Chugging Away

Look! Some finished objects!

Daddy's Socks (modeled on Papa Squid's feet). Yes, I am 41 years old and still call my father Daddy. Want to make something of it?
And Mom's Mitts (modeled on Squidette's hands)And, there was indeed, leftovers from Daddy's socks. Dave, want your egg back? I kept it safe in a sealed ziplock bag.

On other topics, we are still dealing with our buggy issues and I admit to being obsessed and a little depressed about it this week. We've done much work on it this week and had a few bug free days but today ended that streak resulting in our surrounding all three beds in double sided carpet tape. Ick and arrgh! Yes, I have spent far too much time online researching this issue. Yes, it has fed both my obsession and depression. Blah! Just had to let you all know that I am not always the happy, carefree Mama Squid that I pretend to be online. Sorry to burst your bubbles.

I hope you can get rid of your buggies soon and get back to feeling happy.

Oh sweetie I so feel for you. What a mess to have to deal with. OM I can tell you stories of when we had a neighbor who didn't know how to clean up after lice, her kids would infect the class, over and over and over again. Yeah sweetie I definitely feel for you, as it sounds as if you are as anal as I am about things like that. It is one reason I hesitate coming to NYC and staying in a hotel, as the hotels have made all the news stations about it.

Hugs!!!!!

Oops forgot to add. I'm glad I'm not the only one who still calls her Dad, Daddy. And yes I get picked on about it!

I think Daddy is the best name! Yikes, can you take the kids and the turtles and have some exterminators come in?

Lovely knitting!

I'm so sorry about the return of the evil ones. I hope there's an answer out there for ya'll. ♥

How frustrating! I hope this time you knock 'em out for good.

It sounds like an overwhelming job. I hope that you make a breakthrough soon!

Hey, that was a fast knit on those socks. Maybe use the leftovers to make him a ski-band/head band? Or wristlets? I'm finishing up the spinning of the roving you sent me. (No bugs in there, I'm glad to report.) If you have a large microwave, maybe start nuking things, one piece at a time?
