How We Spent Our 5th Wedding Anniversary....

Ok....so a while ago a little momma bird made a nest on the window air conditioner in our bedroom. She layed her eggs and like a good momma tended to them carefully. Her little darlings hatched and she acted as the vigilant mom tending to their constant needs.....

They made quite the racket all day for weeks. Part of me wanted to have Cla remove the nest because of all the noise they made, but the mother in me said, "Noo, I know what it is like to be up at night with a baby in need. Let her be comfortable at least knowing that her home is secure...." Yeah....uhhh...if I had the chance to do it over again I would strangle that stinking birds neck!!!!!!!

So the bird and her little twittering progeny have vacated their nest and left behind THE SCOURGE!!!!!! Apparently birds, and their nests, are infested with BIRD MITES! And when the birds leave the nest the mites look for something new to suck the blood from so they started coming in from around the air conditioner. Tiny itty bitty little vermin no bigger than a speck.....too small to even squash. We discovered them Friday night all around the window sill.....

......We came home Saturday from my nephew's birthday party...Cla did a quick google search about what might be going on and what these bugs are. And he realized that we MUST QUICKLY TAKE ACTION before we become host and the next nearest warm blooded creatures *scratchscratch*........So I called every exterminator in the phone book while Cla basically bleached our bedroom and removed the nest. I packed up Ben and myself and stayed at my mom's last night and the exterminator was here first thing in the morning.....

Isn't marriage bliss??
