the war rages on...

friday morning i woke up, stumbled into the bathroom, pulled back the shower curtain...

and the bathtub was full of ants!

they weren't anywhere else in the whole house - just the bathtub! (well, ok, there was one on the bathroom floor next to the bathtub, but that's it.)

why the bathtub, for goodness' sake? it's not even like we have a messy bathtub with plenty of yummy soap scum to attract them ~ i keep a pretty clean tub.


so i covered the bathtub with raid (very satisfying), and went to work, planning to spend a beautiful sunny friday afternoon inside scrubbing the bathtub. oh joy.
but i had a migraine, and joel insisted on doing it for me so i could take a shower. he is seriously the most wonderful man in whole entire world and i am confident that with him on my side, we will be victorious against the forces of evil ant-ness.

here's a picture of him (not engaged in ant-battle):

yikes! sorry to hear about the ants! Thanks to you both for taking such great care of our cats, plants, and home while we were gone. Everything was perfect--thank you!!!!!!! (the plants are HUGE!) I can't believe how much they grew while I was gone!!! :)

i think that the ants have decended on your bath tub in an unprovoked attack and you would be totaly justified in dropping a 50 ton nuclear device one them... thats just my opinion...

YES! YES! (except ... what would that do to the tub?)
