funny how things change overnight. maude who is 14 years old and can run and run and run and run. who can scale the fences here with a bit of effort and a willing heart. who leaps up upon my bed each night and whenever i go out to lay across my pillows.
last night, she could not jump up onto the bed. she tried and tried, but she couldn't do it. i got up to help her but that just pissed her off so she slept on the floor beside me on a soft bed. is that how old age creeps up on you? boom, one day you can't do what you did the day before? where is the creeping part of that?
don't worry maudie, i will find some small, plastic pee proof steps so you can still get up and i can still move in that tiny room and the pee'rs in our life won't make them smell cuz we can bleach them!
life changes, and we change with it and one way or another, maude can still have her freaking bed!
