Passing out; location, location, location

March 22nd, 2013 by Carrie, the Just Mildly Medicated gal

Location, location, location… it’s important in more than just real estate!
With hindsight being 20/20 I can tell you I should have chosen to clean the bathroom but instead I chose to bathe my dog.
I was pretty proud of myself, having a goldendoodle can be a lot of grooming maintenance so this was crossing a big thing off the ‘To Do’ list. It also means sitting with a blow dryer for just shy of an hour to get this sweetie pie dry. I actually love this time because its alone time and as a mom of 4 bathing the dog feels like a break.
 After about 30 minutes I felt odd and knew passing out was around the corner. This part of my world with Dysautonomia. It always amazes me how many thoughts I have in those moments beforehand. I slowly take in my immediate surroundings, this is crucial to do as soon as the feeling hits so I can have as much control over where I gracefully place my wilting frame.
Its during this survey of the land that I realize a few things
1. I am in the bathroom 2 boys share
2. This bathroom hasn’t been cleaned in exactly 7 days
3. I can actually see pee at the base of the toilet
So I wake up and honestly can’t decide if I think its funny or terrible. Obviously both because I took this pic when I came out of it so I could show you how gross it was.
My husband just saw the gross side of it and cleaned the boys bathroom when he got home, he is awesome. I still think its kind of funny.
Cute Goldendoodle pics to make you less disgusted at the state of my boys bathroom…

    And girls are so much cleaner than boys – NOT!

        I have 2 of each and only 2 bathrooms, My Hubby and I GLADLY share with the girls and leave the boys to their dungeon. My brother Growing up was the only boy in a house of girls (3-1 Girls win!) and an OCD Momma so he figured it out pretty quick. Yes girls can be messy (especially my blooming 5 year old princess/scientist, lol) but it is SOOO not the same. Not at all!

    My boys share a bathroom and it is gag-worthy. Having ended up on the floor of their rancid Petri dish more than once I can send much in the way of empathy :)

  3. This same thing has happened to me a number of times, I have 3 boys in my house so being close to the base of the toilet is definitely not what I want to be doing!

    Oh my gosh you need to find a way to pass out on the goldendoodle. She’s clean and fuzzy and she owes you for all the time you invest in blow drying her. Sorry this happend friend.

  5. Yes, those are cute goldendoodle pics! Too bad you were in the bathroom though :(

  6. I wish I had a cute doggie to wash!! LOL. As much as I feel sorry for you, I’m glad I’m not alone!!

  7. love this! most especially the cute doggie pics to take my mind off of the gross bathroom because my kid’s bathroom looks just like that right now and I am getting ready to fall asleep with my cute cuddly yet neurotic basset hound, LEO! :)

    Oh boy, the toilet is NOT the best place to pass out for sure.
    Cute dog!

  10. The only bath tub we have in our house ( out of three bathrooms) is in the boys bathroom. Never in my life have I ever smelled anything more atrocious than a toddlers bathroom. ( That is, until they puke up whole milk…awful). No one warned me about that part.

    Oh I remember those bathroom days with our boys! This has happened to me at Walmart. Thankfully the other symptoms hit me first so I ended up dropping down to the floor before I hit the floor! Your pup is so cute!
