Check this out

I totally didn't know that I passed my 200th post and didn't do a darn thing for it. Sorry people. If you lived in my head for a day you would understand. Hey, wait, you read all my thoughts. Maybe you do understand. Phew! Thought I was going to get some flack for that.

Okay, now let's get down to business...

I am sure by this time I don't need to remind you about my family curse, right? Well, let's talk about it hitting me smack dab in the middle of my face not once but twice in less than a week.

Saturday I got a phenomenal letter from a law firm. Last year we hired an attorney to help us with our mortgage problem (story all by itself). So the gist of letter was to inform us that the FTC has shut down our lawfirm for legal malpractice. Of all of the lawyers I spoke with (and believe me there were MANY) we/I chose the retards/crooks/jerks of the century. Now all there is to do is wait...wait and HOPE and PRAY that the court rules that all retainers are to be refunded in full. That would be a nice wad of cash.

Who does this happen to?

Ya, I know- - - - - ME!

Then, on Tuesday, when we took our trip down to Manti for the pageant the unthinkable happened. Now, I am sure you are wondering why I didn't add this in yesterday's post. It's because I wanted yesterday's post to be a happy one. This story- not so happy. I even threw up a little in my mouth even thinking about it.

After the pageant we went back to my aunt's cabin. This was my first time being there and was so excited to spend the day and evening with my cousins and friends. All was going well, we were visiting and playing cards when a few of the cousins, kids and Oldest Child came up stairs SCREAMING. We aren't talking yelling or talking loud. This was an ear-piercing, something is definitely wrong, girly-kind-of scream.

So, here is what happened- while some of the girls and kids were downstairs one girl pulled the blankets down on her bunkbed to climb in. Low and behold- there, where she had been sitting- on top of the blankets- were 5 dead baby mice and a dead momma mouse.

You want proof?

Talking to my cousins- this is the first time anything like this has ever happened. Apparently a mouse was giving birth and my cousin's daughter put her stuff on the bed and sat down quickly and hard. She must have killed them then. I am just wondering how she didn't feel something under her. Since this was the first time anything like this has happened, and it is the first time we were invited to the cabin I am pretty sure I won't be getting another invite anytime soon.

Want a second look?

Okay, so you said you didn't but I gave it to you anyway.

What did we learn from all this?

Stay away from me. I am totally cursed!
