‘Fraidy-Pants Friday Updates!

Okay…I thought of a few more things that I was afraid of that I must add to my list!

16.  Snakes.

17.  Snakes that might be hiding under my bed.  Have I ever found a snake under my bed? No.  But that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t scare me!  I am always afraid when I have to get out of bed in the middle of the night to use the bathroom, because when I come back to bed the snakes are going to be ready to bite my feet!  This fear has caused me to form a habit of jumping into my bed from about two to three feet away from it.  Tia thinks it is a game and she tries to bite my feet…but she never gets me!

18.  That I am going to forget something I need for my race or for the whole weekend! Yikes!

{Of course I need a hair dryer and make up bag for a race weekend!}

19. Bad guys.

20.  Bad guys that might be hiding under my bed.  This is a lot like the snakes under the bed fear, in that I am afraid a bad guy will grab my ankles if I do not make a running jump into my bed at night.

However, number nine from my last post is becoming less of a fear as I am crossing things off of my to-do list!

Tia probably won’t get her hair fixed today, but I’m sure she’s okay with that!

As far as my race fears go, I have been doing everything I can to prepare…I’ve been eating tons of carbs, I packed a t-shirt, a long sleeve shirt, and a jacket, I finished an easy three mile run, and I went to a nice relaxing yoga class today.

Here goes nothing!

  1. Snakes, huh? They really aren’t so bad. They help keep mice away. And some of them even have pretty colors. But you are right I don’t think I want to find one under my bed. Or actually anywhere where they are not supposed to be.

  2. I will be thinking about you and looking forward to hearing your good news about the race. There are NO snakes under your bed but I have a phobia about the pillows I lay my head on. THEY must NEVER touch the ground. Imaginations are a good thing most of the time!

  3. I am also afraid of bad guys and not snakes, but spiders under my bed. And to make matters worse, when I was like 7 years old, my brother hid under my bed and when I went to climb in he grabbed my ankles from underneath and I’m pretty sure I fainted. So yeah…still kind of scared of that happening…
