Angrrrrrrrrr Management

I have absolutely nothing to blog about and it's making me mad...

....almost as mad as Glen and Spencer constantly beating me at Scramble...

and equally as mad as I am at Spencer who still plays an annoying game of peek-a-boo whenever I pull out the camera....

but none of this pent up madness comes close to how peeved as I am about the wasps that built a nest in our chimney and started coming through the cracks in our fireplace doors and swarming into our house, inciting panic all around (especially in a certain 7-year-old who sequestered herself in a locked bedroom for the evening while my sister and I sealed up the cracks with duct tape and spent the rest of the night on a dangerous newspaper wielding wasp killing spree). 
And my anger at the wasps was only a fraction of what I felt at the pest control company who took one look at the nest and said they wouldn't touch them...

after which we tore up the contract in front of them and fired them on the spot.

Grrrrr....

UPDATE: 

Today is the 4-week mark of his 4th round of chemo.  

Spence's ANC is 42. 

His hemoglobin was 6.8 today, so he received 2 bags of blood this afternoon. 

Spencer (and his mother) have a bad case of cabin fever.

Your lovely mother and I hate wasps and yellow jackets almost as much as you do. Our hatred and fear of them finally inspired me to repair/replace the access door into our attic. It has been broken for the past year-severed in half ny a freak windstorm. We have yellow jackets in our eaves every summer and have been afraid that they would ultimately find their way into the house.

Hope your new pest control guys solve your infestation ASAP.

So sorry that the hassles are piling up, Lara! Maybe one headache can distract from another headache, at the very least. I will pray for the day when all of your hassles and headaches are just minor ripples instead of the mountains you have had to climb this year.

Oh my gosh, Lara. Wasps are the last thing you need. I'm sure you've done all the research on how to get rid of them and since the professionals can't deal with them, flailing around with rolled up newspapers might be your only recourse..... but just in case you haven't seen this, maybe this it work: http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Wasp-Trap GOOD LUCK!
