I didn’t really want her

It’s time for another post about cornsnakes! Nobody cares, but I do. You’ll appreciate them sooner rather than later, trust me. This morning, my son ‘helped’ me clean some snake enclosures. He doesn’t really help. It’s more of a hassle having him around, because he hands me over anything I could potentially need (but mostlyContinue reading “I didn’t really want her”

It seems like just yesterday that I was in Italy for work, but here I am, four weeks later, in New Orleans, Louisiana. Again for work.
