Manic Monday

I don’t know what I would do without my fur kids. Monday’s are hard on me no matter what is going on in my life. Today was harder than most Monday’s as I didn’t sleep well last night due to pain.

Then my job that went from full time to very part time, partly my request so I didn’t loose my unemployment benefits completely, is now on the verge of being done for the season. Most of the guys are fun to work with. Although lately I am being picked on by this one guy. He is suppose to be a supervisor.

I have borderline personality disorder. Which means I am easily upset by negative remarks and when it is close to that time of the month it get really bad. My self-esteem is low enough I don’t need people comparing me to others that I am nothing like. I almost told Supervisor where to go today.

I don’t know what I did to him to deserve this kind of treatment. Anyways I came home really down and just felt like bawling. I went into the other room to make my coffee and all three of my kids were looking at me like

“Can we play now mom. Huh Huh. Pleeeeeeeeeeeeaseeeee.”

It brought a smile to my face and made my day a little bit better. They are playing with my shoes as I write this trying to get them under the desk.

They seem so happy that it makes me realize no matter how bad things look it could always be worse and I should just let go and dance.

Lance cracks me up with his sock fetish and where those socks should be. After each play session I go to the pile of socks by the chair and put them all back in the toy box for the next play session.

First thing Lance does is go to the toy box and rescues all of his socks and puts them right back by the chair. Once in a while he’ll drag one or two under the desk.

For those of you who don’t mind blog contests I am going to give away 1 pet super pet sock-r-ball sock-r-ball and a $5 Wal-Mart gift card.

The contest will run from July 27-August 7.

I know how you hate jumping through hoops to earn an entry so this one will be fairly easy. 2 ways to enter

1. Leave me a comment about the blog on any entry during the contest period. Has to be about the blog no pick me comments.

2. Get someone else to start reading my blog. Have them leave a comment with who referred them.

On August 8th I will pick a winner from all entries by random. I’ll post the winner on August 8th and the winner will have until Wednesday to contact me with their mailing address.

My neighbor has a cat and he is always over at my house wanting his tummy rubbed. This would be a great toy to give him.

We have a cat who loves socks probably as much as Lance! He is so proud when he finds a new one!
He would love a soccer ball!
Thanks

Thanks so much for all of the interesting info, I just found your blog but I'm really loving it already! I adopted a ferret from a shelter a few months ago and have never owned one before so it's really been tough trying to gather information about them.

I know what you mean, I have days like that too and my Cooper can always cheer me up as soon as I set foot through the door.

I also just found your blog. My pet ferret can always cheer me up after a bad day. He is so entertaining - I think he thinks he is a cat sometimes! He loves to play "catch me if you can!"

I have two dogs and a ferret. I never thought I would like having a ferret, but my ex got me one for Sweetest day a few years back. It was so random, but I'm totally in love (with the ferret, not the ex)! :)

I used to have ferrets growing up and had them before kids. They are so much fun. We used to build mazes for them with the cardboard tubes from wrapping paper.
Thank you for the chance

We've got two cats. They're pretty cool. Kleo Petra is the first one & Ms. Hands is the second one. They'll play with anything; especially Ms. Hands.

My 2 chihuahuas LOVE getting new toys. We have been looking for something that they won't be able to destroy less than an hour after getting it. This looks like a great toy for them to try

My boss runs hot and cold, leaving me feeling like I don't know where I stand at any given day. I understand your frustration at work. My furbabies, eight cats (well, one is my husband's cat only; he hates me, so really seven cats), they give me great joy. I'm sure Kali in particular would love that ball!

Gianna said...

I love your Ferret Proofing article :)

Jill1 said...

Sock-r-ball will be good for the little toy poddle but the large German shepard just pops the balls like they're thin ballons.

Betty C said...

My fur babies make me smile too. But sometimes they can be so demanding! Pumpkin thinks she has to be in my lap if I am using the computer. It gets very hard to type one handed.

I enjoyed reading the articles on your blog. Ferrets are so cute!
