the diary of a sick girl

I really want to go back to work tomorrow. I am done being sick.

Andy's birthday celebrations are tonight.

I was thisclose to taking the math CLEP exam I've been putting off for almost a year now.

I messed around with my backyard today:
  • I killed an ant hill. Oooh productive.
  • I tried really hard to discourage my dogs from digging right around my lit walkway. They've been screwing it up. I think pine straw is a good deterrent.
  • I found the cover for my doggy door. I am giving Jack and Padfoot a curfew, because I'm tired of waking up randomly when they decide they absolutely must go outside and bark (and I bet my neighbors are tired of it too)
  • I got rid of the ugly brown sofa from my porch. I think I'll put the wooden bench back out there, and maybe a small table.

How did you kill the anthill?

little yellow pellets that the worker ants bring to the queen. Just sprinkle a few on and the whole hill is gone.

Grits work too...
Just sprinkle a liberal quantity on the hill and it will be gone in a few days. The ants eat them and they swell in their bodies and they explode just like seagulls and Ex-Lax. I have never done the seagulls thing, but I have seen the video online. Also, a bag of grits is much cheaper than chemical ant killers and doesn't add harsh chemicals to your lawn.

Just my $0.02,

Much like pineapples, I am hardcore.
