I don’t know if I was stuffy when I woke up. I don’t think so because I wondered why I was getting stuffy just after breakfast. It’s been downhill from there. I’m chilly and tired and blah. Like when Lion was sick, I wonder how it happened. The last time I was out was a week ago. I know I’ll be fine after lunch and a little rest. I have to be. There are too many things to do around here for me to be too sick.
I’m not sure about Lion, but I doubt I’ll have any energy to play with him tonight. The other night, his back hurt. Last night, his shoulder hurt. He says it’s the beginning of the end for him. It’s all downhill from here. I feel that way right now too. It’s temporary. We’ll both be back in fighting form in a day or two. In the meantime, we can snuggle and be together.
This morning Lion said he’s been very happy to have me around all the time. Me too. It’s not just because I don’t want to schlepp to work. I still have trouble getting myself motivated to get to my desk in the morning. I really like having Lion in the next room or, better yet, right next to me. We’re sappy, but we’re both grateful we get along so well. Yeah, we annoy each other from time to time, but I’m pretty sure I could count on one hand the number of fights we’ve had over the years. Only three spring to mind. I’m sure there have been others. I don’t mean minor disagreements. I mean not talking to each other fights. I get quiet when he annoys me sometimes, but he was really pissed at me those three times.
We got past that and it’s been smooth sailing ever since. Ok, maybe not so smooth at times but only because of surgeries and outside forces throwing a monkey wrench into things. Life would be boring without some turmoil, but I’d take some smooth sailing right about now, for all of us.
Sometimes just cuddling up, you realize what happiness it is. And at this moment, nothing more is needed.
