flea for your lives

I'm not sure if I'll be on tomorrow, so happy one-day-early birthday to roonblah!


On a totally -- *totally* unrelated note, I've been putting in untold hours and expense toward ridding my house of a sudden and unappreciated flea infestation. Where they came from I don't know, but they popped out after our recent storms, at the exact same time that clouds of mosquitos suddenly blocked out the sun in northeast Indiana. Much as I hate winter, this is one summer tradition I won't miss.

The amount of time and money I've had to put into cleaning and fogging is bothering me almost as much as the itching ankles. Almost.

Been there....

Actually a vacuum with a really powerful suck is a big help - our Dyson sucked about 20 of the little buggers out of our carpet the first time we tried it, much to my fascination/embarassment - the clear dust collector looked like a flea-circus!

Luckily for me, my daughter got a very nice vacuum as a wedding present last year, and I was able to use that to discover just how crappy my own vacuum is. Also luckily, there were not witnesses to the amount of junk I pulled out of the carpet. Actually, considering the age of the carpet, a lot of that junk probably *was* carpet.
