Q&E Babble

Okay, I give.   I am doing it.   I miss PPWM too much.

I want to babble.   I think you all want to babble.  So let’s babble here and then go back to PPWM when they finally get us fixed.   I know, it’s discouraging now, but I am too optimistic for my own good.   I do think iVillage will get this mess fixed.   One day. 

For those not on FB, Shelly is monitoring Waylon, debating on a trip to Pitt.   He ran a fever all day yesterday and most of the night.   At her last check in, he’s down to 99.   She’s calling the coordinator this morning.

I had my work party last night.   I took a platter of Jalapeno Cheese Grits.   I have never had 6 people ask me for a recipe before.   I heard they were, “on point” and “ready.”  I love it when I bring the most popular dish.   There wasn’t a scrap left.  

Off to get dressed for work.   As of 3:00 today I am done until January 2nd.   And then I can start counting down for my spring break beach trip.

AS long as Chritine is fine is all that matters Gaye.  no one needs to know the details.

Webster can hold everthing all day and all night long as long as he remembers to do so.  His problem is he does not remember he is suppose to go outside to do his business.  I keep telling him it is a good thing we both love him to pieces.  At his age someone else might have made a different decision for him.

Condensed version:

RooBen had diarrhea all over my house twice Thursday morning.

I had to leave Thursday at 2 to go to Christine's.

I bought RooBen doggie diapers.  Not wonderful, but they help.  He can hold his water, but not the other.  He spent a lot of time in Christine's garage.

Christine's surgery went well yesterday.  We checked in at 5:30 AM and were home in her house before 11.  She asked that I not post anything on FB because it was "female" surgery, and she didn't want to have to explain.

I came home late this morning.

I just typed a great big long update, and there is nothing there.  Nothing!   I am so angry!

Did somebody say doggie diarrhea?  OMG!.  Here, too. 

Timing was awful.  I got an e-mail that RooBen was ready to be picked up at the clinic on Wednesday.  I ran and got him, went and picked up Rowan after school, came home and went to choir practice, packed to leave to go to Christine's the next day.  Now I had to take RooBen and pack for him, too.  When he was my foster the first time, he slept in a little doggie bed on the floor in my bedroom, because he turned into Cujo when crated.  Why would I not do the same thing when he came back?

I heard him whimper once in the night, but paid no attention.  Woke up at 7 AM to blobs of poop on the bedroom carpet, out into the hall, inside the door of the spare room, down the hall, and into the den.  ALL of this area is carpeted.  I spent an hour scrubbing poop out of my carpet.  I was about to get dressed, turned around, and he had done it again.  I was about to cry.

Ran to PetSmart and bought doggie diapers and doggie kaopectate.  I mean, I HAD to have Christine at the hospital in Frisco at 5:30 Friday morning, and I had to leave!  To add to my misery, there was a rollover bus fatality on Highway 161, which is my chosen route, and the highway was shut down.  So I had to take 360 by the airport onto 121 which is under construction.

Loaded 3 dogs and 3 dog crates into the CRV along with doggie gear, my clothes, and an order to spinach meatballs, and headed out.  RooBen would have to spend his nights in Christine's extra garage (was the "man cave" when a man lived there; now holds only two bicycles, a freezer and the water softener.)

Christine's surgery went well.  We checked in at 5:30.  They started the procedure around 8.  We were home in her house before 11.  She is fine, today, and I left about quarter past 10 to come home.

Susan you said Nat is ELEVEN!!!!!!  YIKES!!!! I rember her 1st day of school like it was yesterday!  Crap in two years you will have a teenage girl in the house - oh boy watch the hormones start to fly!

Renee I may be too late on this but Bissell has a great dog pre-treat stain removal product.  I have become pretty much a dog poop and pee on the carpet stain expert.  Poor Web is 15 going on 16 and he has dementia.  He can hold it.  That isn't the problem.  He has just forgotten where he is at times and thinks he is outside when he is inside.  Poor guy but we still love him.

Renee - I would google and see what other people say.  I've used a carpet cleaner, but never to get stains out, just to clean.  Make sure you go slow!  There are some pet pretreaters out there that you can buy.

Lazy day here.  My house is still pretty clean from last weekend, so just some light cleaning today.  Catching up on laundry and dishes.  Natalie is at a friends house until 4:30.  I'm making her chicken pot-pie (the pie kind) for supper tonight.  Grandparents and godparents are coming over for cupcakes and ice cream tomorrow (yesterday was her 11th birthday). 

Welp, better go check the laundry.

Good Morning ladies!

Welcome back Gus!

Daisy- the april 11th anniversary is when we got legally married at the courthouse.... and we had a fake ceremony with all the bells and whistles on august 23rd, because FIL was too sick to come to the april one... he just had his operation done for prostate cancer....

We had dinner out last night! was so yummy! I had a cheese and bacon burger and fries, and DH had ribs and fries, I ate some of the ribs too... and we had a coupon for a free appetiser so we got chicken spring rolls! yum!

Renee- Yuck on the doggy diareah! ( sorry about the spelling) Snoopy had that the other day, but thankfully just did it outside lol. it was a few hours after the little bugger found a pork chop bone in the garbage bin, so probably too much fat for his tummy.

Well we only got a dusting of snow thank goodness... but they are predicting more tonight.. boo DH needs to dig in the shed either today or tomorrow for the car battery charger, so he can get my car going! We had a good chat about it last night, and Im going to book myself into drivers ed again, the next dates that work with our schedules is end of may...

sorry if I missed anyone, but just noticed the time, I gotta get my butt ready for work! have a great saturday everyone!

Sorry, Renee, no experience with carpet cleaners. I do think vinegar is the miracle cure for everything else, so maybe that would work?

Sandy, working all weekend is awful. Ugh!

Guss, great to have you back.

I'm off to the ballpark.
