This is my Season.

"I know that there is nothing better for [me] than to rejoice and to do good in [my] lifetime; moreover that every man who eats and drinks sees good in all his labor-- it is the gift of God."

Ecclesiastes 3:12-13

All four kids are taking a nap at the same time so I plan on taking a nice long hot shower. I relax knowing I am not rushed by chores that lay waiting, kids needing a drink, nor any pressing projects. It's a rare time for me.
Suddenly out of the corner of my eye I see something moving. It's one of those large "Mosquito eaters." It's hanging on the wall above the shower. "Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!" It just flew down to the edge of the shower. OK so relaxation just went out the door. Is this thing going to attack? Is it one of the undiscovered species that is poisonous? I can't take my eyes off it. I might as well get out and enjoy... "Aughhhh" with all self control I hold in my scream as It comes flying at me! The shower is NOT large enough for the both of us. As it sits on the floor of the shower I take the water and give it a good drowning. Not until it is down the drain do release the water! Finally, I can relax again. Now the hot water is gone!

Does anyone know a good Pest Control Man?

Did you ever think that you would be held hostage in your own shower ? That's how I always feel when it happens to me and it happens a lot in the South.
Thanks for the laugh !!!! LeighAnn
