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.

What a weekend!

Friday to Monday is our senior teen camp, held at our youth leader's home. Our activites Friday went great! The gorgeous scenery of the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, folowed by great food and then bowling. Saturday we went to Belfast (Dundonald) to go putt-putt golfing and iceskating. Great fun, and as we were just finishing iceskating, Mark and I --hand-in-hand decided to take one more lap around the rink. The ice was quite choppy as it had been some time since they had cleaned the ice. Mark hit a hole in the ice, and valiantly tried to keep me from getting hurt as we fell. I managed to get up with only a few bruises-- to see my husband still on the ice. I knew when the entire rink stopped and Mark did not get up that something was really wrong. We had a lovely free ride in the ambulance (I hate socialism, but love social health care this weekend) to the hospital where we discovered that Mark's ankle is broken. He proceeds to get back from the hospital, and then preach his sermon he was scheduled for at the teen camp. In great pain, we made it to church (morphine from yesterday having long worn off). Sunday night he preached sitting down by the communion table with his foot propped up. For any of you that know my family, you may be counting how many falls the Wolf family has had in the last few months. First Rachelle falls on a sky slope-- to be followed by knee surgury. My mom almost dies falling down our basement steps, shattering her wrist and having surgery that included a metal plate etc... Then Garen falls from a 10 foot ladder at work, breaking his leg in several places.
And now Mark.
Warning: Avoid being around my family. We all will appreciate your prayers for recovery.

Family left for home

Grandma, & Nancy and John left yesterday to go back home. I feel a large loss as I get up this morning. It is kindof an alone feeling. Just Mark, me and God. I don't know how many times I have been sitting on the GBS bus and heard Dad say that someday we'd all be out there with just us and Jesus; but here I am. This is the real world. This is where you prove that God is enough.

But I digress. I really do miss Gram, Nancy and John. We had a great time doing touristing things. It was great. I really do live in one of the most beautiful places in the world. God has blessed. We live on one of the top 10 senic coasts in the world. And it has castles to boot!
As you can see-- mixed emotions. I miss them and am glad they came!

an entry-- can you believe it!

For anyone who would actully even check this blog. I have finally found time to post! Things are going fine here. The last 2 weeks have been youth camps, and the best sister-in-law in the world--Crystal-- was here to speak. She did a great job, but even more I needed her! and really enjoyed her being a part of my life for a while again!

Grandma Parsons will be here Saturday, and my aunt Nancy and Uncle John next week!
I love the company and showing them all the touristy things!

I love summer-- I actually had time to clean out my cabinets. I am jealous that my dad and his crew are having christmas program meetings without me. But such is life!
Love you all!

This blog will not be updated often

Okay, blogging isn't for me. Many of you have asked to see my blog, which I haven't answered, because as you can see, I never post. I am very busy, and this just has fallen by the wayside. So I don't even promise 1 post a year. But here it is, open to all!
Best wishes
