Busy Bee and Other Bugs

Our house is kinda in the woods. We have lots of trees. I absolutely hate bugs. It's not so much that I'm scared of them, but I don't like how they look and they just creep me out. I guess that does mean I'm scared of them, doesn't it? Okay. I'll agree. I'm scared of them, too.

Last year after we found out we had termites, we hired an exterminator to take care of the termites and to also come out every couple of months to spray for other bugs. It is NOT working. I really think he has water in that big ol' sprayer that he goes around and sprays. I'm seeing so many bugs. And not dead ones either.

Last Sunday night before the big storms I came home and there were no less than a hundred of these black bugs in my garage. The same kind of bug covered my front porch two nights ago. I went to take the dog out, no bugs. Walked back up the steps two minutes later and there were dozens and dozens of them. They have this crunchy, hard shell so they're hard to kill. GROSS!!!!!!!!! I think I need a new exterminator. What do you think?

The one bug I don't want to exterminate is this little gal.

She's the busy bee that's been hanging around my house the last couple of weeks. I've been into everything from my job, to planning a trip to the beach in 11 days, sweeping up dead bugs, working out a couple of hours almost every day, a trip to Buford to shop with my BFF, planting a few flowers, changing out clothes, cleaning out my makeup and cutting the grass. Oh, and BTW, I didn't run over a single thing and I stayed out of the ditch. I did good.

Today is going to be a super busy one. I'm headed to the gym for two classes this morning. Then when I get back, we're getting the pool ready to show her glory. So much to do out there. Winter weather is just so rough on everything that is left out. Gotta bring out my old friend, Mickey Mouse Pressure Washer. It's been a year since I've seen him and I've missed him. Y'all may remember I get a little carried away pressure washing. As soon as that pressure hits something and it comes sparkling clean, I start wanting to wash everything in sight. I've got flowers to plant, chairs to wash, rust to clean and just so much stuff. I may not get it all done.

I'm going through the strangest thing right now. I have to spend so much time on the computer with my work. So much so that I have a hard time getting on and doing anything else. I miss it so much. I miss writing my blog. I miss reading all of your blogs. I miss my online shopping that I enjoyed so much last year. It's the craziest thing. I may have to see a therapist. I'm kidding about that, but I really don't know what to do. When I get on Facebook, I'm on my phone. I just don't get on the computer for anything other than work. It's like it depresses me or something. I don't understand it. I'm going to have to brainwash myself so that I can get back to something that I really love and miss; blogging and reading about all the projects everyone's doing, learning new things and just connecting with friends all over the country.

Till next time, my blogger friends, enjoy your Saturday!

Well, it's good to see you back! You just need to find a way to blog each day in a different area of the house. It sounds like you will be a busy bee today; me, too.
Post some pictures of your finished products. Love you and I'll expect another post tomorrow...

Happy to see you, I miss hearing about your craziness:) It sounds like you had a list a mile long and so do I! I don't like bugs and they annoy me terribly!

My blogging is done sitting in my favorite chair. I have a desktop upstairs and IF I had to go sit there to blog and comment, I wouldn't do it everyday either.

Enjoy your week dear Neicey! Love you bunches!
