Dan to me: Here’s a question: What do you think we pick up the most of….
Me: (interrupting) Water bottles!
Me: (interrupting again) Hair bands!
Me: (interrupting again) Dirty laundry! Wet Towels!
Dan: No…listen: pet hair, cat vomit/hairballs, or dead rodents (gifts from the cats)?
Me: Hmm….tough call. But, let’s be honest, you don’t pick up any of the cat vomit or hairballs…you just pretend you don’t see it until I clean it up.
Dan: Yeah, but I pick up ALL the dead animals.
Me: It’s like living with serial killers with colitis and chronic hair loss.
There is no dog having more fun mucking up the system than this one. God love Jack Rusells:
Not a very photogenic weekend…just a lot of housework, freelance writing and…this:
Even cats. This 19 second video is hilarious. (BTW — I actually DO like spinach…and the cat probably would, too, if he’d just try it!)
I don’t really do yoga, but I can relate to this video of pets interrupting workouts. This is me and all the animals in my house (but especially Blue) every single time I try to workout in the basement:
I took Monday off because it was Columbus Day and even though it’s been established that our man Columbus was a dolt and “found” a “new world” that wasn’t even the one he was looking for and was, in fact, already inhabited, the forlorn explorer’s journey offers today’s Americans a convenient excuse to take the day off and go shop the Columbus Day sales (‘merica! Consume… consume…consume!).
I used to have Columbus Day off when I worked at the newspaper and every year since I left there, I would get jealous when all my old coworkers would post photos of their bonus day off adventures while I sat at work, enjoying a gorgeous autumn day from behind glass.
So this year, I decided to take the day off, too. Though…my “days off” might kill the average person. My Columbus Day started with an early morning workout and 4-mile run, then ran Lauren to a doctor’s appointment, did a little housework and laundry, wrote a few blog posts, decorated for Halloween, and went hiking.
Meanwhile….back at the ranch:
Something tells me this is what every day is like for this crew.
That “something” may or may not be pet hair on every soft surface in my house.
Speaking of the secret lives of pets…have you seen this trailer? We can’t wait for the movie, which is supposed to be released in June.
