Unwanted Guests

One of the darkest times in recent years was when I thought we had bed bugs.  (It turned out we didn't.)

Reading this other blog post today about bed bugs reinforces my commitment (and time) to trying to keep our home clutter free.  With all of Mr. Quimby's travels, I worry it is just a matter of time.

I still save (and always will) the girls clothes, books, and toys for the local consignment sale.  But I also go to the pregnancy aid center or the thrift store for a drop off every 2 weeks.  It's so much easier to take one bag or box every 2 weeks of housewares, linens, shoes, and slippers than doing it once a year.

My skin crawled with that one as well. When I read your title, I thought either lice or bed bugs had found you. Glad they haven't!
