You know, I think of myself as a brave person. I'm not afraid of much of anything. When we had two snakes INSIDE our house a few years ago, I was the one that killed one. Don't even know where the other one went. It got away. That didn't bother me. When we had a rat in the house, that made me more mad than scared. I'm not scared of the mice that visit our house every once in a while. Nope, no fear here. Except.....
when it comes to spiders.
Aaaauuggghhhh!!! I can't stand spiders! I know I'm bigger than they are. I know all I have to do is step on them. I know that a snake is more deadly than the spiders that we have around here. (We will find a black widow every once in a while.) I know all of this. I doesn't matter! I HATE SPIDERS!
I don't know what it is about them that freaks me out. Is it the way that they walk? Just thinking about it sent a shiver up my spine. Is it the fact that they can hide almost anywhere? (Another shiver) Or is it the fact that there are so many spiders? ( Ok, double shiver) I don't know. I just don't like any of it.
When (or if) Hubby gets this new job, he will have to be gone from the house for 8 to 10 weeks. WHO will kill my spiders? I'm not going to call up my neighbor. I would be to embarrassed.
All I know is that this time of the year, the spiders bring it on themselves to give me a heart attack whenever I get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. Almost EVERY TIME!!!Enough already! Then I go back and wake up Hubby so he can kill it. The good guy that he is, he doesn't complain.
The spiders that are invading us right now, are not your run-of-the-mill spiders. Ooooohhhhh NO! They are the elephant size suckers that could eat our St. Bernard. I mean, they are HUGE!!!!! I believe that Skeeter, my weenie dog, hides in our room so that they won't take her. No joke people! lol.
When Hubby does go out of town for his training, don't be surprised if you hear about some woman shooting a hole in her house because she was trying to kill a spider. I mean, I'm going to have to kill them some how.
So until next time,
Small Farm Girl, spider hunter.
