Ants! Ants everywhere! They aren’t even in our kitchen, but instead they’re in our computer room. They honestly don’t bother me any, but my boyfriend basically panics when he sees them going after a crumb or a place where our Siamese cat has thrown up (gross, I know). It’s not like we’re pigs. The place is clean – Cluttered, but clean!
Anyway, there’s been much discussion about how we’re going to get rid of our little six-legged friends. I’ve been really, really torn about it. I couldn’t figure out why it was bothering me so much until today when I was going over the concepts of ahimsa and non-violence. I realized that’s why it had been bothering me. These little guys have as much right to be alive as I do.
My mother reminded me of bay leaves, though. So I’ve strategically placed them about the room in hopes of making the ants go hang out somewhere else. I will update you when I find out if this works or not.
Wish me luck! I don’t want to have to kill them. (There was so much more I wanted to say in this blog post, but my brain just sort of failed me and it’s time for dinner.)
