Rainy day

It's raining here finally. We really need it too.

I got up around 7AM (DS actually slept pretty late for once!), and made sauce from a whole bunch of tomatoes from our garden.

DS went back in for a nap around 9:15AM so I've just been doing laundry and watching old 90210 re-runs (guilty pleasure).

I had to work this past Friday so it's been a shorter weekend for me. This coming week at work I already know is going to be crazy. We will be starting the bed bug prep on Monday and hopefully the exterminator will come on Tuesday. It's been nuts because both clients are blaming me and the agency for bringing in the bugs.

I seriously think it's an apartment complex issue though because some of the aides have told me that other tenants have them.

Not only that but has anyone seen the NEWS lately? They are all over the place. They had to close down a huge movie theatre in Manhattan due to an infestation.

The icing on the cake is that on Long Island, landlords are not responsible for bed bugs, so I am going to have to figure out how to get my clients money for the treatment, and possibly new furniture.

If it's an apartment complex issue.............I am sure this will not be the end that we hear of this..........and even if it is for awhile I can be sure that at least one of these clients is never going to let me forget that "her staff" is responsible for this mess.

  1. I was just going to say, if other tenants in the building have bedbugs too, your resources are more or less wasted cleaning them out of only two apartments - they WILL come back.

    Bedbugs have been an issue here as well in the past couple years, and it's near impossible to get rid of them for the above reason. Landlords don't have to address them because they are not considered a "public health concern" but rather a "pest".

    Good luck!
