This morning, I had to complete a very disgusting chore! How to put it delicately……well, Denim is a Great Dane and um…what goes in must come out. Well, at least Denim took to a “designated area” pretty quickly. Well, that “designated area” needs to be cleaned up sometimes and this morning was one of those times. Well, it was definitely overdue! And all I could think was how it really was a lousy job! “This just stinks!. How in the world can I possibly put a positive spin on this one?” Well, it gave me a topic to write about, for one. Another positive aspect is the fact that I was getting in some real good balance practice as I maneuvered through that mine field.
It also taught me a lesson that is very applicable to dealing with my Ataxia. I let this go way too long so now it was extremely “painful”. So like this Ataxia, if I don’t get going, the more “painful” it’ll be when I finally need to. I can’t let this Ataxia overwhelm me. I have to stay on top of it! Unfortunately, I can’t just throw away my Ataxia like I could with what I picked up this morning, but I can “put it in its place”.
And when I was finished this morning, Denim came over and licked me on the face as if to say “thank-you”. That certainly helped!
Ok, the connection is a little fuzzy. I tried!
