Let me tell you about the craptastic day I had the other day. It all started at 3 a.m. in the morning. I had been having "tummy troubles" all night and on my upteenth trip to the bathroom, the dogs insisted they needed to go out. As I went to bring them inside, I realized the door was locked. It dawned on me that earlier I had installed a new "smart lock" that can automatically lock itself. I stood there, increasingly panicking as I knocked away on my own front door in pajamas and shoeless. My daughter apparently wasn't waking up. I needed to go knock on her window. Luckily, there was a pair of sopping wet sneakers on the porch I left there because I stepped in dog doo. After a huge self pep talk, I slipped the sneakers on and tripped, in the dark, wet and cold, around to the side of the house where my daughter's room was. Thankfully, she woke up and let me in. Time for another dozen trips to the bathroom!
Next, I am awoken with the news that in the school parking lot my daughter skidded into a fence with her dad's pickup. She's fine, but the truck's going to need at least $1,000 in repair. FML
A few hours later, my editor asks me if I can finish my article I submitted. Huh? Turns out WordPress somehow reverted my finished article to an earlier draft that I had saved. Sigh.
Ate dinner alone because my husband is on a business trip and my youngest is tripping about wrecking her dad's truck.
Ate a whole pack of chocolate wafer cookies and a bowl of cream of wheat (don't @ me!) for dessert.
The whole evening the dogs keep making horrendous farts, so I keep taking them outside, thinking they may need to make a number 2. Bases covered, I start to get ready for bed.
Then I smell the gut wrenching smell that no pet owner wants to smell. I start turning on all the lights in the house, looking for the source of the smell. There was not one, but two crap piles. Each one was the size of our cat. I kid you not. Our dogs are Huskies, yall. I curse the dogs very lives I scoop up handful after handful of dog crap with my hand covered in a double-bagged Walmart sack. It all goes into the trash. Then I had to run outside with it in the rain. 😭🤣
