That Storm Had It Out For Me

Termites

Things have actually been alright lately

Alright so let me start off by saying that I realize it has been almost a month since my last post and I have to admit, it’s been pretty nice. My boss hasn’t been his normal psychotic self lately and sales have been pretty good which definitely helped my whole god damn tree situation. I honestly cannot think of a problem that I have ever run into as far as home services go that broke my bank so hard. I COULD HAVE WENT TO AUSTRALIA WITH THE MONEY I SPENT GETTING RID OF THAT TREE…. TWICE!!

But I got over the pain of writing that check for almost four thousand dollars after a week or so and calmed myself down, continuously reminding myself that life throws some curve balls every once in a while and I should just be thankful that the stupid thing didn’t crash into my car or even worse, my house. So after a week or so went by with no issues I started feeling pretty good about life in general and I really have been working on my anger issues. It really is amazing how much power the human mind has and the influence it can have on your overall mood and outlook on life. Another thing that I have been dabbling in which I never in a million years thought I would is meditation. Nothing too crazy, but I think it’s having a real positive impact on my general everyday life. I downloaded this app for beginners and teaches you the basics. My favorite part of it is the sleep ones they have. I haven’t had such good sleep in years. Things were looking ok… Notice the “were” in that sentence.

Oh, what’s this?

So I was out back last night just cleaning up my backyard and trying to tidy up everything when I noticed something a little odd on the side of my house. There are these little muddish color tubes going up from the ground and into my house that looks a little like this:

For anyone out there that knows what this is, you know the feeling of misery and absolute horror that immediately took over my entire body.

These are termites.

Back to square one

Are you there God? It’s me, you’re favorite science experiment that you love seeing how far you can push before he winds up in a straight jacket being hauled away to a mental institution. I don’t think I┬áreally need to explain to any of you lovely readers how bad this could be. There is not enough meditation practices in the world that could save me from this pain and anger I am feeling right now.

I have never had to deal with anything like this before in my life and have no idea where they could have came from. I’m assuming it has to do with some of the dead trees in my yard or my neighbors lawn and they just instinctively knew that I would be the best target to hit and destroy. The tree guys that came out took care of everything in my front yard but they wanted another grand to take out everything in my back yard which I just refused to spend anymore money on. I was lazy of course though and kind of kept putting off cleaning everything up and I think they must have just taken over in the past month. Well, it’s back to the phone book and time to call an exterminator. Oh I can’t wait to hear how much this one is going to cost me. If you don’t see a post from me in another month, I probably jumped off a building. Check back to see how this whole experience goes…
