‘What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men …… That is what love looks like.’ - St. Augustine

One of THOSE Days..

I'm having one of those days. The ones that suck. The ones where everything seems to be plotting against you. But I am making myself blog about this day, because I tend to not want to show my grumpy side, but it exists. Just ask Anastasia! I need to validate the yucky unloveable part of myself, too, right? So here is my day thus far. I will list the joyful events in chronological order:

1. Up all night with the most violent stomach bug known to man. You know the kind: the I'm-chained-to-the-toilet variety.
2. Puck (cat #1) puked all over my pillow and sheets.
3. Matilda (dog #2) tried to eat it.
4. Dog #2, angry that she was not allowed to eat said puke, found the litter box. And ate to her hearts content. (can you say GROSSSSS???)
5. Got a never-ending nosebleed while cleaning up puke and dog poop.
6. Slipped in dog pee while running to the bathroom because of event #1 (see above)
7. Found out I am out of one of my meds and the pharmacy is now closed.
8. Get talked into driving Anastasia to the local sandwich shop in my pajamas. Run into everyone I know while looking like death.
9. Send Anastasia into Starbucks for me, and wait SEVENTEEN MINUTES for her to come out.
10.Have a 'bathroom call' while sitting in the car waiting for Anastasia for SEVENTEEN MINUTES. Regret going out even more.
11. Drive home quickly, only to find that my coffee is COLD.
12. Come into house to find Henry ( Dog #1) had gotten into the trash. And ate disgusting things.
13. Cry.

So, that's my day thus far and it's only 4pm. And I only rolled out of bed at 10:30am because of said bug. So, I managed to jampack in ALL that great stuff into only five hours!

Can you say vacation?


  1. I'm sorry-- I didn't know that the bug could be passed over the internet. Do you suppose the 17 minutes is connected with the coffee being cold??? I hope you feel better soon. Oh, and you're nicer than I am. I still haven't been willing to take Daughter anyplace.

  2. Oh no! I'm so sorry. I guess the day can only get bettter from there right? :)

  3. Oh Boy!
    Crummy days are the worst. And nothing tops stomach crap, and dog poop! MAN!!!
    Tomorrow will be better...no place to go but up!

  4. Matilda sounds like a very helpful doggy...gross...but helpful and now you don't have to change the litterbox! LOL My dogs did the same thing when we had kitties. Nasty. I hope the rest of your day goes much better.

  5. OK .. when you get better this will be funny.. You made me laugh. Wishing you a speedy recovery, and nothing else GROSS and inconveniently emergent :)
