Break for the Weekend

Well, Thursday is feeding day, and the males are getting pulled out of female tubs for a little break.

And of course, I am gearing up for my own little break of the weekend.

I can't wait to be able to slog around for a while, considering things are gaining steam towards the end of the year.

I love the Holidays, and I am very excited for Thanksgiving and Christmas, but there is not enough time to handle everything that needs to be done before the snow sets in.

Snow is a bad sight for shipping snakes, so most things are put on hold for a few months until the thaw.
Many people scramble to get things shipped before the Holidays (Christmas) too. Considering the mass amounts of packaging that tends to be exchanged over the month of December, this allows for more losses within the system. And losses of snake packages could mean life and death.

So this means buy now, or wait until the thaw... or live in California or a place that doesn't get snow!

Which is a welcome break for me to not have to run to Fedex every couple days, and to be able to just relax a bit, but it would be nice to send out a few more critters for Christmas.

This weekend is a weekend of accumulation. I have to get things managed and clean, as well as get things moved around. The males get the break for the weekend, and I get to think more about what goes where.

But it will be all good. I can't wait to be able to sleep in, dream of the upcoming turkey day that is creeping up fast, and the Holiday Season, which has already hit all major stores like a ton of bricks since the last week of October.


Yes, Grinchy as I may be, I get worse as the day comes closer... I get more tired of it the longer I hear it. I try and avoid it now as much as I can so that I'm not a raging ball of Grinch by December 24th. December 25th? Sure! I can appreciate it then... Not two months before, however.

I digress...

We were talking snakes, right?

Have a great weekend, my friends!

So, males needing breaks! George the black pastel has been paying so much attention to his girlfriend that he's got a bit of dried blood around his vent. I gave him a week off, and then he went and did it again.

And I know the het lavenders would do the same thing if I let them.

How much is too much? Should I drop to once a month for a while? They CLEARLY want to be with their girls, but I don't want them hurting themselves...
