Feeling like CRAP

Man! I wish I felt better. Even blasting Josh on the way in to work this morning didn't do the trick. Our boss came in with a nasty cold and somehow, I was the one that got it. I gave blood yesterday and probably shouldn't have since I wasn't feeling well. I think I might be at the peak of this thing and hopefully will start to feel better.

So Cameron choked the cat (Winslow) last night. I went into his room to make sure he was in bed and he had the cat pinned on the floor with his hands around his neck! What is THAT all about???? He and that cat are best buds. The cat was actually choking!

I was so shocked to see it that I scared Cameron half to death with my reaction. I was shaking I was so upset. Why do kids do things like that? Is it curiousity? He got into a heap of trouble for it though, so I'm almost positive he won't do it again. We still need to watch him around the cat for awhile though.

Never in a million years would I think I could do this, but I did! I HELD IN MY HANDS A TARANTULA! We went over to my sister-in-law's house for Thanksgiving and her step-son has 3 of them (one fully grown and two babies). I guess the glass of wine I had emboldened me, so I said, WHY NOT?

See, spiders freak me out. We have a lot of them in our house because we live in a heavily wooded area. They are everywhere. I typically will leave the room and let someone else deal with it when I see one. So, for me to look at this thing through glass was a miracle of it's own!

He didn't move much other than when he started to rub his legs against his body as a defense mechanism. That releases the tiny hairs (eeeuuuwwwww) and they make you itch. So very cool! There are even pictures; so I have PROOF! :)

Anyway, guess I better get to work.
