-Ralph Waldo Emerson
My house is pretty much crazy right now. 2 years ago we discovered that there was a big bee problem in our house. With the pounds and pounds of honeycomb and thousands upon thousands of bees up in the corner of our house by the game room. And you can't kill the bees because their wings cool the honey and if the bees aren't there the honey will drip over everywhere and make an even bigger mess. So this time 2 years ago guys in bee suits and everything came and cut holes on the outside of our house and in our game room wall. Well they're back and they have to do it again. So we had to rent a lift and hire the bee guys to come and take the bees away and cut out all the honeycomb. So we have to move everything in our gameroom and take all those records off the wall and lay down towels and plastic from the front door up the stairs and into the game room because they're gonna be taking down dripping honey and muddy shoes. It's just gross. In addition to that they had to take down this big bush thing because it was blocking how they have to get to it from the outside. While they're at it, they're cutting down this other tree in our front yard because the roots are like messing up our sidewalk and can disrupt the slab and stuff. So as I type this there's a gigantic pile of branches taking up the entire front yard and that's at least 6 feet tall. Gross.
I pretty much hate everything at my house right now. The chainsaws are making my cats go psycho and giving me a headache. And then the bee guys are coming tonight so they'll be asleep so there's gonna be strange men in bee suits going up and down my stairs until tomorrow morning. Last time they didn't leave until like 5 and they were here for 2 nights. And another thing that makes this even worse is that it's costing like thousands of dollars to get all this done and so me and mom probably won't be able to go up to Connecticut to visit my cousins this summer. That sucks a lot. I miss them and I want to see Amy and Scott's baby.
VBS is pretty much really wearing me out, but I like it. I'm kinda sad that tomorrow is our last day. There's gonna be a big performance and all the kids are gonna sing all the songs that have been stuck in our heads all week. It's gonna be cute. I need to remember to bring my camera and take pictures of all my super cute slash somewhat annoying 3rd graders.
I just hope that all this bee stuff is over with soon and doesn't come back. Last time the guy said that they've probably marked our house for some strange reason and will probably keep coming back. Great. And now our front yard looks really bare without that tree and my mom's probably gonna cry cause there's not gonna be birds in it anymore. Boo. Have a good day all.
