So the other day I was at Home Depot, picking up some bug killer, in the same aisle as a lot of other pest control items, and then about 6 feet from me, this HUGE RAT goes skittering across the aisle. It was dark gray and the body was probably about 8-10 inches long – a BIG rat, I’d say. I don’t know how long the tail was. It was the middle of the day, and in general it just really creeped me out. I told a guy working there and he was like, “oh that’s nothing…we have some rats that are about the size of a cat.” Riiight. Gotta love that response. I suppose it is pretty normal for there to be rodents getting into a building supply store like that, and he told me that it was probably out during the day because it had eaten some of the rat poison that they’ve set out and it was dehydrated. So I guess I feel mildly bad for the rat, but I’d prefer that it didn’t surprise me ever again. Probably it won’t surprise anyone ever again, huh? I don’t want to buy bug killer anymore.

Seriously, I can’t believe how much Joshua eats. So far for lunch he has had green beans, carrots, diced apples, peas, two turkey sticks (baby food turkey), and an apple wheel. Oh and some of my pink lemonade (he is a BIG fan…I haven’t given it to him before, though). He’s a good little eater – his favorite food these days is frozen blueberries, which I think he would like right now. I get a big kick out of his purple face and hands after he’s done with his blueberries. He does always tell us when he’s finished (that is one of the signs he is learning), but lately, I’ve been deciding for him, when he’s eaten just about as big a meal as I could eat! No wonder he poops like 4 times a day!
Now that I figured out what the email address is to post on my blog, I think I’ll do it more often! I have two drafts from awhile ago that I never finished, so I should work on those also. I’ll have to actually get on there to post pictures, though.
Joshua has a blog now, too, if you didn’t know that yet. You can click on the “boypalmer” link on my page.
