Well, today was the day for the mass de-fleaing. It took both me and the roomie, my guy friend "J" and the roomie's nephew and his wife to get it done. Even before the nephew and wife showed up, we had mostly gotten the cats done. Grab a cat, trim nails if needed and put on the flea med; repeat. I will say that we didn't even bother to pick up the meds for the 3 E's, we like our skin on our body, not spread around in bloody piles... The nephew mowed the yard, spread the treatment on the yard. He cleaned out the playpen and treated it. He also sprayed under the new shed and then inclosed it and the porch for my craft shed. Meanwhile, his wife cleaned the walls in the playpen, and the back of the house. She bathed the dogs really, REALLY well and, because she ran out of other things to do, also cleaned the front bathroom. After the back yard was done, the nephew mowed and treated the front yard. He says he's coming back to get the pile of branches out of the back and a lot of the "junk" that didn't go out for the bulk trash. My guy friend and I put together another of the bookcases that we got for the blind roomie, but there was a problem so the nephew had to cut some wood so we could reinforce the "joint" where the two side boards met. The people who made them failed to cut the holes close enough together for the system they made to work. (not pretty , but reinforced.) So, that's how I spent my Saturday - but yesterday's cooking of tuna mac came out GREAT and we didn't next to stop and fix anything! So, what did you do?
