It’s time for another edition of What I Learned This Week. I could tell you that I learned that my second grader did not get my neat handwriting gene. Or, I could tell you I learned that neither of our boys got my OCD gene, and couldn’t care less if their rooms are in total disarray.
I have been busy laboring in the kitchen this evening.
I saw the first few ants last week in the “garage” that you see in the corner of my kitchen.
The garage houses the mixer, blender, toaster, can opener, and knives.
I killed the first few thinking there were crumbs in the garage from the toaster.
And the next day I killed one or two or ten more.
The next day, I shivered when I woke up to at least five more on the countertop.
I threw away our can opener and toaster.
I killed at least twenty more after that.
After finding even more this morning, I stopped at the Dollar General and purchased Octagon ant trap things. Then, for the 2,493rd time, I scrubbed the countertops and wiped out the cabinets. And, I spent the evening throwing out anything in the cabinets that had been opened.
And then I killed at least twenty more the next time I looked in the empty cabinet right above the “garage”.
And now, I sit.
And I suck at waiting.
And after announcing my ant problem on the Facebook, I learned that a substance called “terro” is the best thing to combat ants. I also learned that bay leaves and a chalk line works also.
