Swine Flu and Crawly Critters

Well, it's confirmed. We now have three official cases of H1N1 (swine flu) in our school district. Yippee skippy. The students were all sent home with an informational letter from the county health department yesterday and I'm already having to field several inquiries as to whether or not the librarian is out with Swine Flu - since I've been her sub for 2 days in a row now. What really annoys me is that this official information from the county sites "fever with sore throat and a cough" as the big red flag for H1N1. Seriously? That's it?? Of course, this gets me freaking out when I woke up with a sore throat this morning and I remembered the hacking fit I had during school yesterday. Must be Swine Flu!

They're baaaack! ANTS!! I hate them! The sandy soil in Arena is just primo for housing the little demons and I was greeted by about two million of them yesterday when I got home from school. Brian apparantly must have Swine Flu too because he had left me three cute little piles of dog upchuck to find upon my arrival. This in itself is enough to make me go Ewwwww, but add to it that 2 of the 3 piles were literally MOVING with all the ants that were crawling all over them and I about lost it. Seriously. Gross. Last year, I had those little ant traps placed all over the house, but I don't think I can realistically do that this year considering I have a toddler who runs all over the place and will pick up anything he can find and put it in his mouth. Any brilliant suggestions on how to keep my house from being taken over by these critters?
