OKAY...I OFFICIALLY HATE FLORIDA! HERE'S WHY:
Greg's not home and I just had to kill a HUGE spider myself. I'm ready to pack my bags and head for NY.
I first saw it in our bedroom while I was putting clothes away. I ran for the bug spray and sprayed him, but he moved so fast, that it didn't do anything to him. I lost him behind Greg's dresser and watched for a long time, but couldn't find him. I didn't want to see him again, but I wanted to know where he was. I gave up and went in to use our master bathroom and saw, what is hopefully the SAME spider, crawling along the mirrors by our tub. So, I got the spray again and had to use a broom handle to move some things away until it showed up again. I must have sprayed him 30 times before he finally dropped and slowed down. Eventually he stopped moving. This is the 2nd wolf spider in our bathroom within a few months. WHAT IS GOING ON????????????
Now I want to go to bed, but I'm afraid to.
Anyway...if I can get my heart to stop pounding, I think I'll be okay.
Well, Greg says it wasn't a wolf spider, but actually a "Huntsmen" spider. They look a lot alike and are about the same size, so it caused the same chemical reaction in my brain, high blood pressure and nearly heart failure, BUT, I just thought I'd let you know the correct name for my friendly house guest (as Greg assures me they are harmless). Well, I would like to know the definition of harmless! I think a spider big enough to make your heart stop is not harmless, but what do I know?!? LOL
If you want to see the ugly thing, you can look it up online! haha And, when I say ugly, of course I mean a beautiful creation by the hand of God.
