What a difference a day makes.....
It all started out fine. A nice normal day. I had a meeting at work first thing in the morning. For some unexplainable reason I left my cell phone on my desk when I went down the hall. I always have my phone with me. I still don't know why I didn't take it to my meeting. When we finished and I got back to my desk, I saw my house number as a missed call and a voicemail. Instead of wasting time checking the message I just dialed home.
In an eerily calm voice, Auntie asks if I can run home for a minute. ?? Yes, I reply - but why? Her eerily calm voice threw me a bit because you may have picked up from some of my posts, she is a tad bit high strung! She says "Your mother has fallen and I can't lift her up" I didn't even ask any questions, just hung up and raced home. She was on the floor between the bed and the closet. But before you think she just fell out of bed - She was backwards! We still can't figure it out. I checked her from head to toe - twice. Not a mark or bruise on her and not one tender spot. We have no idea when it happened, as Auntie found her that way this morning. And she wasn't trying to get to the bathroom as there were no "accidents". It is a complete mystery but she seems fine.
Mystery #2 - The dog seems to be crazy too. I may need the services of a dog psychic. Princess Millie spends every meal time, on her special mat beside me at the table. (Yes she gets table treats - don't judge) However, since yesterday she is now "scared" of her mat. She will not go there no matter what I put on the mat. Not-even-cheese.......so you know its serious. She now goes and stands beside the stove and barks and whines. I have picked her up and put her on the mat and she runs back to the stove. I have switched the mat for a different one. Nope - runs back to the stove.
What in the beejeebers is that about?? Seriously, I cannot take another bit of crazy in this house. I took the afternoon off work. I met two friends for coffee. I added some "special" to the coffee. (Again, don't judge) There was a flask involved - not mine. Yes, I have those kinds of friends. (Thank God! Lol)
I think I pulled a muscle in my back while lifting Mom. The "special" coffee tasted good. I think this may be in my future later tonight........I heard Grey Goose can act like a muscle relaxant. Don't judge. Its been a mysterious day
