The Morning Workout...!
You know, sometimes when I get up in the mornings...it's like running an obstacle course!
First of all, if the roomies stayed in at night, I feel like there is a crowd in my bed. As long as they are still I really don't mind, but if they toss and turn, then I almost feel as though I don't have room to even turn back the covers! Kinda like this!
Even if they haven't slept on the bed, they have a tendency to be in the way on the floor. It's like trying to roller skate in a buffalo herd, ya know? I mean, I know there's only two of them...but like kids, sometimes it seems like a lot more! Some of you know what I mean, I'm sure!
Now, after I fight my way out from under the covers, after I run the gauntlet of the kitties on the floor...usually managing to trip and stumble across the room to the coffee pot without hurting myself or the cats, I usually have a few not so nice things to mumble to myself about the wisdom of having cats as pets!
But by the time I reach for my coffee cup, I start to see things in a different light. I realize that the roomies are just doing what comes natural! They really do like me and want me to be happy early in the morning, and if they could, they would help me get my first cup of the day!
Finally, after getting my first cup and getting morning hugs from the roomies, I'm finally ready to face the day! It just goes to show that a good cup of coffee, a heartfelt hug from a pet, and a smile caused by the look of love in their eyes can brighten your day considerably!
I guess that sometimes even a pet, or a couple of pets, can be a reminder that we need to take time to stop and smell the roses every day!
Now, my friend, let's get some coffee and sit outside for a bit. Maybe the roomies will stop in and give you a hug as well!
