We have termites! Going to have to have the exterminator in, of course, and my daughter's already posted pictures of the little guys on Facebook so that her friends can get a glimpse of the squalor here. :)

At least I have the comfort of knowing that having the exterminating company's car parked outside this Monday will doubtlessly drive the neighbors crazy as they wonder how exactly how bad things are here.

OMG When I lived in MD my first year they invested my apartment. They were dropping from the ceiling. It was so gross. Being from NY I had no idea what they were!

I was not amused. II feel your pain.

That's just awful. I hope that the damage isn't too extensive and can be easily fixed. As to the neighbors, isn't schadenfreuden wonderful?

I think we got them pretty early--the inspector found damage only in the bathrooms, which back up to each other.

We should get a recording of suitably ominous house-falling-apart noises and play it for the neighbors.

I know why I've been so tired lately: I'm sick again!

I sympathize, nona.

My Dad found out today he has lung cancer. He'll have a biopsy, hopefully next week, to find out if it's low-grade and treatable ... or not.

That's terrible new SPB. I will keep your family in my thoughts.


I have a friend coming for dinner, the house is a mess and all I want to do is crawl back into bed because I have a headache and a sore throat.

I'm hoping your father gets good news. My mother died of lung cancer eight years ago next week.
