There is a saying: "You are only as old as you feel!"
-and--to-day, I feel old!
You see, son#3, the Policeman, was just trying to make life easier for us--
"Why don't we grocery shop after supper on a Friday night?" he said.
We tried it last evening.
----after we had vacuumed the whole house, walked Germans (as in dogs--big dogs!)- Himself put up 2 artificial Xmas trees outside, and I covered shrubs which could get damaged with snow , (if we ever get snow!)- falling from the roof, I made soup--got dinner ready---then------we hit the grocery.
The shelves were being restocked----
I couldn't get too much on my list-----
"Come back to-morrow", the Stock boys told us----
The whole point of going last evening was so I would NOT have to go back to-morrow--which is to-day!
We staggered home----chewing at each other.
"This was a bad idea", himself informed me-
"Old people can't do so much in one day"--I muttered to himself, who never heard me-
And so----I feel very old to-day!
And to make matters worse, at the pool last week, while watching 4 Grandchildren swim lengths of our local pool, a grey haired Lady who looked like another Grandmother, got up from her chair, and offered her seat on the bench, to "ME"---
Lord love a Duck!
I really do feel "over the hill" to-day!
