Things I WON'T Miss When We Move to Town: Insects.

Seriously.  I am so very tired of the bugs.  The spiders.  The Asian beetles.  The flies.  Go away already.
Our house is apparently a creepy crawly paradise.  If my spider story isn't enough proof... here are some pictures I have taken around the house the last month.

In the shower.

Asian beetles all over.

 In the sink.

On the clean dishes.

I'm tired of coming home from a weekend away to spider webs stretched across our bed.  Or waking up in the morning with new bug bites.  And having to pick up random dead beetles off the carpet as I walk through the house.. because we all know Mason will eat them if he spots 'em.

I like them better outside.  Where they belong.  Even if they do eat our bird feed.

Okay, maybe not here.  Yes, that is a giant beetle on my son's head.

And, I wouldn't mind if I didn't have to shake the mail as I took it out of the box to make sure nothing will crawl up my arm.  Whenever I open the door to our mailbox, I never know how many spiders I'm going to see in there.  Today there were four.  Last Friday there were six.

I realize that there are bugs in town, too.  But not as many as there are in an old house out on the farm.  We kill an average of 2 spiders a day, per person.  Today I killed one the crawled up beside me on the couch.  Later I killed one that appeared on the arm of the other couch.  And then later I trapped one under a coffee cup on the counter.. I should probably go finish the job.

I can't wait to move!

As for the house we put an offer on, after I updated you all about it last time, we got counter offered the next day.  We ended up putting in our best and final offer and haven't heard a peep since.
