Terrifying morning!

It has been an interesting morning in the office. We have had some friendly visitors . . . mice. So early this morning a woman came up to me and asked me to place a phone call to the trouble desk because she spotted a mouse in the building. So I placed the call. And I gave her a little tease about trying to catch it. Well, the laughter ended when 2 mice came running under my desk just a few minutes later. Granted they are tiny baby mice. But who really cares about the details – they are MICE! I am the same girl that will place a kitchen glass over a bug in our house if Jeremy is not home to kill it.
Side note: He was out of town for 5 days for work. It was during a weather change when the bugs start trying to come in. He had not sprayed in a while. So when he returned, there were about 8 drinking glasses on the floor of our living room with dead bugs under them. They had suffocated. So that’s just a little history on me. I HATE anything icky and I’m not going to have anything to do with it. I’m not going to try to kill or catch, only avoid . . . by running, climbing or shutting myself in a closet.

So now, for the past 2 hours I have been sitting in my chair at work, Indian style. My ankles are starting to hurt since I have on tall boots and I am not very comfortable. But I feel safer this way. They placed a mouse trap, loaded with peanut butter (apparently a favorite of mice) under my desk. I think hearing it snap may send me over the edge.

Oh Melodie! Mice! I don't blame you one bit. I think I might even keep a baseball bat near by.

You surely take after your Aunt Phyllis! I've been told that bugs and mice won't hurt you and to that I reply, "But they will make me hurt myself!" You will be in our prayers as you have your visit. Things are different than when we went through the adoption process but the nervousness is the same. I will never forget the home visit! I was a basket case--we had less than a 24 hour notice.
We are excited to hear about everything!
Love you both!
