the clock keeps ticking
Friday, May 02, 2014
Its really scary looking at your clock. All those goals and dreams you have, they all take time. And yet we seem to get busy with other things. As for I finally reached the time and stage of life I can really work on my to do list. Go on those trips I've been putting off. Eat out more often. Have the fun I want to have. And after a few SW and I can sit on the porch and watch the world go by,
Well, time for a plan "B". SW is fading away into dementia. I have just had bariatric surgery. If I go to a fair or festival just down the street. She wants to come along. But after just five minutes she ready to come home. I just had bariatric surgery, so eating is real difficult. And who knows when that old clock is going to stop. Will ever get to do those things I want to do? See those places I want to see? It may never happen.
Still there are things that are working well. Recently, SW moved into my daughter house. I get to see the Grandkids more. I do enjoy having more play mates. I'm down over 100 pounds in six months so there is more that I can do. I've gotten active at the local Senior Center, and found new friends there. I being slowed down I do have time to finally do that writing I've been going to do. I need to find a way to get out more, get some story telling gigs. They bring great joy to me and others as well.
Yeah, my vision of today isn't working out as planned. But I'm doing better with plan "B". Not ready to give up on life yet. I got to keep going even if I must make a plan "c".
