Gross!!!

Ok. I love spring. But!!! There are 2 things that I really don't like about spring. Comes with the territory though I guess. I don't like storms. Thunder and lightning is fine, but when they get violent, count me OUT!!! Then...the bugs. Bugs in general don't really bother me, but spiders...eeew, and those disgusting house centipedes (some people call them silverfish), GROSS!!! Well, here's a funny story about bugs for your entertainment.

I got to work on Thursday and there was one of those almost white spiders on the wall behind my cubicle. I swatted it. It fell. I don't know if I killed it or not, but I have NO IDEA where it went so I was paranoid all day. Then, Friday morning rolls around. I was in the bathroom getting ready for work when a huge housefly decided to pay me a visit. Now, I don't have a problem with flies, this one just so happened to scare me half to death because I didn't see it before it buzzed me. Here comes the funny - well not really funny for me - part. My coat comes apart. It has an inside fleece lined jacket, and an outer jacket part. I love my coat, I really do! Thursday I had taken it apart and was only wearing the outer jacket because the weather was gorgeous! I hung up the inside part on one of the chairs in the living room when I got home. When I got done getting ready for work, I went to put my coat on. It was going to be colder so I planned on putting the two parts together again. I put the inside part on, and grabbed the outside part. I swung it around, threw an arms in and flipped my hand over to snap them together and there was a house centipede on the heel of my palm!!! My coat came off in about .0000000000001 seconds. I danced around for a few minutes with my heart in my throat then shook the CRAP out of both pieces, turning them inside out and everything. I planned on washing them last night just to be on the safe side but didn't have time to. That's definitely on my list of things to do now!!!

I picked up a mattress and box spring set a few years ago. When I took it home, I stored it in the garage until I had time to rearrange the bedrooms. Once I got everything in order, I put the new bed in the bedroom and made it. That night, I crawled into bed looking forward to a good night's sleep. I woke up about 45 minutes later to something small and crawly chewing on my leg. It was one of the biggest carpenter ants I'd ever seen. I think you can assume that I didn't sleep much the rest of that night, or the following night...
