Yesterday was my parents 64th wedding anniversary. That's a long time! What is the secret to their sucess? Could it be that Mom loves to talk and Dad can't hear, lol.
Isn't life ironic? Mom has been overweight her whole life and now at age 88, she has found that food is no longer important to her and she has no taste for it. She has been losing weight slowly and now all of a sudden she has been told for the first time that she has to eat more. Her MD said that perhaps her teeth are bothering her and that it is affecting her eating. I say, she is 88 and running down, maybe life is just happening.
My Dad wants to snack constantly on nuts and hard candy. He's 90 and taking care of Mom. MD says to take away his snacks and he will eat more healthy foods. He always ate whatever Mom served but now that she doesn't cook hardly at all, they eat mostly sandwiches and whatever us kids bring them already cooked. It works for them as they are fussy eaters to begin with.
I think that they reached this ripe old age all by themselves and that they should be left alone to do as they please. Why is it that people always try to rule others? What works for one person may not work for someone else so to each their own and just live and let live. Ha! Enough adages for one post, lol!
