lol...Yep...I am kinda laughing at you...a few days ago I turned 75...Seriously, I never expected or wanted to live this long....I didn't take care of myself in any way....I had to leave my new job due to my back.
(I don't know why I thought I could do a 40 hour a week job)
Today at Walmart MARKETPLACE I saw that the paper isle was fully stocked with paper towels and toilet paper of all brands.
The meat was fully stocked and I bought pork and beef to make chili and a lot of fruit.
I then managed to re apply fiberglass resin to both of the pools in my primary Redfoot pen.
But after I took a shower, I was DONE.
I fell asleep at 4.
Its 9 now.
My life is getting rediculous.
I generally get up between 3 and 4 am....I read the paper and drink coffee for a couple of hours...then I feed and care for every animal I have, and start whatever job I'm gonna do that day...I own a 3 bdrm 2 bath house with big gardens front and back and side yards to care for...I live alone without help...it took me almost 3 weeks to remove whatever blackberries I did...any thing that needs to be done...I have to do it...generally about noon I start to fade...back is killing me and legs don't want to hold me up...I force myself to do some housework...and fade out...my right hand and arm is partially paralyzed and in pain causing anything I attempt to be harder...there is always something to be done and at times I just can't do it...it used to really bother me...so much stuff needs done...but then I realized I can only do what I can do...and if I can't do it today...it will still be there tomorrow...
I guess what I'm trying in my weird way to say is...I understand and I sympathize with you, as your role as a man puts different stresses on you that isn't on me as woman...and I think you are a bunch younger than me...I used to be very bothered by being medically retired from my job at 50...but I came to realize...I don't HAVE to do anything...I have a guaranteed income...a car paid for...a nice paid for house...I do what I want whenever I want...and ya can't beat that with a stick...you now can do what you want and just play with tortoises all damn day if you want...I am sorry you have to go thru these changes my friend...
