I’d love to say that I’m enjoying a relaxing holiday weekend but truth be told, I have to work (a lot) and what little down time I have at home is pushing me to the brink.

Some of you may or may not know that I have reluctantly acquired my ex-husband’s dog, Jax. I already have a dog named Max. That in and of itself is so confusing, even the dogs are confused. If you call one, they both come. If we try to call each of them at the same time, to get them into separate  rooms, they cross back and forth before following each other in circles.

Now, I know that all sounds like such great fun, but the only thing that can possibly top that is throwing in some fireworks.

As I write this, Jax has not stopped barking long enough for me to even think, so feel free to comment that none of this post makes any sense. I wouldn’t be surprised.

Jax is barking so relentlessly, the kids are yelling for him to shut up, I’m yelling for him to shut up and my son, Marc, is yelling at me for yelling at the dog.

My poor Max is spending his weekend more like the dog in the photo below.

I can’t say that I blame him.

All I can think is its only July 1st! I don’t know about where you live, but in Connecticut fireworks are plentiful and we like to stretch fourth of July out through the entire month.

So, before I lose my mind, yelling at my dogs who can not distinguish between the letter “J” or the letter “M” or screaming out the window at the neighbors to put the damn fireworks away…

I think I’m going to order these for the entire family.

Couldn’t hurt, I mean, it is almost August, right?

  1. You always make me laugh! I love the idea of earmuffs for the dogs. If my dogs had them, one wouldn’t be able to hear the other one bark. That would be a plus right there. Although Walter would chew both of them up so that would be that. Fun fact, cause I know you have all the time in the world to read stupid trivial stuff: Chester Greenwood invented earmuffs in 1873. He lived about 30 miles from where I do and every year the town of Farmington has Chester Greenwood Day. Did I mention that I live at the end of the universe? Only here would such a thing happen!

      1. I think he specifically sent that dog to you to make him crazy. You should tell him that the little visit you got from the government ppl WAS because of him! Let him sweat a little bit.
