I wish I was kidding. I am not.
Besides the mice that seem to occupy both the upstairs and downstairs of our home, we have had a huge trail of worms on our ceiling for the last week.
Like a trail of them…crawling. Across our kitchen ceiling.
It’s so delightful. NOT!
Sometimes you think, “Momma don’t have time for that!”
And then worms appear.
Crawling across your ceiling.
Yes. This is how seemingly life is handed to people, eh?
If it’s not children in and out of doctors. It’s mice pooping everywhere. Then it’s camping baths for at least a week while they convert your home from coal to gas. Lastly there are worms.
You can make a list similar to mine. Well, hopefully not the hospitals and mice and worms. The camping baths are okay. A good bucket of hot water can help a momma get kids clean…
But I know you have this list. And you think, “Do I REALLY need to stand on a stool and KILL these worms—or can I just let them continue to crawl?”
Or, perhaps, “Is it ABSOLUTELY necessary for me to discover WHERE these worms are originating from???”
You may even give yourself a few days to just let everything overrun your home. And that’s okay. It’s called rest. Believe me. If you don’t sit and take it, life is not going to get any cleaner.
And after that coffee and rest you may FINALLY muster up the courage to try and find the source of the worms.
You may EVEN be married to a brilliant man that actually has an epiphany, “HOT CHOCOLATE!”
That’s when you both rush to the cabinet above the sink and open it up. Out fly moths. Out crawl worms. And at the bottom of that shelf is a bag of natural “homemade” fruit tea dried compote. Hence the worms.
With great rejoicing that you have found the source, you dump the entire contents in the trash and begin the new process…
Clean up the mess on the shelves and get rid of the worms that were beginning to turn into moths. Because you know what moths do? Destroy.
Yes. Worms on the ceiling. It is a thing. And perhaps you have them, too.
I hope you are able to find the source of your frustration, get rid of it, clean it up, and begin the next moment fresh!
Because, after all, this isn’t really just about worms, is it?!
