Mice invaded our home this fall, but we think we’ve finally got the upper hand after closing all the heater vents. The mice used them as convenient highways around/under our house. Since we don’t want to smell heated mouse shit, we haven’t been able to use the heater. We still don’t know how to get rid of it. Any suggestions?
In the meantime, it’s gotten so icy in our house that we’ve been using hot water bottles under piles of blankets, warm clothes and slipper socks, crackling fires and a space heater. We even researched a new dog door to reduce the cold air entering. But we were still shivering. I dug out our old warming blankets from the garage, but they no longer worked (even after following the company’s troubleshooting).
Mama and I finally broke down and took a trip to Bed, Bath and Beyond. We went wild with coupons and got new sheets — fleece for Mama and flannel for me. Then we picked out super soft and plush warming blankets for our beds, and they are so toasty. We love them and have slept much better now that we’re finally warmed all night long. Mama says sleeping in her bed is like being hugged by a cloud! Today’s #OneGoodThing was waking up warm and cozy!
