The other day we went to get our pets that were at a pet sitters
home in Dubuque. Traveling with 2 screaming cats and a restless dog is not fun especially when you have a 45 minute drive ahead of you. Our cat Maddie, drools excessively when she is stressed out and she was standing in a puddle in her carrier. A few miles from home a horrific scent made its way through the Tahoe. It was like breathing in toxic waste; it burned the eyes and throat. Our dog Charlie was blamed for this horrific event and the windows were immediately rolled down. After a few minutes the smell did not dissipate and I began to think, “Did the dog fart or did the cat shit?” words that no one should ever have to mutter. Turns out the cat shit! Yeah that was a lot of fun to clean up.
I’ve been doing a lot of “vacation” laundry lately and yesterday
I found something that left me scratching my head. Rocks, toys and even food are commonly found in my son’s clothes and because we had been on vacation I figured I would have at least one unique find but this time I stumbled upon something I wasn’t expecting. Inside one of my son’s socks was a wad of synthetic Easter Grass. He claims he doesn’t know where it came from or how it got in his sock. So was this sock hiding somewhere since Easter or did he find the grass somewhere and if so where? All of that aside, why would he put it in his sock? I’ll never figure this kid out.
Yesterday in the car Mac and I were discussing different options
for supper and she mentioned frozen pizza. Will spoke up immediately from the back seat and said, “We could die if we eat that, Dad told me.” We love Tombstone Pizza’s and eat them all the time so once again his words puzzled me. I began asking questions and he began crying, “Mom, please don’t make us eat that.” Turns out he thought “frozen pizza” meant we were going to eat it in the frozen state and not cook it. “We cook frozen pizza Bud, we don’t eat it frozen.” “Then why do you say we are having frozen pizza for supper when it’s not frozen, why don’t you just say we are having pizza?” I guess he has a point.
Have a wonderful day!
