About a month ago, Tony was laying on the floor in our room with the baby and Grace. They had pillows on the floor and Grace and Ethan had fallen asleep.I put Ethan in his crib, and put covers on Tony and Grace thinking she could just sleep there tonight so she doesn't end up in my bed. About an hour later, Tony yells and scares the living crap out of me. I jump up and turn on the light to see what was wrong. He lifts his pillow and sees a SCORPION!! It had just stung him. UGGH...My baby had been lying there, and so was Grace!! Well, Tony got up and went to look for something to kill it. When he came back, it was gone-and we couldn't find it anywhere. We looked for about an hour, and still couldn't find it. So now I have a lovely pet living in my room UUGHHH..
Since moving here we have found scorpions on a monthly basis. At first I would call Tony at work and threaten his life if he didn't come home immediately and kill it. Since then, Zach has gotten brave and done the killing for me.
We have found 4 scorpions in the past two months, so I bit the bullet and called a pest control.
$75 later and a promise we would be pest free, we have had two more...the latest being found today by Hannah.Poor Hannah- she cried and cried. It scared her so much. She was cleaning(Go Hannah!) and found it under a shoe box. I was pissed with having another one in my house and Hannah losing her motivation to finish her job! Crap!
When Tony's work called and told us we had to move, only 8 months after we built our dream home, I was devastated.I knew we weren't really being given the option of staying or not, so we did what we had to do, and sucked it up.We moved to Arizona.
Now I can deal with the ugly desert landscape, I can deal with a 12 year old house that is run down and has ugly carpet, I can deal with not having alot of friends here, and I can even deal with the disgusting heat (I will just hole up in my house for a few months) HOWEVER...I CANNOT DEAL WITH THIS SICK SCORPION PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!!
I think I've entered HELL!!
So, how do you make peace with a situation that is driving you mad? Can I be happy here eventually?
The pic is today's nasty little bugger!
