Days come and go. Some things change. Some things stay the same. Everyday since I can remember, I have hated three things. I have hated cancer, snakes, and onions--in that order. Those things have never changed.

Lets talk about today.
Today was a good day in Biology.
Today I found out that I got a 95% on a difficult test.
Today the career counselor gave me excellent guidance.
Today I finished my homework.
Today I ate some chocolate covered cinnamon bears.
Today I ran four miles and ten sets of stairs.
Today I had a good hair/clothes day.
Today I got my homework done.
Today I helped make dinner for our second counselor and his family.
Today I smiled.

Lets talk about this evening.
This evening everything ran smoothly at work.
This evening I got to hold a baby.
This evening I had two friends come and visit me at work.
This evening I received an unexpected bonus check.
This evening I found the perfect pair of jeans.
This evening I had lots of energy.
This evening I smiled.

Lets talk about tonight.
Tonight we finished with work earlier than expected.
Tonight I helped a guy jump his car.
Tonight the guy's car didn't want to be jumped.
Tonight I drove a guy to his girlfriend's house.
Tonight I had a great phone call.
Tonight my next-door neighbors seem to live too close.
Tonight I learned that my next-door neighbor had a pet snake.
Tonight I learned that the snake was a boa constrictor.
Tonight I thought my next-door neighbor was sick.
Tonight I learned that the snake is not in its cage.
Tonight I learned that next-door neighbor doesn't know where her repulsive pet is.
Tonight I am not smiling, amused, laughing or getting out of bed to use the bathroom.
Tonight I hate snakes, cancer and onions--in that order.

Next week I hate cancer, snakes and onions--in that order.

That was hilarious to see your mind at work. You'll have to let us know when you're "safe"

YIKES!! Good luck with your too-close neighbor finding that repulsive creature and that he finds it in HIS place and ASAP!!!! Sooooooo gross! I'm so sorry. Let us know the outcome.

YOUR BLOG IS SO FUN TO READ! Seriously, who knew you were such a great writer. Just another one of the hidden talents of Rachel!

I would be a complete mess if I knew there was a Boa on the loose. Good luck with that one!

RAchel I have always been terrified of snakes. I cannot even look at pictures of fact I let out a little yell when I scrolled through the picture. I have no idea how you are functioning with a loose snake. Good luck. I hope the snake is found soon and you can get back to your happiness and remain calm.
