Dear Diary...I mean blog...
It's been one year since my last post. It's not that a lot hasn't happened. It's just that I haven't taken the time to write any of it down.
In a nutshell...we re-did the yard for a backyard BBQ rehearsal dinner. Finished restoring our very own popcorn popper/with cart! Actually sold a fish tank. Our oldest son got married. Our youngest son had some health issues. We experienced our last college football season watching the youngest play. I had surgery. Terry found out he has high blood pressure. Hosted a surprise birthday party for a good friend. I realized I am a bad parent because none of the pictures of the kids are organized - so I am now figuring out how to create scrapbooks. Finally culminating in the major event of this week.
The dog pooped her diaper.
What? Your dog wears diapers? Seriously?
Well yes. You see I am also a bad dog parent. Sophie has not been spayed and now, as an eight year old, I can't see the need. It's not like she ever goes on a date, so we don't need to worry about "teen" pregnancy issues or anything. But twice a year, she has to wear a doggie diaper with a sanitary pad.
This is where the story begins....she woke us up at 3 a.m. this past Wednesday. Terry yelled at her to "go lay back down". I think she did, but then I heard something so I got up at around 3:30, and once I get out of bed, she gets up, (sometimes she sleeps in Matt's room). Before I even got to the kitchen and turned on the light, I could smell it. Really smell it. And then I stepped on something squishy. Yep. Just like a two year old, she blew out the side. Yuck right?
So, I cleaned up that spot, (and my foot, but not in that order), and then took off the diaper and let her outside. Now what do I do? I grabbed a couple plastic grocery bags, sort of shook out the rest of it and then tied the bag shut and put it outside. It was garbage pick up day, so I figured I'd put it in the garbage bin once I got back from gym class at 6:30. I then took the icky diaper downstairs and washed it out.
But wait! I should check her. Well, needless to say, by 4 am, she was getting a "sponge bath", I had found two more spots in the living room, and by 4:30, I was cleaning carpet and searching for more piles of poop.
By 5 a.m. I had to leave the house for class, and when I got home, I was greeted by a very upset husband. "Why the hell didn't you tell me she @#$# in the house?!!" Well, I put it outside and was going to put it in trash, and I kinda ran out of time. "Well just so you know, I had to put the bags of @#$@# you had in the back yard (poop picked up on Sunday) in the garbage, and I grabbed that one, and had to try and smash it down, but the smell was so bad there is now bacon and eggs in the yard by the fence." EWE.
I'll clean up the poop, but regurgitated bacon and eggs is something else entirely.
"There's also a smell downstairs, you better make sure she didn't poop anywhere else". GEEZ.
After investigating, (apparently sometime after I left for class), she decided to pee in front of the TV. Now I have to rent the "Big Green Machine" and clean the carpets this weekend.
Apparently she did not go back to bed...and...
No Matt, she did not poop on your bed.
