With a sister like that...

I sure am lucky to have a baby sister who makes up her mind to do something and then goes ahead and takes care of it. I will never have to worry that I will have to face anything on my own or have to carry any burden that is too heavy for me singlehandedly to bear. She just observes the situation quickly and steps in and takes control of things. I hardly have to worry about anything after that. She is worth her weight in gold and how many people are there these days like that? 

I do have to make sure that the burden does not become too heavy for her so, if at all possible, I want to carry as much of it as I can myself. And always be loving and grateful to her because she deserves it and no, she is not at all a martyr. She has a heart of gold too and can do the job of two people. For some reason she was created that way. 

Yesterday evening I took Tyke for his regular walk, but it was a bit more difficult than I had anticipated and it took me a while to recover from the effort. It seems that my physical condition is going backwards and that does concern me. You would think that I was a very old and out of shape woman. I do want to keep going for this same walk and not reduce the distance because I will be darned if I am forced to. Besides that, Tyke needs to set the boundaries of his territory three times a day. Somehow I have to stay in good enough shape to be able to walk that far. Come hell or high water. 

I will accept any reality that I am faced with, but I am also stubborn and will fight for the cause and go the extra mile. My god, I sound just like a politician. I sure as heck don't want to. I will set a goal for myself every day and somehow achieve it even if it is not a real big one. I will let them vary in size depending on how good a day I am having. And now I am out of breath.

She sounds like a wonderful sister.

I do hope you work back up to your usual condition. At this age we tend to lose muscle mass that is difficult to regain.

Have a wonderful day.
