YIKES!! There's a mouse in the house!

Yes - we had a mouse in the house.  AAAHHHHGGGG.  I'm watching TV this evening and I heard an obnoxious squeaking noise.  I thought it was the cat doing something, but I saw it scurry across my living room floor. YUCK.  First thought, it was the largest spider known to man. ( We have a slight spider problem in the house).  You would think our mouser cat Felix, would have helped, but no, he wanted to hang outside.  It was up to me and Edwin to save the mouse and get him out.  We finally managed to lead him out the door, but then he fell through our grate.  We even moved the grate to save him, but alas, our efforts failed.  We mushed the mouse trying to save him.  Please everyone, 5 minutes of silence for the mouse.

I'm Baaack!

Yes - International Relations is finally over and I have somewhat of a life again.  I took an independent study course from BYU this summer for credit towards my teaching certification.  I had a year to complete it, but I needed only the summer.  I disappeared for awhile but I should be back, at least for now.  Thank you for your patience.

Very Long Intermission

It seems I have taken a two month intermission on my blog.  I have received a lot of flack about it.  Life just happened and then I forgot I even had a blog.  :)  Please know I will be catching up in a few days so please ignore the posting dates; they'll all be the same day.

Thank you for your patience.

The moments we remember

This moment of rememberance is how sweet our children truly are.  Robert woke up very early to which I begrudginly left bed and got him from his crib.  In the twilight hours,  he took his blanket, his cup of milk and climbed into his favorite rocking chair and sat in front of the TV. He was so sweet and in that instant, my baby seemed so grown up.  For some reason, that moment will forever be etched in my mind.

To My Friends

I'm not a fancy writer and can't even begin to think of creating a poem to express how I feel.  I've been looking at pictures, reading emails and realize I miss my friends.  Now let me back up a bit.  You have to understand I'm a social person, but I'm a hermit at heart.  It is so hard for me to get out and hang with friends. I still can't figure this one out.  Maybe its because I know goodbyes are always hard. But once I do decide to hang with my friends, I have the best time.  I have some of the greatest friends in the world and I've never been able to say it enough to them... "I love you" and "I really miss you!"

So here is to my friends who have hung in there with me and have always been by my side.   Thank you.

Now, come visit me in Germany!!!!!

AFN - It has arrived!

So what is AFN?  Armed Forces Network or the only TV we have in English.  I never thought I would be happy to see AFN again.  This is the military TV station and I must say in the past 16 years, they have made improvements.  They have more than 1 channel.  Yup, in the 80's we only had one television station unless you wanted to watch the German channels.  Another option was Sky Satellite, but then you are the only kid who knows more British singers from British MTV than you do American singers;  whose Justin Timberlake?

After a month and 1/2 of German TV and every movie Emma owns, we are up and live with AFN with about 25 channels.  Life as we know it is good.  We salute you, AFN.
