Saturday -- Too good to be true?

Saturday, July 10, 2010

Saturday is one of my favorite days of the week. This one looked like it was going to be hectic, but things went faster than I thought. Could it be too good to be true?

We have a dog and a cat. Both of them wear flea collars and get their monthly drops, yet both of them have been infested with fleas for months, and we've been fighting them with baths, sprays, and flea combs . Just about everything we could think of. Have you ever tried flea-combing a cat? I can tell you it was no fun for us or the cat. The dog was a little easier, but she *really* hates baths.

Finally, I told my husband that I had really had it with the fleas, so we decided to try a coordinated assault on the house and the yard, and synchronized it with professional bathing and grooming for the animals. We were expecting to have to stay out of our house today, but we won't have to after all. The pest control people came and left while I was at the dentist's office for routine cleaning, and the stuff they use now is non-toxic to humans. They guarantee their work, so if we see *even one* flea again, they'll come back and do it all over again.

Our internet service provider came and went while I was out too, and now the internet is back on!

So, good dental checkup, house flea-free, internet working, pets still away getting groomed, son isn't home from Alaska yet (tomorrow night!). It's only 11:00 a.m., and that was all we had planned for today. It's awfully quiet here....

    Ok... NOW I'm tired and all I've done so far is my morning run, ate some cereal and put laundry in the wash machine. Enjoy the rest of your day!

    We had our place sprayed for no insects and they used a salt based spray and it did not smell or hurt us!! What a great improvement.
