An Unwanted Visitor and A Giveaway!!!!!!!!!!!!

This afternoon I was running errands before going to my school to work for a few hours and attend our New  Parent Orientation night when I received a voice mail from our school secretary that was really BIZARRE! She asked if she needed to call animal control and I just new she had the wrong number but I was soooo wrong! I called back to find out that she had received a message that there was a SNAKE in my classroom!  To say I started freaking out is an understatement! My bestie who teaches across the hall had tried to get a hold of me but was unable to reach me so she sent out a message to everyone with this picture and the title, Mrs. Livers' has a visitor! I called her ASAP and was hoping that this was all a joke and not only was it not a joke but she and two other teachers had mustered up enough courage to take care of the snake for me!  I believe more than ever in divine intervention because if I had found the snake on my own it would have taken me until Christmas to step foot back in my room alone!!!!  I owe all three of these ladies a big favor or two! Needless to say the afternoon was not productive at all!  After orientation a few of us when out for dinner and had a few laughs about the whole thing!  

On that note, thanks to all of my new followers I have reached the big 30 and I get to host my first giveaway!  It's not an original but definitely one we can all appreciate so close to school!

Thank you again for everyone for all the comments and encouragement as I am starting my new blogging adventure! Have a fabulous Wednesday!


  1. Yowza! I am actually a snake girl (I would love to have one as a PET in my room! I know...) but I don't think I'd be okay with having one in there that I wasn't expecting! You have some terrific - and very brave- colleagues!
