Here I am again. 8:35 am. Still alive this morning! Made it through another night. Just how old will I get to be? If were an old car I’d say I have a good many years left yet. Everything that I use is working very well. Some parts have been in mothballs for a while but I might just air them out yet before the final day.
As I said it is 8:35 AM. I ‘ve been on board now for about two hours. Had time to check my emails, make pancakes for my grand-daughter and me, and make eggs when the pancakes did not get her 2 1/2 year old approval. And my bed is made. That’s it this morning , no cakes in the oven , no casseroles, just a day free to make plans.
I think , since I am retired, have no family relying on me, and have ALL the FREEDOM that I longed for my entire working life that I will kidnap my grand-daughter, jump in my car,and spend the day in the country at my home “now cottage”. Her mother, poor thing , is young. What a burden that is! I’ve nearly forgotten how difficult life is when you have to handle work, raising children, raising a husband and looking after yourself. Kick me if I ever complain about getting old again. And this old derriere will be able to handle even that.
So there we go; another plus for aging. Freedom to act on whims.
Ok car, here I come. And I am taking my granddaughter too. We can build a snowman, eat lunch, play with legos and watch Winnie the Pooh. Yep! A perfect day coming up.
