Sanity or Patience: choose one.

Do you ever have one of those moments where you think, "HA! I am sane!" Then you step in dog poo with your bare feet and remember it was your idea to get the puppy...?

On Vomit & Sleeping Bags

Hubs is at a meeting, I'm washing strawberries (i.e. throwing half of them out because somehow the ones that looked fine IN the store are all grody by the time I get them home) for our camping trip, Monsoon is playing in his room. Or so I thought.

"Uh-oh, Mommy. I got my shoes dirty!"

Odd, since he is in fact inside our house and although I'm not the best housekeeper, there's nothing I can think of that could dirty his shoes unless he's stuck them in the toilet. Crap, he's probably stuck them in the toilet.

Nope. I walk into the living room, which is now covered in tiny shoe-print shaped mud. Nope, not mud. Dog vomit.

So I mentioned that I'm not a great housekeeper... I managed to keep the profanities in my head (how hard it was), clean him up and go back to packing. 20 minutes later....

"Uh-oh, Mommy. That fing fell in there!"

CA-RAP. I'm an idiot. I cleaned up the boy and went right back to packing - leaving the vomit tracks all over the living room. Seriously, I forgot. How does that happen? It happens sometimes in circle houses where there are two routes to the kitchen and I take the one where I don't look at the vomit tracks. So what fell in where, you ask?

My husband's sleeping bag fell into the pile of vomit. It didn't so much "fall" in as I'm pretty sure it was pushed. Profanities not so much only in my head anymore.

What am I doing about it? Told the boy to go play in his room while I cleaned it up, and came in here to blog about it. Yeah, I should probably go clean up the mess before Hubs gets home.

I'm not the best house cleaner either. In fact I think they'd fire me if I ever worked in that industry...if looking at my house were part of the interview.

Amy said...

That's what I do when a big mess happens -- abandon it promptly so I can get the camera, take pictures and post about it if it's an interesting mess.
Really, I'm sorry, though. Dog vomit sucks. We just had a bought with it two mornings ago. The toddler ran into the kitchen and told me the dog pooped out of his mouth.
Umm, yeah, lol.

Some days it's just like sick and wrong attacks you without any warning. Poor you.

Why is it that the things that should not make us blog and laugh are precisely the ones that do.

Oh man. The joys of being a mother! It makes me kind of glad I don't have a dog. Brings back memories of when I did.

good day bros. I'm actually into shoes and I was digging as far as something that singular brand. The prices for the velcros are all over 190 bucks on every site. But finally I base this area selling them as a remedy for half price. I really love these [url=http://www.shoesempire.com]prada sneakers[/url]. I will absolutely order those. what can you tell me about these?
