complete FREAK OUT!

Today I innocently went to take out our trash and found a SNAKE in our GARAGE! I first thought it must be a rubber snake because there couldn't be a real one in the garage, but then I remembered that I had thrown all of Samuel's little rubber snakes (some so called 'friend' had given him an entire bag of them for his birthday) in the trash because I couldn't deal with having them around. After running back inside, I opened the door again and took a quick look back just to make sure I wasn't seeing things and to make sure it was really there. It was. Then I did a quick lap around our kitchen island, grabbed my cell phone, jumped up on a chair, and called Josh. Thankfully he was my hero and came home and took care of the problem. Before getting down from the chair I called Dad too, because if Josh couldn't come home, he was my next target for help. (not thinking clearly at this point...) Some of you may find this humorous (Rhonda), but it really was not. I can handle any type of bug or spider that comes my way, but snakes are not welcome here. I am becoming less enamoured with NC.

snake stats: it was about 1 foot long (stop laughing - the small ones are really dangerous) and was black with gray triangles or diamonds or something.... can't talk about it anymore....

lizards and snakes.... what's next? oh Lord, give me strength......
