We were sitting in the tabernacle at camp. It was sweltering hot - like 130 degrees at least. Ok, maybe not. It WAS however in the mid 90's. Anyways, the preacher had started preaching - and what fantastic preaching we had at camp this year. But, I digress.

Alyssa leaned over and told me she was going to go to sleep. I assured her that she wasn't. She then looked up and me and said, "Fine. I'll just make allot of noise then." I again assured her that she wasn't going to do any such thing!!!

Time for Drastic Action

I'm not sure who will take the drastic action just yet but for certain someone has to. Sunday afternoon we found this under our bed.

I'm still fairly certain its a strong sign that its time to move on. This trailer/parsonage is falling apart around us and we've put many many "band aids" on it in the last 5 years. This is pretty much the last straw for me. We've endured rats, mice, chipmunks, bugs of all kinds, severe lack of water and other things. I have dealt with all of those and been "Ok" with it. This, however I cannot handle. My home is my shelter and my respite and knowing that there are snakes here is more than I can handle. So, this big guy got thrown into the woods. Then his three brothers who were found outside the next day lost their heads. Yuck Yuck Yuck.
