*stumbles over to chair and stares at the screen for a really long time* *wishes I had a cup of coffee* *goes to the kitchen to get one* *remembers that we don’t have a microwave anymore and all of the pans are either in the fridge, dishwasher or boxes* *melts*
I’m tired, guys. I really should look through all of my past posts and see how many times I’ve started posts like that. I’m guessing it would be a pretty high percentage.
So we’re getting settled into our new house here. Instead of telling you about it all in my boring little words, I decided to make a series of my little cartoons for you to enjoy. *nods again*
So we found one or two roaches crawling around our living room. *glares* Yay. We realized that we have to be really careful about leaving food out and about because we do not want an infestation of those little bugs.
In their defense, cockroaches are pretty cool. Did you know that they can….
- Live for a week without their heads
- Run up to three miles an hour
- One day old baby cockroaches (about the size of a speck of dust) can run almost as fast as adults
- Live three months without food and one without water
- Hold their breath for forty minutes
Moving off of the topic of cockroaches… After days of frustrating research (frustrating because I couldn’t find the info I was looking for) I ended up thinking that my gliders had gotten an upper respiratory infection. *weeps* We took them to the vet and it turns out that they did have a slight infection. I have antibiotics for them now, so hopefully they’ll be better within the week. 🙂
Before we took them, I was so paranoid. Since there cage is right across from my bed, I have a good view of them all night long. (In other words, I laid awake and worried about them for way too long. XD)
Me, when I found out that my gliders were going to be okay, that I hadn’t just imagined their symptoms and that the cost of the exam and the antibiotic wasn’t small fortune:
Other than that, we’re unpacking, cleaning and getting everything put in its place. It’s finally starting to feel like home here! I totally love my room. I was able to get everything out of boxes and into its proper place. My plants are basking in the beauty of a well-lit room. My closet is nice and organized (for the first time in ages…hopefully I can keep it like that!) and I’m working on procrastinating less and working more. Making checklists for myself every day and finishing them all 98% of the time. Little victories win the war, people.
It’s been an interesting few days, that’s for sure!😜😐😰😴😴😴😴😎😁😂
Do you hate bugs? Do you have cockroach problems? Are you an overly-worried pet owner?
