14 days...

     We leave in 14 days.  FOURTEEN!

     I'm taking time off from my incessant writing to say.....

     So much to do.  So very much to do....

     I'm frantically writing this history curriculum to get as much done before we leave.  I am to the point where I am sick of looking at the computer. 

This afternoon I promised Ben I would take time off to watch the World Cup game today with the UNITED STATES playing against ??   That's pretty bad that I am so out of it that I don't know who is playing.  I LOVE soccer and I LOVE the World Cup and I have yet to watch ONE game. 

DID I MENTION THAT WE ARE LEAVING IN FOURTEEN DAYS??? 

One quick story... on Thursday I was SICK of writing so Ben and I decided to clean out the garage.... Actually I decided to clean out the garage and I decided that HE would help me....

     So with brooms in hand, a bucket and scrub brush (to clean out the fridge) - we began to tackle the beast.  Not fifteen minutes into the job... out from behind the fridge slides a looonnnngggg BLACK SNAKE!

    I hate snakes.  They are so NOT my friends.  I don't mind spiders, bugs, mice and every other creepy crawly thing but snakes.... NOT!  I don't care if the think isn't poisonous and is a good deterrent for other beasts etc. etc.  I HATE SNAKES!

     I called Rob (20 minutes away) to come home and get that snake out of my garage. 
He laughed. 
He'd get it that night! 
Not soon enough! 
 I wanted to clean the garage because I DIDN'T want to look at the computer and have to write. 

SNAKE... HISTORY WRITING....SNAKE....HISTORY WRITING....
That was my choice...

I CHOSE THE SNAKE!

    We scared the thing enough so that it slid back under the fridge.  Knowing where it was allowed us to clean out the garage.  Yippee!
I didn't have to sit at the computer for several hours!!

When Rob came home to get the SNAKE out of the garage.... it was NOT to be found!  

Sigh!
