Maggie’s got the funks. For the past few days all she has done is sleep and eat. Even the usual food treats I give her don’t seem to excite her. It has been so cold here and we haven’t been going on our usual daily walk. I think this is what is getting to Maggie. She will sit at the base of the piano and look longingly at her leash. Maggie’s walking drought is about to change though. It is forecast to get up to 45 today, and will be in the 50’s by Wednesday. It will seem like a heat wave and I hope the continuance of our walks will lift Maggie’s spirits. I hate to see her so sulking all the time.
Mom just stopped by after one of her myriad of appointments. As dad will often say, she’s the appointed one. She brought me diet Sprites, razor blades, and toilet paper. I don’t ask for these things, but mom has this intuitive sense that I am about to run out and she was right. I had one razor blade and one roll of toilet paper left. What would I do without mom with me having no money?
I don’t have much planned today. I have a glut of email to respond to. The blog has been very busy this weekend. I am itching to start book four of the Twilight saga and also hope to get a chance to run by the library for more books. This reading thing is so novel for me. I feel like I’ve discovered a brand new world! I also plan on going to a Narcotics Anonymous meeting tonight. I find they are less stodgy and more welcoming than the local AA meeting hall and all their old timers.
Well, let me get some lunch started. I have incredible cravings for grilled cheddar cheese sandwiches, dill pickle spears, and french fries. Let’s get to cooking!
