The Creepy Spider...

Hello everyone! Thanks so much for the birthday wishes and birthday presents! I have 100 followers now! Thank you Susanna Leonard Hill for becoming my 100th follower! I had a really awesome first day of being fifteen! Here's kinda how it went...


First of all my sister found a really creepy looking spider in the morning. She was on the phone with my grandma and she called my mom into the other room. Me and Ryan (I told you about my little brother, right?) followed along and took a look at the creepy looking long legged spider.
Now I'm very supportive of all life and I really didn't want the poor spider to die on my birthday! Ryan and I kept arguing for mom to take the spider outside (we were too scared to do it ourselves). So mom decided that she would be good and take the spider outside. She grabbed a notebook while Ryan and I stood at the door, preparing to open it. Our hearts were racing, all of us hoping that the spider wouldn't fall of and get on any of us.


Suddenly, I looked at my mom and she looked at the notebook. The spider was gone. With lightning speed, she tossed the notebook on the floor and it landed with a thud. Still no spider. My mom stared at the notebook on the floor for another moment. That's when Alyssa screamed and pointed to moms pant-leg. Mom screamed too and ran toward Ryan and I and we both ran away not wanting the spider to get on any of us!


Finally when we were all sure that the spider wasn't on anyone, we stopped running around and started cracking up. I think that was the best part of the day!


After all that craziness, I wrote and did some school work then went skating and landed a few axles! Then we went to my violin lesson and at the end of the day, we all got together and drove to a sushi restaurant. Now I know not everyone likes sushi, but to me nothing could have lived up to that birthday present!


And, even though this isn't exactly relevant to what we've been talking about, we have just confirmed that we will be moving to Seattle, Washington! And we are leaving very soon (within the next few weeks) so I probably won't have as much time to post. Anyway, have a great weekend!

P.S.
We never did find the spider...

Oh, I missed your birthday! I'm sorry - happy belated birthday! I wonder where that spider got to? Maybe it's a good thing that you're moving, lol!

So exciting!

Shiraz Akhtar said...

That's a fun day, with a happy family all together. Bravo to the spider... lol. Have a great weekend!

LOL! I HATE spiders! Just thinking about them make me shiver! :) I always make my hubby get them for me. I'm too big of a chicken. ;)

I caught a large black widow in a glass jar and kept it for a day. Then I let it go in a field out back.

Jess said...

Talli~ Thanks and yeah, that spider was pretty big... Haha :)

Shiraz~ Thanks, you too!

Chantele~ Same! I'm so scared of them but I still don't like to kill them (probably because I'm too scared to get close enough to kill it!)

Michael~ Ahh! I couldn't do that! *shiver*

Jessica, first of all, Happy Birthday! You are so young and so talented. I really enjoy reading your posts. I know that you already have one of these awards, but I'd like to nominate you for the other. My link is: http://sherilswift.blogspot.com/2011/09/blogger-awards.html ; )

Happy Birthday and welcome to the Pacific Northwest! Unfortunately there are a lot of spiders here, but otherwise it's pretty great :-)

Mel Corbett said...

Happy birthday (okay I know a few days late, but eh, trying here).

Glad you opted to not kill the spider, they are awesome for eating the other bugs.

Also, I have awarded you with the versatile blogger award, which it looks like you may already have from the comments. If that's the case, no worries. You don't have to pass it on. :-)
