Tuesdays BBQ was a lot of fun. A little bit of too much fun for me. But I am on the mend. Those mike’s hard lemonades were delicious and many of them went down fast. It thunderstormed just before our BBQ festivities started. We got a sh*tload of much needed rain. At least that helped with the fireworks fire dangers-but it left the rest of the day hot, humid, and steamy. Much like a sauna. I made a small attempt at amusing Wee One by lighting his fireworks for him when his daddy took a short break. I lit off 2 colored smoke bombs (it was still daylight) and in the process I was able to burn my finger and scorch my new french manicure not just once but twice. It still kinda stings but I fixed the manicure. We did not even get all of our fireworks lit off either. I guess we’ll save those for NewYears. Wee One had an absolute blast. He was filthy dirty when we got home and needed a shower, so we both took one, then crashed into bed. I was out before my head reached the pillow, I am sure about that.
Monday afternoon at work, hubby had a very close call with a Velvet Tail Rattler snake(not the actual picture above). He came within inches of stepping on it when he heard it rattle. Needless to say, mr. snake is a goner now. Hubby was SE at the G. Lease and walked into the doghouse( a small tin building on a lease site ) to put something on a shelf. His eyes had not adjusted from the bright outside sunlight when he first stepped into the door. The rattler was laying right by the door. Hubby said it went under the shelf, coiled up, and was rattling very loudly. The building was fixed so nothing could get inside underneath the door, but somehow a piece of cement was chipped under the door and thats how it got in. Hubby hates snakes, even little bitty grass snakes!
Okay, this next thing is a secret..more along the lines of TOP SECRET. So, all of my family members who read this and all my my local friends who read this (KayKay, Georgie, J&B (not the drink) Mischa, Melissa) No blabbing! Hubby and I want to suprise son #1. Hubby and I entered into a contract to buy a new 1998 3 bedroom/2bath home on a lot more acreage than we have now. It also has a small horse barn, 1 large run in shed, a pond, another small utility barn and a garage. It is only about 3 mi West of where we live now. I am not sure of the square footage, but we’ll be getting A LOT more room! The best part-no irritating neighbors!! We’ll know this evening or tomorrow for sure, but it looks good, VERY good. So, theres my exciting news. I hope it works out. I thought hubby would hesitate about getting a mortgage, especially a BIG one, but since we have had an offer on this place (where we live now) and we owe next to nothing on it, he was all for a new home. So y’all keep your fingers crossed and Ill keep you updated.
