One day while car shopping..


Last Friday my dh and I went for a drive , just the 2 of us, which is an unusual event in our life in the hill country. We were going to look at cars for one of our teens and looking at cars of any kind is one of my least favorite activities. As we passed by the elementary school that all 3 of my babies went to, my dh turns and says to me " I need to tell you something and I dont think you are going to like what I have to say " My vision went blurry, my heart sped up, and life went into s-l-o-w motion. "Oh, really ?" I said as I stared at the playground where my babies had played all thru preschool and elementary... "What is it ??????" "Well," my dh continues "Wednesday night while you were asleep I went into the garage to get a bottle of water and heard a hissing sound. I looked down and saw a big brown snake. Its gone now bc I attacked it with the shovel and thew it away. I just didnt want to tell you bc I knew you would never want to go in the garage again !"

Yes my blog sister-friends... hill country hubbies are diamonds in the rough ! Did you ever guess a girl would be so happy to hear that her d hubby found and killed a snake in the garage while she was sleeping ?????

See, my husband would have woken me up to come look at it. He's snarky like that.

Thanks for the funny story. My husband would have screamed bloody murder and then we would have both been paralyzed with panic and fear. We are wimpy wimpy wimpy, both of us. Our cats take car of the tree roaches thank God!

Aren't you lucky your husband deals with snakes!! Snakes make my skin crawl!
My Frenchhusband would not kill it, he would say it was okay for us to accept it, and I would have crawling skin for days on end!!!
