Now that I have everyone totally convinced that our house is overrun with bugs and rats, that poop is everywhere, and that birds intentionally "decorate" people here... Let me set the record straight.
Yesterday, we were invited to the new neighbor's house for a "house warming" party. We knew the situation would be uncomfortable and risky, but the darkness was overwhelming. I couldn't help but to think back to Mrs. Burge telling me bluntly, "You are going to the darkest place on Earth."
There were so many adventures today, I am exhausted!
Adventure number one...
Yesterday, within two hours we caught two rats. Over night we caught two more. The dogs are absolutely loving this! When we catch the rats, we release them in front of the dogs to train them to be good rat killers. To them, they are big chew toys with squeakers. The unfortunate side if this adventure is that when the rats get in the house, they leave "presents."
The neighbors are moving in their new home today. So, today they are having their house warming party. In my American Christian thinking, I am wondering what housewarming gift to bring... Kitchen towels? Fruit? Maybe a nice home decoration? Well, apparently if I bring a cow, they will be happier.
