It's a Manic Monday

Carly woke me up at 10pm last night. I could tell she was having stomach cramps. She was pulling her legs up and in toward her chest. Like a big dummy, I convinced her to lay back down. Which she did. She even closed her eyes and feel asleep. For a minute or two. She then woke up telling me she had to go "potty". So, off we went. Much to my surprise, poor Carly had already had a major accident. She was a mess. She sat on the potty and went even more. Poor kid. Guess I should have gotten her up and taken her potty before she told me...I knew she was having a stomach ache..I just never dreamed she'd have an accident.

This is how she's doing today.

Not awful, but just not herself. Thank goodness she hasn't had anymore accidents. She gets so upset with herself. Even tho I tell her, it's okay and that it's just an accident.

To top off the morning...Carly discovered that Penny, our cockapoo (dog), had been sick in our living room. Likely in the wee hours of the morning. In two different spots. Fun, NOT! I got the cleaner out, which Carly hates the smell of. It makes her gag. Me too for that matter. Got the dog puke out of my house and all cleaned up. Laundry is going and I'm off to take a shower and try to wake myself up!

Told ya, It's a Manic Monday for me today!

Gotta love Mondays. I had cat puke this morning myself. and yes I think he only pukes on Mondays.
Hope Miss Carley feels better.
