A day...morning in my life (and I am sure many others): Wake up on a Saturday at 7:00 am because in my world now that is sleeping in. Peter has left for the gym, Kieran spent the night at a grandparents. I have a rare couple hours all to myself, I make my oatmeal, while cleaning up the disaster of a kitchen created throughout the week, pour some yummy tea, take out my book and journal, give Rocky a treat of some leftover ham in his dish, take a deep breath and sit at my table facing outside to see all the chickadees. Deep breathe, this is so nice, eating my breakfast and journaling....then it happens. Rocky starts gagging, up I jump rushing him down to the basement in the race to get him outside before he pukes on the floor...didn't make it, right before the door it happens-his whole breakfast and the ham-chewed-can't even open the door to finish letting him out the pile is so high. Geez Rocky, I say calmly, you need to chew your food bud" I am not even mad, because I still have lots of time, still feeling zen. I clean the puke, let Rocky out, go upstairs to throw the bag of puke out....and there is zen disappears for a few minutes as I see on the top stair a raspberry mashed in to the beige carpet from my foot. A lone berry that must have been hidden on the floor from yesterdays breakfast that I unknowingly smashed my foot into and then mushed into the stairs on my rush to get Rocky out. Said a few choice words there, got the stain remover, cleaned it up let Rocky in, zen restored back to breakfast. Came down stairs to write this blog....stepped in cat puke....sigh, oh well.
P.S. Kieran had his first dentist visit. He was amazing, he was so excited to be there, he did every thing they asked, without a hitch. He didn't want to leave. Afterwards he asked me why the dentist didn't have candy.
