OUT OF THE MOUTH OF BABES

I was walking our dog, Doc. He is a big white Sammy. He has long beautiful hair that sways when he walks.

I reached a street where a little girl (about 6 or 7) ran out and asked if she could pet my dog.

Doc is a sweetheart with children and so I said; yes.

She petted him while she talked a blue streak.

She said, You know, I saw some other OLD people yesterday and they were walking a snow dog!!!!!!!

It was my husband and me!

And ...sigh...I thought that I looked so young and cute with my hair in a ponytail and wearing my short golf skirt!!

IT"S ME AGAIN

I thought that I would write big so readers wouldn't have to hunt for their glasses to read my entry!

The counter still bothers me!         I hear that obsessing is a part of old age!

I awoke this am with my lower back hurting. The mattress is a year old and was very expensive so it isn't that.

 My husband was up and down all night with a cold. He can blow his nose louder than a train whistle. I also was up and down because he was up and down.

So, I am tired this morning and my back hurts!

Just more of the pains of getting older. No sleep and back hurts.....

Hey...At least.....I'm still breathing!

THAT DARN COUNTER

It is down to 7 as I write.  What is going on with this counter????

I know no one wants to talk about or hear about approaching old age but  I never guessed that the counter was insulted!

THE COUNTER

Not sure why it bothers me so much but the counter on this journal keeps going back to 0.

It was up to 226 one day and back to 30 something today.

oh Well!

I just will never know how many people are growing old with me!

  Good night.

MY DIET

I am at a stand still on my weight loss. I need to walk but am having

trouble with motivation.

I need to get to the gym but having the motivation thing again.I'm afraid that I will end up like this!

Why do I take such good care of everyone else and forget about me??
