Hi Everybody!

Hi Everybody! I don’t have anything good to write about, so this will just be a yammering post. I’m feeling much better so far this week compared with the last couple of weeks. I even felt motivated enough to attack the mess in my room. I think the Hello Kitty stuff really spurred me into feeling better, plus some of the stuff is organization-oriented, so I’m feeling in an organizing mood.

You couldn’t tell it by looking at the trash heap that is my room now, but I used to be a very organized person. Even when I was a little kid, I would rearrange my room and decorate and organize everything. I would place my stuffed animals in rows and give them all names and then take attendance (as if they could get away! hehe). I used to alphabetize all of my books and evenly space all of my hangers and was generally neat. Then I don’t know, I guess when I went insane I got a lot more disorganized. I no longer got straight A’s in school and I slacked off on things a lot more. So, it really makes me feel good to be organized and to organize things. It makes me feel like my old self again.

Well, I’ve got a long ways to go to get my room in tip top shape. I keep hoping that I can get it in near perfect shape, then something always gets in the way, like I become unmotivated or school starts or something else happens. I am hoping to get mostly organized before school starts again on the 24th, because I want to be able to come home to a clean room where I can actually get some studying done! Right now my desk is piled with junk. Well, I have several desks and they are all piled with junk. It is going to take some doing, but now that I have made a dent I am feeling more hopeful about the situation.

Gosh, this must be like the most boring blog ever! Well, I think I’ll have to end up getting some boxes to put stuff in and I really need to clean out my file cabinet too. I have phone bills and rent stubs and credit card bills from like eight years ago in there! Yikes! I definitely don’t need those now, do I? No!

One thing that is really bothering me is that I keep finding spiders in my room. I know there are places where they can get in and it just freaks me out! I found like three today alone! I am soooo afraid of spiders too. I’m hoping if I really clean up everything they won’t like it in my room anymore. Still, I’m sure they are crawling all around behind my books and everything! AHHHHHH! I smashed a giant one with my shoe today. It was so disgusting. I can’t even stand killing them, because it totally creeps me out, but I did it. I know they are crawling in here because of the weather. They will be gone in the winter, but it makes my skin crawl and then I feel like spiders are always crawling on me, even when they aren’t!!!


Anyway, I’m going to be cleaning, so I won’t have us much time to be slogging and posting stuff here. Haha. I say that now, but I’m sure I’ll be here wasting my time soon enough! Sorry for the boring post. I’ll try to think of something more exciting later. Please do a spider dance for me and help me drive the spiders out of my room!!! Thanks!

    Im terrified of spiders myself…My home is fairly neat and organized, yet I have heard that it’s a bad year for spiders…yuck!
    One morning I woke up and I saw this monstrous black spider sitting next to my coffee cup in the kitchen. I thought that Len was playing a trick on me, that he left a rubber spider on my counter. All of a sudden, realization hits that this is real, and no joke.
    I grabbed at it with a paper towel, and it ran behind my stove. Like hurculese, those people whose adrenaline rush allows them to commit great feats of strenght, I yarded my stove out, and noticed that this very same spider had built a nest of eggs….about fifteen or twenty spider eggs all the way upside my wall behind the oven. I squished the spider and cleaned behind my stove….it’s just a lucky thing that I discovered it in time. A little longer, and my home would have become arachnophobia!
    A couple of weeks later, I get up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. I turn on the light, and I see something massive….the size of my palm, really, brown, ugly, hairy staring at me.
    this is the gross part…..I grabbed some TP to catch it, when I do, I accidentally impale it with my index finger!!!! Yuck! spider guts all over my finger and my bathroom baseboard!
    Unfortunately, that last incident has scarred me for life. I refuse to use my index finger related to anything with food. It is my right index, however I can’t bring myself to cook or eat using that particular finger.
    This happened within a month of each other. I get tonnes of spiders on my balcony because of massive oak trees right in front of me. I constantly evict them with my broom, but there always seems to be more
    I hope I didn’t gross you out. Those were my most horrible spider stories for this year…
    Hugs, Jennie

  2. Jennie! That totally grossed me out! haha. Just kidding. Yah, I’m glad you didn’t get eaten alive by those spiders! Yikes!!! Thanks for sharing always! :) hugs, kristin
