Bug Issues

I woke up at 5:30am this morning to a large buggy flapping sound skimming by my head...it startled me out of a complete deep sleep.

My surprise didn't seem to affect J much so rather than wake him up too, I just moved my pillow closer to the end of the bed and then tried to go back to sleep (even though I knew I would never sleep with a bug in our room). A few seconds later, I hear it again only now it is close to J. I fly up out of the bed. J freaks out because he hears me startled and I tell him that I heard it again and it was near him.

He turns on the light, and there is this 2 inch long beetle-like bug on the floor near his head. He grabs a tissue, tracks it down and squishes it. I heard the crack of its body when he killed it.

I relax, straighten the sheets and lay back down. I am just about back to sleep and I hear the wings of some other bug in the room....I try to ignore it (thinking my mind is playing tricks and it just the sound from the ceiling fan). A few minutes more, I hear it again. I grab my socks, my pillow and start to head out.

J wakes up and asks me what I am doing. I tell him that I hear another bug near my window and I am not sleeping in a bug room. I grab a sheet out of the linen closet and hit the couch for the rest of the night. Didn't get much sleep there either after being totally awake, so now my head hurts, my eyes are dry and my stomach is growling. I have to drive to my not favorite place today to do some grocery shopping now that our refrigerator is working again...what a great start I am getting.

Looked for second Mr Bug this morning when I came back in and it was just a moth. Oh well, I couldn't take any more buggy flapping last night.

I would have done the same thing. When I read the part about his body cracking it totally gave me the chills. I hope you can take a nap when you get back from "hell".

I can't cope with the crunching which is why I can't smash bugs. So I sick the ferrets on them, but they never help me out. In the end I fling something at it so I don't have to be up close and personal with the crunch.
