Something that scares me - spiders.  I hate them.  When we lived in our first house, it was built on a slab.  The spiders would come in the house at night when my husband was at work and our kids were little.(no one available to kill them!)  He would come home to find over turned glasses or bowls in the living room trapping a spider that he needed to kill.  I also used to lift the edges and spray Windex on them!  

Did you learn anything about me?


  1. Hi Ann,
    I am cracking up about the spiders, because that is something I do. I won't squish them, that grosses me out.

    Autumn blessings,

  2. Love it Ann....I didn't mind spiders so much till I met the ones in those were ones of a different color (size and temperament!!) YIKES....Have a blessed Sunday...Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  3. I learned lots about you! I hate spiders - I can smack them with my shoe, but can't step on them - does that make any sense? Don't know what it is - maybe the fear that I will miss and they will jump on me and run up my leg?

  4. Ann, What a great idea for your post. Yes, I learned several things about you and found it very interesting...and I hate spiders, too. After I hit one with whatever I can find, I run away!!

  5. Ann, thanks for sharing! Love to get to know everyone better!!! OLM
