Rabid Wolf Spider!

So, the other night I was standing at the kitchen counter cutting potatos when I dropped one on the floor. I bent down to get it and came FACE to FACE with this!!!

First let me say that I have ZERO fear of spiders. HOWEVER, this was the hugest spider I had ever seen outside of a pet store! I thought for sure once it set it's little eyes on me it would for sure karate me in the face! No such thing happened and I was able to slowly move away.

Now, here was the dilemma....how do I get this thing outta my house? My first thought was that if I pick up the bowl it's probably gonna attack me with some kung fu type stealth so I better be faster than kung fu. Hmm....maybe I'll pick up the bowl and fling it into the sink, spray that sucker into the garbage disposal and turn it into spider soup. Then I felt bad for even thinking that.

I ended up getting my daughter (who screamed her little pea pickin' heart out when she saw it) to open our front door so I could pick up the bowl, briskly walk outside and set the bowl down all without getting attacked. Amazingly, it worked and the spider didn't even kinda try a move on me! Thinking it might be a dead spider, I poked it....it wasn't dead. It stayed on our front porch for a few days on the lip of that bowl when I finally told the spider if she was gonna continue to stay on my bowl, she was gonna have to pay rent.....that bowl's for my cats!!!!

A couple days later she left and three more of her cousins showed up. I was walking down the steps in front of our house and damn near walked right into this....

This I knew, was a harmless Writing Spider. I halted in my tracks and just walked through the yard so I wouldn't disturb the construction of this little guy's house, only to have my Mom whack it to a bloody pulp with her shoe later that evening! After all I went through to keep these alive!!!!

I say just walk around them and leave them be. All they're gonna do is eat mosquitos......

The wolf spider is a bit crazy and scary...kind of like that ginormous fishing spider I found in my kitchen!
AAWWWW poor spidey, I don't kill them, I have a bug jar to take the inside ones out, and the outside ones are left to be. At least you tried.

Where I'm At

I have no internet access at work and it's killin' me. It's nuts how hooked on that shit I am! I'm used to havin' Facebook open all day.....chattin' with friends, lookin' at all the stupid shit posted.....no mas. One day, I'm gonna go missin' and my new co-workers are gonna find me huddled in a corner rockin' back and forth droolin' on myself mumblin' somethin' about Facebook destroyin' my life. I hope they just put me outta my misery right then and there.......

Unfortunately, my blog's gonna take the biggest hit. I've always blogged from from work. It was nice and quiet and I could THINK which is somethin' that's dang near impossible to do at home. This whole havin' a husband and kids thing doesn't really afford me the time or the quiet I need to write.

Today though I decided I don't really care about all those hours of Facebook updates. They were amusing at work, but once I'm at home, ehhh...…
