Gross Factor

Another day ended, another dawn just over the horizon. Today was a long, long day.

I was woken up way too early by the puppy. We got this crate for him to sleep in. We set it up with blanket, toys, and treats. Puppy doesn’t like it. He’s far too social and dependent on others to allow himself to be subjected to nocturnal isolation. It doesn’t help that all 3 cats taunt him. Naturally this means puppy sleeps in my bed, squishing himself right up against me.

This morning I woke up to the dog making a few weird gurpy sounds. Before I was up enough to react, puppy up chucked at the foot of my bed. Freaking gross. It gets grosser though. If you are queasy and squeamish you may not want to read this. Rascal vomited what looked like rubber bands up. As I began the clean up process said rubber bands started squiggling. Yeah. Seriously. 

So my dog has worms. This morning was pretty putrid. It involved taking puppy out numerous times to the yard where he number 2ed quite frequently and the worms literally vacated his rear. So that was freaking nasty. There is not enough sanitizer in the world today to make me feel properly clean. I could shower with bleach and it still wouldn’t be enough.

We have a vet appointment next week, but if time allows, I’d like to bump it up.

The Man and I had been butting heads all last week. I hate that. He’s my best friend and I feel all out of sorts when we don’t get along. I’m a Leo and my over sized ego won’t allow my hurt feelings to linger very long.

We were aiming for a hike on Sunday, but ended up just going for a car ride through the mountains. I don’t know what it is, but there is something about driving that makes it easier to talk – really talk. So we did. It feels like we’re at a good place now so I’m psyched about that. Hopefully the peace will remain.

Work has been a shit show lately. Every week it feels worse and worse. I had no crew on the schedule for tonight. Yup. My job is to run a kitchen with no crew. What a joke. On top of it we were out of pretty much every ingredient imaginable. So no crew and no food. I really really need a better job!
