There's a Wocket in my Pocket *UPDATED*

Do you remember that Dr. Seuss book? It was one of my favorites and it comes to mind this morning as I am dealing with my very own zattic in my attic. Or maybe it's just a squirrel, but still. I'm not a fan of things going bump in my walls - day OR night.

I'm upstairs in our bonus room trying to get some work done for both Moonpie Designs and the World Mission Team at CCC and suddenly there are lots of bumps. And then there is the pitterpatter of little feet. But they don't sound so little. And then there was scratching on the access door to what's left of the attic. This is terrible. Did I mention I'm here ALONE?

Normally these things wouldn't really bother me, but this is a new house and I haven't even been in the attic and the thought of something running out at me and getting loose in my house whilst I am here by myself is not really something I want to entertain.

However, there has already been a request that I get all of it on video when I manage to remind myself that I am much bigger and smarter than anything living in my attic, so maybe in a bit I will have a little footage for your viewing pleasure. Just know that there will probably be screaming and girliness and the fact that I am willing to let you see me acting girly should prove how much I love you. I'm cringing just thinking about it.

Of course - now I don't hear it anymore so maybe it scampered away and I can forget it was even there.

As I was pulling into my driveway 3 minutes ago I watched as at least two squirrels crawled into my roof (yes, INTO the roof - by going under a loose shingle). This is not good. They are building an army. They are going to sneak into my room at night and pelt me in the head with their stockpiles of acorns. I just know it.

Now for some pictures that I have been needing to post:

We were blessed beyond words when 9 people showed up to help us move (since Justin's back was still messed up and he was on strict orders not lift anything off of the ground). With all those people it only took 2 hours to haul everything down three flights of stairs, load it up, drive across town, and unload it in the right rooms at the new house. Right before we took this picture, Steve prayed over us and our house. One of the things he said was that he was grateful for the 8 guys and 1 lady that were blessed with the physical ability to be able to pass on that blessing and help us. We really are "blessed to be a blessing" (Read Genesis 12:1-3) and Justin and I were certainly blessed that day.

So a HUGE thank you to Zach May, Steve Merritt, Steven Miller, Ben Heskett, Jeff Rutherford, Greg Coniglio, Dick Mulloy (aka Granny Clampett...ha!), and Tommy and Nancy Moon. Y'all are truly the best!

Now you know you're tired when you fall asleep at the table! How precious is she!

Knock Knock

Who's there?

Yeah, not me apparently.

Well, I'm here, but my brain flew the coop and I'm not sure when to expect it back.

I have things to write about, lots of things actually, but when I sit down to write them I can't. The words have gone the way of the Dodo. Sorry to all 12 of you who read this blog.

Oh yes, and hello again to Mableton, GA. I still don't know who you are, but you are a very faithful reader and for that I like you - you know, as long as you aren't plotting my demise in your basement or anything equally as creepy. And if you are wondering if you are the Mableton lurker and you are from Mableton. . .YOU ARE! I know this because there is only one person from M-Town that visits. So there ya go.

Now for the main reason I worked up the energy to come upstairs and post anything...

Mama Kat is giving away a Hoover vacuum cleaner!

So you just skidaddle on over there and follow her instructions for entering the contest. Don't lie - I know you love free stuff as much as I do. And tell her I sent you. And then tell her she's pretty. She'll like that.

So...that's it. I know, this was a lame post. But hey- maybe you'll win the vacuum and then you'll be so happy you read this boring post that you won't care and you'll keep coming back.

I'm going to do better. Really, I am. (It just took 5 tries to type "really" correctly. Relaly.:P) So please don't give up on me.

Honey Bug

So I get to play with THE MOST precious girl everyday - sweet Isabella. Yesterday I told her she was my "Honey Bug" and she kept saying that all day. It was too cute so today I got it on video:

Is that not the cutest?!

*Sorry for the rough editing of the video - I'm still figuring this out. :)
