After last weeks elections, I was in somewhat of a funk. But the end of the week saw some changes that have brightened my outlook significantly. And today has been an exceptional day if you must know the truth.
The hubby and I worked our asses off to finally and (except for some small things….like my CAT) completely got moved. I go over to feed him everyday, but I’m waiting to bring him when I have the house more put together so I can keep him in a few days so he won’t run away. I knew the light of the tunnel came when we had cleared enough of the house to get my tanning bed broken down and brought over here. It’s such a pain in the ass, but I’ve had it for so long that I can’t part with it. Especially with its medicinal side effects that I’ve talked about before. And the Harley now has made it over to the new place too. Terry was really glad about that.
So, unfortunately, last night I had to put the ol hubs back on the train to head to NC where he will start back to work. I was so tired that I barely had enough energy for a glass of wine and the Walking Dead. Somehow I managed though…LOL
I had an appointment with a woman this morning and purchased 28 baby chicks. I only went for 10 but……..well, you know how that goes. Go to the grocery store and ONLY get what was on your list? Yeah, me neither. They are safely in the bathtub with a light on them for warmth. Yes, it still gets up over 80 during the day which means I run my a/c. I’m not roasting for any chickens (although someday some of them might roast for me !)
I came home and worked at putting away all the crap that I’ve accumulated over the years. I promise that when I get the house finally put together I will put up before and after pics. I don’t think you will believe the difference, but I know you’ll appreciate the hard work I put in. But here is a hint. This is my view from my desk looking at the back of the double doors of my bedroom. I told you I was going to paint it pink and I did.
Later today, I went to see a girl who has a horse that she needs to re-home. He’s a sweet boy, and my Lucah SO needs a friend. She’s so convinced that I am going to give him a good home (unless she changes her mind tomorrow which I don’t think will happen) that she’s also going to get me a baby goat when they are weaned. Can you say REAL farm now? Only other thing I want to get are a couple of rabbits. Their poop is awesome for the garden. And I plan on putting out a HUGE garden in the spring.
Well, all that to say this about the age that I am right now. I have a few age related aches and pains from time to time like anyone that’s 55. But overall my health is excellent and I love that. But the thing that I love the most about being this age is that I fit in EVERYWHERE. The old people like me and actually listen to what I have to say now. You know how they always regard someone younger as not knowing their ass from a hole in the ground? Yeah, well it’s not like that anymore. And the people who are my age never guess me as being that old, and I like that ALOT too. And here’s the thing…..I can say ANYTHING I want. And no one is gonna say anything about it. I’m a mature woman. I’m grandma material (don’t get any ideas son of mine), and I almost qualify for senior status. I can laugh with people of any age. It’s hard to explain, and I’m sure that it won’t stay this way, but right now, I’m really happy with life. My wrinkles and all.
