Pen and Ink...and maybe some paint

The bedbug drama...

Thanks to all of you who supported me in taking some action concerning the beg bug situation.

Sandra, your reply was extensive, and I wanted to let you know that I agree with you 100% on all of your recommendations. I never went to the clinic, I just toughed it out and used witch hazel and Benadryl ointment, which doesn't help a lot. I actually stayed in the apartment for over a week getting bitten because I expected it to get taken care of speedily, but went to my daughter's when I realized that wasn't happening. I hope I don't need "proof" of my allergies from a doctor. Like it's been said, even an infestation of these critters makes the place uninhabitable, whether a person is allergic or not.

I half expect to have the same experience you did. I will request a refund of rent and my neighbors won't and they'll be wondering why I got a break. Of course, they don't need to know if I don't mention it. But I'll probably advise them to do the same thing.

I've been enjoying my time being part of my kids' household. I think Micah has enjoyed some grown-up company and help with the housework and kids. I'll find out tomorrow how much longer I'll need to be out of the apartment.

Anyone know why Blogger changed the uploading thing for pictures? I'm not given the option of uploading them from my computer, which is the only way I can upload them! Life...why do things keep changing?

Well, I'll talk to you later.
Shalom to all and have a great week! :)


  1. Blogger has occasional glitches. Try again another day😉
    Oh I DO hope they fix the buggy problem.

  2. As Pom Pom said, I hope that bug problem gets fixed and you get your refund.

  3. I used to take photos with a camera and then put them on my laptop, and from there onto my blog posts. Now I have a phone that takes the photos, and it's so easy just to upload them straight from my phone. I'm surprised they took away the computer option!!!


Thanks for dropping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts! :)
