Look at the pretty snake Daddy!

Last week as we were getting ready to head out, and this little fella made his appearance in the back yard. I almost stepped on it with my flip flops on. I wonder if he could have gotten ahold of my big ole toe? I quickly rendered him..................lifeless and brought the kids out for a quick lesson on "pretty" snakes and how dangerous they are. We then took it out to MeMe and Pop's house and coiled it up by their back door to see if we could scare one of them. It didn't work but everyone couldn't believe how big it was. It was about 24" long. Keep an eye out for snakes, we've heard lots of stories about how they are out and about.

Excuses, Excuses............

So I realize it's been like 71 days since my last post but you know what...."You'll get over it." I had intentions of posting the finished treehouse project, or the next deer lease update, or maybe even another supermodel post, but life happens. I really think that all my "followers" will be ok with it though (yes, all 4 of you).

Now when I say Life happens...I mean just that. Nothing spectacular or life altering or tramatic (well not to most people) has happened. My priorities are still the same, it's just that my time available for these priorities has changed. It used to be easy to be jobless and try to take care of things (only to have to beg and plead for help from the wife) around the house and still have time to hang with the kiddos, the wife, the dog, and to blog. Heck, it used to be easy to do all that stuff with a regular day job. And along came B.I.N.G.O. I took on a part time job (consequences of my poor judgement - which is another blog unsuitable for public viewing). Bingo has been a great way for me to make a few extra bucks. Luckily I have an amazing boss who lets me take off early to get to my part time gig. The only thing bad about working this other job is that there are some days that I see the kids for a few minutes in the morning and by the time I get home they are sound asleep in bed so the best I can do is peek in on them, give them a peck on the cheek, tell them sweet dreams and I love them and then laugh hysterically. I mean seriously, how does a 3 year old move around so much while sleeping to end up with her head at the foot of the bed while laying on no less than 5 books, and how does a 7 year old drool so much. I mean I can uderstand a quarter size spot, but a volleyball size?? Come on kid. Quite comical, and yes, more blog post material.

Luckily the wife still waits up on me. We chat for a few minutes while I have my midnight snack, then go to sleep (unless it's kinky night), and then start the whole process all over again the next day.

Anyway, i just wanted to post of few pics. If these pics don't make you smile then you need therapy.

Check back later for a post of who knows what. Maybe the treehouse or the garden or the deer lease or the wifey or ?????
