It isn't even noon and I am ready to hit the hay.. go and hide from the world for a few warm fuzzy moments in my bed. But nope.. that isn't going to fly around here, least I want the kids to trash my nicely cleaned house. And I even went to bed at a decent hour last night!! I think I was just asking for bad dreams with my last entry.. I had a doosey of one of guys trying to break in to our house and get me and me running from door to door trying to lock them before bad guys could get in.
And it has just been a hectic morning!
I feel like some one has put a curse on my house!! GURRR I have pest from every witch way, and I am not speaking of my kids! I have been on the phone and talking to people more than I care to. I don't like doing business stuff or even talking to doctor offices. Yesterday Josh had a company out here to give us an estimate to get rid of once and for all these bugs. OUCH! $588 for a year's service. Yeah, screw that, I am calling the Land Lord. The critters were here when we moved in, to be fair. I was told the house had just been sprayed when I saw a dead one in a drawer. And because I am the procrastinator that I am I never told the office that they had come back and had been treating the problem myself with spray and such. Well they have gotten so bad and it is just nasty. The pest control guy said that it is not because of being unclean or anything, they are the kind that are resistant to spray and need the bait. They can come from anywhere, the store, dropping an egg in boxes there or the paper bags and there can be 50 babies to one egg! (ewwwwwww) He suggested treating every room with the bait and the outside around the house and then come back for a follow up in two weeks and then every other month after that.
I called the lady who handles all our concerns, the in between person and told her about the problem and the estimate. She said they had some one they use to spray the houses and would call them and have them set up an appointment with me. I told her what the pest guy said and gave her his number, that it was a matter of more than just spraying. So ofcourse she has to talk to the Land Lord and I should hear back by tomorrow.
Before all those pleasantries on the phone with the office lady for the Land Lord I got a call from the nurse at school. Yeah, you guessed it.......................
lice AGAIN!!!!!!!! I don't get it... I do everything, I mean EVERYTHIG you are supposed to do treat them and get rid of them. The girls Just got their toys back from the last time. So I had to get Annie from school and have a conversation with the nurse and the office people. I had to go up there anyway because I forgot to send a check with Zane today for 5th grade camp. Then since I was there I got a packet for Lilly and all the info needed for kindergarten registration. Registration is on the 15th.
I called our pediatrician's office asking about prescription shampoo for lice and she said really it is the same as OTC stuff and I am better off doing the mayo treatment. Since I had them on the line I made an appointment for Lilly's check up and shots so she can get into school. I can NOT find any of the kids shot records for somereason. I know I put them some where to keep them up.. but dang it I put them away so well that I cant find them. This is a new office, since we had moved and I didn't want to drive 45 min. to see thier old one. I had to go threw all the hassel of calling the old office to get records sent and faxed over to the new one. The new office said I had to requested it and likely in writting because of some law. @@ The old office didn't seem too concerned and didn't ask to send me a form to fill out like I expected, only the new office's fax number. I am sure I will get a call this week saying I will have to send something to them after all.
Aww March 18th can't come soon enough! That is the weekend I am taking with some women from church to go on Ladies Retreat. I am sooooo looking forward to it!
Well I better go.. I have beds to strip, jackets to wash, heads to lather up in mayo. So much for me getting some writing done today.
