I meant to post that piece about Arlo Guthrie earlier in the day, but...well, I was kicked out of my place for four hours. Today was Visit #2 by the pest control fellow. (Yes, my issue is still ongoing, though it's headed in the right direction.) There will be three visits overall, the next one in about 20 days.
The little critters are still around -- they tend to show in the morning and generally on the bedroom walls-- but it's been clear that the numbers are dropping each day. When I spoke with Mr. Pest Control, he said that the numbers still showing up are normal and to be expected, adding that when he did his next two sprayings, all should be well and they should be gone. 'Tis my fondest hope that he's correct.
At the moment, all my drawers and shelves are emptied and put in boxes mostly in the living room, where they fight for space with my clothes in plastic bags. So, I'm largely living out of a few things I put aside. And trying to remember which marked-boxes hold items I might need. When not at my computer desk, I spend most of my time in the only open chair that's well-positioned for watching the TV. (I love it when people ask, "Did you see the game on Sunday when...?" I laugh and say, "Are you kidding? All I could do is sit in my chair and watch games all day." Happily there was a Law & Order marathon on Saturday and Monday on the Sundance Channel.
But things do seem to be moving in the right direction. So...hopefully...the end is in sight.
