This is Pearl, one of my mom’s kitties. I love how she’s just zonked out. I am thinking about some changes tonight. Changes that may or may not happen. (Work stuff, basically.) Change isn’t necessarily bad, and many times it’s good, but I think no matter what, I find certain types of change to be exhausting. Even if it’s a really positive change!
It makes me look at this picture of little Pearl and think “I wish I was a pampered cat, who didn’t have to worry about things like paying bills and checking the oil in your car and washing dishes and life change and a zillion other things.” Plus, how awesome would it be to get massaged on demand throughout the day?
Maybe I’m just overwhelmed because there’s been a lot of change lately, with work, my diet (my doctor has put the kibosh on me eating gluten*), and life in general. But I must say, all this change makes me appreciate my furbabies even more. I know one thing I can always count on is them swirling around me when I come home for the day. I’m glad some things never change.
*I’ve actually had two doctors tell me this, and only after a few years, some recurring health issues, and a couple false starts did I realize, yep, it’s something I have to do for the sake of my health. But I gotta say, a part of me is hoping this “gluten-free everything” trend will quickly fizzle out like the Atkin’s diet and the fat-free craze. I’m not gluten free because it’s trendy, I’m gluten free because gluten, though tasty, is hurting my body. Some people can’t have peanuts, some people can’t tolerate dairy, I can’t have gluten. It’s fine, but it’s also change. I’m tired of change! I want a vacation! And now I will cease my whining and go to bed. 🙂
