There aren’t going to be any photos embedded in this post, and I think that’s really for the best.
So first off, how are you guys? Hope you could glean something from the other days’ post on hydration. I definitely am still on the hunt for a canteen that is a little larger than the Yeti, but prettier. Sorry Yeti, I really do love you, you’re just not very feminine. And I need all the help I can get. I am just not that cute lately. Well sometimes, but not today. Today I just stretched a tee over the bump, and let me tell you what, that does not do anyone any favors. Anyhoo, let me know if you have any suggestions. I’m kind of eyeing the Corksicle 60-oz, or maybe even the Hyrdoflask? I would love to hear what your thoughts are on these, or if you have another suggestion! Think sustainable people! No plastic water bottles if I can help it!
So after a loooong day on Tuesday. And I mean long, cause I got up for 6am to practice the newest Body Pump release with a few folks, and then I came home and napped, headed into work, and then headed back OUT to a work event, I was not feeling very social. The event ended up being much better than I thought it was – I mostly don’t want to socialize because I feel big and fat and I don’t drink obviously, but it was great, and there was food left over for us to take.
I took some home to Austin, and played Pokemon in the Uber the entire ride home. But when I came into the house, it hit me. The smell of like, a literal animal shelter absolutely slapped me in the face. I was scared to look, and I peeked around the back of the couch, and the best way I could describe what I saw was that there was an absolutely atomic explosion. All over the floor. Over pretty much, every square inch of the floor.
I called Austin out to help me assess/recover the great room area, and the look on his face confirmed how bad it was. I put Coco out (we determined pretty early on she was responsible), and started to clean up. Until we realized that Coco probably needed some cleaning up too.
I grabbed a thingie of baby wipes (thanks kid), we put her in the bathtub, Austin sort of held her down, and we tried to scrub her. Until we realize that the situation at hand sort of called for scissors.
Side note: I am really sorry, I am trying to describe this without going into a really vile level of detail.
So I grabbed scissors, all the while Coco was miserably attempting to nip at Austin with the remaining teeth she has, and set about cutting out some of the more problematic areas on her tail. Luckily, poodles don’t shed, and her hair grows like a crazy person’s, so she looks just fine. In the process of all of that, we accidentally also turned on the shower, so mid-scrub/cut, water starting pouring onto both of our heads.
We topped it off by putting Coco BACK outside, and then mopping for a decade.
Austin didn’t really want the dinner I brought home after that. I don’t blame him. Not one bit.
Please, for the love of all things holy, tell me about your pets. And tell me you didn’t spend your Tuesday night scrubbing their butts.
