Age

Yes, 2 posts in one day!!! As I said my mother is in town so we have 3 generations together. I'll post a picture. The interesting thing is my husband turned 50 in June and I think he feels the need to prove he's only in his 30s. He has been doing major projects on the house lately leaving me exhausted. The man does not sleep!! We got a new front door put in--big double with storm door. He got bare wood and we needed to paint. These past 3 weekends he put in a hardwood floor in the living room and dining room. It's bamboo and gorgeous! He did an amazing job. He's finishing up the trim today--staining was done yesterday by me and I have to finish putting poly on it so he can put it on on Saturday. Then maybe we can get the furniture out of my garage and I can put my car back in there. He planted more flowers. Oh, our mailbox got blown up at 2:00 in the morning on July 4th. M80 most likely so he had to replace that too. He's replacing more parts in Brittany's (dd) car. I get tired just watching him. AND it's my birthday week. So I turn 51 and my body tells me I'm close to 100! My fibro and bone disease is really doing a number on me. Of course I can't just do nothing, gotta use my elbows so then they hurt more but what else can I do?? Reminds me of that George Carlin joke about age: (paraphrasing)

"You're 4 and a half, gonna be 16, become 21, you turn 30, pushing 40, reach 50 and make it to 60, you hit 70, then you hit wednesday, you get into your 80's and hit lunch, you turn 4:30 and make it to bedtime, then in your 90's you say I was just 92. If you make it over 100 you're like a little kid again- you go backwards - 'I'm a 100 and a half!'"

Have a great week!!!

don't forget about Under the Big Top crop the weekend of the 15th, 16th, and 17th!!! There will be animal acts, sight to amaze and delight you! Games and prizes!!!
