I Hate to Say It....

"No. I am not. No. Not looking at you. Nope."
She is guilty. You will see why in a moment.
Pooldad works two different shifts. Either he has to be to work at 7:30 am or he arrives around 11:30 am. Today was the late shift.
--
On late shift days he usually sleeps in, but today he had to make a run to the grocery store at 7 am to pick up milk for breakfast.
--
With the kids off to school by 8 am I told him he should go back to bed for a few hours and we could have coffee later, before he left. No. He didn't want to do that.
--
I asked him if he wanted some coffee now. No. He just wanted to read the paper. He waved me off sweetly, saying he was fine. Then I noticed he was falling asleep on the sofa.
--
Go to bed now I repeated. No, no...he wanted to stay up and keep me company.
--
sigh. fine. whatever.
--
There he was, on the sofa, intermittently snoozing and reading the paper when suddenly the dog, who was curled up next to him on the sofa decided that it was a good time to throw up. Yep! Lovely Spot barfed. Twice. All over the sofa, our favorite afghan and Pooldad.
--
Picture it. [You know you can] The frantic jumping up, cursing, moaning, cleaning and finally the mumbling under his breath about how "we can never have anything nice in this house between the damn dogs and the kids....".
--
I know I shouldn't have, but I couldn't resist. You know I did it, don't you?
--
I just looked at him lovingly and said "I told you to go back to bed y'know."
--
Yah, 14 years of togetherness surprises me too sometimes.
--
And how was your morning so far?

Awww hahahahahahah is Spoot OK though? Just your normal canine vom or something more serious? (People think it's weird that a dog barfing is so nothing to me... but most of the time, it is nothing! Hmph!)
I have one for you too...

Spoot the Doot is fine. She lives to aggravate her adoring Daddy another day.

He did get over this really fast as he was really concerned that his baby was okay.
