Can you smell what we are dealing with?!?!?!?

Words couldn't describe the kind of day that I had today. Really. And since it is currently 1 in the morning I'm not even going to try to describe my c-r-a-z-y life.

Instead I will show you what I have been doing for the last hour and a half:

Here I am ready for battle...

So Kellie and I were playing with Photoshop when all of a sudden we smelled skunk. Strong. Very strong. Very, very strong.

And then I remembered that Titan was outside.

When we looked at him out the backdoor we saw him freaking, rolling in the grass and frantically running all over the yard. Ugh, we knew right away that he had an encounter with the skunk!

After googling what to do to get rid of the smell, Big D Lamar went to get our supplies while Kellie and I got "dressed" for duty. Can you tell by out pants what our husbands do for a living?

And this isn't even the worse part. The worst part is that Titan killed the skunk. The baby skunk! And so here Kellie and I sit and wait for the Animal Control people to come and get the dead skunk. At 1 am.

Did I mention that we have 7 kids to care for tomorrow? I smell another adventure tomorrow...actually I don't smell anything right now except for skunk. Ugh, what a day!!

My favorite part is that they said animal control will be here soon since they didn't tell us to put the head in the freezer. Seriously.
The skunk was like the icing on the cake of our day... that should tell you about our day!!
All I can say is I love you and your family - even the DOG!!

UGH...skunk smell is the WORST...especially at 1AM. Hope Titan gets to smellin' like his ol' self soon.

PS. Those are quite fashionable rubber gloves you have on there. *wink*

I love that you were able to google before you started, instead going through the possible treatments one by one! what did you end up using anyway?

Maybe you can research skunks tomorrow? or, have a blindfolded smelling contests? winner gets...

Oh my...that's quite a way to start the day but I bet you'll look back and have lots of laughs about it later! :D If I had to do something yucky/smelly like that I'd want to have such a good friend to do it with too! Hope you both get that much needed R & R today!

Oh my goodness, oh my goodness, oh my goodness. I can't believe it. It's amazing that you two looked happy in the midst of all of that, or were those faces of exasperation. As bad as that seemed, you will remember that time shared with each other forever - that's pretty special in a weird, twisted way.

Oh friend, what a day.

That skunk didn't know who he was messing with! You two look like you mean business. Poor Titan, he probably thought he was going to make you guys so proud following his retriever instincts!

ps. glad to see you two donning the scrubs- that is at least one perk in this whole "wife of a doc" thing, right?

pps. are there skunks in Korea?

Oh, that's gross. My mom got sprayed by a skunk when she was a kid and she said she almost died from the smell.
