So disgusting

Alright, I protest! This coming back from vacation stuff and finding disgusting things really has to stop. One year, we got back from a 5 week vacation out west, to find that our fridge had died. What a smell that was to come home to at 3am after driving 12 hours. This year, after Becca's wedding, our freezer died, same result, although it didn't get to the point where the whole house reeked. And now, this morning, I went into the cereal cupboard, and found an infestation of mealy bugs. You know, the little black ones that live in flour and cereals? Yep. those guys. On further investigation, I discovered they were also in all the other food cupboards. All together now......eeeeeeeeuuuuwwwwwwwww. And, the reason I discovered them in the first place, is because I finished off a box of cereal, because I wanted to use the box as a pattern template to make this. Guess what I found when I cut open the box? Once more.........eeeeuuuuuwwww! I just ate cereal from that box! So, now, after working at it pretty much all day, I have empty, clean cupboards. Anything that was open, that had even the potential of having any of those nasties in it went into the garbage. We'll be well over our 4 bags of garbage allotment this week. And, I had planned on sewing, and relaxing today, before going back to work tomorrow. (sigh)


  1. Oh man that is so gross! What a terrible thing to come home too!
    I hope you had a great vacation.

  2. Yuck! Definitely not a fun way to end the vacation. :(

  3. Oh Cathy, I'm so sorry. How nasty. Bet you have nice clean cabinets now.


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
