Last night, Matt came home to find an unwanted house guest relaxing on our stairs:
For those of you who do not know, that is a black widow. Although they are not as deadly as as one might think, they can put a human in the hospital for weeks. What I was concerned about is our Charbear - thank GOD she didn't mess with it while she was home alone all day.
Once I got home, I immediately called the exterminator and they came this morning. phew!
On a more comical note - the exterminator told Matt (who stayed home to let him in) that black widows usually come in the house on cardboard boxes that have been sitting outside. GREAT, now he has even more ammo to use against me and my online shopping habit. ha!
