It's Antageddon!

Oh my God! I really have pissed off the Bug Gods!! First the mutant fly, then the uninvited-for-dinner spider, and now we've been invaded by ... ants!! An army of the damn things laying dead in my kitchen!! They're coming to take me away!

This is an aberation, an anomaly of the season or something. Who the heck gets ants in February in sub-freezing weather??

Oh well, at least they're all dead. They obviously breeched my first and second lines of defense - outdoor AND indoor treatments - but they paid the price and the residual effects did the job.

People, listen to me. In spite of my last couple of entries, I really don't live in a shack infested with creepy crawling critters. Honest, I don't. And I've got the exterminator coming on Thursday to keep it that way!

Ah, the joys of country living...

OMG Marianne! No wonder you haven't been by my blog in so long! I just opened up bloglines and see that I have 27 -- TWENTY SEVEN -- entries of YOURS I've not yet seen nor responded to. I'M SO SORRY!

I didn't post this comment on the first entry, because as luck would have it, I have a spider phobia (no exaggeration, it's true) and just didn't want to stick around even that cute little spider icon you had at the top of your horrid, horrid story!!

I'm sorry I've been gone, girlfriend. I've just been drifting around the web, aimlessly. Peas only gets about 1/4 of my time anymore, and then it's divided between two boards.

I miss you!! I surely do hope your "bugitis" has resolved itself to your satisfaction (and mine!)
