After a jam packed day, I came home to do some "mental therapy" by playing in the yard with my flowers. I love to spend time out in the yard watering and planting flowers. Well tonight I was just watering the front flowers and after finishing I went to turn off the water and thought I must have stepped on the hose to make it move but as I looked closer my foot was about an inch (absolutely no more) away from a 4 foot snake. The hose was not moving but instead it was a snake!! I promise you I yelled so loud that neighbors came out to see what was wrong. I do NOT do snakes. I don't like looking at them or being anywhere near them. (If you know my dad you will know why... he loves to pull pranks with snakes) I went running inside to get Michael who heard me scream but thought I was playing and he came out to kill the snake. He thought I was exaggerating when I said BIG but once he saw it, he knew why I was screaming....

|this snake doesn't belong near my house|
On to a little later and while walking out to our back shed... what now...we have a BAT. What in the world! I am only a little freaked out by these latest two developments. I am not a fan of either of these two. I shouted at the bat to leave me and my house and my yard! I hope he listens.
Then a few MINUTES later, we found not one but two ticks on our precious dog that is well taken care of, bathed often, and mostly lives inside. WHAT IS THE DEAL... I don't do these things and I don't live in the woods. I live in a neighborhood....
After a quick consult with a vet friend, we removed the tick and all was ok! I think I was traumatized more that Drake but we gave him 10 treats anyway.
My "mental therapy" became more of a "mental flood" but at least I got a good scream out!
