About Me

Concord, California, United States
I am a sometimes-writer, everyday mama, creative failure and experimental cook. I am interested in living a beautiful life, spending time with my family and making things that I can feel proud of. When I'm by myself I'm usually outside. Don't bother calling because chances are that I didn't bring my cell phone because I couldn't find it. If you see me walking, it's because I lost my keys and if you see me with only one child... I'm probably in big trouble.

I'm having a really hard day emotionally.

Bunny was practically dragged into school crying this morning. This is getting worse, not better. We found a dead bed bug last night. The lawyer told me that we need to get information proving that our building was aware of and poorly handled a bed bug infestation previous to ours in order for him to take the case. The exterminator didn't pick up and hasn't called me back.

...and I just feel completely overwhelmed.

I just want to run away.

But I have no where to go.



    i'm sorry anna...i wish i could help. virtual hugs to all of you. xoxoxo

  2. Okay, so the exterminator just called me back and totally put my mind at ease.

    ...just let all of this go away.

    Like, I deal with anything. I can face anything. I can do anything... BUT BEDBUGS.

    The actually problem of having bedbugs makes everything feel so flipping crappy.

  3. You know what is crazy about this bed bug thing... is I feel like I am struggling with this as much as you are. You never think this could happen to you and then it does. This happening to you has made ME neurotic. I wake up everyday to emails about bed bugs whether it be from my older sister who has become obsessed or from department stores on sales for matress covers etc and they are actually including pictures of the bugs. I think I am dreaming about them as well or maybe just checking my email on my phone in the middle of the night. I am so fearful that my kids will bring this home now that I have talked to an exterminator and they have said that they are in our area and they have already had two cases in Sussex.. one of which was in my lake community. UGH I thought head lice was something to worry about but I would be happy to remedy that than what you are going through... I think about gym lockers and hanging coats with others and now I am thinks bb not lice... have I lost my mind in an effort to be aware?!?!?!
