Humble Pie

Don't you just love a good serving of Humble Pie?

I have been eating it every day since my wonderful delightful weekend escape with my husband.

First I had a mini ant invasion and after a little baby powder the ants were gone. You see the baby powder is too fine for the ants and it makes a barrier they won't cross. So I was very proud of myself for dealing with the pests.

Then a few of my friends were having ant problems in their houses. I was SO sympathetic towards them because "I have never had ant problems in my house in 9 years of living here. That is really crummy for you!"

Then this weekend we stayed in a lovely little cabin on the Sabinal River. The only problem was the ants. They were in the kitchen and bathroom and they were annoying. Who wants ants on their bath rug?

So I came home and was so proud. I after all have never had an ant infestation. Something is clearly wrong with these people who do have problems.

I bet you can guess what I found on my return from the cabin.


In my kitchen, which is a really annoying place to have them. And you know what? Baby powder is not helping. And today they were still here with a vengeance, when I thought they were mostly gone.

So, world, I am confessing. I was proud and snooty and thought better of myself.

I apologize. And repent. And I may have to clean out some cabinets and caulk some cracks.
