Oh my goodness. I feel sick... I can hardly write this post without being utterly disgusted and freaked out!
Below is the nasty creature I found on Lydia's bedroom wall!
One thing I have never been to fond about out here in Kentucky is the life size bugs they have!
They freak me out. Ok, so I already have a fear of spiders..but I can eventually smash, vacuum or get them out of my sight sooner than later.
When I saw this I just about DIED!
I literally started wimpering and sweating bullets. I didn't know how in the world I was going to get rid of this incredibly ugly thing.
On the other hand I had NO IDEA what it was???!!
So not knowing what it was or if it was poisonous (spelling?) or not made the situation that much more scary.
It was huge and had a million disgusting spider legs, having the ones closest to it's ends a lot larger and bulkier than the rest..yuck yuck yuck!
The worst part though is when I was trying to come at it with a cup it sprang up on all legs and curled itself up like a hissing scorpion!
OH MY GOSH I WAS DYING!
So I realized I had to call in reinforcements because there was NO WAY I was going to be able to get this monster withough completetly losing it.
Longer story short, two of my really good friends, lauren and Cherie, that fortunately don't live that far from me came over in an instant and helped calm my nerves. Although one said it looked like a brown recluse (spelling?) !! Ya, that was not great news to hear.
In the end one of the maintenance workers for our apartment had to come get it and thank goodness he did because I'm sure it would've taken us quite awhile to get up the courage to kill that thing.
Sorry for the pics of this nasty thing, I can't even look at them or else I start freaking out. Oh and the guy said it was a millipede and that it was not poisonous...I don't know about you but I hope I never encounter a millipede again if that's what they look like. Sheesh!
I also have to add that Cherie stayed after and helped me move furniture and vacuum every corner of lydia's room, just to put my mind at rest that there would not be another creature hiding in her room, poor girl. I just feel so blessed to have such wonderful friends who are there for me, even if it is just a giant, disgusting, hissing nasty millipede.
To end on a lighter note though, here is sweet lydia eating her "juthes" as she calls it. We love to make green smoothies and lydia absolutely loves them!
