I've slipped into the 26th chapter of my life. I feel like I'm in a mine cart in Donkey Kong Country, plunging down into the depths of older age, leaving behind all the sunlight and effervescence of my youth. Fuck. I JUST WANT TO BASK IN IT, YOU KNOW? It's going to be gone, like a passing stranger on the sidewalk, there goes my 20's, 30's, 40's. Someday, if I'm lucky, I'm going to be sitting on some porch in the very distant future, typing on this blog from some air keyboard on a hologram screen. I'm sure I'll have better things to say by then. I'm not in a hurry to find out.I have flashes of memory from my second birthday party on my Grandma's lawn in Springfield. There were kiddie pools--the bright blue, hard plastic kind--and there was a slip'n'slide. The were little balloons floating in the pools. I remember someone stuck a bow from a present in my hair, and it ripped some of my hair out when my cousin pulled it off. I remember being sat on a picnic table bench with a cousins, being served cake, and one of those jerks pulled that bow off. But I can't say which one. That was 24 years ago. I could walk under the picnic table my cake was on, and I did.
I feel like I spend a lot of time thinking about how I'll probably never be able to walk under a table again.
Where do you bathe her?2008-09-24 07:44:27 by katmom529
Dakota won't set foot in a bathroom, she hasn't since we got her at 6 months old. She weighs 68 pounds now and there is no way my preg arse is dragging her in there!!
If it's warm enough, just get one of those hard plastic kiddie pools and do it outside. That's what we have to do for Koda; she will chase the spray from our hose nozzle for HOURS, so we wet her down good then get her into the pool and soap her down. We let her out and spray her down to rinse her. Done, not one bit of struggle!! LOL
