About Me

My photo

I am a very lucky woman with a husband and son who are smart, witty and entertaining. Our son, B, attended public school for two years, and then we embarked on a new adventure in the Fall of 2010 - homeschooling. We don't have all the answers, but we know B and this has been the best thing for him. I blog to preserve our stories and our memories, share recipes, vent and ramble on about our crazy, yet blessed, life. Would you care to follow along?

EEK!

I can't sleep.  I'm up watching a movie and surfing Pinterest.  My cup was empty and I went into the kitchen to refill it.  As I approached the fridge, I stepped on something that went, "Crunch."  *sigh*  Is it a piece of cat food or something B dropped, I wondered.  I look down, and it was this:
HOLY CRAP!  I just killed a bug with my bare foot!  And bug killing is "men's work"!  I turned around, grabbed a paper towel and turned back to the bug.  The mother fucker was walking away.  (As I type this, I keep running my hand over the right side of my neck because I feel like something is crawling on me!)  I scoop him up with the paper towel and squish really hard until I hear multiple crunches.  Before tossing him in the trash, I opened the paper towel to ensure he's dead.  I sighed in relief and turned to the sink to wash my hands and found this:
(Please don't judge me by the crud on the wall behind the sink.  There is only builder primer on the kitchen walls; the owner never painted a semi-gloss and there is years' old shit in that wall.)  I am so proud of myself for not screaming bloody murder.  But I did jump and clutch my heart, though, waiting for it to restart.

I can just hear the hubs now, "And that's what you get for staying up late!"  It's a good thing he doesn't read my blog.  If he finds out he's right about something, it will totally goes to his head.

  1. While on vacation this past week with the in-laws, the hubs told me that the spider I took a picture of was a POISONOUS Brown Recluse Spider! He had killed 2 before I saw this one and didn't tell me because he "...didn't want to upset..." me.
