The easiest solution is just plug both in, and if u have to take out the batteries of the wireless if it bothers her cuz she bats it around or w/e. The main thing is how crazy/OCD your mom is which Im sure you know. If your mom is gonna flip out just try to find some solution where she thinks she won so you don't lose access or create problems. If she is reasonable explain to her how the cord doesn't matter and how to set up a bungee. I'm not trying to be a jerk but when I hear something like "a mouse cord hurts my hand" it says the problem isnt with the mouse. I had to deal with all sorts of craziness like this growing up and your best bet is to just go with it until you can get your own PC and try to satisfy w/e whims your mom wants even if it sound stupid or makes no sense, for your own sake.
I could be completely misreading this too but thats my perspective lol.

It isn't really that. I can see where my mom is coming from if she has to work on a computer for 4 or 5 hours straight something small like that could get annoying. I think she has just used garbage quality wired mice that have cords that get tangled up so it does actually take a little effort to move it.

You can get a mouse bungee like this one: http://www.google.com/products/catalog?hl=en&rlz=1C2ECSB_enUS464US464&gs_upl=1604l15646l0l16723l46l25l17l0l0l0l271l3136l7.15.2l38l0&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.,cf.osb&biw=935&bih=914&q=mouse+cord+bungee&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=12596364786254447576&sa=X&ei=Av4JT6mjDsLUgQe1hYGsAQ&ved=0CDUQ8wIwAA

It will hold the mouse cable so you don't have to pull its weight every time you move the mouse. Or if you don't want to spend any money, just tape the cable to the desk with enough slack on the cable towards the mouse to be able to move it freely.

From the hardware side, there are no problems with using two mice on the same pc. I use a cordless mouse as "remote control" in addition to my main corded mouse. Switch off the cordless mouse during gaming, so it does not mess up your aim if you bump the desk.

The only problem you might run into is sensitivity. Usually you can't adjust sensitivity individually for both mice. Running both mice at the same DPI would be nice, otherwise you will have to rely on ingame settings and accept annoying mouse speeds in windows for the cable mouse.

PS: Once you get a nice, fast gaming mousepad, your mom might realize that there are more effective ways to combat mous drag then using a cordless piece of lead.
