Ok! So Ry wakes up from her nap, as does Judah at the same time...I grab Judah from his crib and head to Ry's room. There we are, all waking up , talking, and playing...then, it happens. Ry screams "SPIDER"! I of course am, there is no spider. You are just imagining it because how could there be a spider in here if daddy is not here to get it! So - I look up on the wall and -oh yes - it really was there...very real, and heading down the wall towards the bed. I am trying to figure out how I can just let it stay there for like 4 hours till Mark was home, but I couldn't. This guy was HUGE, mean looking and seemed to have some mission in mind that involved eating me and the kids. So I tell Ry that it is her spider because it is in her room, so she had to kill it! (I know, I know, what kind of mom am i?) She then responds by saying "no way, you are the mom". So here I am trying to figure out the best way to take out this viscous man-eating spider when she says "I am leaving, I do not want to see this". So there I am...just me and Little Judah trapped against out will, trying to decide how many wipes i could keep in my hand and still be able to kill the spider, and not get any of his grossness on me. TEN! ten is what I came up with. It was very thick but I felt like I could still somehow squish the thing. Next, I think " i need some support here." I call so many people on the phone. Did anyone answer? No, not even one! So I make Ry come back in..against her better judgement. I make her count, which she does so super fast then runs like she is in the Olympics away screaming and laughing yelling " I am not gonna watch this". Then I realize..I am all alone. Judah wasn't going to help, no one was answering the phone, and now that spider was looking right at me. It knew I was afraid, it knew it was in was like and old fashion stare down...THEN IT HAPPENED! The stinking spider makes a run for it. Right towards the bed and was either me or him, so I did it!!! I squished the thing!!!!! I screamed and jumped..Judah then screamed, Ry was now laughing so hard she could barely stand...
So - that is it..I killed the spider! I WON! Spider versus Sarah, and Sarah won!!!

Welcome to the world of blogging! ;)

Umm...can I just tell you my husbands obsession with catching spiders and saving them to show me? I HATE spiders, and he somehow thinks he's romancing me or something by showing me unusual ones. In Colorado he actually CAUGHT a black widow, found a container to put it in and brought it home to proudly show me. Just the other day he made Mylo and I come to the basement to see a huge spider he had trapped under one of Mylo's toy bins to show us! is SO creepy!
