Wednesday Woefully Woesome Woes

A few things have been keeping me busy since last I posted here...

Which led to...

And also to...

Okay, so those pictures might be a trifle exaggerated. The ants weren't quite that big. But they made up for in numbers. And the little bastards seemed particularly resistant to the kitchen-safe ant spray we tried to use on them. In fact, I'm pretty sure they liked it. (Think of the trouble Noah could have saved us if he'd just "accidentally" stepped on those two buggers when he had the chance.) 

Ugh. The torrential rain, the leaking basement, and THEM*. 

Yes, this did happen a week ago (which is why I didn't bother to post last week), but the trauma lingers. Lingers, I tell ya!

The whole thing left me feeling...

Life is back on track now. Which is to say, I'm holed up in the Editing Cave again, pulling my hair out. If I'm bald the next time you see me, you'll know it hasn't gone well.  

Hope life is being kind to you all! :)

*If you got that reference, congratulation! You're old.**

Aw, that sucks. There's nothing sadder than a flat camel.

Good luck with the editing - I feel your pain!

Carol Kilgore said...

So you're feeling a little spread-cameled, eh?

I'm briefly out of my editing cave for a week or two of sunshine and real life.

Dianne K. Salerni said...

Sigh. I got the reference. Although I've never seen the movie, just heard about it. (*scores myself some young-points*)

Very sorry to hear about your basement woes and bug problems. :( We thought we might have to build an ark here at one point, but oddly enough the rain stopped suddenly and boom -- there was sun.

Trauma like that does linger. Sorry about your basement. It was small, little damage. But now I'm afraid to turn on any appliances.

Had a few adventures, eh? That's life keeping you on your toes. And yeah, I "got" it... but I already knew I'm old, dammit.

Good luck with the editing.

My whole March was like that. I was so glad when April came! April has had a few calamities but not as many or as bad as March.

We had the rain. We had the flood. We skipped THEM. And yes, I'm both old and an old movie buff. (James Arness, right?)

Hope things settle down for you.
