It Just Keeps Getting Better!

After posting my ER post this morning, I went to wake Seth up. I was standing in his doorway talking to him, and then turned to go back in the living room. I didn't have my contacts in or my glasses on, but as I turned, I saw the end of a snake slithering under the chair. Needless to say, I screamed and ran, hollering at Seth. I ran all the way outside to the front porch. Seth put his boots on, and turned the chair over. I heard him say "It's a huge ring neck" to which I replied with another scream! He managed to pin it behind the couch with a pool stick. He killed it and carried it outside. Needless to say, I called Charlie & Malachi, who were welding at Papaw's, and made them come home and turn over and look under and around every piece of furniture in the house before I would step foot in it again. I can handle lizards, bats, mice, rats, angry goats, dogs, anything except a snake. I CANNOT handle a snake. They freak me out, make me paranoid and give me nightmares. I had a science teacher in Jr. High, Mrs. McQuiddy, who thought she would cure me of my fear of snakes by making me touch a blue racer. All it accomplished was giving me nightmares for months! I can't step a foot on the floor without looking all around me first, and move past furniture very quickly. Not sure when I'll have peace of mind again.

I can feel your fear. I am extremely afraid of snakes. How do you think it got in? We had one in the laundry room in the basement and I almost stepped on it. I thought I was going to have a heart attack. Of course, your cousin Junior thought it was funny. I hope you can sleep tonight without dreaming about it.

Not sure how it got in. We have had them in the house before, through the years. Fortunately, it's always been ring necks. We have copperheads real bad around our house, but THANK GOD, never one in the house! I was able to sleep, after much prayer, even though my father-in-law (who is currently mad at me), told me it would crawl in the bed with me!

Hey Kyra,
It was very, very scary. I bet me and mommy can both scream really loud!
I love you!
