Well, after being told Friday the bug was coming, then told he wasn’t but that he was coming Saturday. But after waiting around for an hour, called the office and was told they weren’t coming. Then calling Sunday and being told he came Sunday for someone, but no one thought to inform me… then being told he would come on Monday, I naively put up helpful signs for the bug man since I wouldn’t be there to tell him where the ants were coming and going from. There are little post its all over my kitchen and master bathroom. And if you look closely, those little dots are dead ants. I originally left them there on Saturday since the bug man was supposedly coming out to deal with them that day (I found another batch crawling around my microwave and the wall towards the laundry center. No clue why!!) and now I’ve left them there as proof to the bug man that I’m not making it all up. They are just in this one corner (thankfully) but they still skeeve me out. There are some new carcasses that have appeared. I assume they wandered through the Raid I sprayed there originally. I can’t wait till this incident is finally taken care of! It shouldn’t take 5+ days and even more phone calls to get someone to act! Argh! Of course, no one came today. I called the office and was told someone would call me back, but the office closed before she did. Meaning- another phone call tomorrow to sort it out. Again. This is getting old!!

Well, here I am on Sunday evening (thus the rather look!) sporting my new glasses. I ordered them on December 31 (nothing like waiting till the last minute to use my insurance benefits!) and they came in this weekend. I’m still getting used to them, but I really think the defined frames really suit me better than the previous thing metal frames I used to have. I get to see them most every evening while on webcam, so I have a lot of opportunity to get used to the new look. So, good decision?

Well, here’s the required snow photo! I finally ventured out into the elements on Saturday after staying inside the entire day on Friday! I needed some provisions from Publix, so I had little choice but to get out there. Luckily, there was just a little bit of ice in the parking lot to navigate, however the grassy areas were still fairly covered in snow. I liked the contrast of the green, red and white in this photo. As long as I can get out and about as normal in snow, I love looking at it!

It’s our first (and probably only) snow day off of school. So, there should be some amazing photo of the snow outside here in Georgia, right?? Nope. I walked into my kitchen this morning to make some coffee after a little lie in and what did I find? That section of the counter (toaster, coffee maker, bread, etc) covered completely in ants. They were coming out of the plug socket where the toaster was plugged in. It was like a scene out of one of those “Attack” horror films. Of course I screamed, grabbed the Raid and sprayed mercilessly. ICK. I hate ants more than anything. It was all I could do to be a big girl and clean up the aftermath. The bug man was supposed to come out, but because of the snow the company wouldn’t let him. Greatttttt. Hope I can sleep tonight!
