Bedbugs and Lice

I just scratched my head. I looked under my fingernail and something squirmed. Yay. I had plans for my day, but now it looks like lice removal time. Praise the Lord! There must be something good to come from this. I prayed for my pride to be abased. God has some interesting ways of answering.

Katie and Mrs. Hunter have had trouble with bed bugs. Life here is interesting.

Guess you could pray for my lice too (and that Katie doesn't have it...we haven't thoroughly checked her yet).

Thanks!

Oh, no! I was just studying about lice in my Health class in school....I know that has to be quite unpleasant. Hope you find a way to get rid of them soon and Katie doesn't pick them up too. Thank you for your email the other day by the way. I enjoyed getting that.

I feel for you Ellen!!! Well, not literally because then I'd be scratching my head...but you know what I mean. You'll be double in my prayers!!! Good luck getting rid of it. Love you...btw, it's FREEZING here...soak up some sun for me, would you? :)

We are soaking up the sun! We have pretty good tans going...
We got probably 95% of the lice out of her hair today, and that's about all we did- picked eggs and lice out. (Diane and I) I also boiled probably 10 gallons of water on the stove all day, and put it into this utility sink so that I could boil all of our sheets, pillows, clothes, etc. from the last few days. We went on a cleaning craze.
By the way...we got your letter today! I love and miss you! Thanks.

awww, sweet!!! I need to keep sending letters so that you get more...I only have 3 and 1/2 more months to do that... :)

I agree with the "need to keep sending letters so that you get more" part. :)

Do you all have a mailing address then? I'd love to have it so I can send you some too.
