Bed Bugs

I have actually lost sleep lately over these stories. And as a matter of fact, any time I hear the words, I itch all over. The worst infested cities in the US are:

#1. Cincinnati, Ohio

#2. Columbus, Ohio

#3. Chicago, Illinois

#4. Denver, Colorado

#5. Detroit, Michigan

#6. Washington, D.C.

#7. New York, New York

#8. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

#9. Dayton, Ohio

#10. Baltimore, Maryland

Make your travel plans accordingly....And, you're welcome.

I've been here twice looking for Thursday's post. Gah.

Tomorrow morning, I am ripping my bed apart. Magnifying glass and all. I have a little rash, which I think is from the heat, but I've got the itch too.

They don't have them in Italy. ?

Umm, I know. We are heading to Tennessee and St. Augustine and I have seriously had second thoughts because the bed bug stories just freak me out. Told CH our luggage would NOT come in the house till it sits in the workshop/garage for days, vacuumed, hit with a steamer and fumigated. He just rolled his eyes at me. I don't care, Yikes.

my daughter ran into this at a very posh, very expensive hotel in Los Angeles. yuck, yuck, yuck, she had bites all over...it was sickening.
I get completely freaked when I hear these stories and have even been reconsidering our vacation.

I'm right between Philadelphia and Baltimore. Today, on the way to work, I saw a mattress on the sidewalk in town. WTH? Creeped me out.

I told my son "Good night, don't let the bed bugs bite" and he says "they won't get me, I used your bug spray" That would be Noe Noe's "Bug Thug"...
