the ugly invasion

Today's topic is taboo. But it has taken over our daily (and nightly) activities that even in its taboo state, it must be mentioned.

LICE

It seems that we picked these nasty buggers up at the kids' area at the gym. We only went one time (its the new-to-us one by our new house). The kids' area was not fun at all and it was germ-y and evidently bug-y.

We have washed and cleaned hair, linens, clothes, carpets, furniture, mattresses. We have thrown out brushes, combs, clips, and even a few bed pillows. We have vacuumed everything in sight.

And we have had exceptional family bonding. Each day there is a time that we sit and comb and pick. Nate said its like we are a family of chimpanzees. I will admit - I do feel bananas.

 Last night the kids were up to midnight going under the comb. Then they did something they have NEVER done before - they slept in past 9 a.m. Woah.

I think we are getting the upper hand. And don't worry, we've sequestered ourselves into the comfort of our own home (except for Jimmy's evening baseball camp, but we figure every boy wears their own hat and they are too busy chasing and hitting balls they don't have time to share combs, right?).

You may never see us again, but then again you might!

Wish us luck in this epic battle.
