My youngest son called from school and said he might move home because of a spider. Yes, apparently there was a Wolf spider in his bedding. So I googled it and found too many details.  He had a plan: either sleep on the couch until the first freeze or move back home. That last sentence tells you how much he fears this little creature.

Neither was an option since we were paying rent for his basement bedroom (with egress). #realtormom

Thankfully, one of his roommate’s moms was in town and she helped Evan vacuum the entire area, washed his sheets, and purchased bug spray. Evan’s reaction to a spider was similar to my sideyard phobia.

Apparently, there was a hole in the wall which gave the spider safe passage to a rental house filled with empty pizza boxes and Gatorade. #wink

The hole in the wall is now covered with duct tape. ;0)
