okay.. This is a blog about a prob. my parents have... Their house is full of Brown Recluse Spiders. They breed a house for them.. clutter everywhere... 3,000 + sq. foot house, that only 2 ppl live in, only the bottom floor. They live in a house full of 'em. One climbed out of the bathtub drain, into my bathwater last night. Now, you can see one disabled woman move fast out of the bath water, when a big poison spider is swimming towards you.
The last time I visited, 3 huge one fell out of the overflow drain, when the water splashed up by it.
This visit, I came armored with Raid, spider spray, and even sprayed the tubs overflow drain good, and baseboards,and etc. in that b-room.
It is so sad to see my parents live in filth, cluttered house, when it could be so much more. I have flipped out over the BR spiders, and it didn't help, b/c the say I am over reacting! BS
I don't know, if my body could handle a bite from one. I am not scared of spiders, just venonmous ones. I kept the spider's body, that I caught, so I can take it home and ID it in private.
I have set out glue traps before, and in the a.m. it would be covered in fiddle back spiders. My parents blame it on their rock house, that they live in.. BS too there
It is b/c they encourage them to live with them. Half of the house goes unused, and b-rooms, they are always gone/busy, and they hoard everything, and never throw anything away...
Big mess for us 4 kids to deal with, when they both pass.
They are not very old. Just 55 and 56.
I have tried to clean up their house, for them, but it always goes back the same way.
I am scared to death when I sleep, that I may get bit by one, so far no one has... but it is only time...
I came to my parents house, before they had gotten home from work. I went into cleaning mode, and cleaned my mom's kitchen. I found a bag of rotten onions, and 1 unidentified object rotten... Gnats flying everywhere in the kitchen.
it is getting too gross to come and visit. And too dangerous with the BR Spiders. I zip up all our suitcases at night, so they will not crawl into it, and follow us home to live.
I shake out my shoes and clothes all the time.. check the bed covers, before we get into bed.
They do not even scrub their toilet!! Is it age or just they like to live like pigs?? It is so bothering too me. I have tried to change it in my past, but it is unchangable. My sister and husband are bothered by it.. they do not enjoy visiting or staying the night.
For 1 reason they keep their AC on *82 in the summer, I break a sweat typing on the PC. I am being a brat.
Mu mom does have a serious problem... she has kept everyone of our childhood toys... I n the same places we last put them as a child... She is a slave to her material possessions.
Their house is cluttered full of books, CD's,old VHS tapes..old magazines she would read, when she was a SAH mom
Her old Kindergarten teaching supplies.. It goes on and on.
I think, they both keep themselves crazy busy, so they don't have to face the pig sty(sp)
I have 3 more days of being at my dear parents house. My sister and bro. are coming tom. with their kids. I will be total caos..
**My sister says that when they both die, we are just going to light a match to the house.LOL
to be cont.
