Saturday Mornings at the Cockroach Household Pictures, Images and Photos
Yes. . . we are dealing with disgusting roaches! I am blogging about this mainly as a therapy for myself. I know I am not alone with this problem. That said, I also can talk about it because I KNOW that I did not cause any of it. I keep a clean house. I don't leave food out! Sooooooo, my only guess is one of my lovely neighbors has decided to share their gross 'pets' with us. We have lived in our apartment now for about 1.5 years & it wasn't until about 2-3 weeks ago that we started seeing roaches. Luckily we are not 'infested' with them, but just seeing a few means there are plenty others we are not seeing!

I addressed my problem with the apartment office and they will be sending a pest control guy over to spray for them. The problem I see is unless they spray all the apartments in my building, they will probably just come back, right?? This whole ordeal has made me anxious and stressed out which we all know is not good & I don't need more things to be stressed over. We bought seal-able containers to put our pantry food in, so they can't get into any of it and I am hoping that will detour them some. Anyway, that is pretty much the only 'new' development in my life right now. . . .I bet everyone who reads my blog appreciates the grossed out feeling right now. I can't even put into words how much I hate creepy crawly bugs! Wish me luck on getting my new house pests to move out!

No, they won't simply come back. Roaches are like water in that they'll follow the path of least resistance. If they're in your neighbors' apartments and you spray yours, they're not going to trek on over to a place where they might die when they can get plenty of food and space elsewhere.

Best of luck.

My Testimony

It's hard to put into words how I feel toward my Heavenly Father and the Savior. I have so many reasons to be thankful for what I have gone through & endured. Because of my trials in life I have gained a strong testimony of Faith. I have always had Faith in the Lord and in Prayer. As I faced the decision to get a double lung transplant I had to rely on faith to make the choice.....By listening to the spirit, I was guided to Pittsburgh where my life was saved. I believe prayers are answered. I have always tried to follow the philosophy of this: If I do what the Lord expects of me, he will give me what I want & need. That has always worked for me. I Believe in MIRACLES..........My life on this earth is a miracle- I prayed on my knees for years to be healed from my lung disease. I knew that through a priesthood blessing (if it was God's will) I could be healed. So many times I thought he would heal me instantly...my faith was tested as I continued to get sick and no cure was in my future. I turned to prayer....I talked to my Heavenly Father, I cried to him and he heard me and he healed me by guiding me to Pittsburgh and guiding the surgeons hands. I learned humility, and thankfulness. I realized that we need others to lean on and we are supposed to strengthen each others testimonies. I learned that the hardest things we'll do are usually the greatest blessings in our life. I was able to experience a lot of things during surgery and I know I had comforting angels in my ICU room. THe Lord knows each of us by name and he will never leave our side. We need to remember to stay close to him and have Faith that he is watching over us. I know this for a fact! I know that following the gospel will bring us true happiness- the world will tell us otherwise, but I know I am truely happy & living the gospel has brought me that. Amen
