We took a road trip. Our plan was to buy an RV and go traveling. We decided to stay in budget motels instead. We had a fabulous time over the winter and into the early summer. We were home for a couple of months when we had to call for bed bug removal in NYC. Somewhere on our trip staying at one of the budget motels we picked up the critters and brought them home with us. The experts in bed bugs said they probably came home in our luggage on our clothes. Is that creepy or what?
I was surprised to have bites after we were home and not while on the road. We actually were trying to be careful about that. We brought and washed our own linens. That is probably how they hitched a ride. We would put the dirty linens in a mesh laundry bag, stop at a laundromat, wash them and then put them on the bed at the next hotel. We had five sets so we did laundry once per week.
Now we had the critters in our own bed in our own home. The place that does bed bug removal in NYC assured us that they could eradicate them. However, even after the treatment looked to be a 100 percent success, we had a hard time sleeping in our bed. I would feel itchy just getting ready to go to sleep. We inspected each other's skin every morning looking for bites.
After none were found for a month or two, we began to relax. However, we did decide to buy a new mattress and box springs for our anniversary. Not that it will make any actual difference, but it will bring some peace of mind. We were due for a new bed anyway. At least that is what we are telling ourselves.
Just got a job with Henry County, the one in Georgia actually. I guess there are a good number of Henry counties. I know that there is one North of Winston Salem and Greensboro on the other side of the Virginia state line. I was not really looking for a new job, but I got this one out of the blue. A guy I used to work with got a big job here at the county and he hired me to fix this mess he has. I have spent the day looking at apartments in Stockbridge GA. I was looking at this one place, but then I got to thinking about the rail line right behind it and I found someone to ask about it. The apartment was about a hundred and fifty yards from a rail crossing and that is apparently where the trains blow their whistles long and hard every morning. I would not mind on the week days as much, but on Saturday and Sunday I am not going to want to have a train whistle wake me up with the sun rise.
The job pays a good bit better than the one I had, but the big thing is that it might lead some place. My buddy pointed out that my boss is 63 years old and the guy in line is just as old. Both of them have about thirty years in with the city and they are just bidiing their time until it is time to collect their pension. There are some other guys there, but they do not really look like anyone I should be scared of. It does not look like the county is wanting to have any of them take over the department. I need to show them that I have game though.Discover A Lot More
