As My Joints Turn

My Autoimmune Soap Opera

There is a HUGE snow storm coming tonight and tomorrow. Large amounts of wet, heavy snow is expected. The meteorologists are all over the place with totals but my joints are predicting anywhere from 1-99 inches!  Hahaha.  I had to run to the store to get my “milk and bread”. Then had to run other errands so that all the creatures in my home have food, etc., during this storm. With two more stops to go, I started to feel the ankle screaming. Heck, even my toes were hurting (that’s a new achy place on my body). I can post a scary pic of my ankle, but I’ve already done that before.  So I decided to write a poem.  I’m going stir crazy just thinking about being snowed in.  I hope it makes you laugh.

 

‘Twas the night before the snowstorm and all through my home,

Not a body part wasn’t aching. Not a joint, nor a bone.

My legs are propped up on the ottoman with care,

In hopes that relief would soon be there.

The dog was curled up all snug in her bed,

While visions of snowy walks dance in her head.

With me in my jammies, and the cats in my lap,

We all settled in for a long winter’s nap.

But the dropping temps began to settle in my bones,

Each time I stood up was with creaks and with moans.

I looked out the window and what did I see,

Gleaming white snow looking right back at me.

As I watch the inches pile up all through the storm,

I’m hoping my electricity stays on so I’m warm.

How beautiful and peaceful it looks in the night,

Although by tomorrow it will require all of my might.

To clear it away so my car I can drive,

Walking carefully on ice without a swan dive.

Once the snow is cleared and I’m back on the couch,

I’ll prop up my legs and try to ignore the ouch.

Snowstorms and spoonies are not a great team,

Thank goodness for wine and pain relief cream.

So to those in the Northeast I wish you the best

Spring is coming and then we can rest……hahaha  Just kidding….then the rainy season and humidity starts.

 

Be well my friends!

Georgia is the only one who loves the snow in this family.

  1. Georgia looks like she is ready to have a blast in the snow. My little cocker spaniel used to love ti as well, I mean until she got the least bit wet then she woudl tuck her nub and run back in. I hate the idea of snow, rain and cold, but I do love spring. I am ready for my bicycle.
