  • What a year!!! Also with Suri pics. :D

    This has been a year. It seems like every year lately has been THE year until the next year pops up..lol

    We spontaneously bought another house in October. Most of you already know that though. We decided to just "look" in September not really being serious. I called the bank to see if it was even possible and we completely fell in love with the first house we looked at. Made an offer and moved a month later. We are mostly settled in. Still have some unpacking and organizing to do but I am tired now with it. The other house is still not sold yet so we have 2 mortgages. Yikes. As a result, I picked up a part time job after I get off of teaching. I am now tutoring after school and we get home late. This will go on until May. I don't want to have to worry about finances and I LOVE my new house. It is worth it for me. This results with me not having as much time as I would like though.

    I am getting ready to pair up some snakes. I decided to wait until January to pair because of the move in the beginning of October. Hoping they are settled in well enough for breeding. If it doesn't seem like it will work, I will pull them out and separate. The snakes do seem less stressed in the new house though. I will be pairing Surinames, Guyanas, and a BCI pair. The BCI pair is going in late since we moved during the breeding season and I wanted to let them acclimate. Don't know if they will breed or not but we will see.

    I took some pictures of Romeo yesterday. I can't get good pictures of him in this house. I haven't really taken much snake pictures since I moved in. The lighting is horrible for snake pictures and being rainy outside didn't help. There are pictures of him in 3 different rooms of the house with 3 different lighting. I tried putting him on my table because that has the most "natural" light coming in from the sliding glass door but since it was dark and dreary, I don't know if that worked in my favor. (Yes, I disinfected my table).

    Sammy had put Romeo up and I took pictures of that whole process as well. The lighting upstairs in the snake room is really bad though.

    I hope you enjoy the pictures.








    This picture shows his colors the best. His saddles are not "brown" but a reddish brown. They are gorgeous.













    Now it is Sammy's turn to put him back in his cage all by herself.

    Awesome photos, I was wondering where you were 'hiding'? Congrats on the new house (if not the 2 mortgages, ouch!) and I must say that's the FIRST time I've ever heard someone justify a new house
    because their snakes are now less stressed!? R-O-F-L-! Your daughter's adorable! (as if you didn't know?)

      Glad to hear you guys are getting settled in and loving the new house. I love Romeo's saddles, the color and shape are excellent! You guys take care and don't be a stranger.

        Hey! Sometimes LIFE happens and we have to just roll with it. I'm so happy you are all getting settled into the new house and hopefully the old one will sell soon for you so you can come back and play a little more often! Sammy did well with her first 'return'! I adore this photo too!



        Definitely keep my phone number handy, I need to keep in touch with you to let you know how Melandru is doing.

                [MENTION=18031]Kung Fu Joe[/MENTION] It isn't green anymore.

                [MENTION=7657]Pandorasdad[/MENTION] Thanks Sean! I know, I haven't been on FB hardly at all. I really am not in a FB mood. If you noticed, I didn't post all these photos on FB either.

                [MENTION=7407]zamora[/MENTION] I am so happy at the new house. Glad to hear about the Suri's from you and yes, keep me informed. I can't wait for the other house to sell. No clue how long it will take but I will have 2 jobs the rest of this school year. Hoping it will sell before the school year is out so I don't have to get another job next school year as well.

                [MENTION=13094]Avalanche[/MENTION] I absolutely LOVE his saddles as well. He is just perfection. I hope he starts breeding. He is just hanging out with her at the moment.

                [MENTION=13772]Noelle7206[/MENTION] To justify this even more, they seem less stressed because they aren't striking the glass as much. They use to strike the glass everytime we entered the snake room and now it is just during feeding and the random startled strike.

                  That really IS awesome! "If the snakes ain't happy, ain't nobody happy!" Let's hope they continue in this positive trend, it must be the right place!
