The ants go marching…

…to their death, hopefully.
Yes, we have an ant problem.
No, we are not dirty, stinky people. This is absolutely no indication as to the state of our house. I keep a clean house, thank you. I get a kick out of vaccuuming, I really do.
Yes, they were an issue with prior tenants and therefore just came with the house. They are my nemesis. I have waged a war against the ants. Right now we have your standard traps set (I decided against a visual for you all- no one wants to see that) and I just have to leave the house.
Why am I telling you all this? Mainly because I’ve spent my morning combating said enemy and also posting items from our office to Craigslist, therefore ruminating on anything worthwhile was impossible. I was killing ants and trying to make a small desk and twin bed sound like the next necessary additions to a household. Remember yesterday’s post? After rearranging for my Craigslist photo session, it now looks like this:
I don’t go in there.
Oh- and while I was posting that picture, I saw the reflection of flames on the vaccuum in front of me (my weapon of choice against the ant army) and went into the kitchen to discover a small fire on the stove. After yelling, “Fire, honey! FIRE. HONEY.” to my husband, he saved the house.
His egg-making endeavor gone awry.
This whole “working from home” thing is going real swell.
P.S. If anyone is looking for a cute little desk or comfortable twin bed in good condition, hit us up. That is, if we don’t set it on fire first.
