Complain, Complain, Complain

I know nobody likes to listen to other people complain, but hey, I’m Claire. I’d complain to a wall if it would listen. Today has been one of those days, and I figured I’d share with you a few highlights.

--Moxie attempted to tunnel to China today while in the backyard unsupervised. Instead of China, all she got was a foot deep hole and a whole lot of trouble. I had to wash her front paws off since she was covered in mud, and let me tell you, that dog hates getting wet. She flipped out and ran off, through the conveniently open door and into the kitchen, leaving behind perfectly formed muddy paw prints. I felt like I was in a paper towel commercial or something. Thankfully my screaming stopped her from going on the carpeting, but it didn’t prevent her from soaking me with muddy water when she ran back outside.
--Speaking of mud, Laura decided to play in her mud patch while wearing her brand new shoes. They may never recover.
--A cavity that I have had filled 3 (count them!) different times woke me up last night and I’ve been in pain ever since.
--Along the same line, I was standing in the kitchen, minding my own business, when my knee decided that my day wasn’t bad enough and did whatever it is that knees do to reduce their humans into excruciating pain. I honestly was just standing there, contemplating my horrible photography skills, when I nearly collapsed from the pain. Interestingly, it only hurts when I stand around, not when I walk.
--In the past 48 hours I have driven 152 miles doing nothing but small, local errands.

And that is the official end of my complaining. None of those are actually that big of a deal, but you know how it is when everything seems to pile up on the same day. Several other small, annoying things happened as well which probably contributed to me feeling so overwhelmed. Hopefully I will be feeling much better once I watch LOST tonight and eat a whole bunch of SweeTart Chicks & Bunnies.

In other news, if I could learn how to take a decent picture, my Etsy store should be opening in just a few days. If you don't hear from me for a day or two, it's either because I'm working like crazy to get everything ready, or because I jumped up and down on my camera and have gone on the lam rather than explain to the Army Man why I broke the camera we bought to replace the other one I broke a few months ago.

Sorry your day was so stinky! I hope today goes better for you. BTW I am pretty good at taking pictures. If you get to the jump up and down on the camera stage, come get me and I will help.
