So yesterday Richard and Nathaniel risked life and limb to clean out the gutters attached to the pool screen. Richard did mess up his hand pretty badly. Got a blister that was larger than a half dollar. He did take pics but they really are too gross to show. I was nervous about them being up there but while they were cleaning out the gutter the worst that could happen was for them to fall, and if they broke thru the screen, they'd end up in the pool.
Me, I definitely took one for the team. I was spraying the hose up to help clean up the gutters.. took one step too many backwards and in the pool I went ~ clothes, shoes and all. Fortunately they were crocs. This is me after my little dunk in the pool
We spotted this little guy just down the street from our house. He is only about 4' and didn't seem to mind getting his picture taken. As you can see, he is absolutely in someones back yard.
And for one last "eww" picture. Nathaniel fished this guy out of the pool. He's a salamander which is sort of a cross between a lizard and a snake. I don't mind the little lizards (as long as they don't jump on me) but these guys really give me the creeps.
Kids went back to school today (Yeah!) and soccer practiced resumed tonight as well (double yeah). Hopefully the kids will sleep good and I've got a busy day tomorrow. Gotta vote (local election) and then a PTO meeting in the afternoon.
