something else

It's another little pet peeve of mine. Much more minor in comparison to the fruit flies, but it jabs at me nonetheless. It's an inherent flaw in blogger I do believe. You know the comment feature? It's really great most of the time and I'm happy when people use it. But when there is only one person who's commented, the link to check them still reads "1 comments" CommentSSSS. 1 comments?? (or "Happy Thoughts" "Love Notes" or whatever you've renamed your comments to be). I don't think it could be a terribly difficult feature to fix. And I'm pretty sure I'm not the only slightly OCD blogger out there. Actually I'm placing my bets on the fact that most bloggers fall on the OCD side of life. And maybe you're thinking, "Addie, you suck at grammar anyway so you have no right to be complaining let alone noticing." But I am, and it's my blog so there's nothing you can do about it. he he he

love my husband, hate my life

It's my husband's 26th birthday. I wanted to get him something thoughtful. I made the ultimate sacrifice and signed us up for the Indianapolis Half Marathon. I'm already crying just thinking about it. Pep talks welcome. A substitute runner would be even better. Maybe I'll be lucky enough to break a leg before then? Here's hoping.

Oh and for an update, we still have fruit flies.

new pet peeve

I hate, despise, LOATHE ENTIRELY...fruit flies.
They have infested our home. Maybe my fault...I let some bananas go bad. Certainly not the 1st time. I was going to make banana bread. I moved the bowl they were in and the little beasts swarmed my face and I wanted to throw up, almost did. Usually, once I get rid of the bad fruit, they're gone. But nope. It's been 2 days, 2 very very long days, and they show up everywhere. I pick up a rag, they swarm. I open the spice cupboard, they swarm. I turn on the faucet, they swarm. So I took measures today. I've tried 2 ways to get rid of them. One with some fruit in a bowl and plastic wrap to trap them in. Another in case they're drain flies and not fruit flies (who's ever heard of such a thing?) with ice and dishsoap down the disposal. I don't know? But the internet forums say it works. But I HATE them. They will die.
