Just maintaining, lol

Well, let's see; earlier this month I sang the blues about being an old person, lot of nerve huh?? So many young people never have the opportunity. I don't know why I was complaining, just having one of those pity parties. Oh btw, my errant grandson added me back to his FB buddies, lol. What's new?? Well, I have lost 30 lbs. over the past 4 months. Actually, it began when we had some bad air move into our area from that Arizona fire and it made me extremely short of breath; I thought there was something awful wrong with me, I mean I just couldn't breathe. I went to see the doc and he had me get a chest xray and determined that it was just the bad air. Our air is normally nice and clear and clean So, he just told me to go home, keep my 02 on and take it easy! Anyway, somewhere along about that time, I really lost my appetite. I needed to lose the weight and I want to lose about 20 lbs more if possible. I just don't do any exercise, so losing weight is difficult. I have been hungry all day, so I guess that is why it is on my mind, lol I know I haven't lost any lbs today!

Otherwise, we are fine. Well, as fine as old folks can be. Today was really hot, the sun was relentless and not a cloud to be found. We have been fortunate to have early evening thunderstorms which cool things down a lot; not the case today. The country is having strange weather. Earthquakes in Virginia/dc area, Tornado warnings in Wisconsin, Hurricane warnings all up the coast to Maryland. Perhaps this Fall will bring some stability to our weather. I have a friend who is vacationing in Germany and says that they are having lovely weather.

Getting about my bedtime, hope everyone is well.

Being old :(

It seems like these days nobody has any use for us old folks. I mean, we watched a comedy show where at least half of the jokes were at the expense of old folks. We sure make a good target. Before long the "babyboomers" will be aging, and I don't know how they are going to cope. Do you realize that even families don't like the old people in their families. We are kind of expendible and as a matter of fact, I just had a grandson "unfriend" me on Facebook! Who ever heard of such thing? I guess since he doesn't live around us, he feels like, out of sight, out of mind; he is not a teen, he is 27 years old. Well, on the other hand we had a granddaughter and her hubby come from California to visit and they were wonderful. I guess I need to think about the good things and forget the bad. Aging is not fun and it seems not a week goes by that we are coping with something new. All you old people out there know what I am talking about; lots of little things.

Here in our neck of the woods, school begins this month. Back to school sales, etc., I was always use to school starting in September, and August seems awfully early, but then again, the kids get out earlier in the Spring. Can you believe that next month is Fall? Wow, time sure flies!

Guess I am through with bitching and whining, lol. Trying to keep positive thoughts going here.
