On another note... it has been 3 months and 4 days since I quit smoking... YES! I don't miss it one single bit. Well, maybe when I'm hanging with friends and drinking good drinks late at night... then I miss it. BUT... I am SO GLAD that I quit smoking. I feel better, I don't smell like smoke, I'm not wasting all that money, my kids stopped nagging me to quit smoking. It's great. YEAH to 3 months and 4 days!
This morning was a crazy morning. First a bit of good news... Skye made it through the entire night without having to go outside! YES! Bad news - he walked to the first green he saw, which was my wool rug in the living room, and peed. UG. Then, the "kitchen dogs" (Otis the Dachshund and Stinky the Chihuahua) made a HUGE mess in the kitchen. (You see they are 'puppy-pad trained' - they refuse to go outside regularly.) SO, my day started with picking up dog messes from all three dogs. I put Skye in the kennel so I could clean up messes, make some tea, etc. As I was walking down stairs to get Skye out of his kennel, I noticed that the cat puked up his food on the floor at the front door. Cleaned that up. Then went to get Skye... he pooped mushy puppy poop all over his kennel. UG! He had poop all over his kennel and all over him. Kennel went outside to get hosed off and Skye went to the bathroom for his first bath. UG.
Now, I envisioned Skye's first bath to be momentous... you know camera, everyone ooo-ing and aahhh-ing, tails wagging. Not the "OMg I can't believe I am having this kind of morning" bath with a puppy whining the whole time. Oh well - this is real life - right? :) Needless to say, I have a clean dog but no a photo of the occasion to share.
My house is back to normal (for the moment). Messes are cleaned up, dogs are cleaned and fed, cat is outside, laundry is running, kids are off to school... ahhhhh... :)
Here is a bit of Skye "eye-candy"... Happy Friday!!
