Why I didnt sleep so well


This thing was flying around my room last night when I finally got to bed around 1am. Well, maybe not this one in particular, but I'm pretty sure that they are not too distantly related because the resemblance was uncanny. Seriously, about 3" long not including the giant atenaes and mandibles (?). I used to think myself a pretty brave soul when it came to creepy crawleys. Not that I love them, but I take care of business be it with a shoe or a vaccum. Keep my cool. Usually. This guy had me cowering in the doorway. I think I actually threw a shoe in his direction (real effective I know). Sometime after 2am I finally lured it out of my bedroom by very stealthily reaching my arm into the room and turning off the light (brave, I know) and turning on the light in the living room. I then ran like a baby into my room and shut the door. What happened to the creature? I know not. Was I paranoid that it was going to crawl through the crack under my door to the point that I wouldn't turn on the light to find my phone? Yes. Was I paranoid that it was going to attack me as I was showering this morning? You betcha. I am officially a wuss. And cannot live in South America.
To top it all off, I am very sleepy this morning from my late night and fitful flying beetle filled dreams. Only to discoverthis morning that my landlords are selling the house that we are living in (the wonderful, big, beautiful, moderately priced house that we love) and we have 30 days to find a new place. I moved 42 days ago people. 42 days. Tuesdays, Wednesdays break my heart. Friday, I better be in love.

That so stinks!!! Maybe you'll find an even better place. And just think, you are probably de-cluttered already!

THAT DAMN BUG flew in my window 2 nights ago!!! In my REM-induced coma I also threw something at it and promptly shut my windows. DISGUSTING.

Regarding the other topic: 5 moves in 4 years is NOT my cup 'o tea. I don't want to make it 6 times in 4 years. Here we go again...

Can they do that? If you signed a lease, they can't until the lease is up I'm pretty sure. You check on that.

The funny thing about leases is you actually have to have one. The other girls lease had lapsed and we were going to sign a new one, but hadnt gotten around to it as this was totally unforseen. The landlords are funny and make rash decisions apparently. There are a lot of silly details and misunderstandings. We are hopefully working it out. Say a little prayer for us.

PS....cant get enough of your early 90's modeling pic Jess. (Yes, my sister was a model in the 90's. An international one at that).

So sorry about your new house... and the flying bug too. What a bummer! Hope something even better comes along. By the way, I've been trying to reach you. Call me:)

So did this monster have talons?

Sarita said...

Yes he did have Talons. And Matterly, I have been meaning to call you forever. I suck. And keep losing your number (why I dont save it in my phone, I know not).
