Old Cat Lady

~ ^,,^ ~
Here I sit with my Crazy Cat Lady coffee cup.
Listening to the birds sing outside.
Telling me I need to refill their food.
Riley watched bird tv every morning.
Even if the feeders are empty.
I tell him that today I will get out.
And, my hope is that today I will do it.
Simple really.
Just walk outside and refill them.
Not as easy as one would think.
I am currently on week two of having my right leg not like me.
It's a lot better though with the steroids.
I can actually walk for a while before I remember
that my leg does not like to do what I ask of it.
Three more days of pills.
I expect wonderful things.
Like walking without pain.
Oh, wouldn't that be great if this works.
I have an appointment set up for next week.
Seeing a Dr. and hoping for a simple solution.
An mri is being scheduled.
We will see what it shows.
Old bones I would expect.
So, today while I cough with this ever nasty cold,
I hope that this old body decides to behave.
I have things to do.
Things I want to do.
If only my leg would behave.

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
