Don't worry people, this is not a scary spider story!
Last night at about 2:27 AM Jarom freaks out and sits/JUMPS up from bed. It startled me so bad I was WIDE awake. I thought something was wrong for sure. Other wise why would he be so concerned. I got up and asked him what was wrong. He just stares at the floor by the side of the bed. I continue to ask Jarom "what's wrong? are you ok?" He finally gets out the words "I thought I saw a spider". AHHH! I said where? I thought that he felt it on his face or something! EWW! He said that he saw it run across the room! If it was big enough for him to see in the dark and freak out like he did, it had to be BIG! I said "ewww sick you can turn on the light, that's creepy!" So I thought that he would get up and look for the nasty thing! Nope, he said "No, it's ok. I already looked to the side of the bed". Oh ok,, so don't worry folks! It's NOT to the side of the bed so we're all ok! So i try to forget about this big giant spider and try to go to bed. IMPOSSIBLE! I couldn't stop thinking about it crawling across my face or waking up to it right next to me. I was imagining a tarantula type spider. You know, all the scary and irrational things you think about in the middle of the night. I tossed and turned for a good hour until Jarom said "It's ok, I don't think it was anything." Oh yeah Jarom, you're just saying that so i'll go to sleep and leave you alone! So I said how do you know? He told me that the spider that he "thought" he saw was this (holding his hands out to about the size of a football) big. Ha ha ha ha I think he was dreaming or something. I was silly enough to think "Oh my gosh well maybe it wasn't a spider, but it was probably a big nasty rat of some kind if it was that big" Really, steph? Come on! haha Needless to say last night was a sleepless night but I can't stop laughing about it today!
Note to Husbands: NEVER tell your wife that you see a big giant spider. Just take care of it and save her and irrational thinking and fear! Especially in the middle of the night! Ha ha It does make for a good story though!
