A typical day in my life looks like…

I was thinking about how to answer this sentence as I walked my dog a couple of nights ago. Yeah, the same dog who refuses to poop in the backyard which is a good thing when it means that I’m forced to take more steps and breathe fresh air and blah blah blah but a bad thing because his unwillingness to poop in our yard doesn’t change even when there’s a hurricane.

While walking him, I’d come to the conclusion that a typical day in my life is just late. The fact that I’m completeing my Finish the Sentence Friday post on Saturday pretty much says it all.

OMG-we-are-late-for

However, this has been one of the most atypical weeks of my life.  I hit myself in the face with dog poop.  And that’s not all.  My huge bloggie crush, Jillsmo, asked me to guest post about not having a diagnosis. Seeing my very own words on her super-awesomely-cool site is mind-blowing. Hers is the first blog I found when searching for answers on whether Tucker has autism or not. She draws less-stupider-than-mine-but-still-stupid-looking pictures. Pretty much every opinion she has about the autism community and trying to navigate it and, well, everything, is one that I not only usually share, but respect.  She’s smart, people.  And funny.  So yeah, I have a huge crush on her. How could I not?  So many of us are trying to find our bloggie voices, figure out how to monetize, how to get likes and subscribers and sponsors and she’s like “My readers may be interested in your product but I am not interested in informing them, so please don’t tell me about it.” (Taken from her Do you have a product page. Awesome.) Without becoming an even more excitable asshole about it, I just say, check out my guest post on Yeah. Good Times. If you don’t feel like reading more of my drivel, read some of her posts. The serious ones and the autism ones will amaze you. The funny ones will leave you with pee in your pants. I’m not exaggerating.  Plus, she’s really adorable.  See? This is her profile picture.

To add to the excitement of the week, a for-real published-and-everything book included some of my words and drawings.  You can buy it here (or from the home page – right hand side) if you want to.  It’s only $2.99.  I was also on Messy Moms radio.  Told you it was a bizarre week.

What.

OH! Right. I hit myself in the face with dog poop. For real. Apparently, I am able to fuck up even the most mundane of tasks.  Chief has chronic diarrhea which means that he can not eat anything but Iams large breed.  Ever.  When he does, he gets diarrhea and craps everywhere.  His condition means that I have to avoid him finding random objects like bones and prevent him from swallowing them.  Like this:

I hit myself in the face with dog poop

Good to know that it actually is possible to even dumber than I’d realized.

*Note:  You would think that after typing the word “diarrhea” however many times I had to for this post would mean that I now actually know how to spell it.  You would be wrong.

  • Janine Huldie - I still have to check the spelling of diarrhea even now and you would think after having two poop making machines in the form of my girls, I would know but alas that would not be. That said I never tire of your humor or your drawings and thank you for linking up with us as always!! 🙂April 6, 2013 – 4:28 pmReplyCancel

    • admin - Thanks for hosting, Janine! And for commenting. And for forgiving me that it’s now Saturday.April 6, 2013 – 4:40 pmReplyCancel

  • Jean Heff - I’m sorry you got poop-faced. Isn’t it nice that bloggers always have something to think about, even when dealing with dog poo?
    You are passing on the good vibes of your favorite bloggers, I think. You are definitely in my group of bloggers I look up to for always writing on point and being so kind.April 6, 2013 – 4:46 pmReplyCancel

    • admin - Aw, Jean! I’m so flattered and feel the same about you. Thank you. And my very first thought when I hit myself in the face with a bag of dog poop was that it’d be good blog material. Maybe there’s something wrong with me.April 6, 2013 – 5:45 pmReplyCancel

  • Rachel - One of the reasons why we have not gotten a dog is because I don’t want to have to deal with any more poop than I already have to. I loved the slow motion pictures of the poop incident, complete with the dog’s commentary! And I love how you turned a prompt about a typical week into one about your atypical one. I wish you many, many more of the atypical ones, of which you are incredibly deserving (sans poop in the face).April 6, 2013 – 4:59 pmReplyCancel

    • admin - Thank you Rachel! You’re so amazingly sweet. The dog is actually worth it. Really. But yeah, more poop? Although, over at your place, at least it would be Tao like. Which means you’d probably not hit yourself with dog poop in the face. So there’s that.April 6, 2013 – 5:47 pmReplyCancel

  • The Sadder But Wiser Girl - Oh noooooo! I’m trying not to laugh but it soooo sounds like something that would happen to me Kristi! Instead of saying “here’s mud in your eye” you could invent a new expression- “Here’s dog poop in your face.”

    Oh I still have to read your post for Jilismo (says the mom whose child also does not have a diagnosis). Heading over there now!April 6, 2013 – 5:26 pmReplyCancel

    • admin - It’s okay to laugh. I’m pretty sure I’m the only person this has ever happened to. Like ever. And hey! I’m going to have to start using that expression! Thank you. And thanks for heading over to Jillsmo’s too. Mwah!April 6, 2013 – 5:48 pmReplyCancel

  • Jen - I love you, and I am totally cracking up! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gotten dog poop on my hands. GEEROOOOOSSSS! Daisy, the little dog, is sensitive to everything, one time in the winter she had diarreah twice, and I only had one bag. I picked it up with my gloves! WTF??? Yes I did, and I didn’t even through the gloves away! I soaked them in bleach, then washed them in more bleach and voila! Cause there was no way I was buying a new pair of gloves! Then I started writing a post called “My New Motto: Bleach Everything!” that was after a particular bad bought of Daisyness. I abandoned it thinking who the heck would care. Maybe you would? He he!
    See, we were meant to be! MWAH!!! TTTx10 <3April 6, 2013 – 5:54 pmReplyCancel

    • Jen - I spelled bout wrong. Sorry, and diarrhea.April 6, 2013 – 5:54 pmReplyCancel

    • admin - You picked up dog poop with your gloves? Wow, you are dedicated. Seriously. And yes, I care. TTTx10 Mwah!April 6, 2013 – 6:59 pmReplyCancel

  • Emily - So of course I’m going to focus on the poop part of this post…if you haven’t tried it, feed your dog a raw meat diet. Certain pet stores sell frozen raw meat patties for dogs. The thinking now is that it’s healthier for dogs since that is what their ancestors (I.e., wolves) ate. Although its expensive (I joke that it costs more to feed my dog than my kids), the big benefit is that their poops are VERY solid — makes for easy cleanup! No more poop in face!! Anyway, just thought I’d mention it in case you want to try it. Otherwise, you can write me off as one of those crazy dog people.:)April 6, 2013 – 6:08 pmReplyCancel

    • admin - But of course! Why wouldn’t you? I probably should have made it its very own post but it’s still fresh on my face. I mean mind. I’ve not tried the raw meat idea but am open to anything that would help. So thank you! Chief had giardia when he was a baby in the shelter, and I think it messed him up forever. But it’d be awesome to be able to give him his arthritis meds without Imodium, so I’m going to check out the raw meat thing! Thanks 🙂April 6, 2013 – 7:01 pmReplyCancel

  • Robin - Having raised Seeing Eye puppies for the last 10 years I could tell you poop stories that would make you cry. Just this past weekend we took the pups to the airport to expose them to the procedures in place for service animals. Of course MY pup not only set off every damn alarm (he finally had to go commando thru the metal detector and the TSA agent had to catch him on the other side) he then POOPED right in the middle of a LONG hallway thru the different gates. I swear he was trying to impress a cute little female pup ahead of him. I had to stoop down to clean up and in my haste to catch up with the crew dragged my hand right thru it! One of the TSE agents stayed behind with me and not wanting to totally gross him out I pretended nothing had happened. I tossed everything in a bag and put the bag in my backpack (I didn’t have a choice!) SO I spent the next 20 min of the tour with my poopy hand held out to the side and the other controlling the dog. When I was finally able to duck into a restroom I quickly sterilized my hand and unloaded my backpack. Normally I would NEVER dispose of a bag of poop in an indoor trash can but the smell emanating from my backpack was just too much. My concern is that several hours later when some poor janitor went to empty the garbage he found what he might have suspected was a bomb and called the authorities! I’d wrapped the poop in THREE black coloroed poop bags which each time had collected some air so to some I’m sure it would look “suspicious”. I won’t bore you with stories of the dogs who just have to go for the “kick back” after pooping….April 8, 2013 – 2:59 pmReplyCancel

    • admin - First, raising seeing eye puppies sounds amazing! What a cool thing to do. Hahah to your pup impressing the female pup ahead of him and for YOU having to hold your poopie hand our until you could sneak into a bathroom. And the poor janitor! Hahah! THanks for the great laugh. Oh and do you have a blog? If so the URL didn’t come through – would love to give you comment love back. And read about your cool puppies!April 8, 2013 – 4:48 pmReplyCancel

      • Robin - Raising the pups is a blast! Something funny always happens when taking the pup someplace for the first time. Granted I didn’t find the airport debacle particularly amusing but my twisted compatriots sure did. Thats gonna go down in club history, “remember the time London laid a huge log at gate 9?” But if I hear one more “I could never give them back” from john q public i can’t be held responsible for my response. This implies I either have a heart that is stone cold or one of solid gold, neither of which is true. I enjoy spending my day chasing after little ankle biters (my kids are now grown) and stepping on ragged nylabones. Who doesn’t love a fuzzy little puppy? I’ve often considered starting a blog about puppy raising BUT TSE is very strict about any PR on the pups. They don’t want any negative vibes resonating on the World Wide Web. It’s bad for business. The pups ARE their property so we have to abide by their rules. But in my warped opinion a censored blog is a BORING blog. Trust me, I read one of my friend’s in order to put myself to sleep at night. I prefer to see things form a humorous perspective even if I have to back up to Bulgaria to find it (or perhaps gate 12?).

        • admin - Of course it will go down in history! How can it NOT? In fact, I’m going to have to start telling the story myself to make up for all the times I get poop on my hand because I forget to check for holes in the bag. DUMB….

          One thing I’m learning more and more is that people are oblivious. I’m sure that they mean it (it being “I don’t think I could do that) to be ultimately about their own statement about themselves. Sadly that’s almost always the case. For real. “Oh I couldn’t blah blah blah barf” is SO much about them posturing themselves. Don’t take it about you. Really. I hate it when people say that it must be so much harder for me to raise a kid with special needs. Hello peeps. We know nothing else. Seriously. Everything is hard. And everything is easy if you compare it to some BS.

          Anyway.

          I wanted to make sure I wasn’t missing a chance to know you through your blog. I get that you can’t (although I’d LOVE to see pics of each puppy in his or her training program because EEEP).

          PS I almost had my dog trained as a special needs dog because when I first moved to the east coast and went to Colorado all the time, I didn’t want him to fly in the cargo bin. 😀April 8, 2013 – 11:47 pmReplyCancel

          • Robin - Oh I started BUYING my poop bags (my hand went on thru one too many times) and it has SO been worth it! I use dogpoopbags.com (yes there is a website for EVERYTHING) and they give me a discount for the service pups. Most of my pups have been pretty big so I need the industrial strength and size.
            I’m sure your dog is awesome but please don’t EVER claim him as a service dog to gain access. Can’t tell you how many times I run into psuedo service dogs! I’ve even had some lunge and snap at my pups (and one attacked). It’s a real pet peeve of mine and all service dog handlers I know. Sad but people will claim anything to get Fido into the corner restaurant or hotel. I have no beefs with well mannered and well groomed dogs but yappy little “Fifi” who snaps at my calm Golden in training is NOT a true service dog!!! ARG! ARF!April 9, 2013 – 9:09 am

  • Stacey - I should not laugh, but I did. I have never been hit in the face by dog poop, but like you, if it were to happen to anyone, it would be to me. Probably the closest funny story I have to that is when my oldest son was a few days old. He had not pooped since we got home from the hospital. I was so concerned, called my husband, called the hospital nursery, trying to figure out what to do. My dad was staying with us, helping out, and happened to be in the nursery when I went to change a diaper. As soon as the diaper came off, poop about the thickness of a straw shot about two foot out, all over the crib and bedding. Nice. My dad laughed so hard he nearly fell over. I cried.

    Anyway, I enjoyed your guest post. The son in the above story is now four. He had speech problems but I was constantly told he was just lazy in his speech. He began speaking at age 2.5 years, when we enrolled him in day care. His speech blossomed but he still had problems forming words. At his four year check-up this past August, he was recommended for speech therapy, which he started in October. He was classified as having been speech delayed. Duh, I knew that. Someone, I don’t know who, recommended him for an OT evaluation in December. Current diagnosis is SPD along with motor skills delay but it may be more; we won’t know until we see a team of experts in three weeks.

    Also, like you and your son, mine (both of them actually; I have a two year old who shows many SPD, possibly aspie signs) is awesome and I pretend to be. Unlike me, though, you are awesome. The end.April 8, 2013 – 4:51 pmReplyCancel

  • admin - Stacey,
    Laugh away! The story about your son projectile pooping on the bedding and crib is hilarious. The fact your dad was laughing so hard he almost fell over while you cried is something I can so completely relate to! Awesome story 🙂
    I’m glad you enjoyed the guest post!
    What IS it that people tell us our kids are lazy or whatever when they are NOT and have actual for-real struggles with speech? It’s so frustrating. I’m glad your son began getting speech therapy. I wish you the best of luck in getting some answers and things you can do to help him at your appointment in three weeks.
    And AWWW you are so AWESOME.April 8, 2013 – 5:04 pmReplyCancel

  • admin - Robin,
    The thread isn’t letting me add any more so hopefully you’ll still see this. You are a wise woman to buy your poop bags! And really? People actually claim their dogs are service dogs? Wow. That’s crazy. Don’t they have to pass a test and get a certificate and stuff?
    My dog is indeed awesome and while he is probably smart enough to handle the training, I am much too lazy to ever actually pursue it. Plus, he’s 11 1/2 now so even if I weren’t lazy, I think that ship has sailed.
    That SO sucks that some pseudo service dog attacked one of yours! Yikes. Can you report the fakers to the dog academy or something?April 9, 2013 – 10:01 amReplyCancel

        • Kristi - Ah, new friend. Never grow completely up. I think that’s the trick to it all. Finding humor in our own fuckups is necessary. I had my first and only son at 40 (long, boring, sometimes sad story and you can find that shiza here if you’re inclined). I’m an open book only to an extent. I still censor even though I’m trying harder not to. Trust me, there is a LOT that you peeps will never know. That nobody will ever know. Which is how it should be. But also, anybody who writes will say the same thing – write your own life. Write what happened today that made you laugh, or cry, or reflect, or want to punch your neighbor in the nose. That’s the stuff that is great. But you already know that. Because you already did that in your post about your druncles and your mom. And it was bloody awesome. You are MY new blog idol… OH and also? Sometimes, I think it’s fun to make the story a surprise. Like this one: http://www.findingninee.com/the-intervention/

          Sometimes too I want people to just know where I’m coming from and feeling all sad and crying-y, like this one: http://www.findingninee.com/what-being-a-special-needs-mom-feels-like/

          But usually? I’m just keeping on keeping on. Like all of us humans are. Maybe the zombies, too, ’cause they seem to be gaining exposure.April 14, 2013 – 1:02 amReplyCancel

          • MJM - I never will grow up…I may be an old fogey on the outside…yelling at the young whippersnappers to get off my lawn…but on the inside I’m still a young immature little kid.

            You are so right…you speak very wise words…and I must say I freaking love your attitude and your outlook on life. You are one of the people who make this life great…who helps others smile and feel good when things are bad.

            I know what you mean about not always knowing what to write…that is why I started two blogs…one for my gaming addiction…and the other for all the random nonsense I come up with.

            I can’t do serious…I tried…many times before…but I just can’t do it.

            I would like to read the story of you and your son…if it’s something that is important to you…than it is not boring. Could you please send me the link…I’m too lazy to look for it?

            Thanks for the links…I really enjoyed both…obviously for different reasons.April 14, 2013 – 2:49 pm

  • Kristi - MJM- ran out of room on that comment thread to reply so doing so here. I hope I’m just like you when I’m REALLY old (’cause I’m already sort of old now and am able to hang on to my immaturity like a fuckin’ champ!). And yeah, I have a hard time knowing whether this is two blogs or one. Bottom line? I’m really too lazy to make it two. Oh and the stories about my son and I (you mean the beginning right?) can be found if you go to the home page, there’s a black menu-bar under the header. There’s a few pages (I need to update) with The Story. There’s stuff about all of that. There’s also an About section if you’re interested. And thank you for your SUPER AWESOME comments and for being my new favorite. 😀April 14, 2013 – 8:59 pmReplyCancel

    • MJM - I was wondering why I didn’t get an email telling me you replied…it was because you started a new thread…I thought you forgot me…but now I see said the blind man.

      You old…no way…now me…I’m old…when God said let there be light…I flicked the switch.

      You want to be like me…now way…I want to be like you…you freaking rock.

      I was lazy too…but it had to be done…I didn’t want to scare people away thinking I was just about video games…because I’m so much more (yeah right).

      • Kristi - You have no idea how flattered I am. Seriously. Hahah to flicking the switch! I’m all for the video games that I loved then (give me some old school Centipede and I’ll kick anybody’s ass) and love now (Scramble with friends on iPhone because I’m idiotically busy – who said I should take a job for 25 hours a week? oh. right. that was me. duh.), but would never have enough to write about them…which just proves that we write what we know. And don’t always know what we write. ER. Um yah, it’s 12:31 am and I’m supposed to have posted something new again right? Gah.

        I SO APPRECIATE you trolling through the old stuff. Seeing your comment on one made me remember when I was so excited to get one comment. Crazy how this blogging world works, isn’t it.April 15, 2013 – 12:25 amReplyCancel

        • MJM - Trust me…the feeling is mutual…I found a diamond in the rough right here.

          Video games are great…such a good way to blow off steam…and work your aggression out. Don’t be ashamed to play them girl…let loose and play hard.

          3 glasses of wine…you go party animal…I can’t even take NyQuil without getting a buzz…I’m a lightweight.

          I plan on going through all your blogs…I just need the time…and the eyes…looking at the computer too long makes my eyes go crazy.April 15, 2013 – 12:34 amReplyCancel

          • Kristi - I hear that (eyes going crazy). In fact, I sat down here three hours ago and was planning to write. But a friend of mine and I were chatting on FB and now here we are….late. Oh and those wine glasses were spread out over way too long to actually help anything anymore. Haha to NyQuil giving you a buzz. You said you’re old. I’m like the oldest mom to a 3-year old of anybody I know so I’m pretty sure I’ve got you beat!
            Also. You asked about the story pages before – did you find them? And I think this thread will run out soon too. Does your blog have a page on FB? Also I might have to go to sleep. No school tomorrow (dammit!). And yes, that’s related. As in I am entertaining boy who seems to have realized recently that naps are optional. Nite new best friend.April 15, 2013 – 12:40 am

  • MJM - My eyes are shot…which really sucks because I need them…but I guess that’s what glasses are for.

    Isn’t Facebook grand…I can waste so much time on there…doing nothing more than shooting the poop. I don’t have a Facebook page dedicated to my blogs…why do you think I should? Message me on Facebook and I’ll give you my email address…so that way we can chat without worrying about “running out of space”.

    Hey a lady never tells her age…oh wait a minute that’s not what I meant…I’m a man baby…hell yeah! I’m 36 and only getting older…which sucks…not because I want to die or anything but because I want my youth back.

    The blog I commented on was the earliest I’ve seen…but I’m still looking through them.

    Goodnight my friend…pleasant dreams and talk to you soon.April 15, 2013 – 12:48 amReplyCancel

    • Kristi - Haha, I’m older than you so trust me about knowing that I wish I had some youth back. I don’t know if you should have a FB page for each of your blogs or not – but I do. And I do get some traffic from them. I think people remember to check Facebook so they’ll see a notification of a post if they’re not a subscriber. But it’s also just one more thing to keep up with. So…not sure.
      Oh the earliest stuff is actually not done in post form – I had started writing some of this down before I decided to blog it, so there are static pages (available through the home page’s main menu bar – stuff like this http://www.findingninee.com/story-2/). Does that make sense?

      And I’ll say it again – I am so unbelievably flattered that you’re trolling all around Finding Ninee looking for old stuff and wanting more. Funny how one (ok fine SEVERAL) comments from you that you want to read more make me feel like all this blogging and the time it takes is worth it. Thank you again.
      Happy Monday!April 15, 2013 – 8:12 amReplyCancel

      • MJM - Stop fibbing…you are not older than I am…we all know better…we’re not stupid.

        Hmmm really Facebook drives traffic…I may just have to get on that…I need all the help I can get.

        Yes…it does make sense and I am going to read it…all of it…as soon as I can…I’m looking forward to it.

        Girl you are a great blogger…and you should know that…your stories and pictures are incredible…the world is blessed to have your blog.April 15, 2013 – 4:30 pmReplyCancel

        • Kristi - You have no idea how bad I wish you were right. Third down the list (1. Tucker is typical…2. him not being typical will be okay anyway is 3. I wish I were younger.)
          Still, you are my new BFF.April 16, 2013 – 12:29 amReplyCancel

          • MJM - I love your blog…and really enjoying reading it…and looking at all the great pics.

            You’re my BFF…now and forever.April 16, 2013 – 12:49 am

          • Kristi - Yay to having a now and forever BFF. Ditto, dude. Seriously.April 16, 2013 – 7:42 am

  • Star Wars: Battlefront| SW battlefront| - An announcement similar to this focuses his or her awareness because it is to them. Trigger Add. Possibly you might have regarded as, and even attempted, the lowering approach or merely quitting all at once.March 9, 2014 – 5:21 amReplyCancel
