It's That Time Again...

I blogged about this last year. I thought I was going to get away with not having troubles with it this year, but I was wrong! The flies are back and just as bad as in the past. It's disgusting! On top of that, the ladybug type things are in full swarm as well. In my short trip to the mailbox I was bombarded with ladybugs and luckily made it back inside with only about 10 on me. You should have seen the mailbox-there were thousands on it! You could barely tell that it is suppose to be white and forget about reading the house number! I'm afraid to go back outside-it is SO gross!

I took a couple pictures (from inside) and a video, so you could see the flies and ladybugs that are out right now. Take a peek if you can stomach it. I'm really glad I'm not a clean freak-this would make me go totally insane! (I'm already part way there-LOL!)

This is the awning over the kitchen window.

This is one of our west windows. Most of the dots (flies/ladybugs) are on the outside...thankfully!

The video shows the swarming going on outside. You can hear Blake in the background saying "fly!" and Morgan trying to help him catch one.

There is an upside to all these flies, though. Morgan and Blake think it's a blast! They love watching me vacuum them all up and Morgan even caught a pet fly yesterday. She carried it around in a little container all proud of it and everything. LOL! We were even able to make it part of her preschool lesson since 'F' was the letter of the day. We topped off the lesson by reading "A Fly went by". Maybe I'm getting more used to them than I should be? LOL!

Alright, I'm off to vacuum up more flies with a big sarcastic 'Yay!' LOL!

That doesn't sound good at all.
I don't like flies. Ladybugs don't bother me at all. Sorry for your troubles.
