Do you have a dog? Have you ever considered giving it a haircut? Because, really, how hard could it be? Turns out it’s very hard. Not just hard work, but almost impossible to make it look decent. Poor Maggie looks like she got in a fight with a blind pair of scissors.
She just looked so hot.
I thought I’d be doing her a favor.
Now I’m embarrassed to take her on a walk. So I make the kids do it.
Here are some random thoughts that have passed through my head today:
You’d think that after wearing underwear for several years that I wouldn’t have to remind my sons every day to change them. Honestly, I have to ask each day if they have on clean undies. They give me this look like I’m asking them how to build a rocket ship. Which is the non-verbal way of saying, “no”.
- If you have a child that likes to shove tiny toys down the shower drain, you might wonder how to get all the tiny toys out without having to call a plumber. You may come up with the brilliant idea of putting the vacuum hose down the drain. It is a brilliant idea, except that there is also water down the drain. And once you suck up water in the vacuum, it will take on a mildewy smell that may just linger forever. A wet/dry shop vac would be much better in said situation.
- It’s a good idea not to assume that you put the gas bill on auto-pay when you actually didn’t. And then, silly you, miss two billing cycles and the gas gets turned off. And there is no hot water (good thing you’re all smelly from working out extra hard this morning), or fire in the stove (try to remember before you crack the eggs into the frying pan), or dry clothes (you knew you were going to regret getting gas appliances, didn’t you?) But the gas man will be showing up sometime before 9 pm (!!!)
- Having a dog with diarrhea is really awful. Because the poop is never in the entry hall or someplace with tile. Nope, always on the carpet. Dogs are really, truly a pain.
