Hi happy March all!! We are approaching Spring
Thanks for the ant advice two weeks back, I might make some of that bait. I laid down some plan borax but it hasn't helped. A friend who also had an ant issue lately (must be related to the super warm winter we've had!) said that it needs to be boric acid (borax is, I want to say off the top of my head, sodium borate) and brought some over so we laid that down where they seem to be disappearing to/from.
I have been so busy, just barely taking care of things around the house. I am swamped with work, and this is a good thing, but I really look forward to having time for a good cleaning session!! So far this morning I put clean dishes away, wiped down counters, and cleaned out the silverware drawer (which was also home to collected bottle caps I've been saving for my brother- it is truly a wonder there were no bugs in there :P).
I need to do a thorough vacuuming session next. The place is mostly picked up, but I need to get behind *everything* in the living room and then the usual run thru the bedroom. The place is small but with moving the furniture around I expect it to take twenty at my fastest pace. Perhaps I should get some coffee first...
I also want to sweep the kitchen.. and that should be sufficient for this morning!
Our drawers are at the full comfortable capacity, and I like being able to go a week and a half without laundry being crucial, since it is just DD and I and I use a laundromat so it's cheaper to use one of the big machines. I have about two paper bags full already of things I have set aside but not given away yet. We were just given three paper bags full of hand-me-downs in the size she's wearing now. So basically I need to sort thru a ton of clothes and cull ruthlessly because including these new clothes we probably have about double what will fit in her drawers. I need to cull some of my stuff as well, and hopefully pick up some new stuff. In addition to the clothes for donation that are just sitting in a tote, I have some electronics that need to be recycled.
Still want to work out a new furniture arrangement.
Still need to hang curtain rods.
I just don't see how/when any of this is going to happen
Fifteen minutes at a time, I guess.
