my hero.

Last night around 4 in the morning I woke up from a bad dream, and decided to splash some water on my face to cool me off. My eyes barely open, I stumbled into the bathroom and turned on the lights to see two HUGE spiders in our bathtub. We've been in this apartment for almost two years and haven't had any real problems with bugs, so it startled me quite-a-bit. I didn't want to wake gid up by making noise, but I didn't think I would be able to sleep knowing there were two massive eight legged creatures hanging out where I shower.  I grabbed some shampoo and tried to smash the little buggers, but they were too quick! I tried not to, but I had to let out a little squeak. Something about those eight legs gives me the heebie jeebies.

Imagine friends, - me in my pjs, half asleep, and trying to hit these huge fast spiders at 4 in the morning. I hadn't even gone for the second spider when I heard Gideon in an alarmed voice say, "Alyssa? Are you ok?" He opened the bathroom door, alert and ready to save me from any kind of evil. Feeling guilty and a bit embarrassed, I sheepishly apologized for waking him, and explained my reasons for being up at such a strange hour killing spiders in the bathtub. He was relieved, and quickly took care of the situation with toilet paper and bug spray (so much more efficient than an oddly shaped bottle of shampoo). Later today, he said he thought I was being attacked or something in our bathroom. You know when you're just waking up, and you're not quite all there? I think he was maybe in that stage.

Anyway, Gid is my hero. 
Love him, love him, love him. So much.

Have a happy friday, friends!
