So last night I fell asleep on the bean bag with Danielle while I was watching a movie and around 1 or 1:30 my finger and a spot on my arm really started to hurt. My first thought was spider bite (I'm a worry wart about spiders). Anyway, so I move all the blankets around and don't find one so I go check my finger and arm out in the bathroom and the spots are red and swollen (and they are just painful!) so I go back and decide to check the blankets one more time. This time when I star shaking the baby blanket that was on Danielle a spider fell off of it! :( I killed the sucker and put him in a glass so I could look at him later and the spent an hour and a half online trying to figure out if I was going to die or not :P I really hate spiders. So, anyway, not suppose to be a recluse cuz they're not suppose to be in this area (didn't really look like one either), definitely not a black widow, doesn't look like a wolf spider, and doesn't really look like a hobo either. So, I'm not sure what type of spider it is. I'm going to try and find a place here in town to go have it identified. But I found several sites that said to wash the bite spot and then to put an antibacterial cream on it and to take tylenol or advil if needed and then to keep an eye on it and if it gets worse to go see a doctor. So, I washed it, put some antibacterial cream on it and went to bed. This morning there is just a small red spot left on my finger and I can't see anything on my arm so I think I'm good. But OW! And I'm so thankful that it didn't bite Danielle. (and I checked her and rechecked her a couple of times to make sure!)
Oh and we are back from our trip and had a wonderful time for the most part! I'm in the process of typing up a huge long thing all about it so that will be soon to come! (I hope!) And hopefully I'll have some pictures to put up with it!!!
