Itsy, Bitsy, SPIDER!


Or not so itsy, bitsy.... Remember our spiders, last summer? The one who hid in my closet?

Well, this year, one of that spider's relatives came for a visit. This spider preferred our kitchen. I really can't say too much about it; I almost cry thinking about how close I came to stepping on this spider, and how I screamed in terror (no joke, ask) for my husband to come right away, making him believe I had cut off a limb.

All I know is... we are having someone come out and spray around our house... TOMORROW.

Photos are SOOC because... well.... I can't stand looking at them long enough to actually edit them.

Oh, it's ok. It's just gettin' you ready for Halloween.

He's pretty big maybe you could have a taxidermist work him up for you and you could hang him as some Halloween decor! ; )

p.s. I am making light of this but I would have been screaming too...

YIKES! I too use a plastic cup for bugs I don't want to kill myself, but that guy looks like he could he needed glass! Did Adam like it? There was a big spider on the wall of our garage the other night and Evan says, "I wanna touch it," and I say Aughhh! NO!

Eww - that reminds me of the banana spider I found in my living room on the floor. Don't google it - just trust me when I tell you it's gross.
