I was going to categorize this under Pet Tales, (pun on tail) just incase anybody does not get it, but I decided that was crass. (perhaps i did!)
Let me start from the beginning because I know you are probably wondering what is going on, or not and have moved on to someone else’s blog……hopes not
It has been a ‘shitty’ day, and I don’t usually use the word but it is appropropriate believe me!
Today was going to be a pretty nice day as far as planned days were going to go. Today I had planned something fun, no attempting to get a job, no stressful things, nope just something pleasurable.
What was that?
I had a friend coming around who was not only coming over for lunch, yes lunch. I hear Novice Gardener screaming knowing what a bad cook I am, but don’t worry it was a tart kind of thing pre-made pop in the oven, salad and new potatoes, how hard can that be? Yeh I know I nooked the sausages last night but we won’t talk about that too much.
Anyway my friend works at Sothebys and has some jewellery knowledge, so she was going to look at a couple of pieces of jewellery of mine to see if worth auctionining.
Morning has arrived
Food arrives – check – all going well
Look in the room where the dog live (dog room) – uh oh – puke on the floor and poo – not going well – but perhaps just a one off thing – worried but trying not to worry too much – keep an eye on him
Check the dog – dog is wretching outside – but he is a kind of regurgiative breed, so not too worried, but it’s building up.
Friend comes over – I talk non stop – all good
Make a cuppa – all good
Look in the dog room again – uh oh blood on the floor, little droplets – start worrying lots– he had problems with his bottom before – small tail still there but has blood on it – make appointment at the vets, can’t be until later – starting to feel somewhat stressed!
Finally decide to get out jewellery because I have been chatting too much I am sure I spot my friend going cross eyed – start putting pieces out in glee – responses aren’t quite as enthusiastic as hoped – start to feel somewhat disappointed in my crown jewels not really being crown jewels but paste and metal coloured with various things.
Mobile starts ringing but I am talking, probably a spammer – home phone rings, I miss it – go to listen – it’s my eldest sons school – message to ring school an incident with him – start to get stressed.
Keep an eye on the dog – oh no, bottom has started to come out – ring vets – ring husband – panic – is this going to continue to happen I ask the vets, yes probably – insurance won’t be covering it either, very expensive – selling of jewellery will not be covering this bill.
Make phone call to school – my son’s been bullied it turns out – teacher very nice finally got my son to open up to him which he never does to anyone else – son got called “fucking fat prick” by a 12 year old *nice children hey?* – he assures me the boy has been dealt with and said he would stop taunting my son, which apparently he has been doing for weeks now (now know that my sons tics/tourettes will be kicking off even more because of this) – stressed, stressed.
Make lunch – resolve to deal with the disappointment of jewellery & deal with school issues later – have chat with friend – she has not died of food poisining – not yet – but she didn’t want seconds, but hey that’s ok 😉 (more for me)
Keep on looking at dog – feel very bad – think about my son – feel bad – back feeling bad – go to lie down – back still feeling bad.
Eldest gets home, tells me about some kid getting his face repeatedly smacked against the gym changing room bars for irritating someone, then tells me how his friend with aspergers yesterday got his head smacked against the wall by some boys for being irritating – I didn’t realise that smashing kids heads was an acceptable response for being irritating? – can someone enlighten me on this? – really wondering why all these kids in Year 7 at this secondary school are so aggresive? – makes me worry lots.
Get a call from CHAMS – the appointment they offered me for my sons counselling in April was a mistake apparently – now we have to wait until May – I had a bit of an epi on the phone – this is the place that just recommended medicating my son within 10 mins of meeting him – I asked them how I was meant to deal on a day to day basis with someone who is morbidly depressed, whose tics are out of control, who cries because his head hurts so much when he tics, who asks me in desperation why can’t he get rid of this – it makes me cry every time I talk about it – they attempt to placate saying they will book for May but try to get something earlier – they don’t ring back- angry.
Jewellery removed – packed away – sad
Dog gone to vets – worried
Eldest upstairs doing homework – I just don’t know what I will do with his situaton.
Youngest watching TV – that’s another story!
Still a smell of nooked sausages in the house, it doesn’t matter how many jos sticks I burn, or candles I light or doors I open the house stinks!
I think I need a drink, except I can’t drink!
Waits for vet’s phone call – I know dog will stay overnight
Cooks pizza – dreams of a glass of white…..
How has your day been? Have you had a great day? A crazy day?
Sometimes these days are like buses, nothing then everything, there is a lot of back history with my eldest going on, so it might seem little here but there’s much more to it and with this lots of stress and worry, not to mention the poor dog.
Apparently it is really rare for a dog to get a prolapsed bottom, I cannot believe I have the dog that gets the prolapsed bottom. He is a year and a half now and it’s the 3rd time
Seriously every time he farts, coughs, jumps I stare anxiously at his ass! It’s not a great thing.
