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.

How's the de-flea-ing going? I wonder if your daughter's cat picked them up somehow and carried them in.... My sister swears by those drops you put between the shoulder blades. (For cats - not people. *g*)

Mosquitoes - the severe lack of mosquitoes is one of the few things I really, really miss about Las Vegas. Where did those little buggers pop up from? All summer long there were no mosquitos at all (yay!) then all of a sudden they just appeared along with September. Die! They should all die die die! (Um, yeah. I hate them just a little.)

I'm with you on the dying ...

The cats both vacated the house about two weeks before the fleas showed up ... they're down at my daughter's new boyfriend's house at the moment, because Charis thought I needed a break from animals. (!) I suspect the fleas simply rode in with me, considering I've been having to mow the lawn about every four days since the unusual rains came this August.
