Day 12 of 56: Oops 1/?

Well, crap. As I’m starting to write this it’s 00:30 1 April. Oops.

As I wrote before, I have a mouse/mice under my bathroom sink. Every once in a while I can hear them chewing things. Well, today I heard at least two of them fucking around in there, in the middle of the day.

Thankfully when I went shopping yesterday I picked up some peppermint oil, so I mixed 25 drops with about 4oz of water and sprayed that all under there. I’m a little concerned with the fumes from the oil affecting Athena, but everything I can find suggests ill effects when in a diffuser, not when mixed with water and allowed to naturally evaporate. If I’m wrong, let me know. I don’t want to hurt my baby, but I need to discourage mice from living in my house. Soon I’ll spray some peppermint under the house to try to get them out. I don’t want to kill them, I just want them out of my space.

Finished skimming the reading for this task in my business ethics class (SO DRY AND BORING) and am going to start building the assignment tomorrow.

Did a lot of DS9 watching, mostly instead of doing classwork/chores. I’ve watched the series before so it should be background material, but I just get so invested in everything.

Turnip’s doctor hasn’t approved his second shipment of special food, so in the morning I am going to have to give him Friskie’s. Still wet food so it should help with his urine balance (high concentration due to not enough water), but it won’t help with dissolving those blasted bladder stones.

Gave Athena one of the yarn ball poof things, sprayed with a few liquid catnip doses, and remembered that she does in fact like it. I need to find a way to get her more active, maybe some catnip toys that she likes will give her some more physical activity. She chonky. Even with less than half the recommended amount of food. I need to find a way to get her moving more instead of just sleeping all day. When she stands on me, being less chonk would be great. She has tiny feet, and 15 pound of chonk in one spot HURTS LIKE HELL.

My GM is holding a call on Friday about the closure, so most of the day I’ve been freaking out about the virus and what that means for the hospitality industry.
Sorry to make this not a very interesting post, today has been weird in a mental health kind of way.

Turnip is still loving his yarn ball poof thing and will slam headfirst into a cardboard box to attack it, no additional catnip spray required. So there’s an adorable thing that keeps happening. It’s the little things.

That’s it for me today, please enjoy this GIF and I’ll scream into the abyss tomorrow.
