Sittin' On A 100 Gallons of Termite Killah

Did you know that termites have "swarmers"? I only thought they were "grains of rice" snacking on wood...but we learned about these little boogers due to our townhouse in danger of being dessert. Seems our neighbor had them in his townhouse. So, we had our little pad checked out and termites were in our front yard soil. So, in come the bug guys.

After spending about 6 hours in our townhouse (they had to drill along the walls) and pumping 100 gallons of Termadore, the strongest termite killer, into these holes...every living thing around our townhouse has been terminated. Plus, we had carpenter bees which look like bumble bees but no yellow and they can bite. They came from the woods behind our place and like to eat through wood. Sorry, pals, this buffet is closed!
Plus, it was a blessing to have a neighbor with a lawn mower. Our backyard takes all of 5 minutes to mow...but without a storage shed for a mower (or it being a priority) let's just say the weeds Maddy didn't even want to go back there anymore. Maybe she thought she'd get lost. ;) Three days later, it looked like it needed cutting, again! I think Maddy's fertilizer was working too well back there!

So, the home improvements continue as I near being up for two years...Kim and G one year. Time is a-flyin'!

More to come...

See You Around, Mike

Three weeks ago, I attended the memorial service of a dear Brother in Christ. Sunday, June 10, would've been his 56th birthday.
I miss my friend. But what's sad is that I didn't miss Mike until he was gone.

At least in the middle of the odd month, but definitely by the last week of it, Mike would always reach out to me with a request. It was usually to load a certain worship music video or some game show music. Sometimes, he needed some specific slides created or sound effects. Mike put a lot of thought into preparing the lessons.

For certain lessons, Mike asked the kids to write something that was bothering them or something that was a sin. Then he had them take hammer and nail to that card and attach it to an old rugged cross. Mike often brought in props to physically connect the Bible stories to the kids. For example, when he dressed as an innkeeper and walked in a wheelbarrow full of fresh cow manure. He was adding the smell of a barn to the lesson just to help set th…

What A Year

With a new year, looking forward and backward is important. Looking ahead is important to set goals and milestones of what to accomplish in the coming year. Reflecting on the past year is important to consider areas of growth and areas needing improvement.

Looking back on 2017, it's hard to ignore that I've been in the swamp of a layoff for half of it. December marked 6 months since the last day of work at AOL and 4 months since separation from the company.

So, what are some lessons I've learned from this journey?
