so..........

I put clean sheets on my bed and Noah's bed......go to the bathroom to change into my PJs......and what do I spy on the floor?????? A BIG-ASS spider! I was barefoot....if I had shoes on I would have squished him immediately to make sure he did not escape to sneak back up on me at a later time. I had to walk around the corner to grab my shoe......by the time I came back Mr. Spider decided to high tail it back towards the vent where he came from......I managed to swat him ONCE before he hit the slat in the vent and slipped through! CRAP! Now I have to worry and wonder about that spider and if he will be waiting to surprise my sleepy butt one morning or in the middle of the night if I have to make a quick pit stop! I have no bug spray so I did spray the entire vent with Lysol spray...thinking maybe a CLEAN disinfectant smell would act as a deterrent for him to re-enter my house via that vent. Oh great....now this means maybe he will come back up in MY vent in MY bedroom? OR living room? I feel very creepy crawly!

I went to see my parents tonight for a bit...had a nice visit. I always take my camera with me most everywhere I go now....and definitely on a trip there and back because I always seem to capture some amazing sunsets! I did again...and snapped some while driving which I know is not the safest thing to do. In fact it is dangerous.....I did finally pull off the road and should have stayed off the road at a good spot to get better photos and be safe.....here are a couple..

This reminds me of a Charlie Brown sky.....it looks like someone took pastel chalk and colored the sky canvas! The Peanuts videos always had skies that resembled this....it was gorgeous!

I am tired and want to go to bed but also now wondering if I can ever go to sleep and not worry or wonder about Mr. Spider........crap! I mean I don't want it crawling over me in bed when I sleep or in my ears or nose or mouth! YIKES! AND this was NO SMALL spider....crap........CRAP!

Beautiful photos of the sun setting. The tower looks interesting, your Dad should drive up there some evening to get a shot.

The spider, you probably were able to hit him enough to wound him, and then spraying in the Lysol spray probably did him in.

I think just for luck, I would have gone around and sprayed all of the vents. Anymore if the spider is very, very small and I can see dead shell like things around where hs has his little web, I try not to suck him up when sweeping up the shells of the other dead bugs he's been eating.

But if it's a big ASS spider, forget it, he's getting mashed, squashed, sprayed with bug spray or something to slow him or kill him, because I can't stand the big ones.

Glad Noah enjoyed playing dominoes.
Love you
