Is it too much to ask that our dog and cat go on vacation for, oh, let's say four months? Preferably separate (they don't always get along. It must be some cat/dog thing). Can I tell you why? I am so sick of the hair! It's a good thing that I hardly vacuum or mop because if I did any of those activities on a regular basis I would be very upset. The amount of crap that comes off of those two animals in one day is astounding. I know it's gross but we have a "no barefoot" rule in the house. This rule has been in effect for a few years now. Right about the time I gave up on maintaining any semblance of housewifery. And don't get any crazy ideas about me being a germaphobe. They can "catch" whatever the fruit they want from my floors, just don't catch the dirty. Now this no barefoot rule is fine for the older kids but we have a crawler living here now and I really don't like pulling wads of cat hair from his tightly clenched fists or some of the other mysterious stuff from the yard that drops off of the ass-end of my dog.
Le Chef did not like my previous picture so I toned it down a bit.
