A close encounter

Yesterday morning as I stepped into the bathroom I experienced a very scary moment that made me leap all the way out of the room in one jump.

On top of the toilet tank was a HUGE cockroach, the size of the flush handle as you can see by the picture.

I ran into the bedroom and woke Todd up to handle disposing of the bug. I'm sure I told him to kill it. I did not want that thing reappearing any time soon. Instead he took it outside and let it go free into the wild that is our yard. He's not too concerned about it returning into our house but I'm no longer going to the bathroom in the dark.

I feel your pain! Sometimes if I tell Jeremiah to kill something, he'll throw it in the backyard too! MEN!!!

On another note, I'm very impressed that you are pregnant AND can leap. That's too funny :o)

YUCK!! I remember when we had one like that in our house, I screamed so loud!

Ugh... If I found that in my bathroom, I would probably leave the room and start crying! =( I have been fortunate enough not to find one of these alive in my home.... but it is probably just a matter of time!
