Missed a chance (添削後)

I was supposed to have lunch with my English fellows today, but now I'm alone at home feeling sorry for ending up 1) being absent.
One of the members of our English club has found a full-time job, and she mentioned that the job would make her busy, juggling both work and motherhood. I'd missed the English club for whole a month due to some field trips of my son's school, so I really looked forward to meeting my friends and chatting over lunch with them.
Well, then, inspite of all my expectation, how come did I missed the chance to see my friends?
What inpeded me was nasty centipedes.

I moved into my place this spring with my family. The complex apartment buildings apartment complex which we live in were supposedly built over 30 years ago. I had no grievance until I met them: centipedes. While living here, I've come across three of them in my bed room and living room, and the one that poped up in my bed room was so big that I took it as a moving thick pipe!
Instead of having delicious lunch and bubbly conversation, I'm waiting for a call from a company to eliminate harmful and 2) eerie insects...




1) missing out ... Sounds more natural. とのことでした。miss out = 参加できない
2) creepy
   なぜ eerie でなく creepy がいいのか。
   いつも添削してくれるキャサリンが、こんな風に説明してくれました。
   * eerie is usually used for things that are supernatural (ghosts etc).
   なるほど~~~~~\(^o^)/。

Thank you for spending your precious time! I'm also fill in the specifics about how to cope with the creepy insect, but in fact we don't have any effective solution...
The insects might have come to my place with my son's baseball bag because he usually put his bag on the ground directly while his practice games.
Now I'm okay at night because my daughter and I have a good night sleep in 蚊帳. ^^

I was going to look up how to get rid of centipedes for you... but I couldn't handle the images/pics of centipedes on those websites that I couldn't bare to read any of what they say at all! I hope you will get help from exterminators and get rid of all the crawly creatures! I HATE bugs!!!!!
