Day Thirteen--Calm

I SO wish this was a word that described my life at this moment, but, alas, it does not.  Usually at this time of year, I am a very happy person:  the weather has cooled, the bugs are gone, and life is slower.  This year, I have two of the three and the one I REALLY wait for is not happening.

For some reason, we have been plagued with wasps in our house for the past month.  I am close to paralyzed with fear whenever I see one of the buggers, so life hasn't been too easy for me lately.  After every day/night of 40* or below temps, I think we're done with the damn things.  After we get snow, I think we're done with the damn things.  After not seeing any for a few days, I think we're done with the damn things.  And I have been wrong every.  single.  time.  Today I had another one in the breakfast nook.  To say I am NOT CALM, is putting it mildly.

This is NOT what my life is like right now:

I hope you get snow and rid of those damn wasps ASAP!

Honestly, I have NEVER seen anything like this! I'm so afraid we have one or more nests in the south-facing wall and that is what is going on right now. It is absolute hell to live in an old house. I hope I'm not still dealing with these things in December!!!!!!
