chris's garden

I love to garden, and am out side on most days when I am not working, in it. I HATE winter!!! LOL

I also need to get my self back on track. some days I'm pretty good other days not so. I have some physical issues, but I am not in pain (thank God) so I am careful of what I can do, mostly low impact things are fine. So there are some things I will not do that cause undo stress on my body. It does not limit me for most part.

I am divorced, I have 4 grown sons. No grands ...

I am divorced, I have 4 grown sons. No grands yet. I look after my 80 year old mother. She is still very mobile and on her own. I work full time and part time, and am involved in various thing that keep me busy.

I am forever repairing or replacing things in my 85 year old house! I love to work with my power tools and do repairs around my house. All the doors and windows have been replaced, both baths have been replaced and are fairly new. replaced all flooring. Still needs siding, and walkway replaced.

So now I need to redo this body! So that it will serve me well, for many more years. I have been at it for awhile. I am determined, sometimes just not motivated! I need to do this, for me, because I AM worth it.

Thanks for the goodie. I have been limping around for well over a year and finally took the time to have it evaluated. I have degenerative hip disease, which translates to arthritis. I am pretty much bone on bone. I need to get through budget preparation at work and then will be able to take the time to get the new hip and recover as stress free as possible. I am hoping to be good to go for travel again in the Fall. I will keep good thoughts that the newest freezing temps are not settling right over you!

So glad to see you are still out on this site. After being gone a year I expected it would be hard to find my friends. I see you still are hating the cold. Are you planning to relocate when you retire?

Thanks for the Spark goodie and for thinking of me! The car is holding together but feel like it is on its last legs. Keeping fingers crossed till I can get past a few things and face replacing it.

Thanks again! emoticon
