This morning was a typical morning. Woke up to screaming children, hurriedly got cereal for girls, made my coffee and sat down to blog about weight loss. The girls wanted to watch tv so I turned on animal planet--Steve Irwin the crocodile hunter was on!!
I finished my blog and began making my first cup of coffee. Reese and Rae were running around the house playing with Reese's stuffed anaconda pretending to be snake wranglers themselves---just like good 'ole Steve. Then Rae SCREAMED "SNAKE" there is a "SNAKE". I pretty much ignored it as creative play. Then Reese let out a scream and said "MOM THERE REALLY IS A SNAKE"!!!!
Something in her scream caught my attention. I stepped away from the truvia and milk to go check it out.
OH MY GOODNESS!
There WAS a snake! Along the wall between my two girl's bedroom. I immediately called Jason. He is across the street with his dad cooking for Men's Breakfast. I said, "I need you and your dad RIGHT NOW, there is a SNAKE in the HOUSE!!!". He didn't even say anything. All I heard was click and he was on his way.
I opened the door to reassure him that we weren't in immediate danger--it was a very skinny, small, baby snake. But a SNAKE none-the-less!
Jason rushed in to rescue us! He got a toy tub and chased the snake--who was now IN Raeleigh's room. He caught it in less than a minute and actually killed 2 birds with one stone. He got rid of a spider in the process too! (We have spiders BAD).
So we are once again safe--and hopefully snake free.
There is a small hole at the base of our front door where the weather stripping is missing...needless to say I will be fixing that hole at some point today.
NO MORE SNAKES FOR ME!!!!!
