There’s a rat in my house and it has destroyed my oven.
I bought a new range today and the girl screwed up and now I have absolutely no idea when it will be delivered.
My existing range smells like rat pee and I want it gone but I am hesitant to move it outside because of the whole delivery issue above. To combat the smell, I am simmering lemongrass, lemon balm, rosemary, lemon, ginger, and cloves on the stove. I can still smell rat in my kitchen.
I feel disgusting being in my own home. I even paid someone to clean today for the first time ever and my house still feels gross to me because RAT.
I feel violated.
I have been sick for almost 4 weeks. I am so fucking tired of being sick.
My mom is seriously sick. She has the same thing I do but her body is not handling it well and I’m so worried about her. I stopped by today and she couldn’t even open her eyes to talk to me. She saw he doctor yesterday but she’s worse today. I have serious fears about losing my mom (leftover from childhood–not entirely rational, but how many emotional things really are?) and this shit just rattles me.
I kicked Catch and Charlotte out for a few days so I could get some rest but instead I am here dealing with Ratgate.
Exterminators can’t get here until Monday morning.
We are missing a family Christmas celebration tomorrow due to my illness and I am seriously bummed. But I can’t be around my medically fragile grandmother when I’m sick.
I really just want to cry but I’m too fucking tired and I need that energy to continue battling Ratgate.
Look at my beautiful asshole of a two year old? Isn’t she perfect?
