Spiders and Snakes!

We live in a basement apartment, its a great apartment in a gorgeous neighborhood, for super cheap.... but I think it might be time for us to part ways! We have spiders, huge brown wolf spiders to be exact and they are gruesome. I will admit that I have a slight case of arachnophobia. Growing up my dad always would come running thinking someone was being murdered when I saw a spider and get so mad at me for screaming, but I have made improvements since high school, up until the last couple of weeks that is, and now my reaction to spiders has digressed, I cant help it and its all Taylors fault!

I couldn't stand the thought of these spiders crawling around my new baby when I turned off the lights, so I sent Taylor to Wal-Mart to pick up some spider glue traps. The packaging said they can also catch mice, lizards, snakes and all other types of creepy things, gross!

The next morning I check the first trap and it has a spider, I was too disturbed to check the other traps, so my mom checked the one behind the dryer. As she walked a way she turned white and started to hyperventalate! She wouldn't tell me what was wrong because she didnt want to upset me and my post pardum hormones. This made me more upset. Finally she said that there was not only a spider on the trap, but a SNAKE too!

So my mom and I are huddled in a corner far from the snake trap freaking out, and Brynne is crying because were upset, we couldn't finish our breakfast because we were too grossed out. We didnt know what to do, but we could not stay in a house with snakes!

I could not believe that not only do I have spiders living in my house around my two babies, I have snakes! How long had a snake been living in my house, are there more snakes, are they poisonous??!!

We heard our landlord pull up outside so we went to see if they had someone not scared of snakes to get it out of the house! It was the landlord Peggy and friend Anna back from a bike ride. We tell them about the snake, and now the landlord is also freaking out because there are spiders and snakes in her house! Peggy has to hurry to get to work, so Anna saids she will come down and look at it for us. She starts poking at it with our tennis racket, and she decides its dead and that its most likely a water snake. So she grabs the snake (I couldn't be in the same room) and she saids that its really stiff. She brings it out into full light were she can figure out what kind it is and finds that it is a very life like looking plastic fake snake.


If you know of any good way to get this man back, let me know. So far he has got peppercorns in his muffin, but that is nothing compared to what he did. I need justice!

That was the single funniest story I have heard all year, sorry it was at your expense! I think you should brush it off and play sweet for a while, the opportunity will present it itself. Or make home believe you are prgegnant with twins in a couple months for a few days!

No Way!!!! I was on the edge of my seat that whole time!!! I couldn't believe it. I was grossed out! Now I'm still laughing, so hard I'm almost crying. Well, thanks for the good laugh Taylor. I wish I knew any good pranks to get him back (that was just too good), but I don't. Good luck. Boy, he's going to deserve what he gets!
