Hospitals, Snakes & Traveling....A Busy Week

I'll go ahead and apologize now for having such a rambling, non-cohesive post but it's the only way I can update everyone on what's going on with us this week.

If you're still interested, read on.

I will be spending Tuesday & Wednesday mornings at the hospital with my step-dad who is having some procedures done. Thankfully, Daddy is home this week on vacation so the kiddos don't have to accompany me. The procedures done today went well, there is a pacemaker change to be done tomorrow. Hopefully that will go just as well.

While I was away today, the kids & Daddy had some excitement. Daddy was sitting in one of our chairs on the front porch and Gracie went to sit in the other one but when she moved the pillow -something was already there....you guessed it - A SNAKE. She didn't know what it was right away & thought it was one of Chase's leashes. (I'm glad she didn't get the chance to pick it up.)
Daddy managed to get it into the yard where he proceeded to kill it.
(If you're one of those bleeding green, tender hearted environmentalists who is going to get all ticked off - SAVE IT. We don't care. It's a snake. Around our children. End of story!)

Once again, we will be leaving to head down south and do a little house hunting. We FINALLY got the totals that we needed from the relocation company and should be able to put an offer in on a house. Yay!
I'll let you know how that all plays out when we return on Saturday.

Until then, I hope everyone is doing well & staying cool in this heat.
I look forward to catching up on all the blogs when we get back.

Oh my goodness, could you have any more going on right now??

Wow! And just so you know, this girl is so not a "bleeding heart" and if you could have, I say kill the snake twice! :)

Happy house hunting can't wait to see which one you pick.

No bleeding heart for the creature.
