Yikes!

Doesn't that spider just creep you out! Unfortunately since Mark is never around...I am the adult that has to kill all the creepy, crawly insects that are constantly coming inside. It is definitely one way to get my heart rate into the threshold zone. The other slightly embarrassing thing...I am always shrieking or screaming while I am trying to smoosh a spider or catch a cricket. The other night I went out the front door to go switch something on the irrigation timer and the above spider raced as fast as it could towards the door, which resulted in me screamming and trying to stomp on it before it could run inside! Of course it took me several trys before I could get it (those things move fast) and I'm sure all the neighbors just love to hear that I am yet again battling with another creepy crawly. Of course Sydney was at the window screaming as well (sympathy screams). Sophie just screams because she thinks its a wonderful noisy game! Then a few nights ago, no less than 3 giant hopping crickets (all at separate times) made their entrance from behind the computer so I had to catch those amid lots of screams from us. At least they were inside our house. As if it can't get any more dramatic...out of the corner of my eye, I noticed what I thought was a small black snake, so I let out another loud shriek about that. Until I realized that actually it was part of Mark's shoelace that broke off his shoes when I accidentally vacummed the shoelace up. Silly me! On a side note, my old vacume didn't suck up much of anything, but our new vacume is pretty powerful and the shoelace broke off almost before I realized it had caught in the vacume. And I was vacuming over by the door in the first place because of the large amount of sand Sydney manages to pilfer from the playground at school each day inside each shoe. And last but not least, a bee flew in the patio door the other day (Sophie of course left the door open) and it took quite awhile to kill that and of course LOTS of screaming and running from said bee!

I can totally picture that in my that and hear the screaming in my head. Hilarious! Try coming across a spogulid(google it) in your house. I would love to hear those screams! So far i've only found one in this house. . .

I have images of you at Liberty Square trying to kill spiders. . . I think they're made-up images, but I can get a good idea of what happens at your house on a daily basis from them. :)

I HATE spiders....after I kill one, I feel like they're crawling all over me!

I am totally the same way about spiders and roaches, but you'd find me up on a chair or counter screaming for someone else to come and kill it! The kids think it is hilarious!!!

I hate bugs too! Luckily I have Boston to kill all said bugs...when Phil is away (which is most of the time)! You need to get yourself a little boy! They're great!
