The hour is late, and the house is quiet. Gilmore Girls is on, which always brings a little touch of comfort to my soul; Lorelai and Rory are like old friends, and their constant banter and laughter calm me at the end of long days, as they chitter chatter in the background as I get ready for bed and wrap up the day. My little Christmas tree is lit, as are the Christmas lights still strung up around my room, each casting their lovely, warm glows on the walls. I'm fantastically cozy, and yet, there is a flaw in this seemingly perfect evening...the stink bug. Yes, the stink bug. I spotted him about 2 hours ago above my window, and then I lost track of him. But then, I found him again, up on my fan, way too high to reach! Then he flew over near my bed, and now, he's missing. And I just cannot sleep knowing that that little creep is creeping around my sleeping area. *shudder*
Our local Christian bookstore is closing, which is completely depressing. But the plus side is that everything in the store went on sale today. So a friend and I went down and strolled around, and found some lovely deals! My favorite item I got: "The Love Dare". I've wanted it for a while, I just hadn't gotten my hands on it yet! I also got a little Bible Study that goes along with it. It's meant for husband and wife though, so it'll be going on the shelf for a while ;)
Ah, Olive Garden commercial. Mmmmm yum! And it's 12:30 in the morning. I hate food commercials. You never see them at an opportune time.
How will I go to sleep with that little creep hiding out? What if he's in my pillows?? Eh... *shiver*
Aha!! Like, 2 minutes after I wrote that last sentence, as I was looking over this post, I found him!!! He is now captured in a cup in my room; I shall set him free in the morning. And now, I will get a lovely night's sleep, no longer worrying about waking up with a stink bug in my hair ❤
