So thankful for my bug alarm.

so the other night I was sleeping, but I must not have been in a deep sleep because when Lina jumped off of my leg and meowed I woke up.  By the sound of her meow I knew that there was some sort of bug in the room.  It’s weird, I know, but she does this weird meow when she sees any kind of bug.  So then I’m freaking out because it’s probably a spider.   I looked over at the wall she was looking at and see this thing run across the wall…now it’s dark and I don’t have my glasses on yet at this point, so this thing has to be big because I’m blind.

So then I get up, get my glasses, and turn on the light and see this giant house centipede running along the wall.  I’m relieved it’s not a spider but I still don’t want this thing running around the bedroom.  So I’m trying to be quiet so I don’t wake up Don and I see my chance and I grabbed my shoe and attempted to kill it.  But it was fast and it moved up the wall and I couldn’t reach it.  At this point, I was getting tired and it seemed like this thing was just going to stay on the ceiling so I decided to get in bed.  I’m worried though because what if this centipede comes into the bed?  I don’t know if you know what I’m talking about, but these things are fast and they are just kinda freaky.  So I bring the covers up to my neck and hope it stays on the ceiling.

Then the heat comes on and with all the covers “protecting” me from the centipede I’m getting freaken hot and uncomfortable.  Then I heard Lina meow and hit the floor with her paws…so now I’m assuming she has caught this thing so I bring the covers down and try to get back to sleep.  I think by now like an hour has passed.  But now I had to pee so I got up and saw that the centipede was back on the ceiling.  I couldn’t believe she hadn’t caught it by now, but I’m tired of chasing this thing so I get in bed.

I’m almost asleep when Lina jumped on me and meowed……I’m freaken out…where’s the centipede?!  She’s looking at the wall next to the head of the bed and I can see the centipede coming down!!  It’s coming for me.  I grabbed my shoe again and finally killed it.  After about 2 hours of off and on again sleeping and worrying about this house centipede it is dead!

Tonight I was making dinner and heard the bug meow and there’s another freaken house centipede in the kitchen.  It’s a smaller one like a baby.  Do I have some sort of infestation?!  I  looked this bug up online and it seems they are harmless and they eat a ton of other bugs, including spiders.  Which is good I guess, but I really don’t want them in bed with me.
