You won't BELIEVE what we ran into this morning on the patio! An 8 foot long skin of a python....who then we found close by. Then later on we found another one. The house resembles a treehouse and very open which leaves a lot of spaces for things to come in and out at their will. I don't even know if snakes are the worse thing we are dealing with. The son Delaney has lice from school, there are ticks all over where we are working outside and spiders as big as your face.
I think I would rather be bitten by a snake while having lice and ticks than have one leg of the spider touch me.
You ask me how I am dealing with it? I have developed tunnel vision. The trick is to not look around anything other than where you need to go or get. The other trick is if you feel a tickle, shake or brush it off without looking at what it is and then just move positions without looking back. It is the only way.
