What Else Are Ya' Gonna Do?

I really didn't have much for the What I Learned This Week carnival. Well, I do but it is turning into a post that needs some editing and I just wasn't ready to publish it. But as luck would have it...life just happens.

So, I learned in 10 minutes today that...

If you have a puppy and are not taking him outside to go to the potty about every 5 MINUTES he will pee on your living room rug.

AND while you are fetching the Nature's Miracle from upstairs where he peed earlier that day, you will discover the two piles of poop in the corners of the play room that he left there sometime.

I suppose you'll never know if one belonged your older dog because he's decided that why should he be the only one going outside in the snow to pee and poop. Do you think he is smart enough to know that the puppy will most likely get blamed? hmmmm.

So, you will head back downstairs to let the scolded puppy back in the house from the cold outside and while you are cleaning up the pee from the beginning of this story, your new puppy WILL knock over the TV tray that holds your sick son's chicken and dumplings and Sprite all over the living room floor where the pee is anyway.

About this time - okay at this exact moment - your sweet husband will call to ask how things are going and what you made for dinner.

You will learn at this point to just laugh. Because what else are ya' gonna do?

Well, you could blog about it. It definitely helps me!

My friend said I should have named this post "If you Give a Mom a Puppy." Dang. I am going to have to consult her before publishing anymore - that would have been such a great title!

Anyway for more great lessons learned hop on over to Musings of a Housewife.

Oh my, I am SO SORRY, those days stink! Is he bringing home pizza for dinner?

Janel@Dandelion Dayz said...

No pizza, but he did bring home flowers. AND gave me $$$ with instructions to get out of the house to get a mani/pedi. Sweet man. Smart man. Love that man.

I decided to wait until tomorrow for the mani/pedi and enjoy time with this crazy little family.

We were having leftovers luckily.

Repeat after me...finding the joy, finding the joy, finding the joy. :)

Just read your comment - that certainly makes up for the day. Enjoy your mani/pedi!

And once again, I am glad I do not have a pet! :-) Those kinda days are THE WORST. Ugh. Hope tomorrow is better!

Janel, I love this post, and it's all so true!!!
I would have made him bring home dinner too, thank goodness for leftovers.
He does get points for the mani/pedi suggestion.....he's a keeper!

Windy said...

Your post reminded me why I always say NO to a pet around here:)

Oh boy, you sure had a rough day! But on the bright side...what a great hubby! Hope the puppy cooperates from here on out. Just stopping by all of the WILTW bloggers from this week.
