You know it's time....

To get the pest control people out when your son lays a chip down on the floor to "let the ant eat it". We've had these crazy little sugar ants invade the last week or so. It happens every year around this time. Don't worry we're not messy people (ask anyone, I have Mr. Anal Retentive Extraordinaire Clean Freak as a husband) we're pretty much "white glove worthy" any day of the week. But, somehow these little creatures still make it in. Pest control guy will be here at 12 noon to rid our house of these pesky little creatures. Until then, pray we don't get carried off in our sleep.

Luke informed me today that on Monday and Wednesdays he would like to go over to play with his friend Tanner. He was very explicit in his instructions, ONLY Monday and Wed. Funny huh!

Finally, I have a fun little poll AT THE VERY BOTTOM (scroll ALL the way down) that you can be a part of, if you wish.

I am feeling a bit better so thanks for those of you who've been lifting me up in prayer.

If you could please add one more thing to your prayer list. A friend (Vicki) from my old church was in a serious car accident last Wed. Her Explorer hydroplaned into a telephone pole. No airbag deployment since she was hit on the side. She was extricated from the vehicle and Careflited to trauma at a local hospital. She was near death upon arrival to the hospital. She's been clinging to life with the aid of a ventilator, swelling of the brain has occured as well as blood seepage. The Dr's. and family have made the decision to remove the ventilator and see if she can breathe on her own. If she continues breathing they will continue care, if she doesn't she will pass. It's an extremely fragile situation as her husband came upon the accident when his wife never showed up to their lunch date. The paramedics had already air-lifted her. I cannot imagine. I you could please pray for peace for their family and for Cecil, Vicki's husband as well. This could happen to any of us guys. The fragility of life is sometimes taken for granted....until you almost lose it.

Thanks,
Heather Rice

Now go take my POLL.

Heather, I will seriously pray for your friend and her family, as I know of car accident drama. Nowhere near that serious, but my heart aches for the family. Makes me want to tell everyone how much they mean to me because we never know what could happen at any given moment. So, I LOVE YOU!! and I will pray for Vicki and her famiy. P.S. I don't love the ants....we have them too :(

Heather, I will pray very hard and will call our prayer group this morning for Cecil and Vicki. I know what it is like to be in this sort of accident, I thank the Lord every day for protecting me and my husband from any major harm that day. You are right it can happen to anyone at any time. Thanks for posting!!!

Hey girl! I am so sorry to hear about your friend! I will definately be praying for them! About the ants, a few weeks ago Aimee posted a comment on her blog about little sugar ants too and she said that a vinegar/water solution gets rid of them. Worth a try. :))

I love your work wondering if you have a price list you could pass on. I do some photography on the side and would LOVE to have a necklace and for grandmother gifts and I am sure I could send others your way too..
