dang spider…

28 May

Day 4 of Spider Watch 2012

i’m pretty sure it’s looking for a way in…

Have I mentioned how much I hate spiders?  Especially these kind – with big fat bodies… and big fat legs… and pinchers… ewww.

I think it’s looking at me

then my dad mentioned it was probably a VERY cozy in this protected space and might just have BABIES! DAAAADDDD!!  How could you put this scary thought in my mind!?  Not to mention, the spider has been very active today – perhaps testing the boundaries of the window like the Raptors in Jurassic Park did?!

Today is also the start of the Runner’s World Summer Running Streak!


Yeah, my running self and the heat don’t really get along very well.  See, the running part of me is much more of a WA girl – and not even Eastern WA – Spokane used to get mighty toasty.  Nope, I’m talking about the mild wilderness of good ol’ Port Angeles, friends.  So, I will be waiting until it cools a little bit to try to crank out a mile or more tonight.

But most importantly on this holiday Monday, I would like to give a huge THANKS! to all of my friends and family who have served our country.  I take it for granted that I can type what I want on this blog, get an education, walk around outside freely – any number of liberties I enjoy on a daily basis because of your sacrifice.

seeing the Statue of Liberty just reinforced my pride to be an American!

    Yuck! That spider is CRAZY!!!! I hate spiders. The thought of spider babies would keep me up at night. I hope that the creepy thing goes away soon. :-(

    EWWW! I am spastic when I see bugs in my presence! I can’t do the challenge because I am trying to follow a Run Faster Run less type of plan. We shall see!

    PS – I nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award. I am SO SO happy to have find your blog via The Book! Your experiences truly inspire me to keep running and get out that door – thank you for that!!

    That spider freaked me out so much that I almost had to throw the computer. LOL I also struggle with the heat when running. I’m hoping to adjust!!
