So I really was hesitant to blog about this . . . because now I feel like our friends and fam will never come visit us again!! . . . but it's just so gosh darn scary and completely unexpected, I just have to!
When Shane was rolling up the hose in the back yard, our hose holder thingy broke . . . bummer. . . . so Shane opened the lid to try to fix it, and found this little bugger. Shane came and got me and said "do you want to see something scary?" . . .
Well there it is! It was almost too crazy to believe! So we went back in and checked on wikipedia to see if it really was a Black Widow . . . . and ugh . . unfortunately, it matched completely.
Soo scary! I was afraid to go to sleep that night!!
Warning:: Spider lovers and environmental protection peepz, do not read any further . . . .
We did dowse the spider in bug spray, and Shane made sure it was in spider heaven by smushing it with a stick.
I am still nervous there are more though! Although, I heard that black widows kill other black widows . . . . so my hope is that the one we killed had already killed all the other ones!
