Default I have a Confession to make....

I saw something on my bathroom floor a few minutes ago. It looked like it had legs on it, so I snuck (sneaked?) up on it with a wad of toilet paper, and mashed the heck out of that poor little dust bunny!!!!! LOL

My first cup of coffee went down the sink before I got the first sip. DH went to get the paper this morning and a palmetto, a.k.a. love bug, a.k.a flying cockroach hitched a ride on the back of dH's shirt. I swatted at it and it took a dive into my coffee. It met it's demise via fly swatter and so did the cup. Heck of a way to wake up in the morning and I too have snuck up on a few dust bunnies a.k.a. tufts of dog hair and stomped the heck out of them. We have large spiders and that's what they look like often. then we laugh!!

Glad you killed that dust bunny! I had a large jumping spider on the wall this week. I was afraid to get it with a kleenex because I knew it would jump. I didn't want to swat it on my white walk so I used a piece of cardboard to coax it across the wall, around the corner and out the front door!

Since we put in those Ridex electronic wall plug-in units, we have very few "crawly critters" in the house, but when we do, the first thing I do is yell for SO to come get it. I'm fearless tho if I have to take care of dust bunnys

Sandy, we have those electronic wall plug-ins too, so I was surprised to see that thing with "legs" on the floor.....apparently when I swept the other day, I didn't do too good......
