The heeby-geebies

Today Brittney and I got a TON done on the house.  We organized both the storage rooms downstairs and found homes for the majority of the junk in the big downstairs room.  I only have 4 boxes left in my bedroom and maybe 5-6 boxes upstairs and 8-ish boxes downstairs to go.  And the kitchen.  But I can’t go forward on that until I get the hutch, which should be delivered on Monday, I believe.  I hope it fits where I want it to fit in the kitchen, otherwise I’m going to have to rearrange.

Anyway, as we were reorganizing, I picked up the plastic container the dog food was in and this NASTY thing crawled out from under it.

I got this off of the web, because there is no way in hell I was letting that thing crawl around while I grabbed the camera.  I told (maybe it was closer to “screamed at”) Brittney to pick up Abbie while I ran for a shoe.  Ew.  Ew.  EW!!  Do I feel things crawling on me as we speak?  Yes.  Am I most likely going to have nightmares about the stupid thing?  Probably.  I.  Hate.  Bugs.  And I hate bugs even more when they’re in my house.  Yuck.  Where is my husband when I need him?  By the way, if you’re wondering, it’s a house centipede.  Ew.

Today I cooked for the first time since Mark left.  It’s not nearly as much fun cooking for one (and a half), so usually when he’s gone I live on toast and cereal (and Oreos, who am I kidding?).  But tonight I got a steak out of the freezer, and made beans and new potatoes.  By the way, Abbie loves steak.  She’s my little carnivore.  The little turd didn’t want to take a nap today, but after the 3rd try and 20 mins of her screaming, she finally fell asleep for 45 mins.  Hopefully she’ll sleep through the night.

I still feel things crawling on me.  Gross.

That is too funny that she is such a little carnivore! Ellie LOVES bacon. Good thing my mother-in-law gets it for her because I really don't make it all that much!

Of all the bugs I HATE centipedes and milipedes. So that pic you posted definitely gave me the heebie jeebies!

I am glad that you at least get to talk to Mark a little bit. I bet you are so excited to see him. I bet Abbie will be adorable when she first sees him! (But really when is she not?). Oh and I like the new layout!
