One Cockroach

Nearly every single morning, I am the first lady to use the restroom on the second floor of the library. This leaves me the unenviable task of turning on the light before I go inside. I flip the switch and prepare myself for what might dart out in front of me: a lone large cockroach. Every morning, one large cockroach is fleeing from the light (and my shoe!)

Why just one? And why do I need to squish it? The Almighty must be giving me some sort of spiritual lesson from the cockroach. Maybe it represents the devil’s activities in my life. I am grateful there are not a swarm of la cucurachas to dance upon or run away from! Each day I have the responsibility to symbolically crunch sin.

You are all creeped out now, I am sure. You should see all the crickets running around!! 😉

    Or it could just mean that the powers-that-be need to call Orkin. 😉

    “Or it could just mean that the powers-that-be need to call Orkin.”

    Right after they fix the a/c!

    Seriously, did they fix it?

    The A/C, as far as I can tell, has been fixed. A huge crane lifted it up into place on Monday morning!

    No such luck with bug-busting. You should have seen and smelled the buckets of dead crickets the guys shoveled out of the elevator shaft! It still stinks in there. I take the steps.

    I was sitting on my bed reading the other night and I saw something crawl across the floor, so I leaned down to look at it. It was just a cricket, so I said “hello” and then left it alone. But I thought to myself, “Why are people freaked out by spiders and cockroaches, but crickets are no big deal?” So, hmmm… just thought I’d share. 😉

    Love & peace,

"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you are licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what." No idea where that last quote came from, but I like it!
