And now for something COMPLETELY different...

I got to steam clean pee AND blood today.  Oh boy.  The excitement never ends. 

Brewster is going to a new boarding place and I needed to trim his claws.  I did a pretty good job but then I thought, maybe I'll try and them a little shorter...  Poor guy.  He didn't seem to be in pain as he ran around the house leaving a bloody trail.  Oh I got the blood stopped.  Out of corn starch so I used flour.  His bed, which wasn't all that great to begin with, is now a bloody floury soup.  whee!  I will get him a new bed, keep your pants on.

Anyway, I called the vet and they said he should be fine by tomorrow.  I thought we were going to have to cancel our vacation.  Our expensive vacation.  Well, expensive for us.

Anyhoo, as I was attempting to tend to the dog, Madi took it upon herself to get naked and give the floor a liberally dowsing of pee.  I guess it's like my auntie said.  My humor is my strength to deal with all of this.  It's like a comedy of horrors.  Did I say horrors?  I meant, yeah. Horrors.

I've been doing this gratitude thing where I list what I feel blessed by because I feel it's very easy to get caught up in being miserable.  Did that make sense?  I'm trying to listen for Madi.  The tell tale swish swish of a diaper being ripped off.

 My point being, I'm not really trolling for sympathy.  I think it's important to remember that as hard as my life may subjectively be, it could be worse and I don't think it's a bad thing to count my blessings.  Especially when I'm up all night with Madi and I need to do something.
