Oh my gosh.. The absolute worst thing just happened to me.. Well, okay, maybe not the worst, but pretty darn close! (itch, itch...) :-o Ok, here's what just happened.... (itch, twitch, scratch... )..... You see, last night we just brought in everything that was on our boat to get get washed, organized, etc. (itch.. ) As many of you know, Rob and I (and our dogs of course) spend many nights out on the boat. So, we keep some extra clothing and a couple of sleeping bags on the boat in a big bag. (eww...itch....) :-o So, I took this big bag that I had the sleeping bags in, unzipped it, turned it upside down and began shaking this bag to get the sleeping bags out. (itch..) I was using my king sized bed as a "table" to sort through all of the clothing and bedding that was on the boat. (itch, scratch.... ewwww) Well, as I was shaking this bag violently to get these sleeping bags out (that were really squeezed in there tight), something caught my attention out of the corner of my eye that was crawling on the floor. It was a carpenter ant. Ok.. ick.. dont like the idea of ants being in my bedroom, but with one swift step, I put my uneasiness to rest... Ahhh.... So, I continue to shake this bag... finally, one of the sleeping bags manages to break free and falls onto my bed. Hmmm....What was that? Another thing caught my eye, only this time it was on my bed. OH MY.. ! Another carpenter ant.. only this time ON MY BED! YIKES! OK.. my head starts itching... I go to get a paper towel to smoosh this thing.. and, well, here is where it gets hard to keep typing... (itch, scratch, itch.. :-O) Oh my... I couldnt believe what I am seeing.. It seems that a family of carpenter ants decided to make themselves a nice cozy home inside of my sleeping bags while they were (stowaways) on my boat! Mommy's, Daddy's, Teenagers, and yes even the Unborn! (larva) The whole shebang.. right here.. now (itch) are scurrying across my king sized comforter in total mass confusion. (itch, scratch,) Meanwhile, my dogs sat there looking at me like I was crazy as they saw me move like they never have! Where were my cats when I needed them? lol Oh my gosh.. eww.... on the bed, on my arms, my legs, my shoes, the chest at the foot of the bed, under the chest, on the railings of the bed, the floor.. and just a few minutes ago I saw one in the master bathroom on the mirror!!!!! Now I feel like they are crawling all over me!!!! EWWWW... I am so Itchy and grossed out... I need to shower, wash my bedding (in boiling water ), call the exterminator, call the carpet cleaner.. heck.. I should just move out! (itch, scratch...:-o Lord.. I think I may need some help to get past this one! :C .. I think I'm traumatized. lol (itch, scratch, squirm) Reely Freeked Out..... Marcia P.S. Anyone have an extra room to rent?
