Holy cow! I'm actually staying home today. I haven't had a day where I just stayed home in like a week. The folks are all moved into the new house. All that is left is cleaning the old house and putting stuff away in the new one. The folks got great news on Friday. They sold the old house finally. It has been up for sale off and on for over 5 years I think. About 3 months ago they listed it with a realtor. The guy is a total dope, but he did find someone to buy the house before his contract was up. I think Dad was hoping that he wouldn't find anyone in time so they wouldn't have to pay him his fee. He got $3,500 to put 2 or 3 ads in the paper and have 2 open houses. During the open houses he sat in the living room and watched tv and drank soda from our fridge. I know that not all realtors are morons but this guy is a total dipshit.

I've gotten a few more rows done on my stole. I still haven't finished a full repeat though. I think I'm gonna sit and watch a movie later and work on it. I've got quite a few projects that I really need to spend some time working on. I think that once I get the first repeat done on the stole, I'll go back to working on my sweater. Nah, I need to finish the doily first. Then I need to finish at least one of the pair of socks that I have on needles all over the place. hehe

I also need to do an intense cleaning of my kitchen. The damn ants have attacked again. I was cleaning up a bit and picked up a piece of paper to find a huge pile of ants. I've got some ant traps set up but I guess they aren't in the right spot. I need to get some red pepper or something to put at the base of the house so they don't even climb in.

Ok, time to finish up some mail and then get some knitting done.

Hey Becky! Just wanted to drop by and let you know that Home Defense spray has stopped the ants from coming in the house. You can spray it around the perimeter of your place every few days, and maybe inside too if done carefully. If you buy it, make sure to get the one that has the pump so you don't have to squeeze the damn trigger a thousand times.

We've been very lucky--we have seen ants, but really, only about two, which works for me. Apparently, they got separated from their groups...

The realtor sounds like a jerk--I would have yelled at him, but that is just least the house was sold, right?
