"A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government."
"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. " Thomas Jefferson
We actually live in front of a rather good size field so we get these little field mice from time to time. We have glue traps all over the place with peanut butter as bait in the middle. This brave mouse has been stealing my 'Little Man's' food and leaving it in drawers and different places. I guess I need to use his dog food as bait instead of peanut butter. Misery I tell you! But I have faith that we will catch him soon!
to Spark and The Slowest Loser Team! You've found the right place for support and motivation!
As for the mouse, I would suggest a trap, if that makes you uncomfortable you can also get a humane trap and you can release the little critter back outside where he belongs (but far far away from your home!)
I am sure he is driving your doxie crazy, of course a mouse wouldn't stand a chance in my house with 7 dogs (I volunteer foster) and 3 cats!

Tiffany, I live in Alabama also. Spark is great as it has all the information you could possibly need, and if you stick to the program you will lose. Don't know what to tell ya about your mouse unless you just set a trap, usually on the back edge of a counter is good... Darlene

You might enjoy the Spark book, too. I really did. After reading that, this site and the overall plan for SparkPeople makes more sense. There is a lot here and you can pick and choose what you use. I hope you enjoy it very much! Barb
Hi all! I am Tiffany a 35 year old from Alabama! I am amazed and a little overwhelmed by this site! There is sssoooooo many options available and so many conveniences I have needed for a long time. Somehow I just happened upon it and am really glad I did. My weight has yo-yo'd over the past 11 years from 120 all the way up to 265. I weighed 120 lbs in 1999 when I was accidentally given a triple injection of Depo-Provera and my life has not been the same since! The love of my life is my 'Little Man' a 9 year old dachshund named Jackson! He has slipped off of his throne for the past week because we have had a mouse in our house that is making us ALL miserable! Who needs a cat when you have a doxie! I would love to hear any suggestions you may have on how to get rid of those pesky creatures before my little man destroys my house. I most recently lost 60 lbs before I got married 07/07/07 at 7-o-sevenish. Of course when I got in the comfort zone of marriage it all came back. I have experienced a tremendous amount of motivation since signing up on Friday and I am looking forward to my experience with you all!
