A few of life's mysteries.....

1. Terro usually works great. But for some reason no matter how much Terro I put down over the last week, it just seems to encourage more ants rather than kill them. I don't understand it, but now I seem to have twice as many ants as I started with......

2. I am finally under 140lbs. Took a long time to loose the last 2lbs (my post-1/2 marathon chocolate binge probably didn't help there). So I've now lost somewhere between 12 and 15 lbs (depending on which scale you use) - why has my waistline not changed even a centimeter??? Yup, for all that hard work, not a change in my clothing size, don't get me wrong, I feel great and very happy where I am at (my ideal by the books is 130, MY ideal I think is 135-138ish), but where the hell was I keeping that extra 12 lbs......

3. My desk is yet again a bombsite. Didn't I just clean that? Think it's the signal proposal writing has started once again.....

Good website - thanks! Terro is borax based and I really don't understand it, they seem to love it! Going to cook up some of the concoctions on here and see how they do - thanks!

1. i swear by borax and honey
2. good for you!!!! awesome! how tall are you, R? people think all women should be in the 120s or lower. my ideal weight is 140, i think.
3. my spots are still clean only by force. the washing machine broke, so we actually had to clean MORE of the garage just to lay it down and repair it. (broke with diapers in it and i am not saying what clogged it. yuck.)

happy weekend. headed offline here.

How's the ant situation? Sometimes the Terro seems to really attract the ants... but they always are gone within a week or so.

The ants seem to keep on coming, though tentatively think maybe in less numbers. I have to top up the Terro everyday, as they eat it all! It might just be a loosing battle......

I'm 5'4' - one chart I just looked at said I should be between 108-132. Since reaching this height I have never been below 135 (except once when sick) and I was very fit in high school, so it's all crap anyway....

Ish on the washing machine....I feel for you there - I can't remember did you get the set or just the drier recently?

Re ants--Have you ever noticed little piles of white powder in various corners in our house? We always put baking powder at the points where the ants come in. the ants can't climb over or through the powder and seem to go elsewhere instead.
