In the category of "strange but true" - this is my life! I should have known better than to trust things were working out. I foolishly bragged about getting Moms new care schedule straight. Today when I dropped her off at day care they informed me that the day had changed for the added day. It would be on Tuesdays and Thursdays, not Wednesday. So now I will have to change her schedule AGAIN. It will be OK, just another bunch of phone calls and another pain in my arse.
And it seems my Pepe played a little trick on me. Tonight when I got home from work, my neighbor across the street came out and was trying to get my attention. To be honest I was tired and not in the mood for neighborly chit chat but she was toddling across the street anyways.
She's saying something about a skunk. As she got closer I said Yes, I have seen a skunk in my backyard but not for several days. Noooo, she says -- last night! She tells me she was looking out her window when I took "the little dog" out to pee. She says the skunk was in the front yard and while we were "doing our business" the skunk was walking towards us. She was all flustered and said she thought about yelling at me out the window but was scared she might startle it and it would spray. She said just as she started to panic, I brought "the little dog" inside. So now that I think about it, I'm not sure if she was more worried about me getting sprayed or "the little dog".
That bleeping skunk was sneaking up behind me!! This means war
