I missed mancat monday because dad kept mom hopping all day long. First he was gonna help her by washing his garage towels so dey would be ready fur da spring but he put in to much soap and da machine clogged up. He hadda take da hoses apart and dat put mom back a couple hours on getting any laundry done. Den he was gonna help her by running da rug sucking monster and he couldn't get it to work! He hadda take da big tank in da basement apart cuz something was wrong with the motor. Den he was doing some stuff on da pooter and it kept going crazy, mom finally did a hard re-boot and reset it to a past time den she cleaned up da old files and stuff. While she was doing dat, dad made a mess of da kitchen making himself a snack...and mom has company coming fur brunch tomoro! Dad sed his day was so bad he shoulda stayed in bed (and mom agreed). We haf been trying to catch up wif visiting but wif dad putting so much strain on mom's time she doesn't haf hardly any left over fur us. It's about time she gots her priorities straight. I am putting my paw down, no more "taking care of" daddy. He has apposable thumbs and can help himself!
