Really, I'm not avoiding or forgetting

I really am working on a post (or two), but I'm slightly preoccupied with some recent uninvited guests. SO RUDE! Get a clue, people.

Actually, these guests are not people. Come to think of it, they aren't guests. And I'm not talking about the occasional indoor gecko visitor. I'm talking about...LICE. That's right - lice. Two of my little munchkins have it, and I'm positively freaking out. This is the first time I've ever had to deal with buggy heads, and, honestly, it's almost more disgusting pulling critters off of heads than pulling maggots out of a kitten.

Let me know if you need a great remedy to get rid of head lice because using the otc shampoo alone will not kill the buggers.

Laundry calls. Good thing I have a huge washing machine. Clothing and bedding await the obligatory sanitization.

Oh man!

This is horrible. It's unbearable. One summer I came home from college and I was rearranging my furniture in my bedroom and found a bald spot on my carpet in the corner.

I got down on my hands and knees for a closer look and guess what...moth larva. Yeah. Heebie Jeebie City. So I had my brother help me remove the carpet from my bedroom and my dad had to take it to the dump. No way was I going to sleep in there with critters.

Can't you just shave their heads and burn the hair...that would do it...
