Secretly took the day off work so I could clean the house top to bottom. I'd better get started!

You do toilets?

We have three of them that need some attention.

Don't do too good a job
Careful. Do too good a job and she'll know you can.

Then she'll know you can and wonder why you aren't.

It's a slippery slope.

Does that only happen on her birthday? I need to get with the program myself and start vacumming and dusting. The bathroon needs attention too. Happy birthday and many happy returns to your other half.

I normally help out around the house, but things have been hectic around here lately. My wife works for the Salvation Army and they are in the midst of the Christmas Crush. I work in the entertainment industry and we are experiencing a crush of our own at the theatre with all of the holiday concerts, shows, etc.

It's easy to let the housework slip, so since I still have 13 days of vacation coming, I brought a part-timer in today to cover off so that the house is nice and tidy when my wife gets home.

I'm a little on the mad side at our two furkids today. Something happened that has never happened before. One of them peed on the pillow that we keep at the side of the bed so they can have a warm place to lay during the day. I took that pillow away and replaced it with a new one, and not an hour later one ofthem had peed all over that one to. And when I say "all over", I mean all over. Since they are both females, normally they just pee in a single spot, but this looked vindictive! There was pee all over the pillow and pee all over the floor around the pillow. Whichever one did it (and I have my suspicions) they must have walked all around the pillow while the peed. Sheesh.

I also put up a Christmas Tree. Something we haven't don't in this house for years. We overdo it at work, so a I feel little motive to decor sure at home. But I thought my wife would enjoy it.

WTF is a ¨furkid¨? I'm hoping it's a cat or dog, and not an extremely hairy youth.

Those of is who don't have real kids sometimes refer to our pets as furkids. In our case it is two Chihuahuas, Maya and Bella. Maya is 15 and Bella is 7.

Look on the bright side; she (they?) used their pillow and not yours.

You're a good guy for cleaning and decorating today. But the furkids were trying to tell you, "You're doing it wrong!"

Exactly! I have had the cocker spaniel look me in the eye while I was vacuuming and lift his leg. Dad! That is not your job!

Peeing twice...
Ivana Tinkle read that and immediately said 'Get that cat to the vet, it's very likely a urinary infection'. She knows about this stuff... - I just look after the scooters.

Sounds vindictive to me. Nemo will pee if i rearrange "his" room or clean something he wants to smell like him. Things go under the bed and in 2 days, he shoves them out. Laughing emoticon I also believe they didn't like you doing it and would rather have your wife. Pets don't miss a thing. He gives me the stink eye when i clean his litter box weekly.

Ivana is correct IME. It's new behavior according to the OP. Our experience with dozens of fur kids agrees with Ivana. I keep antibiotics around for just these sorts of events. There are very inexpensive sources for those needed.

That was my first thought as well. Someone's got a UTI and my first guess would be the senior lady.
