I’ve mentioned that Wizard and I have talked about downsizing to a one story house. We really are just talking but this weekend we looked at another housing track. Liked the house, but the location wasn’t for us. So I tell him, “You know, I still like that house up on the hill.”
He stopped what he was doing and said “You know, I’ve been thinking the same thing.”
So this is a one story, totally affordable and the back yard ends at the very top of a hill overlooking the entire town. It’s freaking gorgeous, and not something I’d expect to find in our modest town. However Wizard and I have serious concerns about fire, wild life and SNAKES. I’m terrified of snakes.
But by Sunday morning I’m still thinking of the house and location. So I lure Wizard out to breakfast and then we stop by and look at the location of this house. Still breathtaking…
Later that afternoon we’re talking to our brother-in-law who lives in a home on a hill similar to that one, but in a different town. After telling him about this house, and he’s like, “Don’t let a snake scare you.” Then he proceeds to tell us this story of a long snake that got into their house when they were having a party. Many screams later, the police and fire department arrived (my niece called, she’s not a snake fan either). They caught the snake, bagged it and HANDED THE BAGGED SNAKE to my brother-in-law because they don’t transport snakes.
My brother-in-law takes the bag just as the snake pops his head out.
Right in that moment, just hearing the story I nearly had a heart attack. Long story short, my brother-in-law returned the snake to the forest behind them and I’ve decided I love my current house and never want to move.
How was your weekend?
