Good Bye Good Dog: Be Good, Watch the House, Ok? Whuvyou

5 AM:  I have a screaming, snotty, teething Teddy on my hip.  I’m slipping down the stairs in my socks. . .feels cold. . Thankfully, Chris has already made coffee.  Vigorously blinking to keep my contacts comfortably floating, I head to the place by the back door where we keep Satan’s Lap Hound’s gigantic stainless water bowl, lest Teddy attempt

Dear Dog Walker

Dear 23 Year-Old Male Dog Walker, I want to apologize for the other day.  I’m sure I scared the living daylights out of you. I just want you to know how truly sorry I am.  Please allow me to explain. . . We needed to leave town Friday night so we could get to my sister’s baby shower.  I had

It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like. . .Holiday Hell

Now that Halloween is behind us, it’s time to bust out the egg nog, cookies, and tacky tree lights and get our Holiday on. . .for the next 2+ damned months. I’m dreading it.  I’ve always hated the way retailers and merchandisers hop on the holiday band-wagon so damned soon.  It drives me crazy to see the holiday decorations out

In Which Reluctant Mother Goes From a Little God Joke to Actually Being God’s Little Joke

For those of you just checking in here’s a quick recap:  My Husband is out-of-town for the week so I’m unattended with the kid, 2 dogs, and 3 cats for the week.  The timing worked well for my Mother and Stepfather to visit for a couple of days earlier this week.  And just before they visited, I made a trek

Never Allow Satan’s Lap Hound To Attend Your Supper Party

Last night we had the pleasure of hosting our neighbors for dinner.  In attendance were the Young Fun Couple, newly engaged Christmas Tree Guy and his fiancée, Chris, me, and rather unfortunately, two dogs and two of our three cats. I mostly enjoy entertaining.  What I certainly do not enjoy is the unpredictability of entertaining with so many damned pets
