We're livin' it up on the U.P. - that's Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Punkie is 6 and LOVED Kindergarten! Isaboo is 2 and she's a smiley whirl wind. We also call her Busy-Isi. This year we welcomed little Lorenzo to our family.

Life is great!

We Share Our Bathroom with Ants


Anyone else have ants?  I hate them.  As soon as I clean the bathroom and sweep up all the dead and living ants....they are back in no time.  And the bathroom seems totally dirty and icky again.

Which is worse? 

Sneaky, sly ants that you don't even know they are there until you accidentally smash them and then you can SMELL them!?!?  Ewww!  I hate odorous ants!

OR 

Carpenter ants?  They have WINGS!!!  EWWW!!!!  But, the majority of them don't even know how to use their wings.  Idiots!  They pretty much stay in one half of the bathroom....not every sneaky, sly hiding place in the house.  And they are so stupid they usually end up drowning themselves in little puddles of water. 

So, I think odorous ants are the worst.  But, ants being ants, they ARE where they AREN'T wanted!!!

And to any fly that buzzes near....

I hate ants and we've been very lucky. Most of the apts around here get ants (many on the bottom floor), but so far, we've had not a one!! P.S. Where's your before pics missy?!!

you should be used to it since our house in American Fork is built on a giant ant colony.

Well, that is where I learned all about odorous ants...but, I wasn't going to say that. There you go...now you all know why I'm an expert. ;-)
