I am pretty happy today!
I worked really hard,
ran on the treadmill 5 out of seven days,
stayed in my guidelines for how much to eat,
still had small sweet snacks,
still went out to eat last night with Daniel and shared a dessert!
I am going shopping today!!!!
Just to Sam's club.
But for me that is exciting.
Update on the MITES!!
Your comments have had me rolling in laughter!!!!
Thanks! It helps!
For those that asked, yes we are sure it is not bed bugs, fleas and not scabies!
It is definitely the rare rodent mite!
While we were not told we needed to "bug bomb" the house.
The paranoid side of both Daniel and I quickly decided to do it!
So the boys went to grandmas.
Daniel and I got the house ready.
I went to the van.
Daniel turned off the pilot light on the furnace.
Started setting off bombs.
Decided we would do one in our attached garage since there were extra bombs. They come in three packs!
As he came out the back door of the garage I asked.... does the heater in the garage have a separate pilot light too?!?!?
He said, YES!
And ran back in!
Poor guy, came out coughing and doubled over in the front yard!!!!!
He was spitting and gagging and panting!!! Nearly hurled right there in the yard!
The bombs are flammable! So he felt he had no choice.
He is fine now and we had a nice dinner out without the boys!!!
Came home five hours later to a fresh smelling house.
The entry showed evidence of those Japanese beetles trying to get out and meeting their death at the glass door!
Daniel found an earwig twitching as he was dying. *smile* I hate those things!!!!!!! HATE THEM!!!!
Mites, they are too small to find or see (Daniel found one while cleaning the day before and couldn't believe how small and nearly invisible they are. They are white before they suck blood, and red or black after their minute little bellies are full. Nice.) so we can only hope this is the end of our story.
Oh how I hope this is the end. PRAY this is the end.
We prayed about mites on our dinner date! ha ha! PRAYED about them!!! LOL!
I slept soooooooo good last night!
THE END!!!!!! I hope.
Now time for a run!!! And watch BL that recorded last night during the bombing!!!
