    It seems most women are afraid of spiders.
    Every spider I see living in our house is called "Spinnbert" or "Spinberta". And they are allowed inside as long as I'm not getting stung by a mosquito.

      I like spiders like Chris Lee Bear said, they eat insects but I'm afraid of other things. From some of them to a point I get catatonic.

        I've loved spiders since I was a little kid! I used to play with them all the time, I especially love the cute, little ones!

        But I get super freaked out by moths, so... I kind of get what it's like. Good thing your husband's not afraid of them too!

          I don't mind spiders. I usually relocate them if I find them inside, but I used to have a little one that lived in my room. It had a web in the corner of my ceiling above my lamp, so it caught all the tiny insects that were attracted to the light, which worked well for both of us.

            I'm not a fan of spiders, but like Belerith I am super freaked out by moths (butterflies scare me, too - I don't like the flapping!)

              Ah, yes, spiders, thanks for all your input

              sleep_twitch I had to look up what coenobitidae are and that looks super interesting! Years ago there was a spider expedition in a local shopping centre and I forced myself to watch the spiders up close for a long time, like your time in front of the spider terrarium it really helped with my fear. In the past I couldn't even look at pictures of spiders, now I can do that (and even watch videos!) no problem.

              Chris Lee Bear my fear's got better. Technically, I'm happy about every spider I see in my home because they're a sign of good room climate and they keep other insects at bay, but I still don't like seeing them. I once even considered getting reptiles against spiders, but my husband hates every kind of animal.

              Belerith and Whirly15 during the hot summer months we often have HUGE moths in our bedroom after airing the room at night. They're extremely LOUD (they almost sound like small helicopters) and it's always a big hassle to get them out of the room again. We don't want to smash them because of their size they will probably leave huge and ugly stains. Moths are no big problem for me, though.

              Silent Wolf we stopped taking the spiders outside because if you don't put them away a far away they just turn around and come back Usually we had spiders in front of the windows and they kept the other insects away, and during the summer the whole town was covered in spiders, but I haven't really seen them the last few years any more.

                I haven't posted my status update yesterday because I was short on time, so I'm doing that now:

                Yesterday, I did:
                - Good Morning, World! Day 10
                - 1 Minute Cardio Day 10
                - Wall Push Ups Day 10
                - Power Walk Day 10
                - 30 Days of HIIT Days 24, 26 and 28 on Level 1
                - 60 Days of Cardio Day 47 on Level 3
                - Power Grip Day 10
                - Rest & Repair on Level 1 no rests.

                And because it's still reasonably early-ish I wish you all a nice day

                  Nothing much to tell (boring day) so I'm skipping straight to the status update:

                  Today I did:
                  - Good Morning, World Day 11
                  - 1 Minute Cardio Day 11
                  - Wall Push Ups Day 11
                  - 30 Days of HIIT Day 24 or so on Level 1 (because High Knees...)
                  - Power Walk Day 11
                  - Power Grip Day 11

                  I skipped in 60 Days of Cardio today because my knee feels a bit funky and it has Squat Hops. Will probably do it tomorrow.

                  Also, typing is really weird and difficult after 1:30 minutes of Power Grip

                  Hope you all had a nice day

                    Hope the knee feels better soon! I also noticed that it was quite hard to type after doing Power Grip...

                      Thank you, Whirly15
                      It's nothing serious regarding the knee, it just feels a bit exhausted. I didn't want to take any chances, though.
                      And about power grip... after a minute of overhead clench I have troubles unclenching my fist again

                        Ah, yes. Power Grip is fun 😁😁

                          I hope that your knee feels better today ❤️

                            Thanks, lapedrina It sometimes complains during one exercise that's low impact and works perfectly fine on the next that is high impact. Knees... don't understand them.

                            Tonight I had a horrible dream. Not in the nightmare-sense, but it was super exhausting. I was leaving my grandmother's house with my father, driving in his car, and when we were at the main street he stopped the car and said he had forgotten the keys for our house. I had to run back to fetch them. Grandmother's house was way up on a steep hill and the way up there was wet and mossy, and thus very, very slippery. So I ran back up. And usually when I have dreams where I have to run, I use my hands for support, kinda running a bit ape-style. I ran up and down and when I got back to the car my father wasn't there, only a hitman in suit and sunglasses who shot me in the head.
                            When I woke up my legs and arms ached. I tried to get some water and my legs felt all wobbly. Meh

                            Might explain why I was feeling sluggish for the rest of the day. At least I got my workout done. Here's my status update.

                            Today I did:
                            - Good Morning, World! Day 12
                            - 1 Minute Cardio Day 12
                            - Wall Push Ups Day 12
                            - 30 Days of HIIT Day 27 on Level 3
                            - Power Walk Day 12
                            - Power Grip Day 12
                            - 60 Days of Cardio Day 48 on Level 3

                            And if anyone's in the mood for a bit of music, here's a song I had in my head on constant repeat for the last few days (and still have): The Verve - Love Is Noise

                            Hope you all had a very nice day

                              Yup. I also hate when my subconscious pulls out plottwists far better than my own lel

                                That dream sounds super scary! I often dream that I have to run to get somewhere, but the air is like a thick slime and I'm not moving forward no matter how hard I try..
