Rough Night. Day Not So Great, Either

In the past 24 hours Casa Jane has dealt with the following:

1) roof leak (Mr. J fields this one.)

2) sick kid -- 103 temp at 1 a.m., 104 temp at 4:30 a.m., 101.5 at 7:30 a.m. assorted body aches. Mom thinks meningitis. Dad thinks appendicitis. Pediatrician (10:45 a.m. appt on Sunday morning -- I love where I live) says flu. Parental tag-team napping Sunday afternoon. Mom and Dad sit down with Palm Pilots to see who is on duty which days this week.

3) discover bug infestation in pantry. Clean out all shelves, chlorox everything, throw out half of food, seal everything else in ziploc bags. (I field this one.)

I am tired.

I would find any *one* of those things exhausting... (Be extra careful with the bug thing, that is if they fly; you might want to wait to restock the pantry...)

Thanks for the tip. They weren't flyers, just little tiny crawly things, about half the size of a grain of rice. The mail culprit was a jar of honey that seemed to have leaked. That and some opened pasta that wasn't sealed up properly. Yuck.
