Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 14th day of November, 2015.

The sky looks frosty if that is possible and the roofs are all covered in frost … like a painting.

That is my view from the office window.

We were up early this morning much like other mornings.

As has been “routine” for the past mornings I quickly don my winter boots as I hit the main floor.

Grabbed Alvin’s food dish as it’s temporary home is in the living room.

I turned on all of the lights and followed Alvin into the kitchen where I gingerly turned the handle on the bathroom door.

Quickly turned on the light and spoke loudly before opening his food container and filling up a cup for his dish.

Returning to the living room he ate breakfast while I “cowered” on the upstairs steps.

How sad am I?

Once done we both went outside.

Alvin and my winter boots are my saviours these days.

I feel so helpless and stopped from doing the things that I need to do.

I have a long list of items that need my attention.

The craft show is fast approaching and I need to gather some tea orders.

I have to get past this situation.

It has been crippling.

The days that have been wasted because of this small little thing.

Well today is a new day.

I will tell you that after three days of this I am downright exhausted.

Made a decision to have my neighbour remove the sticky pads as I cannot bear it to be caught and have Alvin listen to it.

I do not think they pass right away and that is down right cruel.

Even thought this creature has turned my life upside down I just think I have to do the more humane thing ….

So this morning another friend is coming over to set a couple of the old fashioned “snap” ones.

I feel better about that.

Right now there is nothing in the pantry and I should be baking some pumpkin muffins so I shall have a shower and be brave.

Gather my baking items from the pantry and get on with it.

Boots and Alvin and all.

I need to get going on things.

So these are my thoughts for the day.

I am trying to be brave …. I am trying.

Somedays it would be nice to have a room-mate in addition to Alvin.

Although he has been the best …. does not leave my side…. I think that he knows.

Tomorrow is my nephew’s birthday …. the one that was in the accident last fall and in a coma for several months.

He is doing a world better;  his brother is taking him home for a day or two and renting a hall to have a party for him.

Happy Birthday ….. he will love seeing all of his friends, neighbours and family.

My daughter and I are going to go next weekend and visit him at Ponoka unless he already has plans.

We have to call.

Tick tock …. I have to get this show on the road.

Writing is not going to get things done.

I appreciate your support ….

Special Hello to: to all those people who live every day with phobias …. I know.

Always, Carol and Alvin
