Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

My dog is old and peeing on the floor all the time and I hate the smell of it and the cleaning it up and the grossness of it, but I hate the idea of what comes next even more.

The other dog runs away any time you let her out and so we keep her closed up in our room. Sometimes she makes a nest on my bed(which is so not okay with me), but most of the time she makes these ridiculous guttural noises that sound like a dying cow.

Also, my 3 year old is in full 3yo mode today and it makes me want to scream. But if I scream I will be doing exactly what he is doing and I’m supposed to be the grown up here. Sometimes being a grown up sucks. Except when I want ice cream at 2am and no one tells me no. Then it’s not so bad. It’s also pretty great when I don’t have to have anyone help me with basic hygiene like brushing my teeth and wiping my own ass.

We wash clothes non-stop and yet can never manage to get all the laundry done at once, which is frustrating to no end. The same is true for clean bathrooms. And dishes. Sometimes I wish I had a magical fairy in my pocket that I could take out and shake a few times and wherever her fairy dust landed, it would be clean. Okay, I wish that all the time.

My car is making a weird noise, even though I just had it serviced. And it’s not the taking it in that bothers me, it’s the fact that they don’t have a rental car large enough for us to use and so we’re stuck in the waiting room, which is also not large enough for us.

Oh, and an ant bit my pinkie toe and it itches like wild.

I feel like Alexander and I’m annoyed that not everyone will get that reference.
It should be required reading.
Even in Austrailia.
