I Told Him I Was Leaving....

This post should have taken place on Friday or sometime over the weekend or basically sometime since a week has past...but sometimes life gets the better of me!

I threatened my husband that I was going to take the kids and move before he got home if I found another one of these:



And I am SO not joking!

I found this behemoth of a spider in MY shower!! And don't try to tell me it's not that big....


This is that damn thing in relation to the size of the drain!

I will not lie - I screamed like a little girl. I am not normally the one who is afraid of spiders and snakes and such (that is my husband) but this thing scared the shit out of me! I have never before in my life seen a spider this big that was not in a cage.

And yes, I did think to grab the camera and send pictures to my husband just in case they all came out and ate me when I went to bed that night after killing one of their friends. And yes, I am still completely spooked about it; even a week later. There has not been a time yet that I've taken a shower and I haven't moved every single shampoo/body wash bottle and shaken out the shower curtain to ensure there is not another one lurking.

Um, I hate to go against the crowd here, but it doesn't really look that big to me. Maybe because I've seen behemoth creepy crawlies throughout Asia? Glad it and it's friends didn't eat you alive, though! :-)

Amy said...

Shan of course you would say that! But if you hadn't been out traveling the world and you saw this in your shower - I'm sure you would have freaked a little bit!

We just don't have things that big here on a regular basis :-)

OBSCENITY ALERT:

This Blog is my outlet. It's where I share my thoughts and feelings. It's a place where I can vent. Not everyone thinks alike. People don't always share the same religious or political views. Some people (like me!) occasionally think in more “colorful” terms than others. Sorry, but I'm a big girl and can use cuss words and talk about not-so-mainstream stuff if I want to. If you find that sort of language offensive / shocking / annoying, you may want to stop reading now. Life as a military wife ain't always pretty. It's my life, though, so don't say I didn't warn you.
