I want to have some positive thinking and hear the fun part of the later years. Every part of life has its fun and challenges, and when we really think about what the younger ones are trying to manage, aren't we all glad that we are finished with that part.
Here goes my list. I don't know where my alarm clock is and I may not remember how to set it. I have my own life which is all about me, wash, cook and clean for one. I always get control of the TV remote and watch only what I want. I do all this and have to seriously consider what my amusements need to be. This may sound selfish but remember this is the positive side of senior living.
I seem to be immune from a lot of sniffles. Really, seniors have had most of the varieties of the common cold and are immune. We can take two aspirins, drink plenty of fluids, and get plenty of rest, if we do get some bug. We don't have to live in fear of getting an illness, most of our life is already used and we know we are not getting out alive. Ouch, I think that last one is positive. Oh well, They are legalizing marijuana to take care of a lot of issues or just to take us back to our youth. LOL.
I think if we got this far we have earned a halo or have a few stars, or badges of merit and really don't care if they are dusty, dim, or lost. We have decided that we can ride in the back seat and enjoy the view. We just don't have to be "IN CHARGE".
What am i missing? There must be more and you must have your own. I do want to want a long list but have run dry and I see red words below saying "this blog is too short and needs 300 words". LOL. Well I tried.
