Driving Me Nutso Crazy Whack-a-Mole

Sigh....you wanna hear some stuff?


No?  Too bad.

I drove all over freakin' everywhere today.  To school, back home.  

To Vesecky Farms to borrow egg chart and chicken, guinea and turkey eggs for homeschool demonstration.  

By the way, how awesome can a person be when a total stranger calls and says, "Hey, my name is April Weirdo and I saw your egg demonstration this fall during the tour of farms and, well, I was uh, wondering if I could borrow it?"  and then the person, without hesitation, says, "Yes, I'll go dig it out of the storage shed."  That's right they had to dig it out of storage.  They put all the eggs in little labeled sacks aaaand did it all in an hour, cuz that's all I gave them before I went to pick it up.  Then...yes, then when I get to the door, I'm greeted by the sweetest woman ever and another young woman holding a one month old baby, so it's not like they had anything better to do but gather eggs and dig in the storage shed for me.  God of wonders.

driving cont...

To pick up carpool.  To drop son off at play practice.  To drop two kids off at school.  To grocery store to get supplies for homeschool demo.  Back to school to pick up daughter.  To Clay's office to pick up some copies of egg thingy he made for me.  To homeschool co-op  group.  To Clay's office to borrow cash that daughter needs for pizza party with basketball team.  To basketball practice.  To Bread Company to buy three loaves of bread to say  'you are so awesome thank you' to the Vesecky's.  To Vesecky Farm.  To pick up my son at a friends house.  To home-sweet...what is that smell?

WHAT THE GALLBLADDER IS THAT SMELL?!!!  

Oh, dear, I think that it might be cat pee.  Hard to tell with the lining of my nostrils hanging out of my nose.  But, yes, it has to be cat pee.  Where is it?  

Then begins the sniffing.  Sniffing carpets, sniffing shoes, coats, gloves, trash.  Where is it?  I took out the trash, nope not it.  Crapnutshellfreakgur!  Fine!  I'll just mop the freaking floor!  Fill the sink with water..... oh my freaking wow!    I think it's coming from the sink! The cat peed in the sink.  Usually, she does what any normal person would do and uses the toilet.  I've told you all this before, but in case your new, my cats pee in the toilet.  I had nothing to do with it, it just happened.  But the lids were down on the toilets and when that happens she uses the sink, gross, I know.  She has never used the kitchen sink so, this was new, and my oh my it stunk up the whole house!  

But, now I have clean floors and my cat can live another day and I'm not getting back in my van to drive anyone anywhere for anything...until tomorrow.

I am so jealous of yout toilet-usin' cat! Tal did that ONCE when she was a kitten and then never again.

Can you drive over to Best Buy and get a camera cord for me?

I'm cracking up. Caleb tells me quite often that your I. told him that his cat pees in the potty. I always giggle and tell Caleb, "Oh, I. was just being silly." Then I smile to myself and think, "That whole family is so funny." But, now I know the truth! Your cat really does pee in the potty. Amazing! I'm going to have to talk to Caleb about this. I'm still laughing. Thanks! Um, Richard wants to know where they poop.
Miss y'all, Anne

Anne!!!
I love it when you comment. Tell Richard they poop outside in a hole the dog dug.

Ike misses Caleb so much, he loves the X-mas card of y-all and you were the first family we prayed for this year, we're using the xmas cards that were sent to us and praying for those families specifically.

You are quite descriptive... in fact, I am smelling phantom cat pee as I type and gagging for real.

OH, you have got to get a picture of the cat using the toilet! I can't imagine what sort of position she has to be in to make it. Does she flush too?

Now if you could only get your kids to pee in the toilet.

The funniest part of this story is the "Whack a Mole" part. Show cats, show cats, show cats.

Last year we were eating turkey eggs in the spring. We would hard-boil them and take them to the Farmers Market to show the customers just how huge and cool they looked. My son loved to eat them at the end. Then the next day I'd make an omlet for him using one turkey egg and then make another omlet for my daughter using 6 phoenix eggs. We LOVE farm eggs!

I used to babysit for a veterinarian whose cats peed in the toilets. Their house had a plethora of bathrooms and their daughter's room had a private bath. I was there late at night and I hear something in the daughter's bathroom--sounds like someone is using it. I go check, the girl is asleep in her bed, but the cat walks out of the bathroom with a "nothing happened--what are you looking at" expression on her face. Blew me away!!!
