The Blanket Debacle

Way back before any of you lovely people were reading this blog, back on Day 11 in fact, I wrote about a special sober treat I bought myself (as a side note it is funny to go back and read these older posts now).  My treat was the softest, comfiest, most wonderful blanket in the entire world.  I had gotten quite attached to it, snuggling up with it every night...my reminder of how much better sleep is when sober.  

Yesterday I decided to skip the gym as I've been sick.  My plan was to bring this treasured blanket out of it's place on my bed and into the living room and curl up with it and watch mindless TV all day.  All was going according to plan and I was having a nice relaxing day until I decided to run to the store for some cold medicine and...

MY DOGS TOOK MY PRECIOUS BLANKET OUTSIDE AND FUCKING ATE IT!

I wish I could blame someone other than myself.  My dogs have been known to eat everything from socks to sweatshirts to hats.  I was planning to be so careful with my blanket and only use it for a few hours before returning it to the bedroom.

I was so mad (and sad) that I cried!  Last night I really missed it.

  1. Jeezem! A pox on those dogs! How dare they eat your sacred blanket. Are you feeling any better? My cats have ruined all of my furniture if it makes you feel any better. But I still love them. Hope you're having a good sober weekend.

    Hugs,

    1. My son got a birthday invitation yesterday and the dogs had eaten it before I even got a chance to get home and read it! But yes, I still love them. I can't buy the same one because it was a seasonal item at Costco...and I sort of feel like I should "teach myself a lesson" for leaving it out in the first place. But I'll keep my eyes open for a good sale!

  3. Dear TMSN,
    I know what you mean about blankets!
    I love blankets and pillows!
    I had a dog that loved to eat soap.
    Didn't help him smell any better!
    Sometimes, we just have to cry!
    Peace and Hugs!

  5. I know the feeling! I turned my precious Kindle on the other day, only to have the screen morph into some weird Etch-a-Sketch design mixed with random letters. I bawled my eyes out.

    Hang in there, sister!
