Speaking of stinky goo. I meant to post about this before, but forgot. On the bottom of my left foot where my middle toe connects to the ball hurt like crazy, but I didn't see anything, no cuts, bruises, etc. Until Thursday morning when it felt like I was walking on a marble. So I looked and there was this white blob on my foot. Without thinking about it I poked at it.

Well, said blob was apparently a pus filled blister and the white goo that came out was just putrid. I cleaned out the area and slapped a bandaid on with some antibacterial ointment and it's healing nicely. No clue what I did to myself, but that was just foul.

Reika- my brother had something similar and in amongst all the gunk and goo was a teeny tiny splinter - he'd stepped on a piece of wood weeks earlier and pulled the biggest pieces out but the single tiny bit that was still in there got wrapped up in a ball of pus that exploded one afternoon when he was at work.
He had to call Mum to get her to bring him in his spare boots and some fresh socks, and to toss out the boots he had been wearing after two weeks of trying (and failing) to get the stink out of them.
... it might frighten them.
Victoria,

It's possible I stepped on something and didn't realize it. And your poor brother, at least this happened with my shoes off.

I've been in and out of the hospital this week, and sent home on high powered pain killers (yay, morphine!).  So, yesterday, I decided I really needed a shower, and was smart enough to make sure I did that at my boyfriend's house instead of my own where I would have no help.  Unfortunately, I wasn't smart enough to make him sit in the bathroom with me.  Of course, I lost my balance getting out of the shower.  His is a shower that has a door, so there's a metal track on the sides where the door latches.  I also have body jewelry on the sensitive girl parts of the upper torso.  Well, I used to have a matching set.  I don't any more.  When I lost my balance the horseshoe on my right side caught the track for the shower door and ripped completely out.  The resulting wound is rather gross looking.


 :o :o :o :o

Ouch. Ouch. Ouch. Ouch.

Given that I'm alternating between percocet and morphine, the pain isn't really an issue.  I'm pretty sure that if I wasn't on such strong pain killers, it would be a different story, but as it is, I'm just marveling at the grossness of that particular piece of anatomy being split in two.

Thats what made me say ouch. The mental vision of that just makes mine hurt in sympathy.

*strangled squeaking noise*
*clutches own anatomy protectively*

My reaction exactly. YE GODS OW OW OW

Glad to know I'm not the only one protectively clutching the girlz

Came home from work to find that the cats puked on my bed.  Not just a little pile of puke either - the vomit patches covered about 1/3 of the bed.  The wet part of the puke soaked through to the mattress  >:(  I'm so glad I didn't make the bed before I left for work, because I'm down to one blanket and it was on the other end of the bed.

This is why I have a waterproof mattress pad on all beds in my house. Y'never know what'll happen! My mattress is 15 years old but still looks brand new.

I'm productive in the way of the phlegm. It's so hard to look professional while one is attempting to keep from expelling phlegm.

Yup.  Waterproof mattress pad or vinyl cover, and I long ago gave up on any bed linens that can't be easily washed and dried.  Domino used to pee on my bed if he didn't think the litter box was clean enough.

We can tell that the kittens' ringworm is starting to clear up, because the patches are getting scabby.

Hope it isn't bothering them, poor babies.

I should add, I don't have cats, but when my DD was young she'd sleep with me and while potty training that thing saved the mattress a couple times, and I have dogs, one of whom sleeps with me now, who in six years has only had one accident in my bed (yay!) I was very pleased to find a mattress pad that is not crinkly in the slightest, like the old plastic ones, and is breathable so I don't overheat while I sleep (with my 12-lb dachshund-shaped furnace)

Ms_Cellany, I hope your kittens are all better soon! Give 'em some extra lovings :)

The cat has been on antibiotics.

Which has upset her digestive tract.  I'm not spelling out what that means because for some reason I start smelling it again if I think about it too much.

Found dried patches of nastiness in the dining room, the rubber backed carpet under the litter box, and next to the litter box in the laundry room.  I scraped a lot of nastiness up with a metal scraper...now to decide if I clean it with a lot of bleach & boiling water or just place it with the "cleaning tools" against future need...

Then I scrubbed the stone tile floor in the laundry room, hosed off & scrubbed the rubber backed carpet & left it to dry outside, then scrubbed the ceramic tile & the wool area rug in the dining room. 

Then I went into the shower and scrubbed myself quite thoroughly. 

Cleaning rags were washed with bleach & hot water twice.  Once to get the soil off and once to get the memory of the soil off & make sure that the rags were disinfected.

Kitty is feeling much better three days after the last dose of meds...but we're watching the cleaned areas to make sure that they stay clean.

Let sleeping dragons be.......morning breath......need I say more?

Normally, I also have a waterproof pad on it, but it was in the to-do pile of laundry :(

- Nipping outside to take something to the bin and treading on a snail or slug. In bare feet.  ???
 
- Finding a half eaten yoghurt behind the sofa bed.  In front of MIL.  And having NO IDEA how long it had been there for.  It smelled bad.  :-[
 
- On cleaning out the cupboard/fridge before said MIL arrived...finding an unidentified container.  Opening said container.  Being floored by a smell of off fish.  Spending 10 minutes vomiting into the toilet.
 
- Receiving a text from DH asking you to "do something" about blocked sink. Yeah, an hour or so before MIL arrives.  DS is playing in front room, perfectly well occupied.  So off I trundle to the bathroom, armed with a brand new plunger.  Which I use. Relentlessly.  Then with one big plunge, a load of gunk comes up the plughole.  I know not what is in this gunk, but it looks pretty disgusting and the smell makes me heave.  Cue another 10 minutes vomiting into the toilet.  Then I had to somehow get rid of it.  In the end I put a plastic bag over my hand and, retching, managed to somehow get it in the bag and put that bag in another bag so I could transfer it to the outside bin. Gah. Reminded me of omy cat's hairballs.
 
When I had got over my little puking spate (yeah, it happens, I deal with it), I decided to simply pour a copious quantity of drain unblocker down the sink.  I have no idea what that stuff has in it, but thank goodness it worked and
