I cannot believe it's Tuesday already. I really do have a lot to talk about, I have no clue why I wait until Tuesday to blog. Maybe because it's the coolest day to blog since IA and I host this super awesome link party with no rules! Anysquirrel, I need to make a list so I don't forget all of the crazy/funny things that happy during my "normal" week.
This week I witnessed "softball Moms" at their fines, ate and drank way too much, peed my pants just feet from a bathroom, crashed a group dating party with my hubby and kids, and found a snake in my house. It's been a busy and exciting few days!
Today for my rule-free TTUT post I've chosen to talk about the snake in my house...
If y'all are anything like me you put off projects until the very last minute. I've put off cleaning out what used to be my office closet and buying a mattress for the now guest bedroom until I actually had a guest coming. My beautiful niece, who took me posting a horrible picture of her from the 7th grade on FB like a champ, called Thursday to say she would be here Monday afternoon for 3 days. No time like the present to tackle that black hole of a closet and go mattress
Around 1am Monday morning I was down to the nitty-gritty in the closet; I reached for a picture that had fallen in-between the wall and dresser and pulled out this beauty....
That would be Babe and I circa 1991. There's no need to tell me how uber hot we were cuz I already know!
So I grabbed a piece of tape to tape the picture to the inside of the closet and my fingers rubbed against something that didn't feel quite right. I flipped the picture over to find a snake stuck to a piece of double sided tape. I screamed, threw the picture to the ground, and went to change my pants. I have lived in Florida for almost 20 years and have come accustomed to a lot of creatures but snakes in my house is not one of them! Be it dead or alive a snake has no place in my house!
I do actually feel slightly bad for this baby black-racer. Poor thing died a slow and horrible death while trying to free himself from the tape. I'm just glad he didn't call for his Mamma to rescue him!
Babe is gone for a few days...Is it wrong that I have placed the picture in his office, snake still in tact, in hopes that he too will pick it up to
laugh reminisce about "the way we were" and find the dead snake?
It also may be wrong that my niece walked on water to get out of the pool when a live snake came at her last night. I may or may not have forgotten to warn her to check the skimmer baskets before she jumdep in. Oops!
What are you talking about today? I promise I will do my very best to make it to all of you, I visited half of you last week, as soon as I get home from the beach... You gotta love summer vacation!
