Look what mama did

I just killed a snake.

No, YOU shut up!

Pick your jaw up off the floor. Here it is:




I know, right???

We came in late from Mamaw's house. Daddy's out working tonight. Duke was barking his fool head off, and growling. I went to see what the ruckus was about, and lo and behold, this monster. Well, ok, a chicken snake. But still.

(It is a chicken snake, right? If anybody knows anything about snakes, let me know.)

I pulled on my cowboy boots over my capris and found the hoe in the garage (had to ask Jonas where Daddy keeps it). It took me about 35 chops before I hit the darn thing. Oooh, the way they move is so scary. ::::shudder::::

I'd better do some target practice with the hoe.

On a brighter note, while the kids were camped out at Debbie's, I found the very earrings I've always wanted:



(Debbie, if you're reading this, I really did run the errands I told you about when I asked you to babysit. It's just....well, this cute little boutique was right next door, and....um, thanks for watching the kids. Happy Mother's Day.)

Free taco to anyone who notices what's missing in the above picture. Or catches the quote from Corduroy.



In case you're wondering what I do all day around here.

Wouldn't want to leave Daddy out. Here's the snake he killed yesterday:



Yep, that's right, two snakes in two days. Right in the backyard. We have a bit of a situation.

Justin graduates tomorrow. Round of applause, please.

OK, well, welcome to my blog. Thanks for stopping by. I'll try to make it worth your while. Goodnight.
