A Tale of Two Mice

Okay, this is a fluff piece, but it's something I wanted to share.
Most of you know that I have a snake named Rex. The other night I went to buy two mice to feed Rex. I put the first mouse in and Rex ate him as normal. I put the second mouse in and Rex didn't seem at all interested in him. After a minute they just started sniffing each other and then that was it. For whatever reason Rex was giving this particular mouse a pardon.
What to do now. I couldn't just kill the poor little mouse. It's one thing to let the snake eat him so he can survive, but it's another thing just to kill the poor little mouse for no reason. Should we let him go? I didn't feel good about the either, he was born in captivity, how would he survive out in the wild?
Okay, I know some of you may not see my conundrum here, it would be pretty simple for most people, I guess, but I'm not most people. So....we now have a pet mouse named Pardon. And you know what? He is so cute, and very entertaining to watch. Dave and I sat for quite a while last night just watching him run around in his little wheel. He's so cool in fact, that this week I'm going to go and get him a friend.
I will post pictures later for those who might be interested in seeing our little rodents. :)

Life is Good....Busy, but Good!

Hi everyone. I know I haven't posted much of anything important lately. Work is super busy right now with Christmas parties, and since I am in charge of them from start to finish, I have been working a lot. When I'm not working I'm just taking care of the kid, making sure he is at school, and on time, so I don't get put in jail....more on that in a future post.
I do have some exciting things to post about, but they will have to wait until I have the time to devote to them that they deserve.
I hope everyone is enjoying this Merry Season and not stressing too much about all the crap that doesn't really matter. Enjoy your family and friends and remember that it's not about how much you can spend, but how much you love them!
