Sunday morning a bit after 7 I was back in bed after my fiftieth trip to the bathroom, slowly drifting back to sleep. All of a sudden, I felt a tickle on my arm. The kind of tickle you think is some hideous bug coming to attack you, but is really nothing, or at most a hair. Somehow half-awake I managed to brush my arm (just to be sure) and hit something. I screamed (just a bit) and sat up much faster than I have in a long time (fear makes lifting your giant body a lot easier) and look down to see a sick spider with half his legs now scattered on the bed. Of course the scream woke Aaron up too, and he kindly removed the carcass and parts from our bed. After my heart settled I went back to sleep, but now I will never be able to ignore that little tickle or itch ever again. Don’t you love fall when all the bugs move inside?

    I’m sorry, but after I leave this frail existence, on the top of my list to approach Heavenly Father with will be arachnids. I don’t like to use the word mistake in this case, however, if we need whatever they do, than I feel it would have been kinder to create spider-like creatures to look like delicate flowers or ones as cute as ladybugs, but with the same function. This way there would have been fewer mutilations, like in your case Kelsey.

    Off-topic, but I’m also going to speak to God about vegetables. More children would eat tons of veggies if they tasted like candy, and less candy if it tasted like vegetables. In fact, there would be no need for candy. Veggies would be a treat.

    Now… I realize some of you will be posting, “My kid loves vegetables, etc.” Well, good for them but MOST kids prefer junk food of all kinds. The truth be know, so do we.

    Just two things to speak to God about. I won’t criticize, but I kinda want his take on spiders, veggies, and junk food.

    I in fact DO NOT like it when the bugs move inside! Sick Spiders should be banned! That is right up there with the freaking cricket that appeared out of nowhere in my house. By the way, I TOTALLY blame Dad for my car, it’s most definitely his fault. He brought it up, not me!
