Today I Fought the Monsters Under My Bed.

Spiders count as monsters, right?

I go back and forth as to whether I should use the space under our bed for storage.  I just really like to get the most out of every square inch, if I can.  But, those storage buckets make for wonderful spider web frames (especially with all the items that get randomly lost under there).  Not to mention the bit of a pain it is to pull everything out during cleaning.

But that is what I did today and I'm happy to report that there are no more dust bunnies or arachnids hanging out under my sleeping space anymore!  It was not a pleasant chore, but I don't have a ginormous belly to use as an excuse anymore, so it had to be done.

I don't really have anything else earth shaking to blog about.  My days have been full of the little things.  My favorite was probably when  I busted out a pint of strawberries for snack time, this afternoon, and hand fed them to Ash and Britt (to save their clothes and avoid any messy clean-up).  After we'd eaten every last one, Ash wrapped her arms around my knees, hugged my legs and said, "Thank you, Mama."  **warmed up heart**  I love her spontaneous gratitude.

Oh, and that town home I had my heart set on in Idaho?  Gone.

Yup, spiders = monsters. *nods head*

I'm sorry to hear about the house but keep on looking - there's bound to be one that you will love even more out there in Idaho. :)

Why did I smell strawberries when I read this? Weird. And yum. I bet the strawberries up there are a bazillion times better than the ones we get down here.

I HATE spiders!!! Yuck. Shudder. Ewww. Glad you didn't have to battle any.

I love spontaneous gratitudes, too, and any show of affection like kugs and kisses, except with my 5-year old who seems to only give it to me when he is in trouble. LOL!

I am glad all is well at your end!

I hear you about the space under the bed. I have 3 storage boxes under my bed and they are a pain to pull out when I need to clean. I probably should just get rid of the junk I have stored.

So sorry the house you wanted is gone. POOP!!

You'll get a good place to live!

I'd be thanking you if you hand fed me strawberries to. HA HA She's so cute!

I store stuff under my bed. My daughter has discovered that & started messing up all my organized things (boxes of photos & old cards).
