Because that one leeeetle extra day off can make a world of difference in what I can accomplish. It wouldn't work that way if I had every Monday off. I'd fill the day with things that I had to do, and then it would become just like any other day. But there's something about a holiday Monday that makes the weekend so much more relaxing.
And what's more relaxing than playing with this? BBD's Summer Basket. So much fun! And it's going rather quickly, too, considering that I haven't put that much time into it. I'm so glad that I bought this last Labor Day. It's really the perfect project for summertime.
Oh...by the way. The mouse? To steal directly from Monty Python:
He’s passed on. The mouse is no more. He has ceased to be. He's expired and gone to meet his maker. He’s a stiff. Bereft of life, he rests in peace. He’s pushing up daisies. His metabolic processes are now history. He’s off the twig. He's kicked the bucket, he's shuffled off his mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisible. HE IS AN EX-MOUSE.
None the less, I'm taking the advice of many of you wise bloggers and not fooling myself into thinking that there was only one mouse. I can HOPE that there was only one, but I'm going to keep the traps around for a while.
