The makings of a nightmare…

Today was not a good day. The guy came to fix electrical because none of the new circuits are working and he does not know why.  I am sure it is something simple.  He tore out the ceiling and found these things.  EWWWL!!!

This would be a rat skeleton and uggggh it’s 12″ long!! sooooo disgusting…ewwwwl

and another snake skin or should I say another small snake skin…

I ALSO FOUND MORE NESTS so I asked him if he knew what these eggs are.  He said ROACHES and he said you see all those dots on the wall, what do you think that is?  I said mud and dirt coming down from the roof?  He so no…. ROACH DOO DOO

WHAT???? Gagging in mouth!  That is so gross!  Omg I am ready to tear all the walls out now!! I am so glad I never saw them or I would have freaked the heck out!  I have to wonder at what point was the house infested with roaches, rats and snakes and who got rid of them all? or are they still here and I just haven’t seen them.  Oh wait….I did see a snake in the basement last year and  he got trapped in the wall by some expanding foam…hmmmmm I wonder if above snake is that one?  My 87 year of neighbor told me I should have called her and she would have come over here and chopped him up proper style.  I laughed.  She said don’t laugh cause now you don’t know where he is at.  (I just noticed I said “he” when talking about a snake…LOL that wasn’t intentional…I don’t think).  Anyway she had me paranoid for a while.   Oh God don’t tell me I am going to have to break down and get a cat.  I HATE CATS.

I do remember when I first moved here I saw a roach and my theory is if you see one there are thousands hiding so I went out and brought 12 bombs and let them off before I went to work the next day.  I bombed the roof, basement and every room in the house.  When I came home from work I found nothing on the floor so I figured I panicked for nothing. I actually was kind of disappointed because I wanted to feel like I spent my money on those bombs wisely.  I remember bombing twice. Well apparently those jokers used to live here!!  They are not welcome in my house…oh heck to the no.There were three previous owners.  I can’t even ask anyone about whether or not the house was infested when the owners they knew lived here.  SOMEBODY HAD AN INFESTATION!!!.  Its so disgusting and embarrassing.  Well I am not embarrassed cause they (the pests) aren’t here with me…not to my knowledge anyway.

Ugggh I have the heebie-jeebies thinking about it.

Also the electrical outlets are still not working.  I think I am going to have to get someone else to check that out.  I hope this does not turn out to be a nightmare.

I should have known I was going to get bad news after seeing how I parked my car this morning.

and even Bear messed up today.  Why would anyone put a garbage bag on the porch with food in it and there is a dog on the porch?  That was just thoughtless.  I couldn’t even spank Bear for making this mess cause he only did what any dog would do…

  1. Okay, nothing scares me more than snakes, but the rat skeleton…((shivers)). Just be glad he found them and not you!

    I sure hope they find and fix the electrical problem tomorrow.

    You will get through this!


    • Eectrician coming tomorrow. If I found that stuff I would never step foot in the basement again. I hope I never trip a breaker at night and have to go in the basement with a flashlight….ain’t happenin captain.


    • I hope it is atleast 50 years prehistoric…OMG I will be paying attention to every sound at night now LOL


  2. You are amazing, because if I even HEARD there were things like that in my walls, I would have died, but you are close enough to take pictures – crazy!!!


  3. Oh my goodness! We found a broom and a few screwdrivers in the walls, but if anyone found anything else, they’ve had enough sense to keep it from me! Don’t worry about getting a cat; instead of hunting inside, they’ll try to hunt outside and bring “treats” inside. That’s how we wound up with snakes in our basement when I was younger.
