Blood! My kingdom for a pint of blood!
After my infusion schedule got changed yesterday, I realized that many a day goes by that I am NOT grateful to be here another day. I would like to say here and now I am going to stop that, but I know better. In the interest of honesty and not becoming a chronic liar, today… exhausted, sick, having progressive problems of late, I am grateful… today. Yesterday not so much… but that was then, this is now.
Today truly is a day for celebration as it is my first Saturday off in a very long time… you know as a scheduled thing. I’m sure I’ve been out on a Saturday or two in the past six years, but my schedule now accommodates Saturdays off. I just have to accommodate one small K9 alarm clock to the new schedule, as 5:30am is surely not necessary on a day for which one has little to be on time.
Speaking of the K9. Did you know I have a dog?
Enigma that I am (ahem), I am certain you could have missed it. But SURPRISE! I do have a doggy. His name among other things is Douglas. I am forever grateful for him and his relative health at the ripe age of 16. He is quite appropriately demented but otherwise a healthy guy. He has some trouble seeing in the sunshine. He is totally blind when in bright lights. Luckily and THANKFULLY we live in a time of utter indulgence in which a doting animal lover may purchase something to assist the likes of poor Douglas. Stay tuned.
I am also grateful for distraction during this physically trying time. Blackout poetry has been keeping me occupied. as have making cookies that I would show you but my ridiculous computer still hasn’t made the TToT list of gratitude…
Speaking of which I am gonna go to the computer place and see if they can help me out… but let me say I am grateful that Daisy Dillon is okay as our rooster met up with a fox this week. They hung out together a lot…
okay…. so that’s not ten, but it is enough per the virgins who recognize I am not in best dance condition and are ok if I leave you with my favorite meme in the abscence of a dance number to make up for using rule 8.9 subsection p that says ” cuz I said so.” Hey, have a great weekend. Talk soon.
