As if the lice wasn’t enough, it seems as though Pesach has arrived early this year with the arrival of plagues. Well, not exactly like those plagues, but plagues nonetheless.

We had the exterminator out today as we suspected some uninvited guests had taken up residence in our unattached garage.

Issue #1
The bad news: it was a rat.
The good news: it is dead.
The bad news: it’s been eaten by maggots.
The good news: the maggots are also dead.

Issue #2
The bad news: they are wasps
The good news: the solitary kind not the social kind
The bad news: they are called mud daubers
The good news: they’re harmless

Poppyseed and I are nearly free of the lice. We’ve got one remaining visit to the Hair Fairies next week and, with God’s Help, will be declared lice-free.

Speaking of the Hair Fairies…they made front page of the Chicago Tribune. BL (before lice) when I had seen the ad for this place, I was appalled. I mean, what kind of mother has to outsource nit-picking??

Well, experience is a wonderful teacher. I guess I’m that “kind of mother!” I can’t tell you if the Hair Fairies is the best solution. However, giving over the excrutiating treatments to someone less emotionally involved has been a good thing for our Frume-house.
