How Hot Is It Going To Be Here?

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

It's going to be freakin' HOT here this coming week! Take a look at the 7 day forecast:

I'm off work all next week. Jason will be here visiting. I don't think we'll be out and about much. emoticon

So the new TV is working great. But now we've decide we need a new couch and chair for the living room. We've needed them for a long time now. The ones we have now, hubby got at a garage sale back in like 1997. Not only are they falling apart, but I think they have bugs in them. Every year we have a battle with ants. It gets hot and they try to come inside where it's cool. This year is no different, but while I seem to have won the battle with the ants (knocking on wood here!), now I'm finding cockroaches in the living room. Like under the couch and behind it. No where else. None in the kitchen, none by the kitchen trash can, only the couch. I HATE roaches! emoticon My house is clean, I try to keep the clutter to a minimum, floors picked up, etc. I've never had a roach problem like this. Oh sure...we'd get the stray one or so..but those were brought into the house by the cats. Nothing like this. I think they maybe in the couch.

Last night I saw a HUGE one on the wall behind the couch, I sprayed the sucker and then had to chase him down as he died. I was so pissed that I tore the living apart at 10 PM last night. Moved the couch and the chair, the coffee tables, etc. I even turned them over. I then sprayed EVERYTHING....carpet, bottom of the furniture, the walls, the couch and chair cushions, just everything I could! I'm hoping that will stop them until we can get a new living room set. Did I say I HATE roaches/ants? Oh and spiders...don't like them either! I'm just NOT a bug person! emoticon

Eating was bit strange last night. Sort of a surf and turf night with some grilled fish and left over rib eyes from Sunday. And tater tots with a coconut cream pie for desert. I was atad over calories (like 150) but I'm OK with that. Weight is moving back down with the water I've been consuming.

Did a 63 min workout at lunch today. I'm on track to get 10K steps again today too. emoticon
OK...that's it for me right now. Have great rest of Tuesday and STAY COOL OUT THERE!!!! emoticon

    Oh good grief! How can you stand sitting on it thinking they might be in there. I'd be buying a new couch on my lunch hour tomorrow! Yuck! Good luck! Hugs, Calen~

    I use to have a bad roach problem in a trailer I lived in years ago I read an article about boric acid (powder form) I put it everywhere,,,,,in cabinet cracks, under my sinks , along baseboards and by my door They would walk in this and take it back to their nest. It took about 2 weeks.....but it really did get rid of them. Good Luck.
