Holy Leapin' Arachnids, Batman!

So here I am packing odds and ends for a weekend away and making sure I have clean laundry to come back to. On the way to the washing machine I find that there is one small large [fuzzy, eight-legged] obstacle that looked something like this:

Now, it's no secret that I'm an absolute girl about insects with a special place in my heart own personal hell for arachnids.

It's my parents fault. Really.

I mean what sane parent allows their small child to watch the movie "Arachnophobia." I have a hard time killing the little buggers too. I know it's ridiculous to think that they will rally the troops and attack or something, but every time I see one I think about this:

[If you were wondering, I check my shower every time.]

So, as we have established, I am much to much of a girl to kill said nasty. So what was my solution? I contemplated skipping the laundry all together but there were things I wanted to take with me. So I tip-toed around the spider hoping I would not provoke it. [Some spiders will actually run at you {e.g. Hobo Spiders and yes, we have them}]

So far, so good, but I still haven't gotten my stuff out of the the dryer.



  1. Oooh. Spiders freak me out too! Even that pic gives me the willies!
    Happy GNO!

  2. FYI. I absolutely WILL NOT watch that video. You totally can't make me. I have never seen it but can only imagine what its like. Good luck with the laundry. Hope you don't find a surprise in one of your socks.

  3. Ok, first they was the spider picture caught me. And I must of had my speakers on really loud because the music came on and I almost peed my pants! : )

  4. LOL! Thanks for the much needed laugh! It's easy for me to laugh because I would have done the exact same thing. I hate them, but just can't kill them. Sad Really, but that's what my husband's for.

    Happy VGNO

  5. I absolutely HATE spiders... and snakes.

    Happy VGNO!

  6. I'm with you - I hate spiders (and any type of bug). I guess it's good that I have three sons, I can make them do my bug-killing for me, LOL! My daughter is like me, she won't get near any creepy-crawly thing.

    Happy VGNO

  7. Chicken, blame on me.. I've told you, your a million times bigger than they are squish it!!
    Oh and are you afraid of werewolves brat?? Hehe..

    Love ya,
    Your Mother
