Idol was not so hot. They shouldn't have had them do a Beatles week again. It reached its peak the first week, in my opinion. I wonder who gets voted off!?
While all of this exciting television was going on, Kurt and I noticed a hole in our wall that had started out very very tiny (we thought it was just a knick or something), and was now a LOT bigger. With closer inspection, we found that we have had hundreds of little creatures living in our wall: TERMITES.
My reaction: Grossed out, and immediately felt like I had bugs crawling on me and needed to itch.
Kurt's reaction: Grab a dustbuster and try to suck 'em out. To which I said, "Kurt, why are you trying to suck them out?"
"Look--I just got 200 of them with just one blast! It'll help get some of them out."
"Kurt, they don't charge us by each termite they remove. Just let it go."
So today, Mr. Termite man came and saved the day. Tomorrow at 9 a.m. our house will be thoroughly treated. And all I'm thinking is: Cha-ching.
However, there was a bright spot today. I took my baby (well, 13 year old) sister and little (well, taller than me, almost 16 year old) brother to see Renaissance, the new shopping center. Barnes and Noble is awesome! I wrote down about 8 titles that I want to try and find at the library or eventually buy. We ran into Suzanne, which is always a treat! Punky (little sister) went off with a friend to go shopping elsewhere, so I got some rare quality time with my little brother. It was really enjoyable, and we got to talk about a lot of things. Sometimes it's weird...the baby I remember holding in the hospital is now talking to me about dating, driving, and possibly going to medical school. I love him dearly!
Oh, another bright spot---I walked 2 miles with Mom today! I hope it's making a difference.
I'm going to finish up some laundry and other domestic duties. Love to my friends!
