Was It Something In The Air how to get rid of sugar ants in your house

It was a weird day yesterday. It was sunny, but at the same time, very, very windy all day long. So windy that I got something in each of my how to get rid of sugar ants in your house eyes during the course of the day. Pollen, dust? I’m not sure. Little branches with new maple leaves fell to the ground. A dead limb (not big or heavy, but long) fell into the hosta bed.

I went to lowes to get some fencing for the how to get rid of sugar ants in your house garden as I discovered more damage from our neighbor groundhog how to get rid of sugar ants in your house – who, I am convinced is really nigel and not joe. Nigel was more than a tad destructive last year. Henry, who is/was a saint, never went into the garden bed.

While I was at lowes, I picked up some lightbulbs. As I picked up a pack of 40 watt bulbs how to get rid of sugar ants in your house to put in my cart, a lightbulb fell out of the pack and smashed on how to get rid of sugar ants in your house the floor at my feet. I had to stand guard as someone went to get how to get rid of sugar ants in your house a broom to clean it up.

By the time I looked for a smallish galvanized garbage how to get rid of sugar ants in your house can to hold my potting soil, which I knew they had in stock, and found it buried high up on a shelf, making it impossible to retrieve without some sort of machinery, I threw in the towel and went home.

Our bed/mattress frame wasn’t working for us (under-bed storage/drawers; oak; hard on the back to lean over or crouch down how to get rid of sugar ants in your house so low to pull out), mostly because the elderly dog is now lame from arthritis how to get rid of sugar ants in your house and can’t jump up that high (yes, we share our bed with a dog; she sleeps atop blankets, not under; TMI!!!), so we put this hulking frame/contraption out for freecycle via craigslist last night and somebody how to get rid of sugar ants in your house picked it up this morning – – JUST before we got DELUGED with a lingering rain squall how to get rid of sugar ants in your house including thunder and lightning; sideways rain; very dramatic!

I was out in the thick of it and had how to get rid of sugar ants in your house to pull over; couldn’t drive with it coming down so hard. I watched water gushing down the hilly streets, overwhelming the drains. The garbage truck had just emptied all the cans on how to get rid of sugar ants in your house the street, so the gushing water just picked them up and sailed how to get rid of sugar ants in your house them down the hill like vertical boats on a big how to get rid of sugar ants in your house wave. SEVEN of them, all in a row. Was crazy; I felt like I was in a netherworld (or a washing machine, considering the WIND that came with these sheets of rain). Those big empty trash cans (some kind of ‘plastic’ not metal; city-authorized, standard cans) crashed one into the other and against cars, further damming up the rushing water going downhill. NOTHING that I could do but watch. If I’d have tried to do anything, they would have crashed against me at that speed; and that’s the kind of water if you were standing in how to get rid of sugar ants in your house it, it could knock you down. Can’t tell if they caused any damage or not but how to get rid of sugar ants in your house one might have ripped into a car’s sideview mirror.

This is socalif and we don’t usually get rain in later-may. My dog, alone in the house at home, must have gotten so frightened with the dark skies and how to get rid of sugar ants in your house loud thunder cracks that she did something she NEVER does, which was to ‘eliminate’ in two rooms of the house, so I came home to quite a mess. I felt badly for her; she’s old. I didn’t scold (never would anyway; she’s our treasure; her aim in life is to be a good girl). I had that happen once when I lived on the how to get rid of sugar ants in your house gulf coast with another dog; I was only gone for like 20 minutes down the how to get rid of sugar ants in your house street and, that quickly, she tore thru a hollow-core interior door of the home, hysterically scared with the thunder. My present dog gets this way with fireworks, as well. Today, I never would have left if I’d had a clue that rain was coming, but I’d neglected to check any weather reports and I’d walked out of my house in sunshine just a how to get rid of sugar ants in your house half hour before, so that was one WEIRD shift in weather in the how to get rid of sugar ants in your house space of an hour. I saw black clouds to the north but I thought how to get rid of sugar ants in your house it was a storm further up in the mountains.

An aside: I know what that is to be in a store how to get rid of sugar ants in your house and not be able to reach something. Last time it happened, I borrowed one of their rolling ladders left by a how to get rid of sugar ants in your house clerk but, wow, I wasn’t two steps up and another clerk came running over how to get rid of sugar ants in your house to indeed SCOLD that I was not allowed on the how to get rid of sugar ants in your house ladder in which case I looked right at him and how to get rid of sugar ants in your house said, “well, how do you expect me to reach for that item how to get rid of sugar ants in your house I want to buy when there is absolutely NO ONE how to get rid of sugar ants in your house around to help?” (he’d been nowhere in sight; they must have seen me on a camera from elsewhere how to get rid of sugar ants in your house in the building.) so many times I’ve wanted something too high on a shelf and wind how to get rid of sugar ants in your house up just walking away. Nobody cares. Somebody will come with long arms and be the next how to get rid of sugar ants in your house buyer (I guess). (your particular shopping trip you speak of today was just how to get rid of sugar ants in your house so, in total, ODD!)

Can’t wait to see what your new sofa looks like! Sounds like it’s being custom built for you; will enjoy details, details! I’ve waited far too long to do something about our how to get rid of sugar ants in your house own sofa in the house; my husband and I still go ’round & ’round about whether or not to reupholster or dump for how to get rid of sugar ants in your house brand-new and, in the meantime, it’s more uncomfortable to sit on as each day goes how to get rid of sugar ants in your house by, so I worry for our spines. It’s an ‘antique’ (from ‘the family’, 1940s-50s era, and hasn’t been rehabbed since the early ’80s; so, all it is at the moment, while we do endless home improvements/’remodeling’ [not ready for any ‘good stuff’ yet, while work is still going on], is an eyesore and bad for the back). The time is now; I can’t wait any longer to have the room ‘just right’; I want the sofa replaced or fixed sooner than later, and if I have to throw a cover over it how to get rid of sugar ants in your house til the painting and stuff is done in the room, so be it.

(the delays on whole-house improvements are because we’re diyers and the semi-retired husband still just never has enough time at home how to get rid of sugar ants in your house to do the work because of taking the still-coming [and lucrative] freelance/consulting jobs, very necessary [for us] on a fixed income which, of course, you and don completely understand! I have a friend whose husband is in his early how to get rid of sugar ants in your house 70s with no plan to quit his full-time job of decades and it’s this catch-22 of wanting the free time to travel and experience how to get rid of sugar ants in your house ‘things of life’ as non-working and still-healthy seniors, yet finding it hard to turn his back on good how to get rid of sugar ants in your house income from a job he continues to enjoy and be how to get rid of sugar ants in your house needed!)
