Exterminator Round 2

The exterminator comes again today! We're giving them one more chance to get rid of those stupid little (and sometimes not so little) roaches before we take drastic measure (i.e. move out). We both are really hoping that the second time is a charm since we love our apartment and anywhere else we moved would undoubtedly be a location-and probably square footage-downgrade. But, we're pretty sick and tired of chasing around cockroaches with a can of Mortein every night. I have to admit, it's kind of entertaining and gratifying to watch the stupid things die a slow painful death. But it's also gratifying to be able to bring food into your kitchen without bugs attacking it. So there's that. We'll know in about a week whether we have to bail or not. Say a prayer. 

Anyway, as most of you know, our bug issue has prevented us from really furnishing our apartment. We don't want to buy a bunch of furniture and then have to move it if worse comes to worse. This would be slightly difficult without a car and would make an already unfortunate situation that much more annoying. 

One of us is going insane without furniture. The other one is turning lemons into lemonade, as they say. 

Welcome to our driving range/putting green. Lord help us. 


  1. Hi there, I stumbled on your blog a few days ago and must say I am hooked. I'm Melbournian and it's interesting to see your take on our city and your perspective on living in Victoria. It's funny reading about things I find normal that are novel to expats and I'm sure it would be the same if I lived in your country. Keep up the good work, sounds like you're covering M-town well.
    Let's hope they sought out your apartment soon!
    Cheers, Nat
