Antz!

This morning we woke up to ants crawling around one corner of our kitchen. Probably coming in to look for water considering how dry it has been lately. We're going to call our bug guy about it tomorrow. For now we have been blocking their entrance with wasp spray to slow their entry. Plus, we finally got a bunch of rain, so I'm hoping they will lose interest.

Yesterday Walmart was giving out ice cream and I resisted. (I know, I am not supposed to go shopping on a Sunday, but I needed cleaning supplies for my office for today, and as Walmart is on the way home from church I couldn't resist.) I have to lose at least another three pounds to get back to what I was before the NY trip and give myself a buffer for this weekend's cookout. I LOVE ICE CREAM. We're going to make ice cream and lemonade for the forth.

I HAVE SO MUCH WORK PILED UP. Ack! Today I got my office about 80% set up. I still have to clean my windows, vacuum, and do some dusting. Monkeys is going to help me hang some of my pictures. Also, I still have about four little boxes to unpack, but they are full of decorations and older notes/work items I need to go through to see if they can be burned or destroyed. Basically it's stuff that can go on the back burner while I catch up on the stuff that came in while I was gone. Speaking of that stuff - I made a dent in it today. I think I got about a third of it done, maybe more. But I put off the hardest stuff (the education applications) in favor of the easier stuff (project management and nursing applications and grade changes). It all has to get done, and usually I favor the education applicants, so I'm not feeling guilty about putting them last this time. Looming in the distance is a major BSE letter project, but I'm not even going to think about it until I get through this. I'm more optimistic and less nautious, at least.

Excited about the 4th of July! Excited about getting some work done on the house this weekend (I hope). Excited about becoming a god mother this Sunday!!

Please pray in whatever form you choose and send positive energy and thoughts for my friend, neighbor, and coworker who has had a personal tragedy today. It certainly made me realize that worrying about my office is not how I should spend my time as there are waaaaaaay more important things to worry about.
