1. We are having crawly critter issues...
This is misleading. The spider is as big as my thumb!
G came running downstairs the other night...
MOM!!!!! THERE IS A HUGE SPIDER
I, being the adventurous, unafraid mom that I am, captured it live
and released it
to the wild into our front yard.
And then there's this...
we wake up more often than not (or so it seems) to this...
Do you see the ants? I found this photo on my phone. I didn't take it.
I was too busy KILLING THEM.
It was like D-Day all over again.
The ants were like the Allies...they kept sending troops into battle. Relentless, onward they came.
In unheard of numbers. More and more and more strode into the slaughter.
The vacuum cleaner and I heartlessly and methodically decimated their ranks.
Unapologetically committing insecticide...
Yet knowing that, though we might win this battle,
those little bastards would probably win the war.
2. We've had familial sickness...
No pictures of this. Over the weekend, both my husband and I got some weird zombie-like sickness. No body aches or fever or throwing up, just these headaches and disorientation and inability to function like normal people. On one occasion, my husband was lurching down the hall and I was stumbling around in the kitchen making lunch for the kids and I started laughing so hard. I was seriously like we were two zombies trying to raise a houseful of human children. Guess you had to be there :P
3. I finally got my hip x-rayed.
No results yet. I just had it done yesterday. I'd been dragging my feet on that for about 9 years. Ummmm...yeah.... First it was because a week after the doc wrote the requisition, I found out I was pregnant. Hip x-ray while pregnant, no es bueno. When I was ready to get the x-ray after that baby was born...BOOM... pregnant again. That happened a couple of times. So then it just seemed like every time I was going to get it the wait was going to be HOURS. Yesterday I had a couple of free hours, so I decided to just suck it up and go. I was in and out in 20 minutes. Whoa. Did I feel kind of stupid. Yeah. You'll be the firsts to know what it says as soon as I know.
That's all I've got for now!
I hope life is treating all of you well and thanks for hanging tough with me while I spend a little less time in BlogWorld.
