Blogically Challenged

Yup. That's how I am feeling right now. I have lurked in that area for several days. . . Maybe it's because each time I sit to blog, I think of all the work I need to do. Who knows, but I am officially blogically challenged right now!!!!!

Before I head off to work on my house, let me share a few funnies that happened. . .

Recently, my younger sister, Joanna, was cleaning a person's home when she discovered some lovely dog droppings on the floor. Now, I do a lot for folks, but it stops at cleaning up after animals! Well, she, being afraid they might be upset if she left it there, pulled her shirt over her nose and cleaned away. The only problem was that the smell still reached her nose, and she threw up inside of her shirt!!! Have you ever heard of such a thing?! I laughed sooo hard. I know I shouldn't have, but it was too funny!

Last week during my yard work, I found one of my sons eating leaves!!! You can imagine how appalled I was! "Oh, these are good," he replied and munched on another. The practice came to a screeching halt as I stated the probability of bird droppings landing on trees/leaves. Apparently, I was supposed to feel better when he then told me that he and the neighbor boy have tasted grass! I then monologued about animal droppings and put the grass eating fad to a stop, too. I wonder if we are descendants of Nebuchadnezzar!

Thank you for all the kind comments concerning my finger. It is doing quite well and almost got shut in the bedroom door today! At least it wasn't at the same spot.

I am off the attack the house and maybe receive some inspiration.

Now that I can easily check your blog, you haven't been there! Glad to see you're back. When I cleaned Kathy's last week, I had similar issues. I stepped in urine. I tried to clean it up quickly, and phoned Kathy to let her know why the carpet was rolled up. She has since discovered it is Odd. He even wets himself in his cage. He may need to be put down. I was totally grossed out.

Poor dog! I thought his name was "Ud."
Oh, yes, poor Les, too! :-) You are another brave soul that cleans up after animals.

Blech! I have enough trouble cleaning up after the three men in this house! The leaves/grass munching made me crack up, since I caught Kent sampling sidewalk chalk on Friday and Connor licking the doorknob today! Glad it's not just me...

That's how it's pronounced. It's Norwegian and spelled "Odd".

Oh, yeah. . .Now I remember.

At least it wasn't worms. My boys also used to have a penchant for eating potting soil.

We'll probably end up having to call poison control someday.

Poor Ud. It sounds like he has something wrong with him.

Martha, you are hilarious. Glad that your finger is getting better. I know, I LOVE blogging so much that I forget that time is still racing while I write, read, adjust, and re-read my blog, then before I know it, supper needs made, dishes need washed, etc. But, I'm learning to get my work done and then do my blog. (Hence, it is 12:30 AM!) SMILE!
Take care,
