Black Widow Scare!

It is nearly midnight. I just found a black widow spider. My husband is out of town.
Not only am I deathly afraid of any scary-looking spiders, but a black widow takes the cake. And she is in a really hard to reach spot, under my sink. I was down there to get out the bread maker (we were going to have fresh bread for breakfast tomorrow — not now!) when I saw her scurry back in there. It is pretty dark in there, so maybe I am wrong about her being a huge, black poisonous spider!
If only it wasn't so late, I'd go over to the college boys next door, or call my uncle or brother-in-law who both live nearby. My boys aren't big enough for this job, I don't think! I just don't think I have it in me to kill or trap her tonight.
Thank goodness I just had a swig of NyQuil — maybe I can get some sleep even though my skin is crawling and itching with dozens of imaginary spiders!!! Eeek!
Honey, my Protector Extraordinaire, come home soon!!

  1. I can’t wait to see you!
    And I can’t wait for you to kill that nasty beast.
    I went next store to the college boys’ house, but no one was there except a GIRL!! She actually came over to try to help, but just scared Spidey into hiding better.
    We can’t wait to see you! Everytime I opened the front door today, Daniel has yelled out, “Oh, Hi Dad!” I hate to keep breaking his heart by telling him its just me πŸ™‚
    Love ya and see ya soon!

  2. Yeah for the Smithers family!
    Uncle David just came by and found that lil’ devil and smashed it to bits! It WAS a black widow.
    And while they were here, Toby actually found a Wolf Spider to stomp on. Can you believe it?
    Yeah for the Spider-Slaying Smithers’ Clan!
