Sometimes the fates are not on your side. I have animals to care for and feed before I can start my day. I have ten dogs, two horses. Yes, you read that correctly. I was in animal rescue for over 20 years, my animals are the side effect of that. The ones I couldn't find suitable homes for, stayed with me. Most of my dogs are above the age of 10 now. Most are dachshunds, as was my Willy, and prone to back problems.
This morning my 12 year old, Jack, woke up stiff. He can walk, thank God, but it hurts. He can't tell me what the problem is, so I must guess.
Luckily, I keep anti-inflammatories in the house for such emergencies.
He is resting comfortably at my feet as I type.
It is 10:00 am and I have written 5 new pages for Haven, about 1500 words. That's a good start, half a chapter.
Some days, start off bumpy.
