Attack of the Giant Moth


Wasn't last nights rain great!! I love summer rain, when it's cooler and the sun is still in the clouds but it's raining. That could happen just slightly more often here in my opinion but I'll take what ever we get.

We had the back door open to enjoy the air and the rain sounds and this giant giant moth flies into our house. It's the size of a small bird and just huge. (almost as big as the one in the picture above) Andy goes at the moth with a huge pillow swinging at it wildly through the air and knocking down a candle ornament on the wall. I was more grateful for the effort so no problem about the broken ornament, honey :). I get the broom and this giant insect is in our entry way and Andy and I are both swinging at it with our weapons of choice. So some how, my hair looked like a nice landing place for this disgusting insect and it lands on me!!!

I don't realize until Andy tells me to stop moving cause it's on my head! I then do the royal girl shrieking sound and start jumping up and down screaming at the top of my lungs to get it off!! My husband is laughing during this entire episode and not killing this insect as he is enjoying such a girl reaction. Boys will be boys and girls will be girls :)
