The Black Widow




Is anybody itching from head to toe as I am. So I walk out onto the back porch this evening to empty our recycling trash (proud Crystal??) and we have not 1, not 2, but 4 of these creepy, devilish, horrible spiders. I was finished itching until I began writing this and now it's started all over. Can I just tell you how I hate these spiders! And to have a whole family camped out on my porch where my rugrats play. We're in desperate need of a bug man, who has a good one?? So the horror of the porch is still fresh in my mind as I'm straightening my kitchen and I see this huge black widow spider on the counter, staring at me! Thought I had died and gone to you know where. Thankfully I realized it was left from Halloween! I'm going to post this so I can quit staring at these devils and hope my itches go away!

Hi, you don't know me, but I was blog hopping, and came across yours. I was wondering about your way cute template! Did you make it yourself? I had one similar from matiekay.com and their's are no longer available. So I was wondering how you did yours. Thanks!
And that is so creepy about the spiders!!

orouxOh my gosh...I have never seen one of these creatures alive. If I saw one of these in or near my home I don't even know what I would do. You are a brave woman. Did you kill them yourself?? Yuck

So happy to see you took the plunge and started blogging! Now we can keep up on you guys since we hardly ever see you guys anymore! We need to get together for dinner or something! Gross, I am freaking out about your spider discovery! I'm gonna be on a watch out now for my own house! Oh and Tatum and Tucker look so adorable for Halloween! Cute parents too! ha ha

Heather said...

EEEWWWW! Yucky spiders and especially Widows. Where's the Raid when you need it?

Kristin said...

I am so crawling right now. I am disgusted for sure! Nasty, I'm glad they are no longer living at your house. I hope they don't show up at mine next...So far we seem to have avoided them...So far. (Fingers crossed!)

I dont think I would ever go outside again. That is so creepy. Your kids are so cute. I cannot believe how big they are getting.

Crystal said...

My favorite is the one inside...you're brave to admit that in print. And yes, I am proud...little Heidi is growing up.

Mandi said...

Um, Sick!!!! I have scorpions, but spiders scare me way worse than anything! So, bug man...my husband sprays our house, but it just so happens that Tatum's dance teacher, Miss Brittney, has a very friendly husband, and it just so happens that he owns a pest control business. Fate? Maybe. I would definitely check that out when you take Tatum to dance next. We say no to bugs at my house! Will I see you tomorrow? I hope so!

Ashleigh & Zebb Shappell said...

oh and zebb's friend casey sprays our house and we haven't had one bug, well i found a dead spider once on the floor of my kitchen...but it was dead when i found it so thats all that matters, he comes every SIX weeks (not sex weeks heidi)

Shabwan said...

That's my girl...got all that fear from your mom! I have the itches just looking at them...you know they are watching you...just waiting to leap on you and send you screaming as you slap your self crazy like a wild woman. Like the mean stepsister in Everafter when she found out it was Cinderella who had been spending time with the prince...and then she says..."It was a bee"...sorry I was rambling...hate the spiders!!!

The Nichols Family said...

If I saw one I would make Lukey kill it for me. He's not afraid of anything. Call him next time!

Kim said...

while spiders are creepy, I don't have quite the same fear as your whimpy mom. And then there's uncle B who, at the mere mention of a black widow, will put him in the fetal position. You should just email a picture to him.

Michelle Bradley said...

Those are the worst! I think they're a close 2nd to scorpions! I hate going out to my pool equipment at night because I always see at least 4 out there! Freaky!

Jamie Young said...

No way!! Please tell me you zoomed way way in to get such a close shot of those nasty creatures! Thanks for your comment and my friend did my header for me with photoshop, so I'm no help there, sorry, but yours looks great! See you at park day tomorrow??

Brittanie said...

EW EW EW!! Those pictures are INTENSE! I wouldn't be able to sleep knowing those things are around! Time to call in the professionals!!
