I definitely experienced one of the tender mercies of the Lord yesterday evening in an experience that still has me freaked out. As I was going to bed last night I was looking forward to having a few minutes to read before going to sleep. As I sat down on the bed, I thought, "I really should change these sheets." Then the little devil on my shoulder said, "No, don't do that! You'll use up all your reading time and will have to go to bed without reading at all!" This battle raged in my head for a minute, but eventually the angel won, and I decided to change the sheets. As I was taking off the fitted sheet, an enormous black spider crawled out from the head of the bed right onto where my pillow would have been. I screamed for Brigham (who came running, thinking that Jacob had stopped breathing or something), and he heroically chased down the nasty arachnid and destroyed it. But just think-- if I hadn't had the thought to change the sheets, that spider would have probably crawled on my head!!!! I still get the heebie-jeebies just thinking about it! I sprayed Raid all over our bed legs and on the baseboards by the bed, but I still can't close my eyes without seeing black, hairy legs!

yucky. Nasty shmasty. Steve says we have quite the spider infestation in our garage right now. Only 4 more days until we get sprayed for spiders!!

Brigham, maybe you better shave your legs for awhile! Good thing CK isn't moving in with Cambrie. But knowing Cambrie, those spiders days at her house are numbered!!
