All because two people fell in love...

We met in February 1989, started dating in May, and got married in September. And Josh came *almost* 11 months later, just in case y'all were wondering. And then no more came. We waited, and waited, and then Lauren decided to make her debut in May 1995 (5 weeks early), and then Kayley 1997, Jacob 1998, Krissy 2001, Lindsey 2004 & Joey 2006. We lived in Texas until 2005, and then we moved to Arkansas, just about 25 miles north of Texarkana, Texas. Fortunately all my children are Texans (and my handsome husband) because Texans are just cool. Wish I was a Texan... but husband had to settle with a California gal, which I think is pretty cool too.

Mouse a la mode

A couple of weeks ago, Josh and I would sometimes smell something, like maybe a dead mouse. We've smelled it before, so we know that a dead mouse looms somewhere in the kitchen. Just this past week, I open up the top oven to put a dish in, and there is a mouse tail. Serious! A mouse tail. Just laying there. I looked up and down, and all over the oven and I could not see a dead mouse. Kinda freaked me out a bit, but what could I do? Nothing! All I had was a mouse tail.

Tonight I turn on the top oven again to use the broiler. I am holding Joey, and waiting for the cheese toast to get done, and there it is! Stuck in the outer upper part of the oven, is a dried up dead mouse! It looked like it was trying to get INTO my stove top! Totally grossed me out. I would have seen it the other day when I was looking, so all I can think of is because now it was dried up to nothing, and maybe when I was using the oven today, it cause it to come down in the crack. Missing it's tail too. So, there you have it...

Mouse a la mode!
