I’m Being Invaded

So I go to the vet this morning to get one of the dogs nails clipped and come home to run into a spider web on my front porch which was odd considering it wasn’t there when I left. So I get the broom and start cleaning away some cob webs all the way around the door frame and porch. No spiders seen. The little bastards must’ve been sleeping so I thought. I’m back inside and head to the bathroom, spider on the floor. Step on it, dead. No problem. Go to the kitchen sink later, spider on the window sill all camped out. Kill it dead. No problem. Upstairs in the extra bedroom, spider on wall, kill it dead. Getting annoyed now. Kitchen making dinner, one of those jumping spiders on my counter top next to the stove, kill it dead. And now, I await the next one to kill.

At least they are not water bugs.

    Why do you want to kill spiders? They eat harmful insects and help people. Didn’t you read Charlotte’s Web?

    {Superstition is when you kill a spider if you say Money while doing it, you’ll come into some cash)

    …Hasnt worked yet. 🙁

    (Blogmad hit, ding ding.)

    Two words:
    Vacuum cleaner. 🙂 Use the wand.
    Although personally, I like spiders and usually leave them alone.

    Now go hunting!

    I have a simple rule with spiders — outside youre safe inside youre dead LOL

    our worst spider story was when my hubby killed a spider and it “exploded” into a bunch of baby spiders — it mustve been carrying an egg sac or something

    i get itchy just thinking about it
