I Live in a Small Creature HOUSE

So I have great topics to write about, but I can't help but post this. I AM SICK OF THE BUGS! and I AM SICK OF THE MICE! Get the picture? A week ago I came home after taking Willoughby on a walk and went to throw something out under the sink when I notice something grey and moving in my trash can. Screaming I slammed the door to the cupboard shut and waited for Dhrumil to come home, all the while hearing scuttering of tiny feet. When Dhrumil got back I was so overwhelmed with mice that I hardly noticed the beautiful roses he brought home and made him get to work right away. He covered the trash can with something and brought it outside. When he came in I found out that there wasn't one mouse there were THREE MICE. That makes a grand total of 6 mice that I have encountered since living in this old farmhouse. I now have two more traps set up...

That's not all. Because it's been getting a little warmer and MUCH damper with all of the rain (making my roof leak in the bedroom, but that's another story) we have had more ants and spiders. Going downstairs in the basement is like entering spiderville. I just went down there an hour ago with my can of Raid... I left laughing thinking "I hope no Harry Potter like Spider comes to attack me for killing all it's babies" I SHOULDN'T have even thought that. While dusting about 20 minutes later I noticed something in the curtains. THE BIGGEST spider I have ever seen that hasn't been in a zoo. I screamed and ran for the Raid again. Needless to say I'm out of Raid, my dinning room smells like Raid and I'm waiting for Dhrumil to come home to throw the thing out. I don't know how I'm going to be able to sleep tonight.
