The Day from HELL

Yesterday started out just like any other day. At 9:51 a.m. my cell phone rang. I didn't recognize the number, but I could tell from the prefix it was from the city I lived in until I got divorced. I answered the phone and it is the city animal services. They tell me they've got my dogs. Well, the dogs stayed with my ex when I moved. I asked how they even knew they were my dogs and they said a neighbor told them. I got off the phone with animal services and call my ex. He has no idea how the dogs got out of the house. He didn't even leave them outside for the day. I then call my old next door neighbor to see if she is the one that gave animal control my phone number. She was. She said she woke up and there were police, a locksmith and a moving van outside my ex's house. I guess the ex should have paid his mortgage! So I call him back and tell him what's going on. Isn't it sad that I'm the one who figures out WTF is going on and he has no clue? Just one of the many reasons for the divorce. Needless to say, he is temporarily homeless. He's staying with his mother until he can move into an apartment. Now the 2 dogs who I love dearly and have missed so much are staying with me until the ex can get into his apartment. It has not been the most pleasant of experiences. One of the harnesses for the dogs is too small, so I can only walk one of them at a time. While I was walking one, the other one pooped inside and stepped in it, tracking it all over the carpet. Argggggh!!! At least my cat and the dogs seemed to be getting along fine. I just can't wait to see what I'll find when I get home from work today. So, how was your day?

I am so, so, so, SO sorry. My ex pulled a few stunts . . . and it is so difficult when kids are involved.

Hopefully . . . maybe things will settle down a bit soon.

Thanks for the hugs, guys! I just keep telling myself that it's only temporary. I was on the verge of a panic attack of epic proportions though. At least the weekend is almost here!
