Now I can't sleep. I know moving to Texas I was going to deal with things Im not used to. Ok fine. Heat- whatever no problem, poisonous everything- ok don't remember being scared of things when I visited. hitting armadillos instead of raccoons(yes I know coons are here but I have yet to see one even dead)- whatever not missing much. Coyotes- grew up in the country dealt with them, no big deal.

What I wasn't expecting is the size of things!! Within a couple months.of moving down here I saw one of those tiny fuzzy black and white spiders the size of a quarter. Well a few weeks ago I went to the bathroom had just sat on the toilet and noticed a wolf spider whose body was the size of my thumb... didnt think I could.cling to the ceiling that fast being 4 monthx pregnant. Now Im totally.used to seeing over sized spiders compared to what I was used to. Well today I went to check on the temperature of the pool cause I was thinking about swimming as I walk in I see this huge spider in the iris leaves, I take a pic send it to df asking if it was one of those garden spiders he was telling me about. His response no its just the shell of a wolf spider. I told him he couldve lied this time. Well I show his parents the pic and they say.its a garden spider. ok no big deal Im fine... they wont chase me. Well I tell df what they said he asks a.few questions. I tell him Ill send him a better pic. Well I go out tbe first.time phone dies. I charge my phone for like 10 minutes go back out to.take a pic and.find a live one underneath, I'm flipping the fuck out and since fil had just pulled in I asked him. He confirms what df said originally. Now.Im seriously flipping out, I know they won't hurt me but I hate spiders!! The only spiders Im cool with are both kinds of daddy.long legs. Now.I cant sleep cause it feels like I have bugs crawling on me!!

Ok.I guess I should say the spider was about 4-5 inches long including legs.

Doesn't the saying go "Everything is big in Texas" and you weren't expecting the SIZE OF THINGS? lol

Well I knew the size of "things" ;) but I wont go that route lol I totally didnt think the bugs would be ginormous compared to up north. Even the fleas are huge, and the cockroaches I've seen, Im rethinking what I knew about bugs.

Not everythings big in texas cause every frog (not toad) I've seen has been smaller than my thumb and I've seen frogs bigger than my hand up north lol.

We did have spiders really bad. You'd be lucky to go a day without seeing a couple spiders inside or even walk into a web but they disappeared when we bombed for fleas thankfully. and atleast they were small enough.I wasnt scared smash them lol

Well I told df I'm fine with tarantulas but that is it, so he thinks its funny to pick random spiders up and come toward me. Im totally fine with the othet bugs, well the cockroaches might eat me. lol I actually had one fly at me, I knocked it off and it came back at me!!

What part of Texas you from?
