you know something's wrong when...

- TJ willingly goes to bed at 9:30pm

- Getting up later than 5am is now a luxury to be enjoyed only on the weekends

(say hello to your newest early morning seminary teachers!)

Another Day

Another trap.

Another possum.

Another undisclosed location.

latest update

conclusion - take two

Not so long ago, I wrote a post titled "conclusion". In the post I talked about how we had finally solved our pest problem and possums and racoons would longer be hassling us. Well....that didn't quite turn out to be true. But this weekend we caught a few and kindly relocated them. NOW, we really have solved our pest problem and possums and racoons will no longer be hassling.


(These last two are a good illustration of why 'freezing' is a terrible defense tactic. He had to shake the cage for a good while to get it to crawl out.)

White Linen Night

I've decided the problem with Houston summers is branding. The words that usually spring to mind are hot, sticky, humid. Silly me, I was just using the wrong adjectives.

Another Heights tradition. All the shops around the Heights stay open through the evening and showcase different artists and bands.
