Fright Night

Isn't funny how we all have our little idiosyncrasies about us? You know those little quirks that seem funny or maybe even annoying to others? I know I have several of which one my Husband apparently thinks is funny even when his poor wife is down and out with a case of the shingles (am I laying it on thick enough for you?).

The other night there I was in my misery, ok well maybe not that much misery but it sounded good. The girl's and I had just finished watching our girlie shows and I was doing my usual "walk around" making sure lights were off, doors locked, etc. Well, upon locking the front door I glanced over to the corner and noticed that somehow a frog had gotten in and I don't mean one of those cute little green ones that I can deal with, this was a junior toad that just sat there staring at me almost daring me to take a step toward him. You see, I am a total wimp when it comes to most insects, frogs, etc. I'm quite rational about it really, if I see one I just run the other way. Hey, I believe that God had a purpose for the creation of all animals, I'm just a little questionable on a few. Well, I immediately started to call for John to get over there. After what I felt was a completely unacceptable length of time he finally strolled over. By that time the girls curiosity had gotten the best of them and they wanted to find out what the fuss was about. It was about that time that my loving Hubby picked up that still unknowing reason for being made frog and started chasing us with it. That's right, he thought that it would be a good thing to chase his ailing wife around the living room. All I can say is motherly love flew right out the window, that's right I'll be the first to admit that I used both girls as shields and threw them right in the path of the oncoming amphibious attack! Hopefuly they'll forgive me in time to see them in their graduation gowns a few years from now! Needless to say my Hubby was mud all weekend long but was the hero to the boys. Now I have to watch out for whatever attack they're planning next. I wonder if they make toad repellent?
