Sometimes the best laid plans don't allow time for us to deal with the unexpected. I'm not talking about anything major - just the little annoyances of daily life. It started out as a wonderful evening. The sun was shinning (3 straight days in row - a record for us!). I got out of work early so I could get a ahead start on some gardening and still have plenty of time to relax. Dinner would be a quick healthy meal using some fresh greens from the garden and grilled chicken. Before preparing our evening meal I sat down to my laptop in the dinning room to do a bit of garden blogging.
Then I walked into the living room and saw this...
There you see Ellie with a very annoyed look on her face. She's annoyed because she's got fleas and she knows that once I notice she's got them she'll be sitting in a flea bath. Unfortunately for her it didn't take me long to notice - the scratching and biting were a dead give away of course. Usually Ellie stays flea free with a monthly dose of Advantage but for some reason I missed applying the dose last month - which I didn't realize I did until I saw her scratching and went to check the calendar.
Well the evening that started off great ended up being a night of doggie bathing and general de-fleaing (I don't even think that's a word) of our house. Now I'm just as annoyed as Ellie and tired to boot.
Well tomorrow is new day - my plan for tomorrow evening - debugging the veggie garden. Now that's something to look forward to...*sigh*.
