A large furry friend.
Hello there, Mr Spider!
Did you come to play?
Yikes, he moves so quick!
Big eyes when he comes too close.
Will he crawl on me?
My little boys think he's cool!
Mommy's not so sure!
Of course, there's this guy.
Lives in our aquarium.
A big wolf spider.
What about this one?
Tarantula? Wolf spider?
I am not sure which!
I love Arizona living, except for the creepy crawlers that share our land. What's a mom to do? This is my buggy life. We found all three of these eight-legged friends in our yard this week!
I remember in graduate school, I had some little tiny bugs in my apartment in San Francisco from construction going on in the neighborhood. I called the owner several times and I was freaking out... If only I knew then what I know now, those bugs were nothing. All these spiders are probably some kind of bad karma due to me driving my landlord crazy!
I try not to analyze it too much, or think about what else might be out there...
