All because of an ANT? or hundred...

Im sure you find that hard to believe but ... it is true. I was sitting Thursday night at my computer where you will find me after the dunk and bunk (give Bella a bath and put her to bed) I look down at my carpeted scrap room floor and see a cheetoo. I don't remember there being a cheetoo there but .. ok IM not so observant these days.. I look back down.. CHeetoo is gone.. NOT GOOD I look over about ohhhhh 4 inches there goes cheetoo... MOVING.. Ok I took a tylenol sinus earlier but I dont think halucinating is a side effect... COULD BE WRONG... I call John JOOOOOHHHHHHHNNN Oh wait crapp baby is asleep so I whisper jooooohhhhhnnnnn very sternly so he will COME HERE NOW. He is pounding down the hall SHHHH DONT YOU WAKE HER UP! I said I know Im sorry but LOOOOK! CHEETOOO ... Moving... .......... NOT NORMAL!!!!!! He stares at me Like Joey used to stare at people on the show friends with the one eyebrow raised... and says HUH? I said just watch it. Ok so he thinks IM nuts but then he goes "HOW DID You do that?"... AHHHAAA! You see it to. He thinks I HAVE LOST MY EVERLOVING MIND by now. I kick the cheetoo and voila ANTS... not just one but like an entire construction crew of ants. I look and they have a fan club LOTS OF THEM.. seems the cheetoo movers are a popular crew in antdom.. SO my first reaction... freak out. pull stuff away find where they came from.. we discover MORE AND MORE ants. HUGE mound outside window... I guess they thought this one cheetoo is gonna be like a huge feast.. THEY SOO underestimated me. SO we look.. NOTHING to spray SO I try... WINDEX... You know In case I wanted to have that NO GLARE shine on my ants cuz all it did was make them like REALLY mad (like you wouldnt be if someone sprayed you with windex) so john pulls out the big guns... SEVEN... Ok so Im thinking IM NOT to get this on my hands or any exposed skin or any painted surface... OH BUT SPRAY HEAVILY into the carpet... MAKEs perfect SENSE TO ME!! lets KILL EM! SO we did and killed the ants...
Woke up the next morning with a fear OMG I sprayed poison IN MY HOUSE that my child lives in.... NOT GOOD. but we were desperate ,did keep the door shut and no children or animals JUST ANTS were harmed. We ran the vaccum cleaner but I still had that eww feeling.. SO what is a girl to do.. RIP UP HER CARPET I SAY! I have been wanting to do this anyway. SO hubby rolled his eyes and gave in.... IM SO GLAD he did. It looks soo much better and we found a ton of brads that I droped probly a year ago on the floor and coulnt find (told him the floor ate them) it ate everything You would drop something it was gone forever.. so now... I can see it. we will stain the concrete and texture it up then paint my walls SEI winnies walls colors I am cited. GOt the plan for my NEW SCRAPPIN TABLE all drawn out will be here by Christmas (thank you santa) and my stools will be here and my new scrap room will loook AMAZING like real professional room! I am excited NO more mismatched furniture for this chick! I got total inspiration from a chick I admire from SCRAP THAT MOMENT ( The design team i am on. I LOVE saying that! yes, I m still in the clouds IM so excited what an amazing opportunity) Heidi Jones. She posted a photo of her scrap room and I fell in love. Then my fearless leader and friend Lynette showed me a pic of her guest room so it seems I am not the first to love this color but trust me It will be amazing... It will be Nancy's Wall's By the time I am finished. WInnies walls from SEI Is my total MoST FAVORITE paper line in the entire world. (in case you didnt know) And now I will be surrouonded by it every day I CANNOT WAIT! YEEHAW!
