A New Way of Seeing Things...
No, I haven't suddenly Found Jesus and/or decided that what America needs most is eight years of John "Bush Jr" McCain...

Nope, my "new way of seeing things" is... two new pairs of glasses.  :)

Yup, I'm over 40, and I apparently now require a separate pair for close-up vs distance vision.  *BLEAH*  We hates switching glasseses, we hates it... but we lives with it, I suppose... :(

I *CAN* do closeup work with the distance glasses, if I don't mind the eye strain.  The close-up glasses, on the other hand, make everything over 4 feet away into a blurry mess.


In other news, after a week of cleaning out the garage, Angela and I spent three days, from 8am til 4pm, sitting out there in the blazing heat, theoretically having a garage sale.  I say theoretically, because almost no one showed up, and only a tiny fraction of THOSE people actually bought anything.  :(

Know anyone looking for a cheap bookcase-style queen-size headboard?  Haul it away and it's yours...  :)

I was really hoping some of those CRT-type TV sets (one 28-inch, one 20-inch, two identical 12-inch) would be going away, too...

Ah well.  At least we got the garage clean.  And a FEW items actually got sold...


Tomorrow brings the Expensive Exterminator Guy.  Seems we are facing a major carpenter ant invasion.  They aren't inside the house yet -- but they are officially fortifying their positions around the house (particularly on the southeast side), and have officially declared war.  Little do they know that tomorrow, we drop The Bomb.  ("They look like ants from up here!")  ;)

Their little buggy faces will contort in agony as they experience the minty taste of their imminent demise.  (The All Natural Exterminator company informs us that the Stuff they use is partially mint-based.)

We humans shall once again assert our dominance over our little fractional-acre of suburban turf.  Begone, foul insects, arachnids, and other miscellaneous buggy life-forms!  This is our land, and you shall not have it!


The day after our particular form of racial cleansing (cleansing of all life pertaining to the Buggy Race) is complete, we'll have our cleaning lady back after far too long away -- which means we have to clean the house before she arrives.  Yeah, that's kinda how it works.  And after THAT -- finally -- we'll have Free Time again, and can maybe start to see our movies and play our Neverwinter Nights 2 again.  Yay us!
