Mommy Reality Challenge: My Nemesis

Ah Spring…


Such a pretty time of year!

Wait a sec…


Ugh!! NOPE. Screw spring.  Done with it.

It’s the “Battle of the Ants” time and NOBODY ever wins.  — except for maybe these guys:

Fine!  I give up!  Ants, YOU win!  BUT, know this.  Winter will come in just a few short months which means you will be like this:

dead ant

And I won’t even cry for you like I cried for Anty when I watched that movie a few weeks ago when I was a kid, because Anty was actually USEFUL.

Instead, I will go back to focusing on my usual arch nemesis …

  1. OMG Celeste that was hilarious! I can totally relate to both of your nemesis’ you mentioned in this post. We have an ant issue on my street and we all get them in our kitchens every single year! They just don’t die no matter what you use! It’s the craziest and most annoying thing ever!

    Almost as annoying as the house being dead silent when you open your eyes on the morning and you let out the sigh of relief because that means that the kids are still asleep and you can go back to sleep. Then it happens… No matter what position you try to lay in the pee pee dance in your bed begins! And you know the second your feet hit the floor the kids with their super sonic hearing will know you are awake and there goes your sleeping in plans thanks to your bladder! LOL That is the WORST! Bwahaha!

    I’m still on vacation but will try to link-up this weekend once I have a decent Internet connection! Hope you are enjoying your Friday and that you have a great weekend!

    Much love,
    Lysa xx

      Lysa, your description of the restroom situation is spot on. Every single time! Haha. Hope you had a nice rest of your trip! It looks like you’ve had a really nice time so far!

    Not Anty!!! NOOOOO! But the nasty ones crawling around your sink,they should just die-die-die!I do however think that being able to puke rainbows might be useful….. Within reason of course, because it would be scary if they came out the other end!

    In other news, I hear that cinnamon kills ants. Maybe you should give it a try and save on buying the Raid? Your kitchen would smell all wonderful as little ants write and dye in the stuff :)

    • Celeste says:

      I think if we all puked rainbow, the world might be a better place, Jen.

      Cinnamon?? I’m going to give this a try this morning! Interesting!

    OMG, I have been battling ants and ticks!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Hi Celeste, I’d love to know how long it takes for you to set up your blog posts. The gifs (?) and images are great!

    I am probably the only person who will actually step over a line of ants and stop and watch them in wonderment (not entirely true as my Dad does it too and if we’re together there is no moving us!).

    We don’t often get them in the house, but when we do I use vinegar to keep them at bay, they are usually only small ants coming in for the water in the sink.

    • Celeste says:

      It depends on the blog post, Debbie. If I have a clear cut vision in mind that I just need to acquire the gifs for and there’s really little writing like this one, an hour, I’d say. The loooong main Mommy Reality ones where we come up with the meme and the next theme I split up into working on for days, obviously saving the meme/winner part for last.

      I’ve tried vinegar! What kind do you use? It doesn’t seem to work for me… it’s diluted with water in a spray bottle.

  5. Ugh! I hate ants! We seem to get a different kind every year. The little tiny ones, the big nasty ones, and this year so far…SPIDERS! What!?!?!? I might have to burn down my whole kitchen now!

    • Celeste says:

      Ugh… I feel lucky then that I’ve only gotten the smaller kind. But if you find a solution (aside from burning the kitchen down) please let me know!!

  6. There was one crawling across a box in my office this morning!
