Currently I Am......

Hi-dee-ho everyone!!
Silly me thought I was getting a jump on the Currently linky
hosted by the Fab Farley....then I saw I am like number 200????
So much for the jump....I'll just do the join....
Currently I am on the couch.....watching TV and being lazy BUT I have a good excuse...
I rolled my ankle yesterday raking and went tumbling.....
yep.....tumbling backwards.....grasping for things that would stop my fall.....
things that were not there://////
The hubs said he saw hair and then my feet flying....
so I say I am being lazy but I am really sitting with ice on my knee "resting"....
I twisted hurts......I am too old and out of shape for back flips!!!
So here I am.......Currently:)
 On top of my weekend having  the "failed back flip"......
Oh yeah......also had company in my kitchen the other day....
I wish I was April fooling ya.....but I'm not!
This huge lovely came into my kitchen the other day.....well,
first he came into the garage...found his way to the door that goes into my
kitchen,........and then......he waited!
When hubs went out the door, snake came in......
I screamed so loud I'm surprised someone didn't call the police!!!
Do you see how long it is?!?!?!?!?!!?!?
My husband is fairly tall......ucky snake.....go ahead....scream for me!!!
Seriously though, minus those 2 little details, we had the best weekend ever.
Whole fam together for a few days was perfect!
Now, I'm off to ice the knee/be lazy/avoid lesson plans!!!
Thanks for popping by:) 
Go link up to the Fab Farley's Currently!!


  1. YIKES! We had one of those in our bathroom when I was a kid. My mom went after it with a butcher knife. LOL
    I thought I was going to be early too...guess not.

  2. I swear I am not LOLing at you but with you. We went to our friend's house for Easter dinner and I fell down their stairs. Rug burn and bruise on my arm and bruises in some other interesting places. It is a fantastic excuse for watching t.v.!! (although I guess I could be marking or planning on the couch). Hope you feel better soon!

  3. That snake is huge!! I would have absolutely freaked out!!! I'm with you- let's go back to Friday and have a redo on the weekend- that'd be great! :)

  4. Hello, My Sweet Friend:
    Next time you want company, just call me in California. DON'T invite the snake for lunch--invite me!
    I'm sorry about your injury, but glad that you had family to take care of you.
    Sending you giant hugs and good wishes!

  6. I do NOT DO SNAKES! I am an Army Wife and those kinds of things ALWAYS happen when the boys are deployed! I have screamed for my neighbors before! The only thing worse than a snake is a little lizard! EWWWW!
    Your blog is super cute! If you designed that yourself- you should be very proud!

  7. Hey friend,
    I hope you are recovering. Keep that ice on there and watch Pitch Perfect another 5 times to avoid those lesson plans :) Have a great rest of the day and a terrific week.

    Oh, and don't rake again. Make the hubby do it :)

    Fun in Room 4B

  8. PS- Found you on Farley and you are now in my READER! :)
    PPS- I too thought I was early on the Farley thing! I was number 190!

  9. Tara~ I would have absolutley DIED if I saw that snake in my house! We had one in our apartment when we lived in Cape Canaveral. My husband didn't even tell me until we had moved out. I would have left the state!
    I hope your knee feels better! I got in a little Vitamin D today.. hoping for a few more hours tomorrow.

  10. OH no, I don't do snakes. No way, José! I hope you feel better soon, Tara! Rest up & relax while you can :)

  11. I would have had to sell my house if a snake came in! I would never get another good night's rest. You are lucky your husband was able to get rid of it for you...mine would have been screaming just as loud as me!

  12. AHHHH!! AHHH!! SO scary!! I would be screaming and jumping on the counter! OMG!

    Hippo Hooray for Second Grade!

  14. Oh my goodness that snake is way to large to be inside! Thanks for visiting my blog Tara! I hope that you had a wonderful holiday and that your knee feels better! Use it as a nice excuse to relax! :)

  15. I don't mind snakes, usually... but that guy is pretty ridiculous! Glad someone was around to save you :) Hope your ankle feels better soon!

  16. I have totally thought about buying the Pitch Perfect soundtrack several times. That movie is hilarious!!

  17. I think I would have fainted. I do not like snakes. At all.... Last year a big one somehow got into the school copy room and slithered into the frack between 2 cabinets. The cabinets weren't able to be moved without tearing it all out, so they just waited... No one ever saw it leave, and I never will stand in that corner.

    1. Let me try that again. Frack is supposed to be crack. :)

      Hope your knee feels better soon!

  18. What are y'all feeding those things???? He's huge!

    Hope you start feeling better soon! I waited until THIS MORNING to do my lesson plans. YIKES!


  19. Oh my goodness I would have freaked out! Snakes and I do NOT get along!

    I love Pitch Perfect! A capella music is my favorite too! I listen to the a capella station on Pandora every day!


  20. Eeeeeekkkk!!! I probably would have pulled my back out trying to get away from that snake!! Can you imagine if you didn't see it come in the house?? Where would it be now? Yikes!
    Hope your knee feels better soon!

  21. I hope your knee feels better soon! Yikes!!! I can remember many, many, many years ago my brother finding a huge garter snake in his room. I could not sleep for days afraid there might be more lurking somewhere in our house. My Dad finally figured out that it had crawled up into the pant leg of my brother's jeans as they were hanging out on the clothesline we had in our backyard. My Mom never hung clothes out on the line again.

    Take Care!

  22. OMG....yuck! I hate really...I'm petrified of them. If I found that in my kitchen I don't think I'd ever step foot in my kitchen are so brave. Sorry about your ankle. Hope you're feeling better soon :)

  23. Just saw Pitch Perfect in the car on my road trip to Sonoma. LOVED IT!!
    OUCH OUCH OUCH -- I hope your knee is better today.
    And that snake???? HOLY CRAP, GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. SNAKE?? No way! I would have peed my pants and screamed! I hate snakes with a passion! I had a lizard in my class a few weeks ago and I freaked!!

  25. Holy cow!!!! That snake scares me just from the picture!!!! If it was in my house in real life one of us would have to move out...and while I love my house it might have to be me!!!!! Your leaf raking fiasco gives me yet another reason to avoid helping the hubby rake leaves at all cost!!! :)

  26. I hope there are no more family members around for that snake!!!!!!!!! I hate snakes, I can do spiders, but not snakes!

    P.S. I think you should "rest" for as long as you need - we all need some solid couch time occasionally!

  27. That snake is no joke girl! NO way, no thank you, get it away, lol. I hope your ankle feels better and you get some rest. It's almost the end of the year so you deserve it any way ;o) I always love your blog and ideas and would love for you to check out my April Monthly Market linky and link up!

  28. Oh girl, I would die if I saw a snake like that in my house! EEEKKKK!

  29. YIKES!! I'm not usually afraid of snakes (pets) but I do NOT want to see one coming into my house!!!! Hope your ankle is all better up!

  30. Tara,
    Your advice is spot on!
    That snake would have wigged me out!
    I gave you a shout out on my blog if you want to check it out.
