Spider

Y'all my spider is a girl. She has an egg sac. You'd think that would make her hungrier but she is completely ignoring the cricket in there.

At least now I know why she was so grumpy the night I caught her. I imagine her back hurt and she had to pee and her feet were killing her.

My husband found it, truly dead this time, about 2 feet from where I last saw it run under the stereo cabinet. It had run behind the very house shoes I was using to try to squash it and died there. Is that ironic? Or just Alannic?

OMG, this morning! I came downstairs as usual to make coffee and boot up my computer. I'm all fuzzy because I haven't been up long, so when I see something dark on the carpet I'm not sure what it was. I cautiously move over closer and squint at it. Sure enough it's one of These. It was ok, because it was dead. All over on it's back, not moving, so I mosy into the kitchen and get the handbroom and the dustpan to sweep it up.

Once I get back to the dead roach and begin to sweep it onto the dustpan, it comes alive again and runs for the furniture. OMG OMG OMG! I'm smacking at it with the hand broom but because it's hitting bristles-side down it's not doing any damage. Finally it comes to rest and flips over on its back near my husband's house slippers that he keeps down here in case his feet get cold. I grab one of them and start smacking away at the thing until it moves no more. Then I try to sweep it onto the dustpan and I'll be darned if the damn thing didn't jump up again and run under the stereo cabinet.

That thing is way too heavy to move so I grabbed the bug spray and sprayed all under there. I hope I got it because if I didn't that means it's lurking...

These nasty creatures are really common in the Southern U.S. and if you've been here any time at all you'll have seen one. They are gross and they can fly so no where is safe from them. The one (tiny) bright spot is that they don't breed inside the house so they don't infest you like German cockroaches will. They only come in looking for warmth and sometimes water. They'll all be dead after the first frost too, so we won't have them around much longer. They are seriously gross though.
