Of days where i cannot get things accomplished.

Here is a little info about me.  I work from home now.  I record lectures for an online university.
That being said, I use a sensitive microphone and Audacity to do the recording.  The lectures are sent to me in a Word document and set up into separate slides that I have to save individually.  My computer is set up kind of in the middle of the house.  That is just the place we have room for it and my two desks.
I have two dogs.  They bark at squirrels in the yard.  They bark at the neighbors driving into their driveway.  They bark at school buses.  Do you get what I am saying here?
I also have three cats and wood floors.  The cats like to eat and loudly throw up.  The cats like to have the running yahoos all over the house.  The cats like to go in the back hallway and meow loudly just to hear the echo I assume.
All of these things conspire to not letting me get things recorded.  I start a slide when I feel all is settled, then the chaos begins.
Dogs:  OH MY GOD THE SQUIRREL IS IN THE YARD!  DO YOU SEE HIM? MOM! OH MY GOD HE IS GOING TO ATTACK!
Cats: *RUN run run run* (slide, skitter into the wall chasing a damn lizard that has gotten in the house)
Me: ALL YOU JOKERS SHUT UP!! FUCK! CANT YOU SEE I’M TRYING TO WORK!!
*dogs and cats go into hiding for a few minutes*
Then the process starts all over again.  Just now as I was typing this the dogs barked at one school bus and people walking down the street.  I now have a headache and want to scream.  I love my animals, I really do… but some days I want to strangle them all!

not my dog, but they should be scared
