I still send the kids out, but only for short periods of time and tons of mosquito spray. Then, as they go out choking and coughing, I send them out with a "Have fun!" and they are back about 5 minutes later with new mosquito bites on their faces.
Poor Anna has 17 on her arm, and Henry has 6 on his face alone, along with about five more along his neckline.
All the kids are full of itchy lumps. Yes, I feel bad for them. You know you've got a mosquito problem when you have to spray your kids down before bed because of all the mosquitoes in the house.
Good news is that Dennis went to Fleet Farm and got a bunch of mosquito spray killer for the lawn. That should at least cut the mosquitoes down by half of what they were. In the meantime, it's supposed to rain later today and tomorrow..
On house improvement news, I can't say there is much but I did get our room painted.
We got the hole in the wall fixed too. That brings us down to 8 holes yet to fix.
I would eventually like to get a new ceiling fan or light in the room. It's unbalanced, so it's unusable for now. The people that lived here before fixed it by stuffing books under it.
|I'm pretty sure those are the directions under there.|
Later today, someone from Home Depot is coming to measure the living room/hallway/bedrooms to put in our new floor. Ahh, I cannot wait for our new floor! Having him come to measure just makes it that much harder to wait though. In fact, with having to stay inside with the mosquitoes and rain, it makes all these previous hardships harder to endure.
I guess I will just have to focus on painting!
