share the duties, though I would like to handle it more often as there are so many things he does that I cannot do.)

I'm only being a little facetious. It's really a wonderful thing to come out in the morning to a perfectly clean kitchen. When we lived in town, I often let the dishes slide until the morning and facing them was such a sad way to start the day.


  1. I hope to know this joy soon, but I have a 10 yr old who doesn't get why the dishes need to be done every night :(

  2. Janelle, I've been thinking about what you said. I wonder if the problem is that your kids wouldn't mind having a little mouse around. I know mine would be thrilled with a glimpse and would probably be happy to leave a little something for him.


Comments make me happy; thanks for speaking up!
