mishaps and show us your pets

We have had a WEEK. I mean, seriously.

I will tell you the story of my Thursday afternoon and you can understand. And this was just icing on the cake.

I picked Rory up from school and came home. Just the normal. When I got home I put my  car key (it fell off the key chain and I hadn’t put it back on like an idiot) in my pocket and got out of the car. I shut the door and then went to open Ryder’s door and it was locked. And then I realized I just locked the kids in the car. Now, any normal person would freak out. Me? I laughed. I couldn’t help it. I just laughed. Because sometimes thats what you have to do.

So I called the sheriff’s department and they called the fire department. Within about ten minutes we had two firetrucks in front of our house. And then they couldn’t get the car open with their tools so the police came. And the police had the same tools. So they called a wrecker. So in front of my house was two firetrucks, two police cars and a wrecker. LOVELY. They got into the car and my kids were only a little traumatized, so that was a success.

And my main question for myself the ENTIRE time was this- WHY OH WHY did I not turn Elmo on when I picked her up from school?! It would have made things much more pleasant.

So since this week was a bit dramatic and my kids were bipolar at best (still, I do love them so much), I thought we’d lighten it up and I’d go along with Kelly’s Korner Show Us Your Life topic this week- Show us your Pets!

Meet Jackson.

Jackson is a Jack Russel Terrier. We got Jackson our first year of marriage and he was our baby for so long. He has been such a great dog.

Now that we have kids, he likes to make us feel really guilty by shooting looks like this at us all the time:

(All I have to say is, if you didn’t wake up my babies so much you’d probably get more attention! ha!)

He loves to chase squirrels. In fact, that’s his sole mission in life. He eats, sleeps, and breathes to chase squirrels. Unfortunately, this means he sometimes kills the squirrels.

Jackson also loves water. He loves any form of water. He will run through sprinklers, jump off diving boards into pools, and chase waves at the ocean.

And then there’s Jersey.

Normally Jersey looks like this:

Jersey is a long haired Jack Russel Terrier. We got her nappy hair cut and she was completely traumatized for about a month. She is the polar opposite of fun loving Jackson. She is weird. She is scared of her own shadow. She is convinced the world is out to get her.

And somehow we love her.

We also had a fish….

And we all know what happened with  “the bish”. Poor, poor bish. Well when we got back from being in the hospital for Ryder’s surgery the fish was dead. May his blessed little traumatized, chewed up soul rest in peace.

I really want to get something else for Rory, but I am scared. As I should be.

Hope you have a great weekend!
