Terrifying Spider Time

I know Halloween was a couple of days ago, but I wanted to share this experience with you anyway.

We discovered this monster Halloween night, when our front porch light went out. Nate was trying to change the bulb when this beast came out of no where. He yelled, "Come see this spider!"

Thinking it was just one of the big black spiders that are common in our yard, I took my time getting out of bed to take a look.

When I saw the mother of all spiders I've ever yelled and tried to keep my gaping mouth shut. Ugh. The thing is a nightmare.

We haven't seen the spider in the last two days. I was kind of hoping to see it again, just so I could get a better photo. also, it would be nice to know that it didn't somehow get inside the house.

I don't know what I would do if I found this thing in my house. I think I would just move. Just pack up what I could and leave. This is not a spider you just step on. I don't even want to imagine the sounds this thing would make if you stepped on it. Ugh. Ugh. Ugh.

Well, have a good day! :D

We have a lot of those in in San Diego this time of year. They look so scary and dangerous but are actually really beneficial. Perfect Halloween decoration!
