As much as I hate cliches, I have to say it…
Recently, I wrote a blog about how we were considering homeschooling after my daughter came home from school with a black eye.
Well just when I thought things couldn’t get any worse, I let my daughters go to a friend’s house for a sleepover last weekend, and they came home with bed bugs!
We didn’t realize it until a few days afterwards when our entire house had been infested with the darn things. Ugh. What makes it even worse is that very few pest control companies in the area will take care of bed bugs. They all hate doing it because it’s such a pain. (And terribly expensive.) A friend of mine on Facebook referred me to a local company, so I called them, and they were willing to do it. The price was pretty steep, but that would have been the case with any company I called.
Bed bugs are the worst type of pest to infest your house, because they’re so hard to get rid of. And most pest control companies will want you to take some preliminary measures before they even come out to treat. If you have a really bad infestation, you may even have to replace your mattress and box spring.
Not to mention, the horrible rash they cause. My legs have been itching so bad for the last week that I’ve had trouble focusing on work and getting anything done. But I said I was committed to posting more, so here I am… telling you all about my bed bug problem.
Ya’ll please pray for us. Bad things typically come in threes and I’m pretty nervous to see what will happen next…
Oh, and happy cinco de mayo!
