In my search for what I’m good at I definitely found something I’m EXTREMELY okay with NOT being good at…
Ewwwww, the very thought is giving me the heeby-jeebies.
So, here’s the story. I live in a desert region. That means some nasty little pests. Black widows, big ants, weird looking bugs and beetles, and this little guy:
A Wolf Spider!!!!
You see, we had my nieces over for a sleepover and I was upstairs getting dinner ready. I asked them to pull out some sleeping pads from the basement storage and the next thing I know they were screaming bloody murder. NO WONDER!!!! They found one of these demon-spawn crawling around on one of the pads.
We all went downstairs and after about 30 minutes of psyching myself up, disposed of the ugly thing.
So, needless to say a couple things happened:
- We burned the pad. A tad dramatic? Maybe. Are we sure we’ll never see that creature or it’s babies again? Definitely!
- We all decided to sleep upstairs. Because we all know spiders can’t climb stairs. Right? Right?! Just say, “Right!”
- We called an exterminator the next day! And a really good one too! Maybe it’s just because they came to the rescue and sprayed and assured us we wouldn’t see any more nasties, but I think they were miracle workers. We haven’t seen another one since!
So, if you live in Southern Utah, I really think you ought to check them out! You can call them at 435-228-7994 or visit their website: http://www.stgpestcontrol.com/
See…it’s okay to be bad at some things!
