Last week was so busy compared to our lazy summer. We have done a lot of work on the house during the past couple of months, but we did not really have a schedule. It has been a little rough. About 1 a.m. last Wednesday morning, Boogs started yelling. I got out of bed to go see what was wrong. He told me ants woke him up. I thought he had a nightmare. But when I looked in his bed, there were about 30 fireants crawling around. We had the house professionally sprayed when we moved in. It was weird that the ants were only in his bed. We did not see them anywhere else. We stripped Boogs bed, checked for ants, put on clean sheets, sprayed his room and then tried to get him to sleep in the guest room. He cried and said that he could not sleep on that mattress. So we ended up putting his mattress on top of the guest bed. He went to sleep about an hour after all of the commotion started. Luckily, he only had 3 ant bites. When it was time to wake up and get ready for school, Boogs refused. I have NEVER had to wake him up. He generally wakes up between 5:45 and 6:15 in the morning. I woke him up and he closed the door, the curtains, and pulled his sheet over his head. I had to go in about 8 times to get him out of bed. He kept running back in and huddling under the covers. Poor little guy. We made it to school just as the tardy bell was ringing. Hopefully, that will be the last we see of any ants in the house. We have not had rain in months. Yesterday's temperature was officially 112 degree Fahrenheit. Maybe the ants came in because of the extreme heat. Who knows?
