And today, it's been snowing off an on.
This (last gasp?) of winter isn't really a problem except that Mr Seamus has been violently sick with explosive diarrhea these past few days and we've had to leave the house windows open to try to get rid of the smell.
Yeah, it's been bad. Real bad.
"Decide to get rid of the carpet" bad. (There are wood floors underneath and wood is a heck of a lot easier to clean up than carpet.)
"Cut off the bottom of the curtains" bad. (The cat had already shredded them so they need to be replaced anyway.)
I don't know what caused Seamus's distress, but thankfully it doesn't seem contagious as neither of the other dogs has been ill. Also, Seamus seems to be recovering. No more accidents in the house and his toxic farts have almost stopped. He's on a diet of boiled rice and hamburger for awhile.)
But between the car, the furnace acting up, Seamus's illness, and finding out that we owe almost $1000 in income tax...it's been a rough week.
