The Good, The Bad, and the UGLY


Last night was movie night with my sister...we went to see Drill Bit Taylor and Leatherheads. My quick take on Drill Bit with Owen Wilson...it was hilarious! We both loved it!! And Leatherheads just couldn't go wrong with three of my favorite actors / actresses...George Clooney <>, Jim Krasinski, and Renee Zellweger. Terrific movie! I usually don't like movies that were filmed way back then, but this one was A-OK!! I'd highly recommend both of them!!

The Bad....

I usually like the season of spring...the sights, the smells. But. This year. We have a problem. A problem unlike one we have ever had in this house before. Big, Huge, Hairy, Spiders. Lots of them. I H A T E spiders! Ok, they are not all big and hairy....we actually have some that are small too. Just tonight. While I'm sitting here typing my blog post. FOUR spiders!! Right here in the kitchen. Crap!! So give me your ideas....people!!!! I need HELP here!!! How on earth do I get rid of these ridiculous spiders???????? I've told my husband we will have to spray all around the perimeter of the house...just like we do up at the cottage. We see alot of spiders there...primarily because we are closer to the water. But, each year, my husband sprays. ALOT. He sprays like twice every single weekend!! And it helps. ALOT. So, guess we'll have to be doin' that here too....before we get infested with the next thing....bees are a real problem here too. Our house is made of Cedar. We have these ridiculous bees that bore HOLES right through the cedar!!

One thing at a time...

Here's the UGLY:

I want to see Leatherheads cause I LOVE George Clooney.

It must be the year of the insects cause we've been fighting ants, teeny, tiny, black ones. I told James if we don't start winning the fight soon I'm calling the exterminator. I think I'd have to be sent away in a straight jacket if I had that many spiders, I'm terrified of them.

There was a spider in our car yesterday, albeit a little one, I was freaking and scaring hubby. :) You can keep your spiders. :)

I? Would literally crap my drawers if I saw one of those things. Seriously. My biggest fear...besiders water...is spiders. I have Mushu though and he eats them when he sees them walking in the basement. But your spiders seem rather large. I don't think even Mushu would eat one of those things!! *shivers*

I hate bug infestations. Spider and bees are bad enough. Our issue is ants. I HATE ANTS!! I live on Sandhills Road. Guess what? Ants like sand!! Who knew?!?!

We had a guy come and spray the first spring we moved here. We think they came in on the wood that we brought and stored in the house. We don't do that now so we don't have an ant problem...in the house.

Hope you get your 'issues' taken care of soon.

I don't like spiders much either. I think snakes eat spiders. You could get one or two of those to roam the house. I guess I am not helping much, am I?
