For the last week we have been dealing with a foster-puppy who is very definitely NOT housebroken or crate-trained, as we had been told by the rescue agency. I have been cleaning up accidents left and right, OUR (fully housebroken) dog actually had a couple of accidents in response to the situation, and I haven't been able to get DH to pitch in. Not only that but I haven't been sleeping well at all lately (sleeping soundly, but waking VERY early in the mornings), and of course these hormones are making me hyper-sensitive.
We had a big fight today, after yet another peeing incident. It started out as me just trying to state my feelings and let DH know I have been feeling overwhelmed and underappreciated . . . but he gets pretty defensive when I criticize him in any way, and it turned into a big fight. And DH ended up leaving the house (we were supposed to go over to a friend's house, but realized today that foster-puppy can't be taken ANYWHERE), and I ended up crying for about an hour after he left.
I managed to pull myself together and get some housework done and have been trying to get past the depression that has been pulling on me all day . . . despite our fight we didn't really get anything resolved; I think DH is pretty much discounting any issues I bring up recently as "hormonal". Plus, it is just a miserable feeling to start your day out with a big ol' crying jag.
I'm trying to keep moving, though. Don't know whether to hope DH comes home soon or just stays away all evening. ETA:
Foster-puppy peed on the carpet AGAIN!
I am absolutely at my wit's end with this dog; she is a real sweetheart, but I just cannot handle cleaning up after her several times a day. The rescue agency is working on getting her into a new foster home on Monday, but I may have to seriously consider taking her back to their vet's office tomorrow morning, for my own sanity.
