We got termites. Even though I'd already had two other bug guys come check the house in the past - each assured me that the floor damage I kept pointing out to them was from a past water leak and was most definitely not termite damage. Because "we don't have termites here."
Guess those dudes dropped by on opposite day and I forgotten to consult my calendar cause it was totally term-tastic and we had to drop a couple G's on poisonous what-have-yous.
And before you ask - yes we are sure the third guy wasn't/isn't scamming us. I checked, and double checked, like I like to do.
They're there y'all.
Anyway - I called this particular exterminator because things were warming up again and we got these weird beetles everywhere (that turned out to be harmless) but I worried that they were powder post which ARE all over Hudson, plus last year we were swarming with carpenter ants and carpenter bees so I kinda threw my hands up.
So anyway we've been dealing with that - which totally emptied my pockets.
Also - the hell smell is back.
So there's that.
We've been working like crazy on the house but there isn't a whole helluva lot to show photo-wise.
Oh and I changed jobs.
And then I passed out and slept for about a month, waking up to sob ocaisionally.
Actually that last part was pure fantasy. I daydream about sleep.
Anyway I'm back on the blog tip and will be posting stuff daily for awhile.
cross my heart.
