Sunday: four hours cleaning cockroach carcasses out of the high, hidden, and dark places in our kitchen (the places I have avoided for 6 years because I feared they were full of cockroaches, and carcasses).
Monday: the day the dog's flea meds failed and the dog scratched himself raw.
Tuesday: This email from the children's preschool:
"Several children have head lice. Please check your child's head.
You may not see the lice but may find small, white eggs (nits) attached
to hair shafts on the back of the neck and behind the ears. They may
look like dandruff but are not easily removed. You may want to check
with your child's doctor for suggested treatments.
Bed linens should be washed. Items that cannot be washed should be
placed in a plastic bag for two weeks. Good luck! I hope that we can
get rid of them quickly."
