Cockroach and Thanksgiving

i can’t seem to focus well these 2 days. my mind is somewhat preoccupied. there are things i want to write about but i haven’t fully wrapped my mind around it yet. so hopefully this weekend will be the time.

let me just say one thing though – this week has been emotional.

now as i’m lying on my stomach typing this message, i’m being so paranoid about a cockroach i just saw when i walked in my room. i kept a good eye on it. but for a split second, i turned to plug in my computer, it was gone when i looked for it again. with my fingers crossed, i hope that it won’t come crawling on my tummy tonight.

what am i to do with it when i spot it, you may ask. well, one of my life mottos is that if there’s another living creature that’s not a human in my room and bigger than a mosquito, it’s either me or it. my weapon is my flip flop and it’s right here next to me…hungry for its victim.

ok, i lied. i’m actually dreading discovering the roach under my closet table. i feel like being forced to work on my math homework. blah.

i don’t think i’ve officially put it up here…so allow me – I HATE COCKROACHES!

what i’m grateful for:

1. fun time with my friends

2. a roof over my head despite the despicable cockroach

3. food to eat

4. visiting a child with leukemia and being reminded how fragile life is

5. work neatly done

6. prayer meeting this morning and singing hymns

    I HATE cockroaches too….they are the only things in this world that make my skin crawl and make me gag! I hope next time you see it you will be able to successfully introduce it to your flip flop 🙂

      kristie, actually i waited it out. 🙂 it finally scrurried out half scared to be seen by me. but i did. 😉 so i threw the flip flop and lamed one of its legs. no other details needed except that i succeeded. whoopie! thanks for the sympathy, dear.

    I hate cockroaches also, for the life of me I cannot think of why God created them, but He had a purpose for them. Glad you got that one with the flip flop. Hope you have a blessed weekend.
