I learned I have the most understanding hubby in the world. I can not do a lot of the heavy lifting or bending for our room rearranging and he did most of it but would say "well you are steering, that is important"! And this is supposed to be his week off!

Oh, and I also learned to accept it.

You know, CG, I didn't even think of looking at her plates! I just wanted to get as far away from her as possible. I would like to think that someone who wasn't crapping their drawers maybe did that part.

I learned that the size of the spider directly affects how fast those little buggers run! It took Madeleine standing on the toilet screaming and me tossing water and shoes, and finally trapping it in the plunger to get rid of it. The bathroom is now a complete disaster, but the spider is safely relocated to the outside. Whew.

I hate it when Ken isn't home.

Hey chopper, I like to pretend I'm not afraid of spiders, but the reality is when they run that fast I'm screaming as loud as my kid!

We had a spider (black widow) in the garage yesterday. I back away and my husband and son fight over who gets to spray it with brake clean to kill it!


When I am alone, I usually use a shoe.

This was one of our garden variety "basement" spiders. We have an agreement, if they stay in the laundry room and eat all those gross crawly bugs we live in peace. If they start sprinting across the rec room at me they DIE! If they get lost and end up in a bathroom, then they can sometimes be relocated. Those suckers are freaking HUGE! And they sprint faster than Karl Lewis!

None of those here Nozi. The spiders are plenty scary enough!
