Lordy Lordy I dont want to be forty!

My blogging is sadly lacking and I think I need some exciting things to blog about it. Perhaps if I had grandchildren to share cute little stories about { Trav? Ashlyn? } or maybe a fun upcoming wedding to look forward to { Chad?? }   But life is just status quo and oh so boring. But I can share some some little tidbits that have me  seriously thinking about an upcoming move....


To a assisted living home for me and the big  guy! 

Sure you may be saying "Oh Karen its not that bad"
Oh but it is...

My knee has healed to almost 100 %. But because I walked so crooked for 4 months my right foot has horrible plantar fasciitis. So I am still limping ,but now on the other side. Which if I was being followed for insurance fraud I would certainly be in jail. Some mornings I get out of bed and feel like a crippled person for the first few steps. I did buy some really good shoes from Nordstrom and they seem to help. If they don't do the trick its off to the orthotics store with the other seniors. Sass shoes here I come!
Then all of a sudden I need  readers!   Yep, went to text and could not see the print? So I bought a cute pair at Wal Mart thinking I would use them a 'little' to help out. BUT....at work I need to see the tags. So it was off and on with the readers all day long! Nothing screams "old" like a lady with a limp and reading  glasses! And no, they didn't dangle from a chain around my neck! But it sure would have been easier than  slipping them into my cleavage because more than once they slipped from there down into my shirt because even the cleavage aint what it used to be. So that found me fishing around by my waist to retrieve the glasses and I could swear my bra was down there too? So I did what most would do under these dire circumstances. I got "mono vision"  contact lenses. One for close, one for distance. Its been three days and I cant see either well. I am hoping & praying that my eyes get used to it but so far...not so much. Last night I was 10 inches from the TV to see some curtains on House Hunters that I liked,only to find out they were not curtains at all. Pray for me sisters! Maybe I am overly sensitive because of the menopause {which is a whole other story} but this growing old is  kickin my drooping butt today.

As someone who drops popcorn down my cleavage when I go to the movies, and if I even attempted to fetch it, I would be checking my waist band, I totally sympathize. I have one far sighted eye and one near sighted eye which is great until you go to the DMV and almost fail because they check your vision with one eye closed. Hello? I don't drive with one eye closed.

And, hon, it is fasciitis. Although that truly looks wrong as I type it. Where the heck is my medical spellchecker when I need it? Factitious does mean man made, so, hey, that works for me.

Such a cute post. I swear I am not far behind you. I am suddenly falling apart too and my memory is vanishing quickly! I'll reserve the room next to you at the old folks home.

My son is always telling the "your momma" jokes...well evidently, I'm so old that my ta-tas are stuck between my toes!! So I say, around the waist ain't too bad yet!
