From spiders to snakes, from baby shower to babysitting

Last time I mentioned finding a spider, well a couple days ago we found a snake!  Luckily he wasn't under the bed.  FB and I had just gotten home from shopping, both with arms full w/ sacks.  He was stepping out of our garage when I saw a ginormous black snake laying across the threshold of the garage door.  Right under FB's feet, I of course scream.  This sends FB flying, then I was shut inside the garage alone, with no way out!  I'm a little panicky at this point, thankfully FB was a little calmer now that he realized it was just a snake.  He calmly told me to open the big garage door.  This provided me a way out, and provided FB a way in so he could take care of the snake!  I'm so not a fan of the country life right now!  Spiders, snakes... what's next??

I got the shower invitations in the mail Monday.  Now all that's left is food, drinks, and decorations... OK wow I've got a lot to do.  I am babysitting all day today and tomorrow.  I was a little nervous that the lil' guy would be cranky or hard to keep happy or any other number of problems.  Luckily day one's almost complete and no major catastrophes.  He's refusing to sleep in his basinet, but he's sleeping just fine with me.  Probably not exactly what his mama would prefer, she's all about the schedule.  Anyway, we're having fun, and I believe it's almost time for a bottle.  So I'll end this blog, and see you again soon.

Oh... My... I really miss the interwebs

Random wedding pic, because I feel like it

I can't believe how long it's been!  I miss checking in on everyone's blogs, facebooking, and emails!  When school starts it should be better, at least I can check emails everyday.  I'm w/ FB at his school today, so I can blog.  But his school blocks facebook and my email.  I'm hostessing a baby shower for my sister-in-law.  Looking forward to that!  I really don't have much new, summer's pretty uneventful in the FB house.  We found a tarantula under the bed.  FB was in the bedroom and said, "Wow, that's big."  He didn't get overly excited or yell or even act that surprised.  I walked around the corner to see what it was, and jumped out of my skin!  It was not just any spider, it really was a tarantula.  FB was taking way too long to squash the thing, but as he pointed out later a flip flop wouldn't have killed the sucker.  Then he thought I'd clean it off the floor... he was sorely mistaken!  Anyway, today we're going into town and investing in some bug killer for around the house.
Our house finally looks put together, there's very few things that haven't found a home yet.  I plan to get that finished up and thank you notes done before school starts.  I have to go back on the 23rd.  I'm really looking forward to having a schedule again.  And see people other than FB on a regular basis.  OK, I think that's all I've got for now.  Hope you're all doing well, stick with me.  I'll start blogging more once school starts and I can have some internet time.
