Designing for a client today with a ridiculously long company name. Made me think of this:

I want this:
So that next time I run into this:
I don’t have to get close to it. EEEK!
Brad wasn’t even home. He had a client meeting up in Charleston. I didn’t know if I could handle this guy! He was HUGE!!! My first thought was mouse when I walked by the shower in my groggy state. I certainly woke up quick! After hyperventalating (I HATE spiders) I debated back and forth for 20 minutes about what to do. I knew I had to kill him. Trying to figure out how to catch him and put him outside was out of the question. And if I left him alone he would probably carry Ezra or Kenzie off while they were napping. That’s how big he was. It took several smashings and he was still alive! Our shower drain has extra large holes and I thought I could wash his mangled spidery corpse down the drain, but he didn’t even come close to fitting! I get shivers just thinking about it! Ick!
But wait! The story doesn’t end there. As a lovely parting gift this spider left us… hundreds of offspring! We stayed up late last night killing spider after spider after spider. We went to bed with some major skin crawling. Big time heebie jeebies.
And while I’m at it I may as well share another creepy crawly story from a couple of months ago. After drying off after a shower and I went to hang my towel up and discovered what? A big ol’ spider on my towel! Big time violation!! So not cool! This eight legged pervert was a fraction of the size of the spider pictured, but still Way, way too close for comfort.
*Post Edit: The spider didn’t release it’s offspring when I smashed it. (Although that did happen to my mom one time. Gross!!) No, the egg sack was left in my little boys room. Lovely. Here we are trying to read our scriptures before bed when we notice hundreds of tiny spiders jumping around us. Luckily they were small or I might have passed out.

I know that I have several liberal friends so I apologize in advance if any of you have seen and/or liked this movie.
Check out this article. I just want to shout “Hooray for Ukraine!!!” They stood up for what they believe in and are holding themselves to a higher moral standard. I wish the rest of the world would follow their example. I can’t believe this horribly filthy movie has reached the top of the box office in so many countries. It’s a sad reflection of the current state morality. It’s such a shame. I really like the ministry’s statement in the third paragraph: Bruno is an “artistically unjustified exhibition of … behavior which could damage the moral upbringing of our citizens.” I couldn’t agree more! It’s so important to be careful what we put in our minds. “The thought is father to the deed and exposure can lead to acting out what is nurtured in the mind.” Call me a prude. I don’t care. Because it’s true: You are what you think.
Be choosey about the movies and tv shows you watch and the music you listen to. If you wouldn’t show a child something, why is it worth it to watch it yourself? I’m not saying watch Sesame Street all day, but I am wondering why people think it’s okay to view trash because they are a “grown up”. Don’t try to justify it by saying “Who am I hurting?” (YOURSELF!!) or by saying “It’s a good movie except for…” That’s why I like this:
Also, if you want more clean entertainment to be available, then support PG movies when they come out. Two recent ones that are worth checking out are Confessions of a Shopaholic and New in Town. I liked them both. Especially Shopaholic. I laughed out loud a few times Go rent/buy it!

Okay. I know this is gross, but it is just too weird not to post about. You know how in the summer the occasional fly comes in the house when the door gets opened? It happens every once in a while when we let Kenzie in from outside, but we can usually shoo them back outside. When we got up this morning we had several flies in the kitchen. One is rare. Two is unusual. Five is just crazy! My house is clean and there are no points of entry for them to get in on their own. I don’t know how they got in! I don’t happen to own a fly swatter so I didn’t have a game plan for getting rid of these guys. I just hoped that they would leave with Kenzie or die of old age in a day or two so I left them alone. Then they started intruding. First with breakfast, then just started buzz bombing us. So I decided to put out a trap. You know the saying “You catch more flies with honey than vinegar” ? That’s a load of crap. I put out a little bit of honey on a plate to try and trap them. Didn’t work. In fact, they started multiplying. No joke! When a few of them started swarming Ezra while he was trying to ride his car (he was swatting at them like crazy) I’d had enough. They were going down! I grabbed the Windex and went on the attack. One. Two. Three. Four. Five. They were dropping like flies! Six. Seven. Eight. I was right about them multiplying! Was there some sort of cloning device in my house somewhere?? The fly body count ended up reaching into the mid twenties! What the heck? ICK! Well, they’re all gone. I’ll let you know if this freakish fly anomaly occurs tomorrow!

We like Raisin Bran. (Actually we prefer Post brand, but lately it’s been out of stock at Walmart.) Anyway, it was on a major sale this week! So much to Brad’s embarrassment, I cleared the shelf and put all of them in my cart.
Brad: “Everyone’s staring!”
Me: “No one cares what’s in our cart.”
Brad: “It’s the purple. It draws the eye right in. See? Even Ezra can’t stop staring.” (This was true.)
Well, we made it home just fine and the boys have already made it through two boxes. Plus, as an added bonus we get three free dvds! Score!
