There are big bugs here in paradise . . .

For those of you who have been verbally abusing me for my being in Hawaii . . . it's not all sun, fun + games!  Saturday evening I went into the kitchen to clean up after putting the twins to bed for the evening.  There was 1/2 of a veggie burger pattie on a plate on the stove and there was something on it . . . a freakin huge bug.  I almost ran screaming from the room, but the thought of this thing being loose somewhere in the house forced me to keep it together.  I quickly grabbed the microwave cover and slammed it on top and then quickly realized that there is a hole in the top so I was looking for something to cover that with.

 Earlier in the day, there was a gecko in the girls play room.  I was able to capture him and release it in the backyard, but this bug is really creepy and did I mention freakin huge?  It is now Wednesday, it is still alive and still on top of the stove under cover where it will remain until my daughter arrives home and probably has to pay someone to come in and remove it . . .  I'm sure she thinks I was joking about waiting for her return to take care of this, NOT!

We have those here in the south. Freeked me out when I first met them but now, not so much. we call them tree roaches, mostly outside bugs, that come in for food if we let them. They don't bite or sting, just look nasty and can move pretty fast and/or fly.
