My Secret Shame....

There's been a great deal of discussion of the matter of bedbugs in the news lately. It can happen to anyone, especially if you've stayed in hotels, which seems to be their favorite breeding ground. Well, Collin and I have stayed in hotels extensively...and yes, it's happened to us.


We have bedbugs.


It's not an easy thing to confess, but I have photographic evidence of our infestation. See for yourself....




They're mating, for crying out loud! How many bugs will we end up with
before this ordeal is over?


They've taken over our TV!


They even eat in bed--and leave me the wrappers!


Now this has gone too far! The sleepovers have got to stop!!!

(The bugs featured here are actually from Hallmark's Love 'Em, Bug 'Em collection. The Minions are from Universal's Despicable Me, and Rufus the naked molerat is from Disney's Kim Possible animated series. Aren't they cute?)


NOTE: I hope you'll check out my fictional characters' roundtable discussion at Beishir Books!


Also, My novel Final Hours is available free for Kindle at Amazon today and tomorrow only....

    Adore the first three bed bug photos. At lest they didn't eat crackers in bed ! I don't have any of them but I sent the Love Bugs out at Valentines stuffed with treats. Love the little Minions.
    I agree with William.... cute !

    1. I'm the same way, Parsnip! For all my efforts to simplify life and have less stuff, this is the one thing I have yet to be able to cut back on....

  4. The one with the remote must be watching the food network - he has that happy expression.

    1. Certainly not! (Though I did consider having the exterminator pose for a photo with them when he makes his regular visit!)

  7. If you're going to have an infestation, I'd rather have cute adorable bugs like you have instead of the horrifying spiders that I get in my house.
