Mouse update

We bought insanly expensive-high tech mouse traps--- and One dead mouse! It goes to be seen if he is the only one. We'll know after I sleep tonight. But I am wary. They say if there is one, there is another... I hear the breed....And now I must look behind the wardrobe--where he was last night-- and sweep up the mess.. Gross!

The mouse lives on.

Okay, last night we noticed that there was no bait on any of our traps, so we knew he had survived. I personally was hopeing he had gone to visit relatives in another house... anyway in the middle of the night I heard a noise in our bedroom-- THE MOUSE-- much bolder now, he was under the very large wardrobe in our bedroom. I was too scared to move, and my husband too lazy to go chase it.It took me a very long time, but I finally dozed back off to sleep-- I was awaken, by the feeling of something brushing me and I jumped up and stood on the bed yelling. Later to realize it was my husbands hand reaching for the hotwater bottle. Finally I calmed down and lay back down, but sleep was hard to find. I keep waking Mark and he got up at 4:00 and worked on his computer for a while.We went out today and got really expensive really good traps and set them. Please pray for the destruction of the mouse. It is too much for me to handle.

the mouse

Okay, we have a mouse. Last night I woke up and heard it in my room! I even saw it, so don't say that I'm imagining it. We have five mouse traps, and the little critter has eaten from them, and boldly moved from room to room. Saturday moring, I got up for work early. Got dressed and went to the hall closet for my jacket. there He was, on the curtain rod, running across my hangers. It is too disgusting for words.Today I informed my husband that the mouse and I could not both continue to live here....he is off to get new traps.

This is a picture of our house... last winter... with our Senior pastor and his wife. NO MOUSE!

I loved this quote so much I stole it off of my best friend Stephanie's Blog.
Any comments?
To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

life explained...

On the first day, God created the dog and said: 'Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. For this, I will give you a life span of twenty years.' The dog said: 'That's a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I'll give you back the other ten?' So God agreed. On the second day, God created the monkey and said: 'Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I'll give you a twenty-year life span.' The monkey said: 'Monkey tricks for twenty years? That's a pretty long time to perform. How about I give you back ten like the Dog did?' And God agreed.. On the third day, God created the cow and said: 'You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer's family. For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years.' The cow said: 'That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. How about twenty and I'll give back the other forty?' And God agreed again. On the fourth day, God created man and said: 'Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I'll give you twenty years.' But man said: 'Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?' 'Okay,' said God, 'You asked for it.' So that is why for our first twenty years we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves. For the next forty years we slave in the sun to support our family.. For the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren.. And for the last ten years we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.. Life has now been explained to you. There is no need to thank me for this valuable information. I'm doing it as a public service.
