Fruit flies from hell

So our kitchen has been overtaken by pesky little fruit flies. There had been some fruit out on the counter, and they just had their way with it.

It really is amazing how quickly a small number of fruit flies can turn into a jillion. It seemed every time I turned around, there were 100 more in the area I had just been looking at. Crazy. So I Googled ways to kill the buggers tonight, and so far it seems to be working. I also got rid of any food sitting out on the counter, and cleaned the disposal drain. I hope their time is up for good in my house.

Tomorrow is Tim's birthday. He is still younger than me, as he likes to point out. Guess he doesn't realize I like being an older chick, anyway. ;-)

Today's stats:
Distance: 3.25 miles
Time: 35:30
Pace: 10:58 minute/mile

A younger man? You cougar you!

My Dad insists that fruit flies come from the stems of bananas and that if you wash your bananas, especially the ends when you bring them home that you won't have fruit flies. I don't know if I believe it but it's not a lot of effort, right?

Hope you get rid of those little buggers!
