Good Morning, Amy

I'm a fan of Charlotte as much as the next person (or Pig) out there, and I know all the good things they do, but unfortunately, spiders this big just don't belong in people's bathrooms.  Especially not when they first wake up in the morning. 

It just goes to show how much I love my husband, and how tired I knew he was, that I did not go running and screaming back into the bedroom and wake him up to save me. 

Instead, I emptied half a can of bug spray onto the poor creature.  I practically asphyxiated myself in the process.  I don't think that much bug spray is supposed to be released in a room that's 8' x 4'. 

I really am not that squeamish, and I don't have a phobia of bugs or spiders.  This picture just doesn't do justice to how large this creature was, with all of its legs extended.  At least four inches diameter, I would guess.

I don't know if I will ever, ever be able to use the bathroom at night with the light off after this.
