My Life in Hell

The toddler is completely broken - I WANT MY DADDY.  Bob's decision to go to archery practice tonight instead of picking her up and coming home was very Indiana Jones.  He chose... poorly.

Said toddler has had a wicked bad cold since last Friday.  Apparently it's become an ear infection - it looks like she's got discharge from the ear that she says hurts.  Which means that the eardrum has ruptured.  From past experience, I know how horrifically painful that is - and there's not a damn thing I can do about it.  Unless it's the most God's awful encrustation of ear wax I've ever seen.  I'll call the pediatrician as soon as they open in the morning.

The cat has progressed from peeing on the bathroom rug, to peeing and shitting on a duffel bag in the hall, to peeing on my bed, to shitting on the rug in front of the couch.  Yesterday I thoroughly scrubbed the litterbox and brought it upstairs, while setting up an extra in the basement.  This morning, both boxes were pristine.  This afternoon, both boxes were pristine.  Someone, however, had peed on the loveseat.  I'm done with this.  Starting tonight, they're each getting locked in a bathroom with a litter box, a bowl of water, a bowl of food, and a towel to sleep on.  No one comes out until box training is re-established.  I am DONE.

It's just one damn thing after another.

Re: Eardrum rupturing
I had *chronic* ear infections as a child and teen, so I'm intimately familiar with the process. Sadly, I'm also familiar with how it hurts, and I feel terrible for her. But I'll call the pediatrician as soon as they open, and we'll get that fixed up.

Not sure what the heck is going on with the cats, but I suspect wringing their fuzzy little necks would be sub-optimal in the long run.

Re: Eardrum rupturing
Same here which I why I feel for her. I constantly had ear infections and have partial hearing in my left ear due to the eardrum perforating twice. Glad Bob got home as quick as he could,there was no doubt in my mind that her daddy would be there. In case no one has said it in awhile you both are really great parents,justsoyaknow.
