My mom got bit and was hospitalized for a black widow spider bite. First of 1. Who gets bit by a black widow spider. 2. I didn't even know black widows were specific to Va. 3. I've now developed an instant death fear of spiders. 4. Blogging stopping b/c I've been spending all of my time with her. Note: She's making a grand recovery but it literally incapacitated her for 4 days. If you know her, send her some love, I know she'd really appreciate it. Thank you so much for the patience of all of my wonderful clients who are waiting for galleries and previews, I'm promise to make your wait worth it.
