FREAKED OUT!!!!

Sorry I haven't been back online - I am feeling kinda embarrassed here (blush blush) ... I couldn't get into the Internet on the weekend and so I called the guy who sorts out my computer - I was hysterical because I thought my motherboard had crashed and I imagined the worst, only to discover that I have used up my ADSL cap for the month ... ooooops - serious blonde moment ... so I am back with some awful, awful news ....

I have fleas invading my house ... ewwwww ... I am sooo freaked out!!!!

My dogs are not even allowed to put their noses near the front or back doors and we have lived here with them for about 4 years so if we were gonna have an infestation of fleas, I would imagine it would have happened before now.

The only thing I can think of is that we are building and there are sand fleas that are looking for a new home now that we have disturbed theirs ... I am so itchy .. ewwwww ...

Granted, in total we have only found about 20 - 25 fleas (the lady at the Pet Shop reckons she has spoken to people whose legs are covered in fleas within 30 seconds of entering their homes, so I guess I should be grateful that they aren't ready to carry me out the door) but the thought of it is freaking me out - I went off to the Pet Shop and looked for some "muti" to kill the bast#*^! (sorry, but I am really freaked out!!). I found some flea powder and Doom and have become a Flea-Annihilator. I reckon, Plan B is to Doom Fog the whole house on Wednesday because my domestic worker is coming tomorrow and I would hate to return home to see little Phyllis lying on her side with her wig all askew (she has been wearing a wig for a number of years now - not sure why????) and her last few remaining teeth (bless her heart, she is of the opinion that if it's bugging you, pull it out!!) lying next to her - the image is way too graphic ... We love you way too much, Phyllis ...

Sooo, I will put a Fogger in each room and evacuate the house for the day, hoping that on my return the bast#!!@ are dead - if this doesn't work, it's onto Plan C, which is tent and fumigate the whole neighbourhood - I am itching as I type and I don't see a single flea on me - just the thought gives me the creeps .... ewwww ....

Wish me luck - or should I say, wish them luck - the fleas, I mean ...

Love,

Well I am definitely not going to wish the fleas luck ... they for sure don't deserve any. Its so kind of you to take poor little Phyllis into consideration ... must say you had me giggling away there. I hope you can get rid of these beasties soon.
