updates (which means randomness)

While normally "no news is good news" is how the mantra goes, in the Grummons' household it isn't necessarily the case. Things are okay, but it's just been a really stressful week. Sam goes on duty on Dec. 1st, but we don't know what that means exactly. Is that pre-deployment training? Is that "wheels up" on the way to Kosovo (or Bosnia, wherever it is "they" are sending him)? Who knows. All we know is that yesterday was the sad day where Sam walked all over campus withdrawing himself from classes, and dealing with idiots. But...I could write a whole post on the idiot workers at Biola so we'll save that for another day.

Other than the immanent deployment lurking over our heads, things have been okay. The empty apartment next door was infested with fleas and our landlord bombed the crap (can I say crap on my blog?) out of them, so they have decided to try to use our place as a refugee camp. Needless to say, we are not friendly to the little guys so beware if you are our neighbors. The fleas will soon be making their ways to you. Along with the ants we poisoned, I noticed that they were making their pilgrimage next door last night!

I've been super busy playing catch up at work while Sam gets to experience the joys of being a stay at home dad. He told me he was bored today (and had the laundry done and the bathroom cleaned to prove it!). I told him welcome to my world.

Camp is Sunday through Saturday. I am super excited and a little apprehensive. Let's just say that 6 days with 26 Jr. High students will be both amazing and difficult. Pray. Especially for the students. I tend to have less of a filter when I'm pregnant and have been known to make small children cry...eep!

I'll update again either right before I go or when we get back (which will be around the 19th because we're going to San Diego straight after camp). Cheers!

I saw those "little guys" last night, too... icky ick ick!! I also spread poison around the perimeter so hopefully they'll just die already!

Hey, we still want to go see Dark Knight! Wanna go all together?

HAVE FUN at camp!! :)
I'll talk to you later.

I'll be praying for you too, with all the youth group kiddos. :)

Sorry to hear about Sam's deployment. Will this war ever end? I'm happy to see the Iraqi leader wanting us on a timeline to get Obama wants.

Ahhh!!! What is with the infestation of bugs lately?? I've had ants AND THREE ROACHES!!

And just like you, I don't mess around. Exterminator was called immediately.
