Eight of them.
Apparently the snake can't eat DEAD mice, that would make too much sense.
Off I go to find real, live mice (as opposed to dead, frozen mice - didn't know I could buy frozen ones. Can't say that I really needed to know that either.)
The pet store has hundreds of mice and the little college girl sales associate asks me what kind of mice I want to buy. Umm....seriously??? Just live ones, I guess. The thought of purchasing a living thing that will be consumed by another living thing was making me nauseous. I needed to get out of there.
I tried to make conversation with college girl and distract myself from the nauseated feeling I had. I told her I didn't feel right about purchasing these little things and she told me not to worry.
"Mice reproduce every 3 weeks and have litters of 10-20."
(OMGosh! Can you imagine birthing that often and then having to nurse them all???)
The girl casually puts them in this box that ironically says "live animals" on the side. And I go to the register to pay for something that will be dead shortly.
Thirteen dollars and 80 cents later I carry this "live animals" box to my car and put them in the farthest place away from the driver's seat and turn up the radio. I didn't want to hear them.
After delivering the mice to the school office, I get a call from the science teacher stating that I didn't need to purchase the mice after all. It wasn't Strawberry Fraps responsibility that they died - it was his own.

I seriously believe the only reason this happened is because another neighbor chipped his front tooth (while playing IN the water) just a few weeks before and I had thought to myself, "OMGosh kid, how could you have done that to yourself?!? Hello!!! It's the SHALLOW end. Duh...."
Yes, I thought something like that and then my Frap had to go and DIVE into the shallow end.
That's what I get. And a $156.00 bill.
Sure wish God couldn't read my thoughts sometimes. :)

I just spent 5 days with my Mr. Coffee's grandma and 2 aunts from Mississippi and Alabama. I had to try so hard not to imitate their fantastic Southern drawls - I didn't want them to think I was making fun of them.
Mocha Frap asked me on the way to school one day if they were from Australia? He couldn't place that drawl of theirs. I tried not to laugh in front of him. Australia!!! That kid makes me laugh (and cry....a lot....but that's another blog story).

So here's the one thing I do understand....I can pray for these families. I will ask the Lord for His comfort and love to be poured out in their lives and for His peace to surround them throughout the day and night. I am honored to carry these women and their families to the only One who can ease their pain.

I haven't been doing anything too fun or crafty lately. Just been taking care of sick kids, kids with stitches, and now my old sick self (*cough, cough*). Drat those sick kids!
I finally got out to Costco today and what did I see? A lady talking on her cell phone with her head in the freezer. Yup. I can't even get good telephone reception when I'm inside Costco, much less a freezer inside Costco. I'm waiting and waiting for her to get her frozen food items that aren't going to be frozen for anyone else if she doesn't hurry up. All I wanted was a box of Bagel Bites and she's carrying on a phone call. She finally pulls her head out of the freezer WITHOUT anything in her hand. Geez lady!

Mr. Coffee is on his way outta here....to his NEW JOB. Yessiree - after nine months of being unemployed, he's back to work.
I may be more excited about this than he is though.
You see....working curtails all of his coaching. And he LOVES coaching A LOT.
And I LOVE job security A LOT.
And I think I may love money too!

No, the gladiator isn't on my mantel, but the Nerf guns are. If he wants to sit there though, I'd probably let him . ;) And a few of these.....somehow no one knows how to put these back in a drawer after church. So go check out the party and be inspired. I'll be here hoping my fairy godmother comes by and gives me a hand.
