Not mange, fleas.

Post by Jeannette on Mon Oct 25, 2010 10:03 am

FML. We took Lady on Saturday and because of where she was losing fur, he said it was fleas. Then he pulled her coat and we saw a bunch. I wanted to punch every flea in the face.

I vacuumed 7 times, vacuumed the dogs twice, sprayed the carpet and couch...and I'm a mess.

I hate the little bastards. If they're not gone by Saturday, we're bombing the house.

I will NOT deal with fleas. Little blood sucking bastards.

I'm itching all over and just pissed.

Eeeeeew. That's why I don't have pets. I can't stand stuff like that.

I would bomb anyways, although I know nothing about it, so I am just saying it. lol

It wouldn't be an issue if I wasn't in an apartment and people took CARE of their dogs.

It means some other dog has it and my dogs picked it up from an area the infected dog was in. mumble

We've had fleas once before...hookworms...cmon people.

I'm pissed. I won't even sit on my couch or walk around without shoes.

I know! It's the climate. All the little parasitic nastyness.

And people talk about fleas like..."Oh, it's just fleas."

JUST FLEAS?! I'm ready to burn my house down.

They're up there with lice. ICK.

Struggling on this house crap. lol I'm so indecisive. And random.

I'm like..."Do you want to stay in NC? We're adults, I mean...we can move to Kentucky if we wanted to." lol

I hate being held down. It's my biggest flaw.

I wish Jon was that random!

The only place he'd consider is Wisconsin. I even did a budget comparison and there's NO WAY.

Eh, I hated Madison. Too much of a college town. It's really the bills and taxes that are murder. For a 1400 sq ft home down here, I'd pay about $900 in prop taxes. Back in Milw/surrounding (I looked in the burbs, the city isn't for us), it's around $3-4000 minimum.

They tax the water and electrical so bad that my dad pays more in taxes than he does actual water usage. He showers at the gym and his bill for water is still in the upper $100's.

Jon would have a guaranteed job, but I wouldn't...there's no construction up there.

I hate fleas... I go into cleaning mode like CRAZY! Dogs bedding, dogs, vacuum...etc.!

When Jon gets out of the military do you think you'll have a strong as attachment to the area?

How about more towards the middle of the state? Black River Falls is so pretty, but I would guess not a lot of jobs.

Jon in the military doesn't impact how I feel even now. He's gone 5 days a week and the rest is on me. I love the beaches, the mountains, the people. It's so polite. No traffic, nice neighborhoods, good schools... And I make $7 MORE than I did back home and the bills down here are LOWER.

I love it but there really isn't a family foundation. Maybe that's just what happens though when you're on your own. lol

Is there any where closer to your family? Maybe a different state but closer?

There are but...not really.

I have to be in a large city for work. There's no way we're living in Chicago. It's HUGE, traffic, expensive...no no no. lol

Indianapolis is "ok" but not the bestest... I have always felt that god hated Indiana. lol

Minneapolis/St.Paul... However, if we'd move closer...why bother if we're still going to be a "vacation trip" away?

Ehhhh kinda. We're still struggling on finding a house. We found one but it needs work. The realtor is going to do some digging to see what shape the owners are in. They want 145 and I'll offer 130 IF they do the carpets.

It needs a serious clean, paint, some electrical...yada yada.

Other then that...I think my struggle is that a home is so permanent. lol

My mom and I aren't close. We didn't speak for 12 years.
