Vegas was a success! As always but this time it was a success with great friends.
Letting loose with no kids and not having to worry about anything but making back to our beds was pretty awesome!
I learned how to play Roulette. Not that I’m any good at it but I still learned the game and that it can be a lot of fun to lose your money! And believe me, we did!
We found some things that we never knew were here after all our years coming here. There was this tiny little bowling alley in an air stream with shot puts as the balls. Only 2 lanes and super fun!
Got to see the Chris Angel Believe show…..Good show but not as much “Magic” as we thought and a lot more showy crap. Still good just not what was expected.
Now we head back to the reality of work, school, house work, ranch work and taking care of our kids.
It was fun while it lasted!
Everyone knows I have a lot of animals. Inside and out. Yes, because I am a crazy person and like to be constantly busy.
Lately the inside animals have begun to rebel against using their liter box and going potty outside. They have begun to rebel against me. I have picked up more shit and cleaned up more piss on my floor in the past week than I ever did when my kids were little!
Now if they don’t want the boot( which I will do in heartless heartbeat) they better shape up!
This weekend is the test for the cats. While I am away I am locking them up in the room where their cat box and food is and they can’t come out until I come home. Maybe not even until after that if when I come home there is shit on the floor in there. What is the point of teaching them to use the cat box and to have one if they aren’t going to use it? I keep trying to tell them they have it good in here. When I let them out they become chew toys for the dogs and I will only be sad for a moment. (my kids will be super sad but they don’t clean up the poop) You gotta live and learn and if you don’t learn you’re screwed!
Then I have this ridiculous dog! He was….WAS great until recently. All of sudden with the weather change he won’t potty outside. It’s too cold. Well, you’re shitting on my carpet and I’ve had enough. Back in the crate he goes. Back to crate training and listening to him whine incessantly. My carpet is white! They choose to shit on the carpet! Seriously….they are driving me crazy!
I swear they are in cahoots together too. It’s like one poops and the other one is like “Ya, he did it so I can do it too and I can do it bigger. Check me out!” The piles are always right by each other in different places every time. I go get them to show them their mistake and they are looking at each other like “Dude, we got caught. We need to find a different spot.”
So it’s lesson learning time.
This is their chance. I’ve explained it to all of them very calmly, rationally and with easy to understand terms. I’d rather they learn than me have to get rid of them or make them barn animals. I do really like them when they’re not soiling all over my house! They sleep in my bed and play fetch pretty well.
So here’s to hoping my animals understand when I talk to them and that they are going to snap out of whatever funk they are in by the end of next week!
Do you have a rebel animal?
Sometimes I wonder why I pack so much in. Especially after yesterday’s post. But then I remember…that’s who I am.
This morning all before 9:30 am I WILL have:
Cleaned up the house including vacuuming, mopping, dusting, dishes and that stupid cat box because I won’t have time later.
Fix the baby gate that locks the dog in the bar when it’s raining. He’s an ass hole and chewed through it and my carpets white!
Made a batch of cookies. I don’t even know why, it’s not needed.
Brought wood in for this morning and tomorrow. (my fires already going)
Fed and watered animals. (this one is done already)
Feed my kids…..since I kind of have to do that and get them ready.
Pack some snacks and waters because it is going to be one long ass day!
So I have to go get all this shit done in the next 2 hours and then my day will continue to be busy! What’s life without a little craziness?
