We had a close call tonight. When I got home from dinner I noticed some sand on the book shelf next to where the snake aquarium sits. I look around the aquarium and sure enough no snakey. I hurry and get the kids to bed because it is already 9:30 and they should have been in bed an hour ago. If I would have told them the snake was out, there would have been tears shed and craziness. By the way the last snake was never found. In case you missed it, my sister purchased Elisabeth another one for her birthday. Surely the other snake found his way outside. So once the kids were in bed, I started looking. I found him in the play room under a basket of swords. He was a fast little booger and he peed on me, but I got him and put him in the travel cage he came in with a brick on top. Needless to say, we are going to have to invest in a locking lid for the snake cage. I can't have all kinds of snakes loose in my house.
