The Good, The Bad and The Ugly: Baseball Season

The Good:
Chattanooga is an absolutely awesome town. There is so much to do and see, the people seem great and it’s beautiful. There are many areas to play outside and lots of family friendly fun. It’s also safe, which is most important!
We also love being here with Greg. It’s too hard being apart, and G loves his daddy.

We’ve been blessed with two awesome roommates. Nick and Jake love G, even calling him a little brother. G is slowly warming up to them and having a blast with his new buddies.

The Bad:
We are sleeping on an air mattress, in an unfurnished apartment. This is no dream home. Perhaps if I was being put up in I’d have my dream home. Being on the road in hotels is starting to feel more like home.
We also have to go to a laundromat to do laundry. It’s funny how you take that for granted. I’m really missing my laundry room back home. As you can imagine, with a toddler and two adults we make a fair amount of washing. I am just grateful I don’t have to wash Greg’s baseball sportwear because that gets seriously stained! The whole team’s kit goes to so that it’s professionally washed. Phew!

We’re also eating meals on a floor covered in cat hair. GROSS, and that’s not even “the ugly”.
The Ugly:
We are living with roaches. Yes, that’s right we have roaches. I’m off today to go buy every natural roach killer in the books. Although, I’m fearful that natural roach killer may not be enough and I’m going to have to call the exterminators. A friend of mine recommended a more environmentally friendly pest control service such as Kansas City Pest Control, but for now I am determined to solve our roach problem naturally.
We came home from Alabama the other night. Greg and I went straight to bed. About ten minutes later our roommates walked in and discovered a huge roach. I didn’t see it, but it was apparently big enough to wake up Greg. So how many baseball players does it take to kill a roach? … Apparently more than three, I’m not sure if I’ll ever find out. I am really missing living in a proper home right now with all this going on with the roaches and laundry. I can only dream of right now…but I know our life on the road is a necessity.

So there it is, the good, the bad and the ugly. Fortunately the good out weighs the bad and the ugly. These experiences make me appreciate our home so much more. All in all, it makes us stronger. It’s all in God’s plan, although if his plan could involve getting rid of the roaches, I’d be pretty happy.
Now wish me luck as I go try to get rid of these things!
