What a morning!!

So I had to share this because I had quite the morning!! I had to get up early to be at school early because of testing. I felt like it was the first day of school, I was so nervous. I jumped right out of bed (which is unbelievably unusual - I usually hit the snooze about 10 times!) and got to the bathroom, grabbed the towel off the back of my bathroom door, and guess what comes crawling down my door out of my towel? A. Nasty. Roach. UGH! I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE roaches! Did I say hate? Cuz I HATE them!! I can do spiders all day long but roaches completely creep me out. I have been known to climb up on top of tables and couches to get away from roaches. Ugh, they gross me out.

Anyways, back to my story. After chasing the darn roach around my whole bathroom with a shoe (they run fast and can ball up and squeeze through anything!), I finally killed it. Now, normally I leave the smashed roach for my boyfriend or someone else to clean up but obviously I was by myself so I had to do it. So, I got a HUGE wad of toilet paper and scooped it up and down the toilet it went. I felt on top of the world. What a woman! :)

I took a shower, got out and went to the kitchen to eat breakfast. There were no clean bowls in the cabinet, so I opened the dishwasher to grab a clean bowl and what comes running out? A FREAKING ROACH!!!!!!! 2 in a matter of about 10 minutes! I literally shouted out, What the crap!?? It crawled all up in the dishwasher so I got the RAID out and killed that nasty beast! Again, I couldn't leave it so I maned up and got a huge wad of paper towels and scooped it up. Gosh I am one awesome roach killer!!

Kathleen - 2, Roaches - 0

Let me remind you that we started testing today and I was trying to get there early! I just knew that this was going to throw off my whole morning which you all know means that your whole day is thrown off and sucks. I was so nervous that this was a foreshadowing to something going wrong during testing. Thankfully, testing went well and my day was alright other than the kids being super hyper after testing!

I just had to share this near death experience I had with roaches this morning. Good thing I made it out alive to tell.

Thankfully, my apartment is spraying because we NEVER see roaches, it is very RARE!

I am running my next 5k Saturday - proceeds go towards Ty church's missions. :) I'm excited! Wish me luck!
