Did I tell y'all that on top of everything else this week, I'm planning my winter trip to Arizona already? There's an ATC/art website that I visit (but haven't been too active on recently, it's similar to SCS but more diverse artists and the emphasis really is on trading art). Besides the online trading, people around the country plan events to get together to trade ATCs in person, make art, whatever. They had one last year in Mesa right before I got there, but I didn't find out about it until after I got back.

Well, they're planning another one for January 2013, so I'm going to coordinate my visit to the Wigs to coincide with it. PLUS, my art friend Barb from New York is planning to come (we met through the website). This will be the first time we've met in person. I think it will be fun! I'll visit mom and dad a couple of days beforehand, do the art thing over the weekend (stay in the hotel with Barb and make/trade art with about 20 other people), then spend a couple more days with the folks afterward.

Miss I - that sounds wonderful!! I'm sure you will have a great time!! I'm also glad you are planning another trip during the winter months. This past year wasn't bad here, but I told Bill I could totally get into planning a trip to warmer temps every winter. Late January or early February would be good!

I started the day doing well - sorted and started some laundry. But as the day wore on, I got lazy. I did write out some cards that are overdue (birthday/anniversary/etc). Now I just need to address the envelopes and find the new postage stamps I just bought. That could be interesting. I think I know where they are.

Carolina - I'm so glad you are having a good time, in spite of the weather!!!

It does give me something to look forward to, and motivates me to work harder so I'll have shopping money. lol

I'm still amazed at how much shopping I did last time. But it was all stuff I needed. Really! I needed a new purse. I needed a classic black dress for my wardrobe. I needed those cardmaking and altered art supplies...

Maybe they should go to Memphis instead. I think they'd enjoy a tour of Graceland. ha!

I just sneezed all over my shoulder and upper arm.

My "bare-because-I'm-wearing-a-tank-top" shoulder and arm.

It happened so fast I didn't have time to do anything.

It was. That's why it's so fascinating! lol

Just goes to show: no amount of money can overcome a lack of good taste.

Well, and part of the problem is that the furnishings are circa 1970s...

I've never had the desire to go to Graceland. Just doesn't do it for me!

Miss I - I think you did NEED those things.

My trip has been cancelled.

Sandy got home from work tonight and her AC is not working. Since she has no clue what is wrong, won't know until tomorrow what it will take or how long it will take to get it fixed, and it's supposed to be 99 degrees there tomorrow, meaning it will be miserable in the house...

I'm disappointed, but I have to agree with her. Neither one of us would enjoy ourselves, sweating it out in a house with no AC.

I was packing when she called. Guess I can put that process in reverse now.

I went with my mom, too! When I moved to Alabama, my mom went with me (I drove the U-Haul, she drove my car). We spent the first night in Memphis and then went to Graceland and to Beale Street the next day before hitting the road again.

It's not that either one of us is/was big fans of Elvis; it was just something to do along the way. It certainly was interesting.

Mrs. Wig just informed me that she had decided she was going to "work in the basement" while I was gone. And she said she's still going to do that even if I'm here. Remember me telling you that HER projects somehow end up becoming MY projects?

Yep, this week just keeps getting better and better.

Maybe I should just pack my bag and go spend the weekend at a hotel. I'll pretend I'm from out of town and speak with an accent.

Miss I - I'd invite you here, but read this . . .

Horrible night here - we think Julie has bedbugs! We think she got them when she was with her friend last weekend. Oy. So, at 11 pm Bill and I are taking all the linens from all our beds to the laundromat. Joy. .

Oh no! That's not good. I'm so sorry.

Did you check the overnight bag she took? Throw it away!! Burn it if you can.

I have to figure out what bag she used. This is not how I wanted to spend a Wednesday evening. . . .

Bill is going to work from home tomorrow, call an exterminator to see if they have more recommendations (probably - it is money for them). I feel bad for Julie she has to get up rather early tomorrow and this is not the class she likes (earth science lab). She looked like she was ready to cry when we left. THANKFULLY, the laundromat is literally around the corner.

I know, poor thing. No one needs the added stress of something like this.

I just hope it's either something else or that you caught them early enough. Stinkeroo!

Make sure you someome who has experience with BED BUGS!

Normal spraying will not get rid of them.

Sometimes the room itself needs to be closed off and treated.

Everything in the room needs treated.



That said....Did you see them?

Could it be flea bites? Does the friend have pets?

Oh we saw them. Bill has some taped to a sheet of paper. They are much bigger than I thought they would be. Her room is closed off, all our bedding and the dogs' bedding has been thoroughly washed and dried. If we need to seal off her room, we can do that. This is not going to be pleasant . . .

I saw a program on TV and was surprised how big they were.

When I came home from Chattanooga and Gatlinburg I unpacked my suitcase on the carport.

Bill has been very aware of the problem as he travels so much. We figure it must have been when Julie was with her friend because if it had been at the beach, Marie and the two other girls in that room would have been affected.

I didn't sleep well, have a dull headache and my back hurts again. I'm not in a good mood.

Hi! Just a drive by posting. Heading out of town but didn't want to publish that on FB. Just put some note about the girls being gone.

Have a good Labor Day. I'll check in from MIL's if I can.

Granny - I think she had some bites, but I'm not sure. I did find the telltale blood drops of the bugs on her pillowcase. There was no evidence of that on any other beds/pillowcases. The inspector from the extermination place will be here shortly. We're hoping then can treat tomorrow. I'd feel so much better about that. I'm even willing to cancel our NY trip to get this taken care of.

Julie has been wanting a new mattress so this probably seals it! The exterminator said they have bed bags to heat/treat, but we'll probably just get her a new mattress. I think we'd all feel better about that.

The worst part of this is that her room is a disaster. Of all rooms in the house, it had to be hers. Of course, I didn't tell her that, but oh boy!

A new mattress sounds like a good plan!

Are you required to notify the county?

I don't know if we have to notify anyone. The exterminator was here but talked to Bill as I had to go pick up Julie. J is in a bad mood and Marie is not making it any easier. This is not going to be a good couple of days. Or more. . .

Please pray for us, send postive thoughts/vibes. We are going to need them. I have a feeling this is going to be quite the process.

Hola.

Sending positive vibes your way, Jo Jo. From what I've heard it can be quite a process to get rid of those pests.

Hurray for Kamryn NOT having mono.

Loribelle, have a fabulous time on your trip.

We have to bag everything, put a chemical strip in the bag, seal it and leave it for 7 days. This includes electronics. We are getting rid of the mattress and box spring. Her clothes just need to go in the dryer for 45 minutes on a med/high setting. The exterminator will come on Wednesday to do chemical, steam and other treatment. This will be repeated every two weeks for a total of three treatments.

It is not pleasant at our house right now. Marie is thinking only of herself and has no sympathy for all the rest of us have to do. Julie is stressing big time. My head hurts again. I am so glad I have a doctor appointment on Tuesday.

Just gave my mom a shirt that has always felt a little snug. It's cute (white t-shirt with a fun design on the front), but I've never felt comfortable wearing it because I always felt like it clinged to my back boobs. It'll be a perfect Arizona shirt for her.

Oh Jo, {{{hugs}}}

Sorry you have to go through all this, and sorrier still that M is being so difficult.
