So this day is FINALLY winding down - we are SOOOOOO pooped! We just got back from the rally to support marriage rights, after a proposal was defeated in the NY Judiciary today (GRRRRR)...
Here's the thing that was SO draining to deal with:
Not only did Malka Pooka Palka pop another tooth out, which woke her up at 4:30am; but we had to clear all the crap out from under our bed, strip the bed and get ready for the delivery of said new king sized bed between 7 and 11am. I left for work at 8:30am, and got a frantic call at 11ish, saying that Cougar had JUST.PEED.ON.THE.NEW BED.
Malka was sleeping, but Cougar (who is now snuggled on my lap, just in case anyone was worried) was THIS CLOSE to being thrown out of the window. By Narda. So I come home from work, to help deal with the cat, the bed and the baby. Because of Cougar's "issues," and "frequent flier miles" with the whole "pishy department," we have this stuff called Nature's Miracle. It's an enzyme thing. So we are using that, and letting it dry out, and re-spraying, and letting it dry out, and re-spraying, and, well, you get the picture. I called the Mattress store, and asked if "cat peeing on the bed 10 minutes after the delivery guys leave" was covered under warranty. Sadly, it's not. ARGH. So before we totally douse our new bed with vinegar, we're giving the enzyme thing a whirl, and since there's a fan on the bed, to help it dry, I've yanked the mattress off of the guest bed, and am sleeping on THAT in the living room, while Narda sleeps on the couch. I know that we had succcess with the vinegar dousing on the living room rug, and we just had to endure the house smelling like vinegar for a few days, so we'll do that if we have to, but UGH!
So much for our first night on our new king bed.
