CLOSED: What is this bulbous brown spider found in Florida home??

Bradenton, FL

We found this spider (around 1/5 inches, light brown, big round back end, and short legs) in our living room this morning. We live in central west Florida about 10 miles from the gulf. After some Google searches the closest thing I could find was a purse web spider but I'm really not sure. I'd love some expert opinions! :) Hoping not to find any more of these guys in our house!

Phew, thank you so much for the peace of mind!
