I’m home alone this week while the FH is going to a friends wedding back east. Anyway, I was locking up 5 minutes ago and there was the biggest spider I’ve ever seen by the back door…INSIDE THE HOUSE!!! I freaked out a little, well a LOT before I decided that I had to kill it or else it could end up in my bed. So i grabbed the spider spray and started spraying and IT STARTED CRAWLING TOWARDS ME! I screamed and stepped on it and almost slipped. I’m seriously freaked out right now, but glad that I killed it. I just needed to tell someone, everyone I could call to commiserate is sleeping 🙁
Did I mention that I am extremely arachnaphobic? I’m seriously still shaking…

Oh I hate spiders!! Good job girl! Now relax, dream of dresses, your groom, shoes, dancing, and cakes!! Sleep tight, maybe with the bug spray near by for a safety blanket.

Funny to see this post this morning, only ten minutes after waking my poor Fiance out of a dead sleep in a panic. We live in northern Wisconsin, and Wolf spiders are common here. Huge, ugly, aggressive, and disgusting! Well, this summer, we have had three in the house, and two hanging out on the porch outside…not to mention the one that was sharing the couch with me when I sat down to drink my morning coffee this morning. I just happened to glance over…and started screaming for the Fiance. Lol! He used some wasp killer and took care of the issue but my heart is still racing!

Spiders like to come inside in the summer to beat the heat.
We have ginormous spiders here (way up north, one of the only things that survives in diversity are the bugs! ick ick ick!) I have definitely seen some that are like, the size of my palm.
What squicks me out the most is when the wolf spiders get smashed mulitple times with shoes and still.don’t.die. They are like 8 legged terminators or something!

ahhh good for you! I have learned not to be afraid of spiders..only because I am deathly afraid of CENTIPEDES! I HATE them!! We get them every so often after it rains (they love moisture). So spiders are nothing compared to them. We get them more often than spiders! I hate it! I can never kill them…I need Fiance to get them!…ahh hate them!

oh you poor thing…i would have done the same thing.
don’t ever come to texas. they say everything is bigger in texas for a reason. i may or may not be terrified to kill these giant insects and may or may not trap them under cups (for days on occasion..) until my fiance gets home to dispose of them.

Good job! Better to kill it than let it sneak away before you can get it. 🙁
I hate the spiders that are little and black and run really fast. Or the big chunky ones that are outside in the summer in the midwest. They used to be all over the streetlights and even porchlights in Madison..
Funny thing is that in our relationship, my partner is the one who has arachnaphobia! It’s the only thing he’s really freaked out by.
