Can't even think of a title

So at three o'clock, I had more done than I thought and got my second wind, so I took a shower. I sat down in the recliner post-shower and fell asleep for 2 hours. When I woke up, and Stormy had chewed his tail to the point where he was all over blood and he hit a vein and it was spurting.

Blood everywhere--all over the house, the dog, the carpet, so the first thing I did was put the dog in the tub for a rinse. I got a new dressing on him and most of the blood out of his fur, and he jumped out of the tub, KNOCKED ME BACKWARDS into the vanity and ran around the house. He got the new dressing off with his tail still spurting, and got blood everywhere he hadn't gotten it the first time.

Since six o'clock, I have been scrubbing blood out of the sofas, carpet, off walls, chairs, kitchen table, lamps. I thought I was on the home stretch, and that all I had to do was put some stuff away, dust some stuff, and vacuum. Now it's looking as if the kitchen won't even be marginally neat, let alone clean, when everyone arrives.

Oh, and I took my emergency pack of cigarettes out of the freezer and smoked a whole bunch, so I can really feel awful about myself.

Tell them your decorator was an ax murderer.

I'm tellin' ya, you have to put the cone/lampshade collar thing on the dog's rear end. Either that or have his entire tail removed. Dogs just don't understand logic.

*HUGS* Jammies.

And I don't give a rat's ass about how clean your house is. It will be quite enough to see you.

You have great friends.

(& its interesting to note that my word verification was "ygoof")

honey, so long as I'm not having to sleep in blood (been there, done that, no desire to repeat), the rest will be what it is... take care of the furry critter and worry not about how impressed we will all be by your cleaning prowess!

Babycakes, its not YOU being bad, its the pup.

Off with his tail!

(seriously, it needs to come off. All of it. Poor thing).

Someone far wiser than I once advised cleaning after a party. After all, it was only going to get dirty all over again. Cleaning twice when once will do? No thanks.

So sorry about the tail of the pup. :(
