I got a big surprise when I looked up at the celing in the bathroom the other day. There was an enormous, thick web, but no spider.
I am NOT afraid of spiders,
(remember this post? http://wronginalltherightways-travcat.blogspot.com/2011/04/creature-in-bathtub.html)
but, just to be on the safe side, I tore out of there like a maniac.
"Has anyone seen a spider in the bathroom?" I asked the kids.
"Oh yeah!" Anastasia replied, "that's our friend Felix. He's really sweet."
Apparently the fanged creature has an entire history with our family that I knew nothing about.
"We have another one named Eloise in the kitchen." Isabella piped up.
I was starting to feel itchy all over.
Eloise and Felix had dinner together last night while I was giving the kids a bath.
I jerked the kids out of the water so fast you would have thought "Jaws" was in the tub.
"Felix and Eloise have to go." I told everyone.
"But Mom, they would never bother us. They know us!" Catherine insisted.
How do you kill friends of the family?
I think I am just going to use the upstairs bathroom for the rest of my life, even though I am NOT afraid of spiders.
