The house we moved into was abandoned for several weeks before we moved in. Enough time for critters and dust to live here rent free. The house has a lot of potential but it needs some serious TLC. It is a big house with lots of tile and windows that constantly requires mopping.
The first night that we stayed here, Ron found a scorpion in our kitchen. Then right before we were going to sleep I noticed another weird looking critter by my bed. I screamed and Ron killed it, the usual pattern lol. I cried myself to sleep that night. Every noise scared me. It was a very rough night. I kept thinking about what we left behind to come here. I was so upset that I could not even pray. Oh but the scriptures say that weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning… and it did! A lady from the church came to help me clean. Ron sprayed for bugs and slowly some left. It’s Mexico so they tell me bugs come with the house. We also inherited 2 cats. I’ve never been a cat lover but since I was given the choice of rats or cats, I have decided to keep the cats 🙂
Praise Report: We got a call yesterday that a nicer house is available so it looks like we are going to be moving in 2 weeks.
NOTE from Ron: About 1,000 – 2,000 deaths occur each year in Mexico due to scorpion stings. I have killed five in our house since we arrived.
