If This Isn't Ridiculous, I Don't Know What Is

It is now 11:45 p.m.

I have to get up in the morning. I took my requisite Ambien like a good girl over an hour ago. I had a long, hot shower to relax after a long, hard day of cleaning yet more kitchen cabinets, sorting out things that haven't been used in years and probably never will be, and rearranging the remainder.

In addition, I now have six different colors of paint on the walls of the unfinished livingroom, and I don't think I like any of them. Thank goodness for color samples! Also thank goodness for the fact that Daughter went to the furniture store and checked out the piece of material I needed to match the paint. I'll be heading back to the hardware store tomorrow.

And thirdly, we seem to be infested with moths. They are growing in number, and I have no idea how to get rid of them. I kill at least 5-10 a day, and still they show up. They're driving me nuts. Of course, it doesn't help that the whole house is in utter chaos at the moment. Anyone have any ideas to get rid of them?

Until tomorrow, and the dawn's early light...

Picking colors is the hardest thing ever! Good luck.

And the moths? Ewww. I remember reading somewhere how to get rid of them, I think on Raising Five blog, but it was last year sometime.

Okay, those moths? Are they little ones that leave a powerdy residue when you smoosh them? Did you check all the dry goods in your pantry to see if anything is infested? 'Cause I'm hoping you don't have pantry moths. They are way hard to get rid of.

I speak from experience.

Yes, they are pantry moths.

Thanks for the information on how to get rid of them!
