A new chapter in our life.

So between last week and this week. A lot has happened. Last week we found out that we had some intruders in our apartment. There names were GusGus and Jack. If you've never seen Cinderella (which is crazy if you haven't) than to make things easier, we have mice. I really don't like mice. They're quick and small and a stealthy disease. Anyway, last week, I was just about to go shopping with my grandma when out of the corner of my eye, I saw a mouse run across our laundry room. Time for sticky traps! 2 days later, I caught him. Yay! The mice are gone! (Or so I thought) then on Monday, after grocery shopping, I heard little scratches coming from our food pantry. *sigh* oh great...another one. So I open up the pantry and I see where the mouse is coming from. I put steel wool in the hole and proceed to clean the entire shelf. Tuesday morning at 2:30am, we hear our food pantry door open and close real quick as if something had slipped out. Of course I couldn't go back to sleep knowing that I've heard that sound and that usually isn't a good thing. So 4am rolls around and we hear scratching again....but it was actually a mouse knawing on the wood on the back of the cupboard. There were more holes! We both got up and checked it out and stuffed more steel wool around. We also laid sticky traps. In the morning, I did tons of research on the best mouse traps, which method of repelling mice is best, etc. I went to home depot and got some more traps. If you'd like to know what traps I got, let me know and I'll tell ya. And so I set the traps around the apartment at 2pm. We spent some time over at my in-laws, came back to the apartment for a few things and caught another mouse at about 8pm. Because of the mice, Abe and I haven't slept well, especially me. We had talked about our plans for the future for a while now and we really just want to work towards buying a house.

Long story short, Abe and I both felt that we should move in with Abe's parents so that we can use the money we would've used for rent, to save towards a house. Yesterday we started moving stuff. Although we love our landlords, and the rent was good, and we have loved living in Lake Point, we just felt it was best for us to do this. We also got a little spiritual confirmation that we're following the spirit because the bishop talked to us last night about it. He had no idea what was going on! Haha power of revelation right there! :)

Anyway, Abe and I are excited for our new chapter in life. We will miss our ward in Lake Point but its never goodbye. Plus we're only like 5-10 minutes away. I hope you're all doing well!

Well you'll do great in the Gordon Lane Ward but will be missed here. You couldn't ask for better people to live with. Bishop Durfee and Tammy are the best.
