My first bright idea was to go ahead and shampoo the carpet while the rugrat was still in bed. I picked up, vacuumed, and wet down a few areas with boiling water and carpet shampoo as a spot treatment, then went to get the shampooer and realized I was missing a piece I needed. After spending 40+ minutes looking for it, I threw in the towel and decided to weed the garden instead.
|That's our mower under the tarp on the left. It's broken, obviously.|
That was all good, until it got close to the garden and I saw this huge snake. I thought about running down there and attacking it with the garden hoe, but I didn't want to be handling snakes and swinging sharp metal objects with a 2 year old instead, so we watched it cruise around the gardens and went back inside instead.
|Seriously, the thing was at least 3 feet long!|
We packed up our stuff and went to the park, because there was no way I was going back in that yard with the anaconda wanna-be lurking around in the grass.
I did go down there later to water the garden and didn't get eaten by the snake, but I am officially freaked out for the rest of the summer.
