God has saved me from my stupidty...again

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

I hate insects! I hate insects! I hate insects! I have had these stupid little flies annoying me for the past several years and I don't know where they come from. initially, they seemed to die off during the winter and I got a few months of npeace. Well, not this year. i don't know know if it's the warm waehter that keeps them alive but they are everywhere--not in vast nnumbers, but enough to fill as least 5 everyday.

Well, that was my goal this morning as another little one was making it's way after almost flying in my face. i was in the bathroom and i was rinsing out the tub and, without thinking, i threw some ater at it, in the hope of drowning it. Well, that stupid fly was right in front of the outlet and it short-circuited. the noise that followed is the noise i usually hear in a movie when someone is getting electrocuted. thank god I wasn't actually running an appliance and i wasn't actually near it. Of course, though, the lights in the bathroom and in the hallway don't work.

This teaches me that 1)God is always watching me and he sent me a very attentive guardian angel, 2) Life can end in an instant--a true moment of stupidity and not thinking, 3) I need to think before I act, 4) i need to think about the consequences of my actions, 5) I need to pay attention--if I did, i would have realized where that stupid fly was 6) I need to learn patience--I should have waited for a better opportunity to destroy my nemesis instead of acting in the heat of the moment 7) I need to stop letting the little things bother me so much that i let it ruin my day--i.e. i need to stop sweating the small stuff.

Clearly, I have a lot to ponder and work at during Lent--and thankfully, I will be around to do so.

P.S. I also need to work on my complaining--which is what I do everytime I encounter one of those stupid little things!

    we've been seeing those little flies in our house,too lately-usually it's October when they invade us. Want a trap? In a very small dish, put in a tiny bit of water,a little apple cider vinegar and a drop of dish soap. They're attracted to the smells and get stuck with the soap. We use shot glasses set around the house when fully attacked here~

    I'm glad it wasnt more serious. It's good that you learned several lessons from the incident. Hopefully reading this will make me stop and think more also.

    You probably tripped the breaker. Check your electric box. As for the flies, spray around the house. They must hibernate like lots of other flies and come out when it starts to warm up. If you get the spray out early, you just might stop your little friends in their tracks.
