It has been a pretty creepy couple of days around here. This place has always been a bit of a zoo; but this is getting ridiculous!
Yesterday, the Man of the House was outside where he has been pressure washing, sanding, and repainting the garage doors. As he went to sand one side of the frame, he came face to face with this...
Yep. That's a little ol' bat. Who was hanging upside down getting his beauty rest right on the side of our house! YIKES!!
AS if that wasn't enough... today happened.
I was cleaning up in the kitchen. As I finished up and walked out of the kitchen, this was slithering across the living room floor!
An approximately 5 foot long black snake was IN. MY. HOUSE. I screamed. I screamed a little more. I yelled for the Male Offspring. I texted the Man of the House. The snake slithered along the wall and under the little wagon where I keep books for the grand kid.
The Male Offspring trapped it under a plastic storage bin, where it stayed for a while. We needed time to figure out our next move. Finally, the male offspring decided to slide some cardboard under the bin - and the snake - and we carried the entire thing outside.
I'm glad all these critters are the sort which eat other, nastier creatures and nothing terribly dangerous. But enough is enough! The only animals I want living in my house are the cat and dog.
