All I have to say on this Monday morning, is that I need to DO SOMETHING today! Ya, this Ataxia is progressive and a nuisance and some days I just don’t feel like doing anything, but there always is SOMETHING I can do. Maybe some days my speech just isn’t there, but I CAN still e-mail or text a friend; maybe it’s too cold or slippery to venture out, then I could invite someone over; maybe I just don’t feel like going anywhere or doing much today, so I play a word game or read a book for a while. (Or maybe I sit and write something for this blog). I don’t know about you, but I need to feel like I’m accomplishing something. I love the notion of “To-Do lists” because I love the feeling of checking things off.
Having Denim has provided that “do something every day” requirement to my to-do list. If I just sat around and did nothing all day, she would get restless. She forces me to get in my exercise. Whether it’s talking her for a walk or just going up and down the stairs to do laundry, she keeps me moving. So I really do need to get going because even though she’s been sleeping while I type this, she’s going to be anticipating our next adventure very soon. Today is food shopping and then volunteering at the farm.
