Old Age Doesn`t Come Alone

A dear friend of mine passed those sage words along to me not long ago.

Boy was she right! I have noticed that there are things in my house that were not there fifteen years ago. They appeared slowly, one by one, and so I never noticed them until those words from my friend popped up the other day. I was making the bed and it hit me.

Old age surely does not come alone; it has brought these things with it so far—

Mister now sleeps with a pillow between his legs to ease an aching hip.

I sleep on a wedge to help my GRD.

I now wear these to help with an arm-length problem I was having.

Yep, purple pills to cut down that stomach acid.

A corn heating pad to be placed on Mister`s aching hip as needed.

Because regular coffee fires up my reflux and keeps Mister and me up past ten.

Daily just as a precaution for something I didn`t think I needed to precaution for when I was twenty.

For those who are now worried about blood pressure.

To keep middle-aged colons happy.

For those of us suffering from CRS.

I`m sure there are lots more but I can`t seem to remember what they are….

My MIL told me that years ago! I am not suffering the old-age companions well. They greatly inhibit my instincts to do what I want, when I want, where I want, and how much I want. Son of a nutcracker!!

Honeyman and I are right there with you and Mister with our own little things. I guess its either laugh or cry and I guess laughing is better ROFL

Laughing is much better than crying. =)
