The Universe Is Paying Me Back

Posted in Buggle Bite, Motherhood, Parenting at 9:34 pm by Momma

So I’m pretty sure that this “half full” thing is throwing off the natural rotation of the Earth and the I’m being paid back in a major way.

Example Numero Uno:

Sunday afternoon Dad-Oh and I decided to take Aidan for a walk through Totem Park and let him run around on the trail and toss rocks into the river. Since Auntie Larissa had borrowed the stroller we had to make a quick stop at her place to pick it up. As I was exiting our mud room to our car port my left ankle buckled and I slipped. I tried my very best to catch myself with my right leg/ankle but instead I missed the stairs completely and fell off the top of the landing on to my right ankle. All the while breaking my fall with my head on the car window. Oh yeah good times! So yes folks I managed to sprain BOTH of my ankles in one fell swoop or crash? The kicker? I managed to hobble over and sit in the drivers seat bawling my eyes out and in excruciating pain while my darling son was in the back seat busting a gut! He must of thought I was playing a game or something because he was having himself a nice giggle at my expense. At least I HOPE he thought I was playing a game! I can’t say I wouldn’t laugh either if Mommy came flying down the stairs and face planted into my window. So now I am a double ankle gimp, hobbling along! Yes, I’m still half full!

Example Numero Dos:

That very same night our Puppers decided to have problems with her bowels! I’m telling you the universe is pissed off! A little after midnight I hear Aidan crying on the monitor, so I get up only to find that the dog had gone into his room and woke him up because she knows that will roust me (smart little cookie that way, if she could only learn to crap OUTSIDE we’d be good!). She started making her little “I need to go out now sounds” so I tried to rush her downstairs and out the door. But that was not in the grand plan because no more than five seconds after trying to coax her downstairs she pops a squat on the carpet in front of the bathroom and proceeds to have diarrhea all over the carpet! Hmmm! I manage to get her outside to do any more business, put Aidan back to sleep then proceed to scrub dog poo out of my carpet, did I mention it was midnight and I had been peacefully sleeping? I finally clean up and go back to bed only to be woken up mere hours later by the pungent aroma of poo poo. I get up and begin to investigate…sure enough another pile for me to scrub out of the carpet again! Why it’s the carpet every time is beyond me?! Never the laminate or linoleum…errr! So twice I was up in the wee hours of the night scrubbing crap out of my carpet with two sprained ankles!

Yeah, pretty sure the universe is plotting its revenge! ๐Ÿ˜ก

    its just a test of your resolve. more to come. uhm,,, at least you didnt break your ankles, and the dog didnt puke too. and they say laughter makes you live longer. long live aidan.

    Now the half ful mommy would have been thankful that she didn’t break a window, break an ankle, and end up with stained carpet.

    Hope you are feeling better! Big Hugs!

    Somewhere someone is saying something prophetic about God only giving you what you can handle.

    But not me, I’m busy picking up all the Half Empty slack and agreeing that the universe has it in for you!

    Come back to the dark side! ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

    Wow did you have me laughing ๐Ÿ™‚ I seem to remember that same story when you were young. When a person falls its a kinda funny so I see why Aidan was laughing ๐Ÿ˜† At least your not in a cast or two! Put a cork in that dogs butt or use one of Aidan’s diapers ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    Hang in there things can only get better!

    Love grammie

    HAH! Oh that’s terrible…
    Dog poop is so gross, and twice in the middle of the night–awfulness.
    Good job on staying half full, keep it up! Not that you were really bad before.
    PS: I like the old theme (this one) best.
