Hey blog-readers out there! I just wanted to share a cover of one of my favorite songs of the moment by one of my favorite youtubers of the moment. Her name is Christina Grimmie, and she does a beautiful cover of Jason Mraz's "I Won't Give Up," and the first time I heard her rendition, I had goosebumps (especially around the 3-minute mark).
This song has really been hitting close to home lately. I've learned that here and there, you'll have fights about big things, small things, and everything in between. You'll stand your ground about something really stupid, and solve no problems in return. You will let your temper get the best of you, and say things you wish had never come into your thought process in the first place. Anyway, it's just a song that I've found hits the nail on the head, so to speak, about not giving up through the hard times. And to my fiance, if you're reading this, I love you... very, very much.
Anyway, if you like this, please feel free to pass it along. It's amazing what one song in your day will do.
Lots of love to whoever you readers out there are.
WARNING: If you don't like spiders, you might want to skip this post.
Today I was going to share with you the amazing-ness of my weekend but that will have to wait until tomorrow because I just had to share what is quite possibly the most terrifying moment of my life to date.
Scene: My hair still wet from the shower, I'm gathering some laundry and folding them in the kitchen. Weird i know. Anyways, my dogs start barking to go outside and i opened the back door.
I'm walking around mindlessly outside, waiting for them to do their deed, when I see it out of the corner of my eye.
But it couldn't be... could it? something *that* big cannot possibly be a spider... right? That has to be something else. I slowly inch my way towards it and I count... 1, 2, 3, 4... 7, 8 longer than life legs... I break out in a sweat.
As i rush to let my dogs in...the spider decides to head straight for my kitchen. And it just stops...between the door and me. Keep in mind that i'm still outside but not wanting to go anywhere near the OPEN (i might add) door.
I somehow manage to jump over the spider as it comes INSIDE and starts crawling on my wall. At that point i'm freaking out.
"HolyShitWhereIsMyFianceWhenINeedHimToAttackTheEnemyWithHisBoots. Calm down, Steph it's just a spider... larger than an infants fist. eff you uncle sam, this is all your fault. I really need to take a picture, no one is going to believe me. This is SO going on my blog. Oh my god I have nothing to kill this thing with. I'm barefoot... it's sensing weakness... where ARE all my shoes?!"
I then proceeded to (1) take a picture, (2) find a shoe that I didn't care for but sturdy enough to kill the damn thing with one blow, and one blow only.
I got on a chair in my kitchen, never taking my eyes off the spider and stroke - somehow the thing flew off the wall and I screamed bloody murder, I'm honestly surprised the cops didn't show up after I screamed but anyway, I got off the chair. The spider laid on my dining room floor, dead but I still hit it a few more times with my shoe while saying "ew, ew, ew" the entire time. Gloves on (kid you not) I picked it up with a paper towel and took it straight outside in a bag. Victory!
Now I cannot stop searching every where in case one of these things sneaks up on me again. I do NOT do spiders people. I just don't. So I ask one thing, spiders please stay away until my fiance comes back and he can deal with you all on his own, pretty please? Thanks... One heart attack is enough.
