Lesson learned.

While at work yesterday I felt an ant on my foot. Thought nothing of it. Hours later felt another. Brushed it off and continued working. Around 4:00, I was rummaging through my filing cabinet and saw a few ants. Crap. I opened another drawer. The drawer in which I keep my snacks. Bingo. There were at least a hundred creating a b-line from my cheerios snack mix to the hole in the corner of the drawer. I opened the bottom drawer…another hundred. In my files, having a party on the bottom of the drawer, etc. I looked on the floor next to the cabinet - it was bad. In the words of my co-worker, "wow. I can see your floor moving". look close and you can see them!

I moved my cabinet over a little and there was a freakin' ant colony. Literally a couple hundred ants all over the place. This whole time I keep saying, "oh. My. Gosh. OH. My. GOSH. Oh. My. Gosh."

After going through all my files, spraying tons of ant killer (also created a perimeter around my cube), and wiping up hundreds of dead ants I think I got them all (fingers crossed).

No more snacks in this girl's filing cabinet.

Oh my gosh, I've had that happen in my PURSE. yep, apparently ants like chocolate covered cinnamon bears. Sick.

We are going to be living in Mesa for a few months down by the temple {a wee bit ghetto... I'm nervous.} until we can really check things out. I'm really like Tempe, Chandler, and Gilbert areas, so we'll see.
Seriously keep in touch. I'll need friends. I'm already worried, and i haven't even left yet!
