Once again it's time to do something scary. Boy oh boy THAT is something I REALLY DON'T LIKE TO DO but I know it's good for me and, THIS time it's going to be good for my husband ... I hope. I have noticed over the past years that his activity level has diminished. When I retired from my job two years ago, he retired from yard work, taking out the garbage on pick-up day, etc. NOW he has developed a habit of not getting out of bed for up to two days in a row ... no sickness ... he just wants to watch television or read. Last week he stayed in three days in a row. I've written numerous epistles to confront him with my worries but haven't had the guts to show them to him. I'm really worried about his health. I know that muscles that aren't used regularly DO slide into "never land". I don't want him to let everything in his body waste away. He's only 78 and has always been active outdoors until the past few years. He used to be a young 78, but I see aging signs that could be simply his lack of activity. So, today is THE DAY for our little talk. It could be a win-win for both of us. I get to keep my husband for another 20 years or more, and he gets a better Sparked loving wife!
