What A Wild Ride

Most days this is me!
Mom was in rare form yesterday. She came out on her own around 10:00 yesterday for breakfast. I was outside having a smoke and Amy, the cat, was standing at the door wanting outside. Once I noticed Mom walking toward the screen door I had a pretty good idea what was in store for me. Little did I know that it would last all day!

There is a sign on the door that says "don't let the cats outside," and this has always gone against Mom's philosophy. 

After a ten minute argument about does the cat have food, water and a box. I finally won and got Mom to the table. But, it didn't end there. When she was done with breakfast it started again. When she came out for lunch it was round three. By this time I was ready to throw both her and the cat out the door. lol

Letting the cat out is fine, but the first thing she does is hop on the roof via the hot-tub then straight to Mom's window. When Mom sees the cat outside she tears the screen out so the cat can come inside. It seems like a real no-win-scenario but Amy sleeps with Mom during the day and does provide her with some companionship. 

Other than that things went well yesterday. I got Mom to eat 2 1/2 meals in, but in the process she was up a bit late. For some reason if she's up late, she's up early the next morning. Sure enough that held true today as she was up at 8:00. She looks good today. Her eyes are bright, she didn't argue about the cat and she ate a good breakfast.

Well, so long for now. Have a great day!
