Dogs and Cats and birds oh my!

Have you ever had one of those days that the minute your big toe touches the ground you know you should have stayed in bed? If you said no your lying. Anyways, I had that kind of day today. It was like the planets were all aligned wrong, it was going to be a full moon, God thought I could handle more than I could or something along those lines. I mean I even felt off. I was sick to my stomach, grouchy, annoyed with people and situations and really just needing to get to church to clear my head and get into worship. I was sitting in our office about 8am or so when I heard this really horrible sound in the kitchen. I mean REALLY LOUD! I went in to find our two little girls screaming, the bird cage on the ground all broken up and the dog chasing the birds. Our puppy had tossed a toy in the air and decided it was best to launch himself through the air & land on top of the bird cage to catch the rope he was chasing. I looked up to see he had one of the brids and so now we are all screaming which by the way if your wondering does wonders for a situation like this. The cat just sat in shock at the spectacle in front of him. I finally got the bird out of the dog and the dog and cat out of the room. I also caught the mean birds that by the way I dont really even like and put them back in their cage screaming the whole way as they were attacking me. Again, screaming does help in an emergency trust me on this. :) So long short of it is I was exhausted by 830am this morning my husband was still not home from his 72 and I decided when life is that exciting that early in the morning its best to just go back to bed and start over. No good can come from starting a day like that.

Oh my gosh that sounds like something that would happen in this house. Except that our fiascos usually involve poop or throwup. I say go back to bed and wait it out until the 72 is over.

I could totally picture the whole scene. Yikes!!!

These things do always seem to happen when the Hubby is away, don't they? So unfair!!!

What a funny picture this scene paints. At least the dog didn't eat the bird! These are the things you talk about when all of your family is together and you laugh :)

Christy, thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. Your day sounds hysterical, and exhausting! Hope you survived the 72. I don't care for them...I can handle 48's, but 72's are just icky. I will definitely be stopping by again!!!
