Things I Don’t Love: Baby Laundry and Ants

I have two this week, the second much more unloved hated than the first.

Baby Laundry
Not for the reason you might think, like having to do it so often or anything like that. No, I don’t love baby laundry for this simple reason: folding it takes 400 times longer than a basket of adult laundry. Because baby laundry is so tiny, you can fit way more pieces into a load than say mine or Aaron’s clothes. I don’t love folding laundry really at all, so when I have to hang up 18 things and fold 30 and match all the tiny tiny socks, I just don’t love it. I will survive.

Quite possibly God’s worst creation. You are disagreeing with me, thinking spiders are worse. But they are not. When you see a spider, you can get it, and you aren’t worried about 10,000 of his brothers coming right behind him. And you can get rid of a spider, but you can never fully get rid of ants. Even if you vacuum. And clean up your messes. They will just decide your kitchen is out of style and move to your bathroom. And just when you think you’ve won the war in the bathroom, they are back in the kitchen. Oh Raid, you are my friend, but I don’t know what I will do when my child starts crawling. I think the recipe Raid + Baby = Death.

    Completely agree about the ants. And I’m sure I will very shortly be able to empathize with you on the baby-laundry. :-)

    If they’re sugar ants, I was reading that Raid will make them spread. We’ve had issues with them since living here and have used ant bait. They carry the poisioned food back to their colony and kill each other. It makes me laugh. It also helps to kill any nearby anthills.

    Also, sudsy water kills them and vinegar is supposed to throw off their scent. The idea is to give them nothing to eat until they decide everything your neighbor has upstairs is yummier.

    Oh, and they LOVE Doritos and oatmeal.

    I KNOW WHAT YOU mean about the ants. We have had them for about a month now… only 2-3 a day, but we got the ant bait. I’m not sure if its working though. HATE them. there must be an infestation in Washington or something. I clean and deep clean over and over because I am so grossed out. Aren’t you scared they are crawling on you when you sleep??
