A break from my break

I'm taking a break from my blogging break to let you all know that you need to check out the giveaways at 5 minutes for mom! They are giving away a $100 gift certificate to Land's End and a brand new HP Photosmart A626 Photo Printer! Go leave a comment and enter to win.

Since I'm here anyway, I have to tell you what happened yesterday. We were getting in the van and Chloe and Luke both went around to the passenger side to get in. I was putting Audrey in her car seat on the driver's side and went to put the diaper bag down on the floor of the van, and almost set it on...a black widow in a web!

Thank God Chloe and Luke went to the other side because it was right where they put their hands to climb in.

And it was mean! It went right into attack mode when we tried to kill it.

Needless to say, I've been a little twitchy while driving since then!

I would have TOTALLY freaked out! So glad that the kids got in the other side and everything was ok. Makes my skin crawl just thinking about it and makes me happy we don't have scary spiders here in the great white (ok - so it's not white in August, but you get the point!) Canadian north. Hope your break is helping you relax!

OMG!! I would have been so itchy driving around. I probably would have gone to a car wash and told them to do a complete wash and wax and don't forget to vacuum the inside very well.

Scary stuff! We have been dealing with these humongous spiders that keep getting in the house! It just creeps me out to see this mouse size spider run across the hardwood floors while Im trying to enjoy some prime time tv!

that is very scary! My dh, who isn't scared of much, takes black widows very seriously. Thank goodness he's able to kill them.

it's me, Val said...

I took a break also. It was so . . . nice. Hope you're enjoying yours as well.
