Caching Up With Madge

Good grief. It's been ten days since my last post. At least.

So what's been going on? My dog is incontinent. I know. It's so awesome. Once the frequency of the urinating on my bed or any blankets that fell on the floor increased to once a day I finally decided to take her to the vet. The solution is a pill twice a day. So far it is working. But I have to wonder for how long? At what point am I putting diapers on her? And how disturbed am I that so many people have asked me if she is wearing diapers yet?

What else? My baby graduates from kindergarten Wednesday. Yes, they do the cap and gown thing. Honestly I think it's a little much. But damn, they are so cute who cares?

J10 has a week of school left and then we are officially on summer break and for the first time I'm really looking forward to it and not freaking out about handling work and the boys. I am so lucky (blah blah blah) to work from home, but it's kind of tough to manage work and the kids for 12 weeks. Of course now I look back and wonder how I did it when they were babies and toddlers but I did.

I'm back to the whole insomnia thing but this time instead of laying in bed for 2 - 3 hours and second guessing every single inch of my life I'm just going to get up and blog. Such a better use of my time.

OH! I almost forgot. Shameless plug for a friend's blog: Please check out The Trifecta. This is not a mommy blog. Which is exactly why you should go there (and no I am not saying I dislike mommy blogs. I love them. I am one quite often.) It's actually written by a guy. A cool guy. God knows the blogosphere could use some more of them (and no I am not dogging my two or three known male readers -- I heart you guys. immensely.) I will now stop apologizing. Just go over there and check it out.

Ah how the time flies when you're having fun (dogs,kids,lack of sleep...now that's a trifecta!)! when I go more than a week without blogging the nice girls at blogher send me a warning....

Love the link to Trifecta, someone with my sense of questionable humor!

May is always so busy and that's without the incontinent pooch.

I love those little caps and gowns. Too stinking cute...

That's a bummer about the dog--2 or 3 extra loads of laundry a day is never on anybody's list of things they want to do.

Be happy that the pills are working and that you don't need to diaper yet, maybe never. It's good to have the kids home, although you'll get less work done, but some quality time bonding is always nice, unless it gets to be too much and you want to stick them behind the wallpaper. Kindergarten graduation! What will they think of next. Toddler hood diplomas? Past teething medals? Mother's deserve all the rewards and recognition.

Bummer about the dog--hard enough just with normal messes in a house left by little boys!. Thanks for the link.

We were so worried about you! Glad you're still kicking . . .

I'm excited about school being out. We've been SO CRAZY around here with all the end of the year school stuff I can't remember if I've done what I need to do by Thursday or not.

I know you didn't get your kids all house trained just so the dog could start that business. If I didn't know better, I'd suggest they put the dog up to it.

So glad school is almost out...

Love those incontinent pets, girl! And I can't wait for school to be out! Sure, I'm going to want to lock them in a room after about a month, but at least we won't have to contend with crazy-assed teachers for a little while.
(And then, middle school starts. Can you hear the doomsday drumroll?)
