You remember Also? Right before Next???
Well, her name is Smokey now, and she is settled in to her new digs.
A couple of months ago, I took some pictures of my friend's new house under construction.
Well, today L and I were invited to lunch.
And you can just tell, here is another abused kitty.
She has put on weight, and was not the least bit concerned that there was company.
In fact, she slept right through lunch.
But let me take you on a little tour.
I love her new house.
I love the skylights, the high ceilings, and the soft yellow color everywhere.
It is small, but perfect for her, and it sits on her 10 acres of wildflowers.
And it is quiet. Sometimes I crave that. Pure silence.
And someone made her an awesome rug for her bathroom. Hmm....who could it be???
This is such a restful space. I know she is going to love living here.
I am so happy for my friend, finally in her own place, and for Smokey, too, who once was a starving stray, and now has a home of her own.
I won't say much today about the injection, other than it was more awful than I expected. It was also diagnostic, like the next three scheduled injections. After the trigger points are identified, then I will get steroid injections, and then, maybe relief.
Until then, I will just put one foot in front of the other, cry sometimes, lean on the people who care about me, and act 'as if' everything is A.O.K.
She didn't even wake up to say goodbye.
