Apparently I went MIA for a while... sorry about that! Things have been so crazy around here with school work kickin my butt (accounting and me do NOT get along)!! Also, I got into this whole crazy "save money using coupons" thing...and that takes up a lot of time, but it is so worth it. I won't get into all of that on here because I'm about to start up another blog, or section, or whatever you bloggers call it, to share my coupon stories, tips, advice, blah, blah, and blah. It might sound boring, or even dumb to some of you, but trust me, when you walk out of the store spending $5 on $83 worth of groceries, you'll be running for your car feeling like you just robbed the place! It's awesome! So, get ahead and tune in to my other blog when you see it up and running. Hopefully I will talk my lazy butt into actually keeping it updated, UNLIKE this one! I really did plan on writing in here everyday, and well, we see how that worked out! So..hmm....what's new and interesting and random with me... Oooooh, I faced a fear of mine!!! So here's how it all went down. I keep my house clean, and even with that, we live in an older, small house... so tend to have a spider or bug here and there. WELL, bug doesn't even justify what we dealt with this past week. If I wasn't so chickenshit, I would have taken a pic and I'm sure you would have almost shit yourself like I almost did! Ok, wondering off the story here...so my husband and I decided to trade rooms. Our room was the smaller of the two rooms in the house, so we decided to take over the other room. Well, once we do this...same night, I see a freakin roach run across the window sill! WTF?!?!?!?!?!?! I freak the hell out, jump out of bed (oh yes, did I mention I was in bed, it was dark, and SOMEHOW I still saw this thing?) and go running and screaming across the room. Ok, longer story short, we saw them for 2 days... and lets just say I didn't sleep for 2 days! We finally went out and bought some stuff to spray in and outside. That's fine and dandy for keeping them out, but what about the one that I KNOW lives in my desk???? So a couple days later I'm laying on the couch watching tv and all the sudden this freakin roach...and oh, did I mention it's like half the size of my hand??? Those water bug roaches or whatever... ok, just wanted to add that because I swear to you he was freakin huge and I'm not just saying that... ok, so anyway, the roach starts walking out of our room into the living room. Of course, I go to screaming! My husband starts screaming at me for being so scared (he was really just mad at me because now he (who is also scared of bugs) had to kill it). He jumps in, grabs the fly swatter (yes, it was hanging in our room because it made me feel a little better about sleeping lol) and he swings...and misses! Ahhhhh! Nooooo!!!! He gets mad, and walks out. WTF AM I SUPPOSED TO DO??? I say screw it and go sit back on the couch. A few minutes later I see the roach walk across the doorway... I jump up, run in the bedroom, and grab the fly swatter. Ok, imagine this in your head because it was great... I have the fly swatter in my hand, a freakin HUGE roach right in front of me walking away...I am shaking and my whole body is covered in chill bumps (thats how bad i hate bugs).. I'm jumping up and down so the roach doesnt turn towards me and touch my feet, and screaming at the top of my lungs. As all of this is going on, I SWAT THE ROACH!!!!! Lets just remind you, I do NOT kill bugs...that's how scared of them I am. Well, guess freakin what? I hit him but obviously a fly swatter isn't going to do much to a HUGE roach..so it knocks him on his back. I freak out! Go to hit him again and MISS!!! How do you miss something right in front of you that is lying there helpless on his back and can't move? Well, don't ask me but I did it!!! I swing again, as hard as I can! MISSION COMPLETE!!!! I killed him!!!! :-) Haven't seen one since that day, so hopefully that was the last of them! Man, that story was intense. I almost felt like I was living it again...not good lol. Just to make my story very funny, I truly am a HUGE tomboy!!! How the hell can I be so terrified of a bug? Well, I guess that's it for today! Thanks for listening!!
