@baldilocks I'm going to be 39 in September and I can't believe how my body hates me sometimes. 😂
I've been taking glucosamine and it does wonders for the joints!
I used to get so worked up when I'd see my gran, at 80, on the roof of her porch (she had to climb out a window to get there) sweeping leaves or snow off.
My mom, at 80, on a ladder clearing pine needles from the eaves...
I now realize why they did it and see them in myself....
Stubborn old women! Argh. I've a way to go to 80 and hope I can break the mold before then. 😜
Speaking of stubborn old women reminds me of my 79y/o mom. I asked her several X’s please don’t get up, when seated & holding my 3 month old son. There’s been a few X’s she fell back in the chair clinging to the baby for dear life. When she’s able to make it up his head is usually pointing towards the ground by the time she’s up. Scares the hell out of me. I ask nicely & she doesn’t listen. It takes getting angry in my family to be heard
When my niece was 18 months old, she ran full speed and took a dive headfirst off the front porch, aiming for the sidewalk five steps below.
I was sitting cross legged on the sidewalk, and I managed to unspring myself, sprawl on my belly, and catch her with one hand before she hit.
It was only the millionth time I wondered how the hell people have the courage to be parents.
@JM for 2 years, when I was in an A-frame cast and then an A-frame brace, depending on the car, I sometimes had to sit in the back of a station wagon, facing the cars behind us. I laugh now 'cuz I was like the family dog with a completely different perspective of the car ride than everyone else. 😆 @Kathleen @deighs @umad80 @baldilocks @carolinacally
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
