Well, we’re going to need a new rug

**Update**

Any desire I might have had in the back of my mind for a pet is gone.

I love Tucker to death–but I’m just not a pet person.

This should have been abuntantly clear when I killed a beta from neglect, but no, I have to go off and think I need a cat or something.

Anyways, the temp is hovering around 32 degrees, and apparently, Tucker only poops in the evening with a SUPER long walk around the lake.

This was news to me.

That arrived in the form of a giant poop on my one living room rug.

While gross–it’s really not that big of a deal. The rug was old and since we are *hopefully* buying a couch soon, I want to get a bright area rug to go where the other rug was, so it actually kind of worked out ok.

Not that having an animal crap on your rug is ever a good thing, but still…

If Tucker has pooped on the book chair, I’m not sure what I would have done.

Probably have hid from John—that’s his favorite piece of furniture.

(Translation: HOLY SHIT)

(Jo, if this happens to be the ONE blog of mine you read—I LOVE YOU. 🙂

So apparently, my lesson this month is about having a realistic view of myself and my abilities.

And. so we’re learning what happens when I don’t have a clear grasp on reality and the word ‘yes’ comes out of my mouth far to often.

“Why, sure I can work extra cleaning hours this week while I’m training someone new and doing everything else that my job entails.”

“Why, sure I can do dishes at church tomorrow… I mean, I haven’t been to church in a month and it’s a 20 minute drive and the childcare closes before I’m done and I have a  three year old and Sunday’s are the only days I have completely off with John and I have  a paper due tomorrow and I’m leaving for The Place of Despair on Tuesday and….. and…….”

Things really aren’t too bad. I’ve been getting a lot better about setting good boundaries and protecting my emotional and mental health. (And, I refuse to feel guilty about it! You hear that? I REFUSE! Our society has such an unrealistic view about how much women are supposed to be able to accomplish. I mean, I am  supposed to be able to: Work a full time job, go to school full time, cook, clean, do other householdy stuff AND have a three year old while my partner works HIS full time job. Which is just crazy. And impossible. ….and anyone who looks at my bathroom can completely confirm this. Anyways.) (more…)
