Arachnophobia

Last week while Greg was up in Salt Lake for his monthly enrollment counselor meeting, Anthony told me there was a spider on the Love Sac. I hoped it was dead, but no...sadly it was VERY alive. It was about the size of a nickel {the pictures don't do it justice} and was crawling toward the edge. I knew I had to take care of it, but I'm not terribly fond of spiders. I don't necessarily have a phobia of spiders - they just creep me out. I wanted to take some pictures before I killed it so I could have some proof that I actually took care of it by myself {C.J. wasn't home to rescue me} :O( and when I started taking pictures of it, it moved even faster so I quickly {and bravely I might add} smashed it/picked it up with my two paper towels and hurried to throw it in the garbage. Eeewww.



This is as it's crawling away from me. Apprently it didn't like the flash!

Gross! The last time I used a papper towel, i was trying to shake it into the toilet and it crawled out and onto my hand. I now use duck tape. Stick it, flick the back (to insure a good stick), fold it, and throw it away. You are very brave. Sarah G

I really hate spiders too. Dylan's the spider killer in my house when Devon's not home. Thank goodness!

YUCK...I'm lucky to have 4 boys around to take care of any pest problems. I also have been known to suck them up in the vacuum.

I hate spiders! I especially dislike the big ones because of the loud crunching noise when you smash them.

OH I HATE BUGS/SPIDERS/COCROACHES
My husband thinks I should not vacuum until Halloween so all the dead bugs (from spraying) look like decor. Nice.
