The Fruit Fly House!
Both kids are here this week, so I've been helping both with their schoolwork online all day. It's a job sometimes, but they are getting an education, so I'm working hard for them as I can. I hope they remember this time that Grandma helped them with a smile because you see, crazy things happen in this house while they are learning. Oh, the online school is still going on but weird stuff can be happening behind the scenes. It's time like these that I hope they both have pressed the mute button and the cameras are off for the moment.
For instance, we had a lot of apples given to us recently and a lot of fruit flies came in with them. Nothing I tried seemed to be working (cleaning like crazy and the vinegar trick). Just let me tell you about yesterday, when it all seemed to blow up.. those fruit flies had families. It seemed like we had a swarm of flies everywhere (I think my imagination and tears overcame me). Really, I was just getting wore out trying to kill them.
It was about that time the online school just fell apart, I looked over at the grandboy and he was standing up in his school chair swatting fruit flies. What a sight. Then, the girl just moments later decided she was just going to melt into the floor (her snow globe picture was not up to par). Oh man, your guessed it, Grandma lost complete control of the classroom.
So now, the kids are calling us the fruit fly house!
I know you want to know what finally worked. Believe it or not a fly swatter! So, if you can imagine a old woman (that's what I've become after yesterday) her hair up with a bun hitting the cabinets with a fly swatter, with all my force, your good. It was like, Bam, got another! I probably looked like a mad woman. It must of worked, I've only seen one this morning, and I'm going to kill it when it lands on something. Bam!
