happy? birthday

I am another day older today, the ripe age of 38! I am not one to lament my age, don't worry ;) But it has been an interesting morning so far.

Before 8 a.m. this morning:

-my dog got into my bathroom garbage. Girly products shredded and strewn all over the place. THEN...he threw up 2 full tampons. I cannot even begin to describe how gross that is.
-we heard something in the wall: looks like we have a mouse (or something) in there! Right by a light switch, so I have to get the exterminator in here before it chews through a wire and burns down our house. Since we have had FIVE YEARS of renovations (and not the fun kind, the my-roof-is-leaking kind) that just finally ended in December, I am less then thrilled at the idea of someone coming over and cutting a new hole in my wall
- my one treat to myself in my busy day today- a massage- was cancelled due to illness. Sigh.
- long discussion with Big G regarding his use of the F* bomb yesterday......seriously. Already?


On the plus side:

-I enjoyed a nice workout with a friend, who sent me home with homemade soup and goodies for lunch
-I received some adorable homemade cards and lots of hugs and kisses from my children. The Middle Child even drew a "Disney Quilt" in hers to combine my quilting love with the excitement of our upcoming holiday :)
-lots of lovely messages from good friends and family

All in all, pretty eventful for this early in the morning! And I think, weighing it out, things will balance on the positive side, despite the early morning glitches! It is going to be a great day :)

Dogs! Don`t you love them? The grossest thing ours used to do was roll in fox poo. Nothing like that smell. Happy birthday!!

Before you call the exterminator try some do it your self stuff for mr mousie. Buy a package of the orginial mouse traps(Snap Traps), 4 in a pack. Then grabe a pack of wriggles juicyfruit gum. Set one the traps under your bathroom sink with the gum as the bait. I like on under the kitchen sink too. The smell of the gum is fabulous to the mice. Mice use the holes around your plumbing to get in and out.

Happy Birthday Kristie! I just can't think of a better way to spend a special day, besides cleaning up puked up tampons!! OMG! I hope there is some sort of alcoholic beverage in your evening plans!

Katie B. said...

I literally gagged when I read about the dog puke. My goodness. Hope you're having a great day despite the before 8 am business!

Lynne said...

Happy birthday!

Put a bait in the roof - the mouse will take it! No holes in the wall that way!

Would you believe my word verification is "smousen"? ;-)

Kim said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!! Super BIG hugs for all the trouble in your house today!!!!!!

Happy birthday, things can only get better! As for the dog incident, when I was 18 I ended up kind of co-hosting a friend's 16th birthday party (long story) but one of the girls that came drank too much, and then threw up all over the toilet floor, and pulled her tampon out and deposited it in the mess too. Luckily, due to other circumstances, I didn't have to clean that one up!

Natalie said...

Happy Birthday!!!! I hope the day turned around a bit-- they usually do :) I hope you had some time to play with fabric, or to do something else fun for yourself! Here's to another great year!

Rachel said...

Awww...Happy Birthday! I hope you get to rebook that massage...and have it on a day when NOTHING else happens ;)

My birthday is Saturday. I'm a couple of years older than you and lamented my age right up until I turned 40 the, for some reason, the horizon just seemed brighter and now I don't care.

Poppyprint said...

You're probably sleeping off those 38 years already, but just wanted to chime in before midnight BC time and say happy day!!! Mice in the wall....yeah, been there. Annually. I hope you guys have a fabulous family vacation!

Melissa said...

Hmm, dog puking out tampons.. Isn't that kind of along the same lines as a bird crapping on your head? It's all good luck, right?? Happy Birthday and cheers to a fabulous year ahead! :)

Shay said...

Happy Birthday Gorgeous Girl!~ Hope it was fabulous.

I wish you'd gotten video of the dog ...that would have gone viral on You Tube. (Did it ever occur you you that the dog was practising party tricks in honour of your birthday ???)

Little Blue Mouse said...

Happy Birthday Kristie!

I can't get over the fact that you'd done a workout before 8am. I'm very rarely out of bed by then.

leigh said...

Happy Birthday! Even though it's never quite the same when you're not a kid anymore :)

Happy [belated] birthday! My dog has also gotten into the tampons. Good times.

Here's to hoping the rest of your day got better! And if it didn't, well, here's to celebrating your half birthday!

Hollie said...

Happy Birthday! (A little late.) Hope it got better!
