Falling behind…

Published September 14, 2014 by Iphis of Scyros

I’ve been twenty pages behind schedule two days in a row now on this week’s reading.  I suspect I may be even further behind today, but…well, maybe I’ll make it.  Never know.  (Technically, I’m not “behind” unless I fail to finish the book and the paper on it by Thursday, but…I divided the number of pages by the number of days I had, and by that count, I’ve been twenty pages behind….)

It’s probably not fair–or accurate–of me, but I blame the mice.

They’d been making all that noise, and then…ugh.  This morning….well, I knew something had happened after I went to bed, because I’d heard one of the cats knocking something over.  So I wasn’t entirely surprised when I got up and found dead mice on the floor.  It’s just that I hadn’t expected more than one.

*shudder*

Poor little things.  They were so tiny!  Smaller than my thumb!  I wish I could have somehow convinced them to stay out of my house so my cat(s) wouldn’t have killed them.

Worst of all, I think I heard more in the kitchen just now.  I’m not sure, though.  It might have been a breeze through the open window.  I’m jumping at the tiniest sounds.  I really don’t want to clean up any more mouse corpses.

I think I’m going to go into the bathroom and turn on the fan and just sit there and try to finish my reading.  I won’t hear anything other than the fan, so whether there are more mice in the kitchen or not, I won’t hear them.

It’s no kind of solution, but if it at least lets me get my reading done…that should count for something…I hope….
